The gaming industry has spent the last couple of years talking up the beauty of 4K, but forget that. 8K is the real deal, people.
The screenshots are courtesy of a Flickr gallery curated by user Xanvast, who has uploaded more than 7100 shots of games in glorious 8K resolution. I’ve resized the photos down from their original 8K resolution to 1080p for size considerations, but you can view the gallery in full here.
The photos are ridiculously pretty. Scrolling through the entire gallery just makes me want to update my desktop wallpaper. Or wallpapers, really. It’s basically an album of gamer porn.
Who knew Mad Max could look so good?
Remember Me was ordinary as all hell, but the game had some stunning environments. And that was at 1080p; Christ it looks good when you push the resolution further.
You can also view albums for individual games, including shots of Alien: Isolation, the Metro series and others at 4K and 5K, here. Enjoy updating those wallpapers!
