What PC game has the highest hardware requirements? - Page 3

post #21 of 99
Thread Starter 
So, thus far, the general consensus is that the FPS games Crysis and Metro are the biggest resource hogs and that they seem to be taxing player's GPUs the most. Traditionally RTS games have had the biggest draw on CPU's, due to the demands of trying to give a computer the strategy abilities of a human. Does anybody play a RTS,Empire Building, or other type of game that should be included in this list?

P.S. How do I make the thread title appear in BOLD? The obvious things like using the bold text tool isn't doing the trick for me.

The thread appears in bold if there are new posts in it lol.

Anyway, RTS games are not CPU heavy due to brain simulation, that's pretty non-intensive task. SC2 is CPU heavy due to physics. Other RTS games are light.

Crysis is heavy to GPU due to massive vRam requirements, Crysis2 is heavy to GPU due to tessellation and other DX11 goodies.

Thanks for enlightening me on the bold thread deal-LOL.

I disagree with your assessment about RTS games not being CPU heavy. They have been since the dawn of computer gaming and they keep getting more and more complex. Having a CPU figure out how to explore, choose resources, develop them, use them, build an army of hundreds or thousands of units, attack you, and myriad other tasks simply takes more CPU power than having a few zombies chase you around in a FPS.

I have read in more than one place that Microsoft Flight Simulator X will consume any amount of resources made available to it. Way,way back in "the day" Flight Simulator was used as a pratical debugging tool. If the hardware could run it without the PC locking up or crashing, you were doing something right.
