The Power of Mods: A Look at Graphical Enhancement in Five PC Games

Want to know what games are going to look like in the coming years? You don’t have to speculate, the future is here.

For years, PC gaming has been ahead of the curve when it comes to graphics, both from an in-game perspective and with aftermarket mods. These mods push the games to their extreme, and even invent new render, texturing and lighting techniques that simply don’t exist on the market yet.

I decided to hunt down five games that have some of the best graphical mods around. Most of the pictures below will blow up, though some bigger than others.

Grand Theft Auto


Fallout 3


And the mother of them all, Crysis
