There are some truly stunning games out there today, but they call for some heavy computer specs to run properly. Throughout this article, we discuss the most graphically demanding games on the market today.
When Cyberpunk 2077 was first released back in 2020, it was full of bugs and most people couldn’t get through the game without getting trapped in walls, glitching out, and much more. Since then, CD Projekt Red has released a series of patches to fix many of the glaring issues. However, exploring night city in its true glory will call for a quality graphics card – we favor the Intel® Arc™ Graphics at Lenovo.
Far Cry 6
Far Cry 6 brings players onto a fictional, yet beautiful, Caribbean Island nation inspired by Cuba. Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) plays the protagonist – dictator Antón Castillo. In true Far Cry fashion, players will need to liberate the island and defeat a series of bosses in an epic open-world adventure. To get the most out of the landscape and reach 60 FPS, players will need 60GB of storage, an Nvidia GTX 1080, and an Intel i7 or Ryzen 5 3600.
Dying Light 2
If parkour and drop-kicking zombies sound like your type of game, Dying Light 2 will be a perfect choice. Achieving 60 FPS calls for a powerful Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 alongside 16GB RAM. To store the game, you will need 60GB – we recommend investing in a hard drive with a 1TB capacity. This way, you won’t be constantly removing games to make way for new titles.
Metro Exodus is a first-person shooter that combines stealth and horror. Set within a post-apocalyptic Russian Federation, players will be engaged in combat against hostile computers and a range of monsters. This game utilizes ray tracing, which means you can use your Nvidia RTX 2060 to its full potential. Unfortunately, if you have a low-spec build, you will struggle to play the game because it has few options for scaling down the graphics.
Final Fantasy XV
Final Fantasy XV dropped onto our computer screens back in 2018, and we’re still baffled by the enormous storage and spec requirements. For example, you will need a whopping 155GB of storage just to fit the game on your system. Further, to play the game at 60 FPS, you will need a high-quality RTX card paired with 16GB RAM. If you’re looking to play this game at 4K, it calls for an impressive 3-series Nvidia RTX. Although you will spend a lot getting the best graphics for this game, the landscape makes it worthwhile.
Red Dead Redemption 2
Developed by Rockstar, Red Dead Redemption 2 is a GTA-style game set in the Wild West. Set within an enormous open world map, you will need 150GB of storage, an Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB GPU, and an Intel Core -7 or AMD Ryzen 5 1500 to get the most out of this game.
Computers are capable of playing games just as well as consoles, if not better in some cases. However, to get the best graphics, you need to pack some serious hardware into your machine.
