Whats happening with Crytek is a perfect example of what happens...

Can you please explain to me what was remotely good about the original Crysis? I mean other than being a tech demo showing off the power of the PC. I want to know what made it a half way decent GAME.


Basically I love it for many reasons. It works with the Xbox 360 controller automatically is one reason. Of course the graphics are a huge part because it actually put you in the setting. The beginning area is just such a cool world to explore and play like you want to play. you don't even have to fire a single bullet if that's what pleases you. many different ways to approach a mission and side tasks as well that rewards exploration. you can interact with almost every item in the game which makes for some funny kills with objects. The suit was amazing and actually a useful concept not the watered down crap in the other games. also the modder community was very active and i found myself playing hundreds of hours of user made missions/games. all in all i probably have over 500 hours in the game.

Remember mods or not this game was released in 2007. I only dream of what Crysis 3 could have been if Crytek stayed true to PC.

All we pc gamers care about is graphics.....
GRAPHICS HURR DURR THE GRAPHIX... YOU SEE DEEZ GRAPHIX? OH YEAH YOU SEE DEEZ GRAPHIX HAHAH GRAPHICS!


Crytek produces tech demos...But piss poor excuses for "Games".

Far Cry is one of the best games ever. Crysis was pretty crappy in comparison and it has been downhill from there.

I don't know wtf is wrong with people who say that Crysis was just a tech demo. It was incredibly fun and a great game. It definitely ranks in my top 5-10 favorite FPS games of all time. The maps were massive, the physics really added to the gameplay, there were numerous ways to approach a level, and the power suit and weapon alterations really added to the gameplay.

Have you even played it? Probably not since you're a console gamer. It was a great game. It didn't just have graphics, it had physics and new gameplay concepts.


I played it. I thought it sucked. As a matter of fact, I don't think there's been a game that I've tried to play more that I just plain out did not like.

I'm not a big FPS guy, but I enjoyed Crysis somewhat. To me it felt a little dated though. Maybe I'm a little too spoiled because of Far Cry 3 which was amazing all around. Crysis' gunplay wasn't as satisfying. I also completely lost interest around halfway through the game, when the aliens showed up. That's where I stopped.

However I will say Crysis' gameplay has aged very well. I did say it feels dated, but compared to other shooters from its time, the controls are very tight and next-gen-like.

While abandoning your core fan-base is rarely advisable, I am pretty sure Crytek went under because all of its recent releases were commercial flops, mostly due to the games being lackluster.

FC3 was released in 2012. Crysis in 2008.
TC is right, in 2008 it was one of the better FPS out there.

Trolling? Better get the facts right or get owned.

Sucks for people who lost jobs but Crysis series were very average at best. Nice graphics though.

The people dissing Crysis 1 are the poor, bitter ones whose PC broke down trying to run Crysis when it first came out, and who STILL don't have a PC capable of running it.

How PATHETIC
