    I want more BC3 and ME3.

    RAGE looks to be OK though, I fear the Borderlands resemblance may be a meh for me as Borderlands got old for me very fast.

    I agree with Azn RAGE just looks "OK". If it wasn't for the large landscapes I'd even say it looks pretty bad for a triple A title to be released at the end of 2011 by a major developer. The other games also just look "OK". Hopefully gameplay makes up for it, but they could as well take Battlefield 3's approach of having great gameplay AND graphics.

    Well my guess is that if the consoles can run it, then your card should breeze right through it.

    Agree wile I still have faint hope of something like Metro 2033 (runs on xbox and still amazing on PC :)  ) These screen shots look great to me but we will see how the game looks during play. Would be easy to come up with a crazy looking still game play on the other hand.......

    PS3 and 360 are getting the game so that's not going to happen.

    mayankleoboy1rage looks boring with the same gameplay


    Yeah, no game released for the consoles is going to hurt a 5870/6950 or better card. I doubt BF3 will even do it, but we will see if they really put the PC first on BF3.

    According to this article from IGN,,those were taken from the Xbox-360 so don't sweat it. Besides, it's 2011, shouldn't we expect graphics this good?

    I think they could still improve the pines int Skyrim. Those branches look unnaturally straight like as they were out of a video game :p

    I'll be honest, I am a huge Bethesda fan. Morrowind was perhaps the best RPG I ever played. Oblivion though seemed more for the masses. I look at the Skyrim screen shots, and I notice one important thing, THEY LOOK EXACTLY LIKE THE OBLIVION ONES. Granted the textures may be *alittle* higher res (50-100% scale) but that can be done in about 30 seconds in photoshop (am I right Qarl?). So I hope that the graphics are infact just a rehash, and all the focus from the last 4 years is on gameplay.

    Just a thought. If the textures are higher res, then won't that call for a better light model? Maybe the screens look the same, but ingame will be better (IF, god willing, the game is porteed TO the console, and not from. Though Bethesda usually fully develops on all platforms).

    Disclaimer:

    I'm not photoshop guy. I am a 3d modeler (in school still) so the 30 seconds is an estimation.

    My oblivion is modded with Qarl TP3 and Natural environments (both are just swapping the mip maps from 1024 to 4048 using modded source files though), and I havn't run "vanilla" Oblivion in awhile.

    Skyrim is graphically disappointing here. Development has been held back by consoles quite significantly. I don't even need to upgrade my 4870.

    Well the trend seems to be... no graphic upgrades untill next console upgrades... if even then... Hey this mean that integrated gpu can run all games soon enough with full settings!
    Well, maybe we have to buy 3 displays to make new GPU's to get floored...
