Best game ever made in the history of existence. No game will ever top Crysis. Until Crysis 2 comes out that is.......

@ GTAIVcool Do you know at all how the gaming industry works? Sure, you constantly hear of all the devs complaining about how PC games get pirated, and how they won't make any games for it, and that its a "dying business." Truth is...it's NOT a dying business at all. Companies are just looking for excuses to hide behind for their own failures. Blizzard's World of Warcraft: WOTLK has sold over 11.5 MILLION (that's just for the game too), don't tell me you think that's a dying business. Bethesda's Fallout 3 was first leaked by piraters for the XBOX 360 (you think consoles don't have pirates?). But It still went on to sell record-setting sales for the company! They were smart enough to NOT put a crippling DRM and just put a simple disc check and trust their gamers. Spore did not follow suit. Guess what happened to that nightmare? Don't hide behind excuses. Make the right choices.

BayBoy:Mr. Molyneux is a money hungry man,who said the Pc is a dying business.Yet it seems Fable 2 will come out for the PC too.Why?Why agree to make a game for a dying business?The answer.Money.I really don't like a person who says such a thing,yet he's hoping for more money from that too,and than complains that it gets pirated.It gets pirated because of your stupid statements.

Well, you've all misunderstood me. There's nothing wrong with CryTek, it's an absolutely amazing company, who make absolutely amazing games. Crysis and Crysis Warhead are awesome games. The problem is with Cevat himself. If you watch enough of his videos and interviews, you will know the type of person he is. He is self-centered, and will often retract statements more often than he should. Since now with all the updates and patches, its more optimized that ever and I continue to play Crysis but I hope he isn't pocketing more money than he deserves. He simply likes to take all the credit too much. If you haven't noticed then its just too bad. Again, nothing wrong with the game, its epic. But the CEO is such a case. If you know who Peter Molyneux is, then you know what im talking about.

i could run crysis fine with everything maxed out at 1680x1050 with no AA..it gave me around 40-45 fps on an 8800gtx with 2 gb of ram which is pretty playable for me...i dunno y ppl keep dissing crytek if their computer cant run crysis..how many pc's first ran doom 3 when it came out? get a job and buy a decent video card. u dont really have to spend 500$..crysis is a fantastic game with lots of breathtaking graphics enjoy it or buy a wii.

I'm kind of with gwokage in regards to Hypybayboy's comments. I ran Crysis on 1GB o Ram and a 8600gt 512MB vid card . It wasn't running at 100FPS it was more like 24FPS but the point is it ran on 1GB of Ram. Consider what your saying before engaging the fingers on the Keyboard. Are you able to build a Game Engine ? Can you pull a Team of People together for a technically challenging project of ANY kind within the Gaming Industry ? If you answer yes to these questions you may have a stone to through at the Crytek Team but i'm guessing most of us answered No to both questions. Anyhow i'm happy as Santa on a Christmas Cake that the Crytek peeps are still hard at work producing awesome interactive art. :D

Developers will be developers, it even applies to consoles if you think of it well. If you have a ps2 and want to play next gen games, you'll have to buy a ps3 or an xbox 360. Same goes for pc hardware, Crysis was made to break the bounds in graphics. I think people should stop complaining about how bad cervat is. Crysis warhead will soon be playable on low end machines as well as Crysis. If they did not care then they would leave it for high end only.

It's just to bad that neither the 360 or the PS3 have the power to run this game. It's just to much eye candy.
