    Decided to resurrect a thread from WAY back - I post a screenshot from a PC game, and the first person to correctly identify it gets to post the next screenshot (or alternatively tag me, and I'll provide another).

    To start us off:

    This game looks too old for tsr, don't think anyone here has played it. Maybe more recent games?

    Apart from me. :shakecane: There were a lot of us retro gamers back in the old thread, but fair point, I should have taken a hint from the fact that the recent 'classic old games' thread is full of Wii titles. :p:

    More recent is difficult for me, but let's give this a go (and the first one's still open for identifying, if anyone wants meaningless bonus points :king1: )

    Admittedly I cheated so won't say, but that does not look 2010/11, either that or graphics used to be *****er than I remember

    I believe it had a few development issues and was released later than planned, but it's still a great game. :yes: Though since most of what I play is far older, graphics have never really bothered me. :p:

    Correct! Feel free to post the next screenshot, or let me know if you'd rather I do so.

    Real answer: World of Warcraft. Helps that it's displayed at the top of the window, but I'd have gotten it anyway. :p:

    You've saved everyone from having to put up with another ancient game screenshot from me. :p:

    Not my genre, this one. Medal of Honor? :holmes: The original 1999 one, if the franchise isn't specific enough (I have a feeling the graphics are better than that, but this is only a stab in the dark anyway).

    Right genre, wrong franchise, and very far out on the year about a decade so, for reference, this is a screenshot from MoH Allied Assault (2002):



    Note how the people are made out of pay doh

    They do look a bit derpy. :p: I couldn't tell what was bad graphics and what was jpeg artifacts from the other screenshot, but the uniforms are certainly more detailed.

    I'll let someone else get this one. :getmecoat:

    I haven't played it for years so memory isn't perfect, but I think it is mostly just the graphics being far from great (although not awful for the time), I might try a get a better screenshot later, get some 4k action going on rather than like a quarter of a ~1k screenshot:

    I'm seeing 'Attachment not found' on the latest screenshot (presuming that's what it's supposed to be?) :s:

    I'll upload it on imgur or something later and try again that way, but it is mostly the game rather than being a jpg

    Nope, still the wrong franchise, although the year error has been cut by two thirds
