The future of video games sure looks slick

Video game graphics are already pretty impressive, but you can't stop progress. The next step on our inevitable march towards completely photorealistic games looks to be the CryEngine 3. Just look at this footage!

The trailer for the engine, created by Crytek, the studio behind Crysis, looks pretty stunning. Look at how shiny everything is! Granted, this stuff will take a pretty beefy rig to run looking like that, but don't worry. By the time the Xbox 720 and Playstation 4 come around, they'll be able to pump stuff like this out at 60 frames per second without breaking a sweat. Get excited.
