Playing Crysis on my Core2Duo Win7 Gamer @1080p. Got distracted back in the day and never played all the way thru.
1, 2, 3 run on a GT 710 with GDDR5 very good at 720p and look much more better than new games.

A little comparison:
BFv 720p all low (20 fps) looks like shit
C3 720p medium (35 fps) looks very good

I've got Crysis 2 on my main, but it's win10 and it's not friendly with Crysis 1. I am though tempted to pull the GT1030 I have in my Z220 and see how it runs in my 7 machine. I don't have a 720p native monitor though. My Z220 is on my 58" 4K.

Seriously enjoyed this game. The story, game play, humor, and soundtrack were a blast. I need to figure out what to play next, and then eventually go back and play as female Dani and do a couple of things different.

Yeah but that probably will be 10 years from now because Nintendo needs something to sell their Switches. On other hand, last time I tried Nocturne I got my ass handed to me on normal difficulty.

I think it is good to alternate big AAA title long games like that with an indie short game. I recommend, A Short Hike, To The Moon, Finding Paradise, A Bird Story, Slay the Spire, Dead Cells, My Friend Pedro, etc.

I played Forza 5 using the game pass and it's just 4 with a different setting. It played fantastic though and looked good.

It's fun until you get flooded with markers in every freaking spot. Sensory overload to the max!

Forza Horizon 5 is the second game of the year (only bested by Village). Ahead of Forza 4, with certain minuses.
The most impressive part is the performance. No idea what they did, but at 4k and 39fps average this has no lag, it feels fast and responsive. Any other 39fps game will hurt my eyes. This is butter smooth.
Incredible visuals. The only downside to that eye-candy is Mexico. Too much desert and the city architecture is lacking. Forza 4 with the Uk architecture really had something impressive to show.

One more thing to watch out for, cars are not too many. The variety is short. I did not find many of my favorites. Right now counting almost 200+ cars, most of the ones that I loved are included in Forza4, but not in F5. ...who knows, maybe they will be added gradually with new updates.
I have a lot to say about this, because it really impressed me, if you wanna make up your mind before purchasing you can watch my review here.

Played few tracks of Dirt Rally 2.0 with VR yesterday with my friend, that is just awesome to play even with a controller (I was too lazy to install that wheel and pedals :D). Now I'll go with few rounds of CSGO..

Bought FFX/X-2 for dirt cheap two weeks ago because stupid gamepass version won't support mods that let you run JP voiceover with EN text. Really enjoying story so far, only that stupid blitzball is PITA but luckily you can just ignore it and move on with the game. Soundtrack is amazing and this track really hits me in the feels:

No CTD's over here. All I get is random "We can't sync your data" on launch, but it might be linked to some updates that have to be downloaded.
