We need to stop defining “progress” in games as “better hardware”

Opinion by Matt S.

"Serious gamers need serious performance. Get ready for a new standard in gaming."

This ad on Twitter, by Intel, announcing some new hardware or other that it had developed, reminded me to get these long overdue thoughts down on the virtual paper: this idea that improvements and progress in gaming are tied to developing better hardware is utter nonsense. In fact, it's downright damaging to video games as an artistic medium.
