RTX Games

Control

If you haven't seen Remedy Entertainment's tour de force of real-time ray tracing effects with Control, then you really need to check it out. NVIDIA has the perfect all-encompassing powerhouse game to show off the abilities of real-time ray tracing technology and RTX gaming in a single game with Control.

Control with all of the RTX bells and whistles looks absolutely incredible, and is one of -- if not the best-looking game ever. You'll need a GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER or GeForce RTX 2080 Ti to run it at 4K and anywhere near 60FPS with all of the real-time ray tracing effects turned on, but I promise it is oh-so-worth it.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare truly looks great with RTX turned on, and doesn't require a crazy high-end card to enjoy the suped-up graphics. There are some parts of the game that just stand out so much with RTX that it's hard to explain, but the real-time ray tracing technology used for ray-traced shadows looks out of this world.

And that's just for the single-player part of the game, the crazy action in the multiplayer side of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is also hella fun. Bundle it with a new high refresh monitor and GeForce RTX SUPER graphics card and you won't pull yourself away from your PC when it comes to multiplayer gaming.

Metro Exodus

One of the first 'OMG wow' moments of RTX was definitely the much realer world of Metro Exodus, with developer 4A Games putting it all into the PC version of the game and its real-time ray tracing technology.

Metro Exodus was the first real big AAA game to trial out Global Illumination and it really shows, it has some of the best graphics you can get on the PC (probably only apart from Remedy's incredible Control). The ray tracing side of Metro Exodus gives the game a very visible (and gorgeous) oomph... the RTX oomph? Did I just make that up? #RTXoomph

Quake RTX

Seriously, Quake, Quake II, and Quake III are some of my most-played games ever. I remember the day of Quake II launching and being able to see all that colored lighting and thinking 'wow, this is the future'. The future is now here and I was right, but now ray tracing is here -- and also making the same incredible changes in Quake II with RTX.

NVIDIA has just released a new v1.2 update to Quake II RTX that adds even more realism to the ray tracing effects, with more realistic looking water, and God Rays that have more reflections and refractions. Textures have been updated to look better, and glass now looks much more realistic. Awesome.

Minecraft RTX

Minecraft is already one of the biggest games of all time, but with beautiful real-time ray tracing it looks even better. The new RTX-powered version of Minecraft has gorgeous realistic lighting and super-vibrant colors, as well as much more realistic looking water and higher detail textures that make the world of Minecraft really pop on GeForce RTX hardware.
