    Bought myself a new shaitan machine, hi-end, as they say.

    Please recommend some very beautiful PC games which are also not completely dull for testing the boundaries of the beauty. If there are any.

    Tried already on ultras:

    Control (shit)
    Sekiro (not so hi-end actually)
    Plague Tale: Innocence (stupid voiceover)
    DOOM4 (cartoon)
    Agony (wtf is this)
    Hellblade (cool, but I know the ending( )

    Wanna try:

    Kingdom Come: Deliverance
    ECHO
    Fallen Order
    Death Stranding
    RDD2
    Witcher 3 (they said it still rocks visually)
    The Council
    Star Citizen (is it even released?)

    Initially I wanted to try Life Is Strange 2, Gears 4-5 and Assasin's Creed Whatever, but I'm afraid I will not be able to bear such stupidity.

    Ideas?

    It does look great.

    I would love to see some ultra-beautiful RPG, of course (and that is the reason why I'll finally try The Outer Worlds), but who am I kidding, right?

    Probably need to use this space machine for diving into Grimoire and get high on cognitive dissonance.

    Was still in school so that all kinda flew over my head.

    Being serious tho, Witcher 3, Metro Exodus and the two reboot Hitmans were the most demanding new games I've played from recent years. I've heard RE2 remake and KCD are potential graphicswhore games as well.

    Nope.
    The game also has a short video that recaps the story of all games if you're interested in that.

    The only reason to buy a high-end machine in my book is to play modern 4x games. Recent Warhammer and Total War releases look mighty fine. If they are half as good mechanics-wise, you shouldn't waste your time on shallow shite like Fallen Order, Hellblade, The Council, and most games movies you mentioned in OP.

    Even better, play DF and try to generate a big world with long history. I doubt your shaitan machine is that good, though.

    Kenshi is nice. It is very beautiful in a way, but maybe not in the terms of graphics.

    I like Wild West stuff, but RDR2 is one shitty game full of nothing.

    Take a look at Hunt Showdown.
    It's made on latest iterations of CryEngine, so naturally it is really demanding on your machin, and looks really good.



    Word of warning - it is a PvPvE multiplayer shooter.

    Then definitely take a look at Kingdome Come.
    It also runs on CryEngine.
    If your machine can handle good ENB and HD texture mods it will be even better.
    But it's not shit, so ...

    Witcher 3 still looks very well, thanks to great art direction.

    You could also try The Forest, OP.

    Pathologic 2 eats your pc, and looks pretty good.

    Its also a fucking masterpiece.

    Was it released finally? It was forever early access iirc.

    I know, I'm playing it! However, the production feels rushed: NPC models even on ultras are not as good as the textures which feels weird. But weirdness is the core of the game, so its okay.
