News Comments > Crysis: No More Patches, Linux Server on Hold

I'm pretty sure I just read a tech review of an Nvidia top vid card, running on a top end system.. and one of the games they tested was Crysis.. and it still ran like poop.

That was the one reason I didn't get the game.. absurd sys reqs.

Fascinating. So, games that have high requirements because they push the envelope are "absurd"? I guess I've been confused for many years over just how we got some of the graphics that, apparently, lots of today's gamers currently consider non-demanding.

XWA was ok, but yeah BC was a definite disappointment.

I enjoyed the businessman/smuggling part of XWA, but it went stupid once it turned into a sort of poor X-Wing sequel. They dumped your character completely at the end.

I have it installed, actually. The game still impresses me in ways today. It was definitely ahead of its time.

It may be a bit of a disjointed adventure, but it was definitely unreal. It took you on one hell of a ride, that's for sure. And it didn't end in only a few hours like other big games today.

And let's not forget how much it changed Epic. Jazz Jackrabbit + Pinball games to a super huge franchise, licensable in-demand tech. They jumped to the top of the gaming world with that one. I only wish Epic was as adventurous still. GoW is so very disappointing.....

Because they will, unfortunately, make more money on the consoles and they know it. It's not about any sort of loyalty.

FEAR semi-sucked anyway. This sequel probably isn't going to be all that thrilling either.
