The computing power of today’s gaming systems allow developers to create real miracles. But some 20 years ago, all jaws dropped to the floor because of the image of the original
Quake! In general, the notorious “graphene” today is a universal measure of the quality of almost any game: gamers like technologically advanced projects in which the shadow of sharp fall, and some water circles disperse in physics, and that’s at one’s vase in the far corner of the room, which even can not go, there was no “ladders” in the throat.
Developers of this have realized so many AAA-projects began to appear dull script, annoying music, faceless and spineless characters or prostetsky gameplay that reliably shpaklyuyut good layer 4k textures, advanced physics and ultra shaders, from which at times I feel like screaming.
But some truly justify their grafonistost, and that’s about it, then we’ll talk today. You the top 10 games that will load on the graphics card is the fan.
Halo 5: Guardians (XONE)
343 Industries, 2015
Last installation in the series about the adventures of the famous in the entire galaxy Spartan has a good story, but first of all draws attention to the elegant graphics performance.
This is logical, because the series is famous not only for its deep and of detailed universe, but also a high level of adaptability.
Working on the game engine story clips look simply spectacular, and the game loses a bit of detail and level of gloss, but the difference is so small that it does not even pay attention. Especially when everyone is racing at the speed of 60 frames per second.
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter Redux (PC, PS4)
The Astronauts, 2015
This simulator walks in the forest was established on the Unreal Engine 4, which allowed developers to create a beautiful and highly detailed world with a fantastic range of drawing and beautiful panorama, which in spite of its visual splendor is still fraught with a piece of dark and frightening atmosphere.
For marvelous facade is clearly hiding something sinister, and wandering through the woods, riding in an old tram and rummaging in the trash dilapidated houses abandoned villages, thanks to realistic graphics plunge into the world with his head.
Forza Horizon 3 (PC, XONE)
Playground Games, 2016
One of the most beautiful racing games of the current generation, which is the best demonstrates the capabilities of the console Xbox One – Forza Horizon 3. The game takes place in Australia, and the artists of the Playground and Turn 10 could convincingly convey all the beauty of the continent, with its dry deserts, dense jungles and pretty towns.

Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (PC, PS4, XONE)
CD Projekt RED, 2015
CD Projekt RED, the authors already legendary trilogy of The Witcher, in the process of developing its own engine written, called REDEngine.
“The Wild Hunt” looks nice with its endlessly mysterious backwaters, snow-capped mountain peaks, tiny villages and picturesque thickets. A reverent attention even to the smallest details, beautiful special effects magic, water physics and other subtle, but are important for dipping the little things make the world truly alive.
Battlefield 1 (PC, PS4, XONE)
EA DICE, 2016
Games DICE always looked just gorgeous (thanks, Frostbite Engine), but this first-person shooter, which is set during World War I, lifts the bar even higher than usual. Muddy trenches, parched deserts and dense forests; menacing tanks, terrifying armored airships and huge – if you really are on the front lines, and from each of your steps may depend on the outcome of the war. You can completely disable the interface for full immersion.
Batman: Arkham Knight (PC, PS4, XONE)
Rocksteady Studios, 2015
Despite the very hard start, coupled with hundreds of angry comments owners broken PC-version, and even stop sales of Steam, this story of a fighter against crime in tight latex remembered by many.
Going Betsy from one generation of gaming systems at the other gave developers access to significantly more processing power, just as in the case of Assassin’s Creed, for example, possible to create a more extensive and detailed world, which is fully able to convey a gloomy tone steeped in crime and lawlessness Arhema.
And all the visual power of the game shows the size of the carriage of Batman, which occupies 160 gigabytes on your hard drive.
Horizon: Zero Dawn (PS4)
Guerilla Games, 2017
It is amazingly beautiful game that unfolds in the distant future, where people share their world with a variety of robots.
The Guerilla Games have long been dealing with the iron consoles from Sony, so it was not difficult to create a stunning 4K world of flora and fauna, hitherto unseen in any game – a kind of symbiosis with primitive postapokalipsisa. Well, all these brilliant kiberzveri, behind which you can watch for hours, beat off German igrodelov need to produce another simulator hunting hogs poor – here it do all sorts of fun.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End (PS4)
Naughty Dog, 2016
Sometimes it seems that Uncharted 4 PS4 uses resources at 100 percent and even finds some hidden reserves of the system, which are not even suspected of engineers. Otherwise, do not explain how the game manages to do all that work at the level of detail insane almost every cobblestone.
Texture, work with light and shadows, special effects, physics – all in this game is done simply on the phenomenal level. Now we wait to Naughty Dog and remaster Crash Bandicoot not let us down – where these components are equally important.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands (PC, PS4, XONE)
New game Ghost Recon series about the advanced detachment of the Ghosts and the good fight against the powerful drug cartels caught the attention of the players still in the E3 2015. Spectacular movie , Imagine Imagine Dragons’s , dynamic gameplay and a beautiful picture – just nuts, and not a game.
There were of course concerns, because Ubisoft like to embellish your presentation, but they dissipated release: Wildlands in practice does not look worse than in their trailers. Moreover, Anvil game engine allows you to render a 16 square kilometers of stunning unique landscape, partly generated procedurally. At GDC conference was even a whole lecture on the toolkit developers from Ubisoft.
DOOM (PC, PS4, XONE)
id Software, 2016
In already distant 2004 Doom 3 has become famous in the gaming community not only as one of the most spectacular interactive journey to hell and back, but also ahead of its time as the technological projects. Shadows, textures, work with lighting at the same time scared and impressed.
But progress does not stand still and iron today allows for much more. In the new Duma blood hlyschet as realistic fountains, washing of the protagonist and an elaborated environment. Perhaps hardened gamers DOOM today are not afraid of how 13 years ago, but is still able to impress all!
