Sure, games are slowly moving toward 4k resolutions, but what if you skipped that and went straight to almost 8 times larger than highest resolutions consoles can run right now? The result is incredible.

Redditor K-putt decided to push his PC to the limit and get these shots of Crysis 3 at up to 8k resolution, with custom settings to make it look even better than the default ultra high graphics settings. He played through the game and switched resolutions when coming across a particularly pretty scene. Why switch resolutions? Because the game runs at around 2 frames per second when the resolution is set so high.

K-putt explained how to do it in case you'd like to try it for yourself:

I used Maldo's On The Fly tool to get access to some blocked cvar's [engine commands like draw distance] of the game. I also used his ultra preset for those screenshots.

Then i added some custom exec's [command-line settings] for those high resolutions. Which i could then change via keybindings.
So i line-up a shot, change to 8K for example, take a screenshot and go back to 1080p.
SweetFX was used as well to adjust some colors/blacklevel etc. And i used a cheat-engine hack to get some sort of a free camera (changing the x,y,z player coordinates)

I have a question for the pc master race.......

Does really great graphics affect game play that much?

I'm currently playing on a 360 and I personally love the graphics. I haven't seen the graphics on the ps4/one I'm assuming they are better and pc even better than that.

It seems to me that the game developers are focusing on the wrong thing, spending too much time on graphics and not enough on game play /story /debugging. I hear a lot of complaints about broken games at release and things that should have been included, that later shows up as an update.

Let me know what you think.
