    Well! For those of us who remember playing pong, Manic Miner and thought the Amiga's Shadow of the Beast graphics were amazing on arrival. That was simply stunning.
    I really enjoy playing Tomb Raider type adventure games (I am crap at FPS) on the pc and sometimes find myself stopping at the top of some peak and looking around in amazement at the scenery of the game. All that effort the programmers put in, most people just run on by and never notice.
    Looking forward to when UE5 games hit the shops.

    Yeah - some of the Amiga games were truly jaw dropping back in their day.

    I think it was Defender of the Crown, Deluxe Paint and proper multi-window multi-tasking that were the real "system sellers" for me. A real vision of what the future of computing could be and a quantum leap ahead of PCs of the day - and the early Macs were primitive beasts too.

    I worked part time at a Waitrose store all the hours I could, whilst taking my A levels, to save up for an Amiga after seeing the A1000 in person. Ended up with an A500 just after they launched in the UK. Glory days!

    The Unreal Engine is also like a marker for an era, always seeming to have remained at the sharp end of what is possible in terms of graphics and creating amazing environments to play in (big UT fan for over 20 years - such awesome maps & fluid gameplay).

    That demo looks like a fantastic re-imagining of what the next chapter of Tomb Raider should bring to the table. The lighting and geometric detail in the scenery is absolutely amazing.

    Interesting they chose to demo this on the PS5, widely anticipated to be the weakest next gen console in terms of CPU/GPU grunt. Could be Epic's way of saying "this is how amazing the lowest common denominator can look" - great news for that other console due to launch this winter - and even better news for those with a really beefy gaming PC.

    Re: Epic shows off Unreal Engine 5 running on a PlayStation 5

    I cant remember most of the Amiga titles, but Gunship 2000 i logged in a good deal of hours on.

    will be interesting to see how this would run on different PC parts.
    PS: I did try UT for a short while, but while i did not dislike it i quickly moved on to other stuff.

    But yeah this graphics are indeed Unreal.

    Makes me wonder, whether I will be better served at this rate by a console!
