    Some weeks before Crysis' Release, there were rumors about the first nvidia graphics card with 1 GB (!) of memory at my school. And I will never forget, as a friend of mine reacted to this like "1 GB VRAM? Nobody needs this much!" xD

    Just for shits and giggles I reinstalled crisis (original, not remastered) on my 8700K, 32 GB ram, rtx 3090 equipped system. Believe it or not, at times it STILL dropped to circa 80 fps, including in the famous "first view of island at dawn" shot after the intro sequence and night section. I was gobsmacked, I guess a lot of advancement since 2007 haven't been about pushing traditional rendering faster, but using more efficient techniques? It was lolz that's for sure

I think that’s kinda sellout ngl

    Ummm of course it can. 3080 is a top of the line GPU and Crysis is outdated. Even the remastered isn’t much more power demanding.

  55. Justus Merchant

    Justus MerchantMonth ago

    I manage to get a smooth 60 frames playing Crysis Remastered in 2k HD (1440p) on my GeForce RTX 2060 but I have to play it on medium graphics. Even on medium the graphics look breathtaking, and most importantly, the game itself has aged like a fine scotch whiskey. Not only did they excessively optimize controller support and general gameplay fluidity (while still giving you the option to use the original setup.) The game itself is still just a good game. I remember how I felt when I first played Goldeneye for N64; it was a mind shattering experience. 20 years later, it doesn't even hold a candle to some of the most bland titles in the FPS genre it helped birth. Crysis, on the other hand, still makes me feel like an absolute herculean chad beast monster when I pummel men and aliens into mulch with my augmented war fists or when I take down biomechanical Lovecraftian war squids with a nightmarish arsenal of customizable weaponry. So far everything about this game has served to remind me of what action games are meant to feel like. The pace, the linear story, the fast paced violence, the voice acting and story; it was and still is a game that knows exactly what it wanted to be and became exactly that. The classic meme "Can it run Crysis?" resulted from Crysis setting a graphical benchmark for several gaming generations, but among all of the praise regarding its graphical achievements, another question arises. Not a question about hardware, but a question about innovations in gameplay; "Can I still enjoy Crysis?" I can, because I believe it set a benchmark for action games as well.

    The original Crysis is a masterpiece a game that was ahead at its time but to be honest this remastered is just an unpolished game that I think they make it unoptimized on PC version on purpose maybe to keep the meme alive or something either way it's so retarded to make a game unoptimized on purpose

    Why is there no ray tracing setting in your settings? My version has rtx and the impact it has on performance is devastating, I'm guessing the game didn't have rtx at launch. I bet you won't go over 60 fps with rtx cranked up.

    Piss poor optimisation yet again, intentionally - all in the name of trying to ruin a GPU where other devs focus on creating games to utilise the GPU cinematically, with realism in every aspect of the game, with High FR and still most of the memory left.
