Crysis and Crysis Warhead 7+ Years Later Reviewed

Recommended Posts

The game that jumped started my urge to build! Sounds lame but after having a pre-built with an aging AGP graphics card, this of all games was the one that pushed my PC gaming budget into full retard mode. Anyone else have a similar experience?

Not quite. It was never a specific game for me, but the desire to be able to play the latest games. For what it's worth though, I can still remember the improvement an AGP Radeon 9550 gave to Warcraft III years ago, and playing Shattered Horizon (a Futuremark made game) on an integrated GPU before I got a discrete (I just hadn't gotten it yet). Somehow managed to get a kill in that game when under 15 FPS.

Top 5 FPS of all time for me.  This game should be remastered.  Would love to see it in action optimized for today's hardware.

It was actually the Metro: Last Light trailer that did it for me.  Thought it looked awesome, but I knew my old economy desktop with an entry-level discrete GPU wouldn't be up to snuff.  So, I upgraded my computer and set up surround sound.  Still haven't played the game or its predecessor. XD

 

Same with Crysis.  One of them is on my Steam list and I got as far as having it installed at one time, but haven't actually gotten around to playing it.
