    Yeah, I think that's the point, the original game is so non-taxing to run (as well as being share ware), that in order to have 'everything' done through ray tracing meant using an old game with virtually no existing rendering overhead, which enables pretty much all of the frametime to be dedicated to ray tracing processing. This gen of ray tracing hardware isn't powerful enough to do 'full raytracing' on a significantly more complex game, and I guess the shareware nature of the game meant no legal issues with adding ray tracing to it, plus it's an iconic game so a good choice for NVidia from that point of view.

    Play some star citizen with its vortex rendering and you will wonder what the hype is all about.

    Masterpiece for its time, sure. Hold up to todays games...? What are you, an opinion nazi that thinks everyones opinions must conform to their own? How about visiting the games section and checking out how diverse opinions are across the board on nearly every title. Sad to see the forums beset with intolerant newly arrived internet neanderthals that cant figure out diversity of opinions are about as natural and common as can be.

    I mean even ea stopped ruining the moh franchise so just RT looks on the same game
    all I want is modern looks not the bs modern games they put out now.
    if it was not for hacks it would be more fun for me to play online nobody can really run amok with anything over powered.
    day one till last day everything is the same no upgrades no k/d ratios no regen just health packs maybe a sight no forced skins.you have to be good or a camper to stay around in a match
    just saying
