[–]DIABLO258 257 points258 points  (19 children)

Crysis came out only three years after GTA San Andreas. Think about that.

[–]deaddonkey 96 points97 points  (15 children)

Meanwhile, triple A released from 2015-2018 look the same to me. 2000s had insane graphics progression

[–]LuckyNo13 56 points57 points  (9 children)

Well i think we could stand some progression in other areas for a little while. Better physics and AI to begin with.

[–]OSUfan88 27 points28 points  (2 children)

Yeah. I feel like we're mainly going through a "resolution bump" right now. Graphics quality is basically staying the same.

[–]That_HomelessGuy 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Polygon counts for models increases about 10 to 20% per year give or take a few thousand vertexes here or there.

[–]thesmellofwater 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Exactly. I like how games look right now. Having more advanced AI and physics would increase the realism. Imagine playing battlefield 4 but with buildings that don't collapse and crumble the same way everytime. Or getting killed by a ricochet. Or getting outsmarted by a bot. Or having bots that act more similarly to real players rather than bots.

[–]mandown72 3 points4 points  (3 children)

AI seems to have got deliberately worse. Especially if you compare Return to Castle Wolfenstein to New Order.

[–]LuckyNo13 2 points3 points  (1 child)

The best AI I have seen is probably in Insurgency. Idk who coded it but hopefully the new Insurgency keeps it as tight, if not better.

[–]Chosenwaffle 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My theory is that modern AI is so effective that now it's more about finding out the best way to tone it down.

[–]YachiruTheKittyKat 3 points4 points  (2 children)

as someone who was deep in the very early modding scene, (early 2000s homeworld mostly.) the problem is lack of focus on optimization.

the basic fact is developers have gotten lazy to an extent, the fact that computers are so much better means that you can be sloppy and not really suffer consequences.

basically when 3d gaming was first developed, spending a good deal of time to reduce a model by 100-200 polygons would have notable effects on performance, while today's games can handle magnitudes higher, so a model might have thousands of redundant polygons and not produce any noticeable lag, until you put 2-3 dozen of them on the screen when the developers were only expecting a dozen at a time.

tl:dr excess computing power means developers are not as concerned with optimizing fine detail, but in the end they will add up and cause lag, the fact that we have such powerful computers make it more time efficient to make the whole thing without concern and then optimized was is need to fix performance issues, while back in the day optimization was the heart of every step in development

[–]circlhat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not laziness, just no longer necessary , didn't we criticize Lucas to death on focusing on small details such as graphical presentation.

Focusing on being fun beats graphics, and you probably want to port your game to other less powerful platforms.

[–]flamingboard 0 points1 point  (0 children)

"That's a good system, but can it run Crysis?"

[–]Lucifa42 142 points143 points  (17 children)

Wasn't Crysis still used years later for benchmarking?

[–]Sly_Mong00se 127 points128 points  (13 children)

It still is. Plenty of "modern" storeboughts can't run it.

[–]That_HomelessGuy 51 points52 points  (9 children)

I still use crysis as my prebench when building systems for people. If it's a gaming rig has to run crysis at any graphics setting without the GPU installed for it to pass bench. Then the GPU goes in and I rebench it on crysis to test the boost in perfirmance before using a dedicated benching tool.

My policy is it needs to run well enough without a dedicated GPU just in case they need to take it out for any reason.

[–]darthos 21 points22 points  (1 child)

I build systems for a lot of friends and family etc. I've never thought to run it without a GPU in. I'm just curious what hardware you use, the settings commonly tested in-game and what kind of results you are generally looking for and what do you consider good/bad?

Seems like an interesting way to test things. Sorry for all the questions; I'm legitimately curious.

[–]That_HomelessGuy 9 points10 points  (0 children)

The hardware varies by price and customer for the most part. I personally run an i5 3330 and a 7700hd series GPU on my work rig but I'm in the middle of replacing the main board right now since I popped my last one so a GPU upgrade might well be on the horizon.

I like to use Kingston hyperx where I can purely for the lifetime guarantee to be honest but I only just had to replace a single 8 year old 2GB DDR2 card recently so their reliability is worthy of their warrantee.

I go for minimum settings to start with vsync off, AA off, etc and get a max frame count. If its stable and anywhere over 30 I load up the sandbox and throw in a few ai on screen to see how they effect frames in idle and alert. What I'm looking for here is to see how it handles the ai calculations in different states along with the transitions to the alert state always being a frame killer after crazy physics in crysis.

Its mainly because I'm familiar with it as a benchmark I'm used to.

I'm looking to mainly see what the flat minimum frame rate is and to see how well CPU calculations are performing. Pathfinding, group navigation, decision making and alert transition. The last one is to only one you want to see a significant solid freeze in frames for when groups of ai transition. This is because they all operate on triggers that change a group of values and start more complicated routines with more in world raycasts and decision making trees. They all try and make the first decision in those few frames after one is alerted causing a drop in frames due to CPU cycles not being able to do them all in one step. You are mainly looking for stutters as minor issues and hangs as bad. A minimum frame rate of 25 to 30 is actually good without ai but it's better to achieve a flat frame rate over varied frame rate by limiting frames and looking to see if the frames drop. But a minimum of 30 flat is unrealistic on this kind of bench.

Good : steady frames even if just the frame drops are consistent and "momentary" on low settings.

Bad : long frame drops in general and lots of changes in frame rate when looking at a static view. (This indicates the there is a delay in memory or the CPU that causes a wait between draws as it catches up)

On certain Asus boards audio anomalies during changes in frame rate are an obvious issue that happens. I've noticed it most on Asus boards with nvidia onboard graphics "suites" though.

As for parts, i5 is popular, nvidia cards are popular and surprisingly most people still want ddr3 systems. I have a preference for Asus and gigabyte for main boards myself. If all you want is a single GPU then there are a lot of decent mini atx boards to do the job. But if you plan on expanding or running hot (overclocked) I'd say get a normal atx board.

Hope that covers your questions. :)

Edit : Thought I'd point out the audio anomalies I describe on certain Asus boards is not present in all cases just that I've noticed it mostly with those combinations of onboard graphics and I've never seen the issue present itself with a dedicated GPU installed.

[–]DoubleN22 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Wait, so your testing the integrated graphics everytime? That's as pointless as testing a CPU at the store before you buy it. (I'm not talking about the silicon lottery)

[–]That_HomelessGuy 8 points9 points  (3 children)

There's more to the performance of a PC than graphics. The onboard for modern PCs can handle crysis minimum requirements no problem. The test is to see how well the rest of the system picks up and compensates. Did you know that the AI in video games are usually calculated on the CPU? Did you know memory speed can be a serious bottleneck in gaming? Modern graphics cards do a lot of compensating with their own dedicated memory pipelines and such. This memory isn't available to all games in all contexts and the rest of the system is forced to pick that up.

Hence testing the system without an external GPU. It gives you a good starting point to measure the card against too.

[–]DoubleN22 4 points5 points  (1 child)

My policy is it needs to run well enough without a dedicated GPU just in case they need to take it out for any reason.

You specified that you where testing the CPU integrated graphics using Crysis. Not the rest of it. You are correct.

[–]That_HomelessGuy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes that's why the system needs to be able to pick up what the onboard GPU can't. If the system can run on the onboard graphics it passes my standards. I specified that "it needs to run well enough without a dedicated GPU", not that I was testing the onboard graphics specifically.

A lot of my customers are league and cs players who turn down graphics to get all the extra they can out of their frames. They install graphics cards to take the strain off the rest of the system in competitive play and for casual gaming in general. Not necessarily for the graphics power directly.

I run an i5 with a 7700 hd series GPU on my work rig for similar reasons. Workflow speed is my particular need.

[–]Draaxus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I thought you meant Crysis 3, and was wondering how the fuck you would run it at max settings without a GPU

[–]thesmellofwater 0 points1 point  (2 children)

That's crazy to think that my buddies all had rigs that could run it back then.

[–]ghaelon 0 points1 point  (1 child)

mine could run it fine. on medium to low. which looked better than ultra for games at the time. took about 5 years before my gpu got upgraded enough to run everything on ultra

[–]Khryn_Tzu 39 points40 points  (0 children)

It sure was. It was also a point of contention for new rigs if you could run Crysis on the higher graphics levels.

[–]Sipuli69 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I still use the 3rd one.

[–]reymt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Some parts of the 3rd one are running so frikking bad, never seen a straightforward shooter put so much load on the CPU.

I wonder if that's just a result of the graphics, or bad optimization.

Nostalgic meme

[–]win7macOSX 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Read that as "Novalogic meme" and got truly nostalgic

[–]middleground11 13 points14 points  (3 children)

I remember playing F22 raptor and hearing all the talk about Novalogic wanting to make future games with the "integrated battlefield", i.e. tanks, infantry and planes together.

Fast forward to 2018 and most games with this are generally infantry players complaining/whining about getting shot by vehicles, because they don't want to stop sniping other infantry to fight the vehicles...

[–]LuckyNo13 3 points4 points  (1 child)

F22 Raptor was such a good game. My friend and I used to compete with each other on the largest dollar amount of damage we could do to a friendly base with a single nuke.

[–]Hermanzurr 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Mannn that game made me feel so cool.

[–]win7macOSX 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They actually did realize a lot of their vision with Joint Operations. That game truly was ahead of its time. 150 players with ground and air vehicles... in 2004! They added tanks in the expansion but never got around to planes.

I would love nothing more than a behind-the-scenes look at what happened after those games were released. Allegedly the CEO was really full of himself and chased off a lot of the talent. I just can't understand going from having military contracts, the Delta Force series, Joint Ops, etc. to having to release the abortion of a remake of DF1 called Delta Force Xtreme 1 & 2 and then selling the company.

From what I can tell about Delta Force Angel Falls' development, their development model didn't scale well when working with next-gen engines. It's probably why they stuck with the Comanche engine for so long.

[–]Shutterstormphoto 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Literally just tested my new system this way. And yes, yes it can.

[–]emmerrei 1 point2 points  (0 children)

tryed it recently, and still drop framerate when something explode. Anyway with a i5 7500 and a RX 480 runs easily on the 100fps in 1920x1080. Maybe with a top tier cpu those fps drops can be eliminated, idk. At the launch of this game, in the 2007, the best pc on the market, was not able to run it at the ultra preset with a decent framerate. Like 15fps at 1280x1024.

Crysis 1 was the best of the 3, by far.

[–]joerocks79 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I never played 3 unfortunately, but 1 was by far the most fun to me. It was a cool open world with a unique non-humanoid alien faction. I can't even remember what 2 was like.

[–]Clyzm 9 points10 points  (1 child)

If you didn't play Warhead, do yourself a favour and play it. It's Crysis 1 but from Psycho's point of view. Shares the same style of large open areas and sandbox combat.

[–]yyyxxxcccvvvbbb 190 points191 points  (84 children)

They really don't. Try playing it at max settings now. It doesn't look nearly as good as nostalgia would have you believe.

The physics are super clunky and the AI is dumb as bread too. It's still a really fun game but it is definitely old.

[–]bishopweyland 24 points25 points  (62 children)

Out of interest, do you know what the benchmark game is now? Back then obvs it was Crysis, then for a time it was Metro 2033, I've not kept up with the times and I have no idea what it is now.

[–]Ninety9Balloons 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I played RenX for a bit, but I rarely found a server that was even close to full.

Sucks too because the game is actually pretty good. EA refuses to let the devs release it on Steam or another platform so the game is pretty much always going to be dead.

[–]leafsfan88 11 points12 points  (3 children)

PUBG, because popular and partly because it was so poorly optimized almost no one could run it for a while.

[–]WaffleKing110 13 points14 points  (4 children)

It’s probably the witcher 3 now. Great graphics, potentially enormous draw distance, etc.

[–]itchycuticles 23 points24 points  (2 children)

It's not that demanding. Also, Witcher 3's graphics fall more towards the artistically beautifully than technically stunning. Gerald looks pretty bad (technically) compared to Senua in Hellblade.

[–]Afishafishafishyohh 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yeah totally. The game is made to look it's best on the capabilities it's limited to. Doing this instead of trying to make it look as real as possible is usually a good choice I find. It's one of the many reasons the Legend of Zelda series holds up so well, they don't try to be as real as possible but instead try to portray an art style as best they can

[–]ElagabalusRex 2 points3 points  (5 children)

People don't talk about "the most photorealistic video game" anymore. We still talk about graphics, but for some reason we stopped comparing new releases to each other.

[–]bishopweyland 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Okay then, so graphically speaking which would be the benchmark? Crysis 3? Witcher 3?

[–]yyyxxxcccvvvbbb 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I've got no idea. I think that it has become a few different games now. Hyper realism is out of style a bit. I think that games like Cuphead are actually way more impressive than Crysis because the stylisation is out of this world and done so well.

I think that more resources go to large worlds, better AIs and other stuff nowadays.

[–]bishopweyland 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Totally agree with you on that, hyper realism is still very impressive because I know it's got lots of effort poured into it, but Cuphead, Hyper Light Drifter, I'm blown away by those games far more than any pretty face.

[–]Noggin-a-Floggin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I haven't heard the term "benchmark game" in a while and it really seems to be a 2000s thing. I remember when Doom 3 was the game that true gaming rigs had to run then Crysis and if there is a benchmark now I'm way too out of the loop to know what it is.

[–]TitaniumDragon 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It looks amazing for a 2007 game, but isn't up to modern standards.

Small screenshots of it make it look a lot better than it does at 1080p.

[–]Eat_Mor3_Puss 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It also runs like shit because it was never designed to take advantage of more than a couple cores/threads.

[–]brucecrossan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't know, with a few .ini tweaks it can still visually rival a modern game.

Textures and some models up close can be a bit dated. The fact that they invented ambient occlusion rendering in games, so SSAO does not hold up like HBAO+ etc. Sure, AI is a bit dense and some of the physics can go wonk at times due to the limitations they had to bake into the engine at the time.

The lighting and shadows are still amazing. Water is still almost the best you will see outside of a modern Assassin's Creed game. Facial animations are really good, even with the old mapping techniques used. It also uses real time rendering techniques like with wind, particles and godrays etc. For instance, if you throw a grenade, the explosion will generate a wave that will move trees and debris, simulated in real time. A lot of modern games still use tricks like pre-rendered animations for trees blowing in the wind etc. That is why Crysis was always considered "unoptimized". The fact is, there were a lot of subtle things going on under the hood to achieve what it did.

A lot of games that "looked good" for their time, date a lot worse than games that did not focus on graphics but rather on art style. That is why SNES games often still look better now than early 2000's games. But, due to the no compromises attitude Crytek took, Crysis still doesn't look too bad over a 10 years later. Not many games can say that when they become a decade old.

[–]SaltySeraphim 1 point2 points  (2 children)

looks pretty nice in 4k ultra still imo. not the best looking game ever but dont know that ive seen a game yet that handles foiliage as good as crysis does, the way every leaf will brush past a character model walking by.

so old, they are now trying to scam other companies...

[–]WoefulEnema 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's not in super-widesreen, of course it's old.

[–]LeoKnightGamer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So true!!

[–]spectreVII 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Still looks damn good.

I've got a reasonably modern computer (i5-7500 with a GTX970) and I still can't run Crysis on the highest settings at native 1440p resolution and hit 60FPS.

[–]Kurniet 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Seeing Crysis/Crysis Warhead always reminds me of my favorite multiplayer mode Ive ever played: Power Struggle. Giant maps, lots of players, and a currency system letting you upgrade your weapons or purchase vehicles to wreck havok with. Plus multiple different types of control points with different benefits to controlling them (weapons facory, alien crash site, etc) and finally getting a nuclear tank to destroy the enemies base with. I miss that damn desert map so much :*(

[–]Asdeft 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I do not even consider 10 year old games to be old though...

[–]myjazz65 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, the same thing happened to me recently but instead of Crysis, it’s BioShock.

[–]Saelyirna 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why have you done this to me?! lol

[–]everypostepic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Proof that at some point in the last 11 years, devs just gave up and said "Good enough" on the graphics.

[–]n0_camping4u 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What’s the best crysis ?

[–]sbeckley02 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What game is this?

[–]wrathoftheeggs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

r e a l e s e

[–]HylianEevee 0 points1 point  (0 children)

it would be in sixth grade

[–]keepcrazy 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Can someone recommend a current XBOX One FPS or adventure with graphics this pretty?

Specifically looking for something with beautiful scenery as you play. Doesn’t have to be brand new or whatever, just nice if gameplay didn’t suck...

Any recommendations?

[–]FBlack 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, eleven fucking years shit

[–]LazyTheSloth 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Post the title of the game in the post.

[–]spydercrystal 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Am I a 00’s kid or a 90’s kid? Are there two camps of 90’s kids? Are there the ones born in the eighties but were in middle/high school in the 90’s and then the ones of us born in the early nineties who were still genuinely “kids” in the 90’s and got all the revolutionary plasticrap toys of the decade, then went on to graduate high school before 2010?

[–]andreoidmem 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm a 2000's "kid" can confirm, felling old af.

[–]Spoon420Blaze 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Want to hurt yourself even more go and look at how long ago your favorite childhood shows were made

[–]MasterDavicous 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Merry Crysis

[–]freudis2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fuck you op

[–]DarkPrinny 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Crysis is still a decent stress test. Beautiful game, heavy on all resources, not made very efficiently, even today's games don't look as good. And made 11 years ago.

The truth is "can it run crysis". If you can run Crysis and the highest texture photogen mods at 4k at 60fps, your machine is the top 0.3% in the world

[–]SMJ1980 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What makes me feel old is that no one young can fucking spell anymore!!!

[–]Siesztrzewitowski 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As you get older, time seems to move faster.

[–]Watch_Dog89 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh trust me... as a 90's kid.... It's dawning on me that 10-11 years can make a huge difference... I know how to use dos, I know the sound of a dial-up modem connecting by heart, I was 5 when the show ReBoot came out (doesn't feel that long to me, but that was 24 years ago... WHAT!?!?!?!)

After a while, it starts to hurt the brain a bit :-P

Im just waiting for me to be talking about dial up internet one day and some kid'll say "That's a good story Grandpa!"

[–]ididntsaygoyet 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol, the only thing you should never screw up the spelling is whatever is in quotations, since it's a quote. Oh, 2000's kids...

[–]SaltyGrognard 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I did this the other day with Bioshock Infinite in a bet. I was all... that game just came out like 2 years ago...shit...

[–]VandaGrey 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And it still looks better then almost everything that gets released today.

[–]th30n3and0n1y 0 points1 point  (0 children)

God damn. I need to play the entire series again. Thanks op. Now I have a full schedule this week.

[–]FuccTheZucc 0 points1 point  (0 children)

yes I remember the release of Crysis it was a different world back then for one thing food cost less and dick cheney was still shooting people in the face on the weekends.

[–]JonTheAndroid 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Currently playing thru that game for the first time. I'm like half way done.

[–]LanikMan07 0 points1 point  (0 children)

second half is awesome.

[–]Hail_Dark_Ale 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I JUST finished the game after buying it last month. Man I love this game (even if it gets a little farfetched in the middle).

[–]JonTheAndroid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The part when the mountain starts falling apart on the tank level was so cool.

[–]Pankaj0123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just Woke Up Opened Reddit Saw These Post Started Feeling Old Went To Sleep Again

[–]DelusionalEye 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Am born in 2000, can confirm. Whenever I see things in the 2000's, it felt like a few years ago.

[–]ghaelon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

good ol crysis. which looks better than farcry 3, which came out 5 years later. hence why i feel very underwhelmed when playing it after finally picking it up.

[–]lawsend 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why can’t they make games look that good now?

[–]cyanide4suicide 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Honestly, Crysis 1 looks a bit dated already.

[–]Lord_Of_War714 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s the only guarantee in life. Getting old and dying.

[–]yacobson4 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I still think 07 was 3 years ago. Idk why I think 3 but ever since 2010 thats what i thought.
