Metro Exodus+God Of War (2018). Both are big titles and both are upgraded from their E3 versions. Downgrading is not well tolerated by people. If you can't do any stuff, just don't show that stuff. Simple as that.I challenge anyone to find a major development title that did not "downgrade" graphics at some point in the production cycle.
Normalizing downgrade won't help people who doubt buying game nor devs.
