Hasn't it been for quite long?
Perspectively, yes. But i mean 3D as in the environment and worms and other assets. There was less environmental variation in those games although the dynamic water was nice.

    GriftGFX If they can develop revenue streams that don't negatively impact the user experience.. most will try. (8 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX And while publishers may want to pursue service models, there are relatively good ways of handling that. Add to this the fact that most developers don't really want to ruin their games. (8 Hours ago)
