What do you consider to be the first "next-generation" game for the PC?

It's not like consoles, but there still seems to be jumps in technology that run fairly concurrently with new console releases.

What do you mean by "next-generation?" Like, comparable to PS4/Xbone? Or the first PC game that was ever considered or called "next-gen?" Or what?

I will say Witcher 3. Maybe even their game after that, Cyberpunk 2077. They know their crap.

Oh, or Star Citizen. That one looks fab.

Crysis, but more recently if you were talking about PS4-xbone games I think the first game to be released was Thief.

Technically Crysis.....looks about as good as the average next gen game....

You mean like the equivalent of a "next gen" console game? so like a PS4 XBone game?

I don't remember the last 720p 30 fps PC game.

Pointing out your stupidity is not trolling

There's no such thing, and you shouldn't try to draw a comparison.
