Why Crysis still melts the fastest gaming PCs a decade after release:
It's time for a remaster, remake - or sequel.
From: Alex Battaglia (Eurogamer)
Here's Alex's full 20-minute deep dive of what made Crysis so special,
and how good a sequel could be using today's technology.
It's been ten years since Crysis first released on PC. In 2007, it pushed real time rendering to new heights and spawned the memetic phrase, "but can it run Crysis?". Never had a game released that pushed hardware and engine technology so much, and never has one since. In fact, combine the latest and greatest Intel Core i7 8700K overclocked to 5.0GHz with an Nvidia Titan Xp and there'll still be areas of the game that drop beneath 60fps - even at 1080p. For its own very specific reasons, Crysis is still more than capable of melting the most modern, top-end PCs, but regardless, it remains a phenomenal technological achievement. It deserves a remaster at the very least, but a franchise of this standing really deserves a full next-gen sequel, with state-of-the-art rendering and back-to-basics gameplay.

Because Crysis will forever be the greatest benchmark for any PC and it is an astonishing accomplishment. I think if they ever make a remake, then the PC's will just blow up and riot against humans, lol. Talking about it reminded me that the game was actually really good. I need to play it some more, I still have some achievement to hunt.
