We all know how unbelievably gorgeous Crysis is, but what if the technology used to power the game was applied to something like, I don't know, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion? Would we be able to handle the pure sexiness of it all?
Find out for yourself by watching the video above or by downloading this higher-resolution version that'll fetch greater results. It's been a long time since I've played Oblivion, so perhaps I've let my mind create a mental image of how fantastic it looked to me back then and as a result, didn't see a huge difference between the switch to CryEngine 2.
But after viewing the downloadable video, everything looked leaps and bounds better, not just the foliage like the embed video would have me believe; it also helped that I did a quick Google image search to see how fuzzy my memory really was.
Above all, this video made me realize how badly I want Bethesda to create a new Elder Scrolls with those kinds of graphics.
Gamemaniac3434 It just occured to me that given the 99% probablility of there being an update pack to XCOM 2-ala Enemy Within-waiting for a while may be a better option, so that when I do get the game I get it in its optimal form-and on sale, to bring it below 90 totalDr Mel My mustache froze while walking home from work.

So dragons are evolved forms of ants, spiders and/or wasps ....... what?
Ckarasu Every time I hear "I don't understand why people like _____ game", I get annoyed. Of course you understand, if you've listened to what those people were saying. You just don't agree, and that's A-OK. I HATE Twilight, but I understand why people like it. RadicalYoseph Just tried playing the first Bayonetta game... it was really bad. Honestly I don't understand why Platinum games are so well regarded. None of them are really worthwhile.StriderHoang The first person I block is the person who talks shit about PlatinumTorchman Even though your waifus are shit Darth Wachen Finally, a blog that I can call my own, I feel accomplished somehow. Nekrosys Gonna be honest; this really made my day.
