Which game engine do you prefer? Well, I guess most of us will agree games churned out by either looks gorgeous, and as long as the overall gameplay is good, we can put the slight different in visuals aside. But apparently not the various game developers, who are at GDC 2012 having a headache choosing which engine to go for. Both game engines have had accomplishments in console, PC and online gaming, I guess in the end it is down right to the technical side of things and of course, the costs.
Unreal Engine 4 is currently being shown to a selected group of publishers, with a spokesperson saying that next generation game consoles will still be using Unreal Engine 3, while the “bigger scale” games will probably be using the sequel. A recent Unreal 3 Engine online game will be Blacklight: Retribution (link). I am not sure why, but I personally enjoy CryEngine 3 better with my recent experiences in ArcheAge (link) and Warface (link).
