    I might have to pick up some GTX 1080's soon. Isn't it beautiful?

    It looks good, but I've never focused too much on graphics when it comes to video games. In fact, one of my favourite games, The Legend of Dragoon, has some of the worst graphics I've ever seen (for the time period); the graphics can be described as "polygon".

    My lenovo I7 is top notch (although being almost two years old already) but they saved on the graphics-card - a shame XCom 2 isn't running properly on this one, runs everything else I got without problems... :/

    I have to agree, graphics isn't everything... but a lot of games nowadays rely heavily on gfx and therefor you need to upgrade just to be able to play them - I'd love to play xcom2 with lower graphics but sadly not possible...

    The games which have the worst quality, remind me of the good old times :D

    That game was FOUR discs long, and those 4 discs took you on one hell of an adventure!

    Unfortunately though, they only made one Legend of Dragoon. :(

    Agreed! The combos were ahead of their time!

    Consider building or half building one. Save so much and feels so good.

    one of the best games I ever played so much depth and extra side quests even extra characters even the battle system was novel including the combos

    also try koudelka for the ps1 and vagrant story
