    so if they end up doing ray tracing for the Original Crysis and Crysis 2, i would upgrade to an RTX card in a heart beat.

    Hopefully Ampere puts an end to $1200 graphics cards.

    So you think that putting more work and re-releasing a game with costs associated with it and content that is brand new for money is messed up?

    That's pretty sad.

    I would like the old games to be remastered with updated engine and gfx instead of just ray tracing being added. If the end result is like Quake 2 then i would call this pretty bad performance for not much gain in overall gfx quality. It's crazy the price of the machine you need to run Quake 2 RTX with an acceptable fps. I would not call what they want to do remaster but more like what they did to the old Star Wars movies.

    Its funny.. I wonder what the age group is in this forum? It isn't just nostalgia , those were great imaginative games.. There are very few games today that have any character or hold your attention more that 5 hrs. They used to tack on multiplayer onto the single player content. They they figured they could make it easier to neuter the single player experience and get lazy and just go for multiplayer.. He I know what we need.. Another cut and paste COD or Battlefield. There is nothing new anymore.. EA,Ubisoft ect.. will just shut them down.. What happened to bioware,westwood studios, Hell, all the studios that made great games? The graphics in todays games are better, but the gameplay sucks!

    to remaster old games or just stick Ray tracing in them and leave the rest of the game alone?

    Deus Ex remaster would be pretty sweet, but if all there gonna do is add ray tracing to games I will just stick to original games and there mods. Deus Ex hold up great if you use the revision mod which most textures to HD quality give OpenGL and I think DX 11 support

    In your Control video the only time a 2060 wtih RTX hit 60fps is when you were standing still in less intensive areas with no action on the screen. From 16:50 - 17:10 you're only getting 30fps. Same in your Metro video. No action on the screen and most of the time the sky was the main thing on the screen.

    If you don't already own the game and they want to sell it to you for whatever amount, that's one thing. But I already own a large amount of old games, so I think I would be entitled to a free upgrade, especially since this is really about encouraging adoption of their latest and greatest graphics cards. I bought Quake II at full retail price when it came out. I'm not going to pay nVidia $5 because they tacked on some special effects so they could sell more cards.

    So we should care about Ray Tracing in them oldies just so that Nvidia can sell more of their crappy cards?

    There are many great games from past that had much better game mechanics than new games. All they need is visual overhaul worthy 2020.

    Maybe in three or four generations from now the graphics department might be up to snuff with a card performing well at the $500 price point. That and the inclusion of rtx type support of some sort as well.

    Just bought me a 5700xt red devil for less than $420!!! WTF would I spend over EIGHT HUNDRED MORE to get ray tracing and 25+ more fps?!?!?!?!
