    No game is short to me when doing all the side quests and searching every nook and cranny for goodies. Anyway like most games today, if you only do the main missions, the game will seem short. With that, Steam has me logged for 84 hours. YMMV.
    If that's what you like, you would love Sniper Ghost warrior 3.

    I'll let the AB/Riva Tuner experts comment. You would probably get everything you need from that. Assume you have seen dude and worf's videos.

    Not into those type games. I'm more of a science fiction person with a good dose of puzzles and other options rather than straight shoot em up games. That's me.

    @ Specialkone. To be honest, I didn't think Prey was that long. I just did all the side quests and stuff looking to get the most out of the game. If I just did the main missions without all the get & fetch stuff, I doubt I'd get 84 hours. It's still a good game and I didn't feel cheated paying full price. In fact I bought it day 1 release.

    Blackrose; let me touch the GTA V in you. I have to say the graphics in GRW driving and flying around the beautiful countryside of Bolivia is spectacular.

    Thanks to Worf's videos I decided to buy Ghost Recon Wildlands to check out those graphics and see how this "poor old" EVGA FTW 1080 would perform at 1080P.

    So here's the GFE recommended settings, HBAO+, AF 16x, Temporal AA, Draw distance very high, God Rays enhanced and most of the rest being ultra everything per below.

    If you guys (Blackrose, essenbe) want to push those latest GPU's and see them perform you might want to check this game out. Graphics are amazing including those "turf effects" on the foliage. Look at this pic. I'm only at 1080P and barely holding 60+ FPS. Runs very smooth though.

    Blackrose - IMHO graphics are even better than WD2. Sadly, being a Uplay game, seems my XOC OSD isn't working. FPS are coming from Uplay.

    Worf - this game cost me $80 CDN. Keep those videos coming with Wildlands and Black Ops 3. If you start showing new/different games I may go broke.
    $80 is that the average cost of a big title game where you are? In the UK its around 30 to 40 lucky I got wildlands for free. Not sure what game to do after black ops 3. Portal 2 ?

    I think 40 pounds is about $69 CDN. That is typically the cost of a recent big title game. GRW is higher than that at some $10 more. Don't see that (thankfully) often. Must be the cost of all the cooperation with Nvidia to show gamers that to get all the "beauty" you need a GTX 1080 for 1080P Ultra and GTX 1080TI for 1440p Ultra. Note in my pics I'm hitting minimum 60 FPS with full eye candy at 1080P as you were at 1440p with the 1080TI. GRW is tougher than any benchmark.

    Likely more tough Nvidia "game features" coming to try and get more of their fan base onto Pascal.

    Oh yeah, I've been eyeing that game for a while now. It'll likely end up in my library soon. Looks gorgeous.

    Gorgeous indeed. I already had to be revived by my buddies once because I was looking around at graphic detail like this instead of focusing on the bad guys.
