    GTA IV does a good job at bringing most systems to it's knees. :)

    One of the most taxing, but for a very good reason:

    and that reason is that it's poorly coded ;p

    most games, i just never liked the earler vesions of GTA for 2 reasons, crapy grafix and bad/piontless gameplay
    i would try the new one, but no way would i buy it unless theyve upped the gameplay on it

    Sorry if I'm stupid, but why does your Crysis look so much gooder than mine (when I had a GTX 280)?

    Because that's not Crysis in game. And, I honestly don't see the point if it's not something we can use. From what someone posted, extensive commands were used for different renderer effects. To get shots like that you will probably need access to the full engine editor.

    Be that as it may, the IQ isn't what makes the game. It's the:
    -storyline
    -game play mechanics
    -etc

    What are you speaking of? I didn't say their weren't from the game how else would they be screenshot. This was discussed in another forum (before it was locked :) ) and it's not something folk will see when playing the game. Again, from what I've read some sort of extensive commands were used for different renderer effects (dynamic and advanced ToD system or something like that) were you may need full access to the editor. And if you take notice, there is no link to download and try this for ourselves in the link you provided. However, if you do find some sort of mod that will allow this by all means let us know.

    From what im hearing GTA IV is one of the worst in terms of system performance. But Crysis is still notorious for being hard to run.

    Well, I haven't played GTA IV (only FPS games) but CRYSIS is still a good measure of a systems capabilities. The original Far Cry was used to measure a systems capabilities and was used for several years. I am thinking that CRYSIS and CRYSIS Warhead will be used for awhile.
    I was hoping that FEAR 2 would be tough on my system like the original FEAR was. However it is not as I played through the game with everything maxed-out.
    My 2cents:)

    I dunno what mods/skins were used in the screenies, but I'm trying this "natural" mod which changes ToD settings to make it look realistic. I also use an extreme quality config from here:
