Here are Some of the Best Ultra-High-Definition In-Game PC Screenshots Captured in 2014
2014 has been a long and interesting year for pretty video games. The latest PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles that once looked so new now seem to dominate the eight generation of video games with a decent, if not huge, lineup of third as well as first-party video game titles. PC gaming, on the other hand, unlike many thought so, is only expanding its roots in the market, with video game developers now realizing the potential that it holds. With all the new technology and ultra-high-definition resolutions to toy with, PC gamers did some distinctive stuff by modding years old games and maxing out the new ones up to 4 and 8K resolutions.
To commemorate the pretty video games of 2014 and all those pixels, PCGamer put together a collection of images including the most graphically impressive and beautiful in-game PC screenshots captured in 2014.
