"Nuh uh, it doesn't."
"It really does, just look at that."
"That doesn't look better than THIS!"

Bad troll is a bad troll. You should feel bad about yourself.

Wait, do you want to know what games take advantage of the "powah" or what games have graphics like KZSF?

We need some fresh ideas in this site. So stale.

So how likely is it that this thread will be added to the pile of TC's locked troll threads?

Any game that supports resolutions > 1080p.

Consoles are only now occasionally hitting 1080P + 60 FPS if that tells you anything.

Classic PS4hasnogames.

Makes a thread, gets locked, rages, tells us we're all nerds and that he's done with this, makes another PC bashing thread posed as a question within 5 days. This is like the 5th time man. Come on.

May be . But the games that I listed sold lot of GPUs on their release and Hard Reset devs confirmed that the game is PC exclusive because consoles can't handle it . That's why they didn't release Shadow Warrior for PS3 and Xbox 360 as well and now it is being ported to PS4 and X1 .

Crysis Warhead is PC exclusive , Crysis is totally different game on consoles . Same goes for Witcher 2 . ArmA 3 , not possible . Crysis 3 , alot better on PC . Battlefield games ; 24 players on consoles , 64 players on PC . Company of Heroes and FEAR : Benchmark games of 2005 and 2006 , sold lot of GPUs . Still no game to top FEAR's AI .

yeah that game fear was really something wasn't it

I hope we get a good game soon again, allthough i played wolfenstein the last couple of days and i was pleasantly surprised. Glad someone still knows how to make decent game.

Certainly voids the argument of better character models.

#23 Posted by PapaTrop (474 posts) -

My question is "who cares?"

I'm just glad my PC has more games than Killzone, Knack.............Infamous........................remakes.................

That's why I game on PC. I don't play for the graphics. Probably why my PC just celebrated its 5th birthday.

It's been used as an observation for the entire game graphically before.

Really interested in new Wolfenstein but that thing is huge . Takes alot of disc space , so I'm finishing other games before trying it out .

yeah it is huge, but it is really worth it.

I started playing it a couple of days ago and haven't stopped since

It's a long time ago I had that.

#28 Posted by Wasdie (49613 posts) -

Plenty, and what's really surprising is that a lot of them are multiplats.

Crysis 3 and Battlefield 4 push PC GPUs hard. Crysis 3 pushes some serious rendering that isn't matched and BF4 lets you render at double your resolution as well as applies a serious amount of detail to each scene that is just not on the console versions.

The Witcher 2 still pushes graphics hard as well.

In addition to those, Star Citizen is blatantly pushing graphic rendering to a level we've never seen before. Even in its extremely unfinished state, the amount of detail in the alpha assets surpasses anything I've ever seen in a video game before.

Very few pc games are actually taxing on the hardware... according to latest Steam data.

The games herms play the most could be played on an ipad or device of equal power.

something that shows a considerable advantage over killzone shadow fall.

#35 Posted by AdrianWerner (27983 posts) -

Arma III and Rome II: TW are great examples, because they use all that power to push scale, while retaining a good level of detail. Something that just doesn't happen on consoles.

All the multiplats that the consoles struggle to run with any consistency the PC is running at 1080p (or better depending on the rig/monitor) at 60 frames.

they push pc gpus because they are poorly coded garbage. bf4 pc adds AA and slightly better lod over the ps4 version. nothing more.

uh oh better make room for dat powah!

#43 Posted by MiiiiV (322 posts) -

Arma 3 and Rome II TW come to mind, as they have incredible scale. Arma 3 has great graphics considering the massive scale, unprecedented draw and lod distance, compared to any other shooter.

what is out now that actually shows a difference between lets say Killzone shadow fall and a pc game?

KZSF on the other hand has pretty poor draw and lod distance, especially when considering it's engine only draws pretty small playable areas the lod distance is not very impressive, every playable area that is slightly far away (but still in rock throwing distance) is either blurry or covered in fog.
KZSF looks great overall though, everything that's up close looks really good and the character models are probably the best in the genre.

pc gaming powah!

#45 Edited by naz99 (1203 posts) -

Considering I run most my games at 6000x1080 with 4xaa I would say they nearly all use the "Powah"

And you are basically just talking about superficial graphics then?

Not other ways to use computing power like rendering a 270 km island in arma 3 or displaying 10,000+ units on screen ala Rome 2?

DCS games use the power to offer a fully simulated versions of real aircraft and all you talk about is how it looks...I thought pc gamers were the gfx whores? *Derp*
