Are there any games that are Nvidia only?

I guess the question is explained in the title.

the closest you'll get are PhysX titles.

Hm, ok. I recently got a R9 290, so I may have problems with PhysX intensive games?

Not that I'm aware of... Would be needlessly silly. AC4 just got a physx patch though (mostly just smoke effects) ... woot!

No you won't... you will just either not be able to use physx at all or delegate the work to your cpu which isn't anywhere near as efficient but can still provide positive results.

Ah good, so no actual games REQUIRE PhysX. I think I can live without PhysX enhanced smoke effects :P

But trust me games that utilize physX are terrible without it. Compare Borderlands 2 with and without and you've got a completely different game.

Considering I hated B2 on console just because it was so darn grindy, maybe changing it into a completely different game wouldn't be a bad thing lol

Wow. I like Physx but that's such hyperbole it should be against the ToS. Physx adds some pretty nice particle/smoke/fluid effects but that's all. Just another effect. Gameplay is not changed in any of the mainstream titles.

"gameplay is not changed..." I spent at least half ym time shooting walls, floors, and cloths only to throw grenades at them and watch the physX in motion.
