Most Demanding Games

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
What are the most demanding games? Like top 5. Don't count Dirt 3 though, its not out yet.

I don't know for sure, but I have a really hard time seeing many people max out Shogun 2 (with high DoF, SSAO, 8x AA, etc) and maintain 60+ FPS constant. Maybe it doesn't like my CPU, but even without any additional checkbox features, Ultra Unit Detail drags my FPS down to like 9-10 during large battles.

Metro 2033, Call of Pripyat with the Complete Mod, Mafia 2 with PhysX, and Crysis are the ones I find the most demanding for me.
In progress.

Yeah Mafia 2 seems pretty tough. Crysis 2?
post #5 of 23
Not even close. Most mid-range systems can max Crysis 2. Some call it optimization, some call it overdone blurring, "fake" AA, and low-res textures.

Crysis, Metro 2033, ehhh.... ermm.... no clue past that. Maybe the first half hour of Stalker Clear sky.

I'm still sticking with Shogun 2. I can play Crysis and Metro at max (no AA) and get playable framerates. Shogun 2 can't come close.

Shogun 2, Metro 2033, and Crysis hands down, just kinda drops off from there really i think. There are of course a buncha titles coming up that's gonna prolly be stressing everyone...

Metro 2033, I believe is the most GPU intensive game on the market right now? Not sure though, cba to google it.

Crysis/Crysis Warhead, though released in 2007, was way ahead of its time graphics-wise, and is still pretty hard to max out today.

I heard GTA4 was pretty CPU-Intensive, but I haven't been able to test this theory before... I also head an i5/i7 could max it effortlessly, so it's up to you.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Seems to be a very popular choice, never played it though.

I'm GUESSING flight simulators would be pretty hard to max out, can't be sure though.

Hope this helps
