No idea if anyone will be into this, but I'm a pretty avid gamer and I'm super into seeing if I can get a pretty screenshot when there's a good moment for it. Thought it might be nice to have a space for the other gamers here to share some good ones. :)

Here are a few of my favourites from Elite Dangerous (click to view in all their full sized glory):

    Been taking a b-e-a-utiful Saab out for a spin in a favourite game simulator of mine, but this one ain't on four wheels...

    They look spectacular! What game is that, @Aidan? Love a good flight sim.

    It's DCS Mike, it's a free game that comes with a couple of free planes but the DLCs are ridiculously expensive so always wait til a sale and use paypal if your bank charges for transactions in dollars or euros

    Nice pictures everyone! You will see some pictures from me on Wednesday as I am going to a video game place and doing virtual reality as well as the video games. So excited.

    I look forward to the screenshots Kasa! I haven't played a VR game before :)

    @Laine eurotruck simulator can actually be really beautiful sometimes!

    Feel free to compare the video game graphics I use to take nice screenshots, and use to play with a decent frame rate :lol:

    Ugh the aliasing

    Loving these so much. Euro Truck Sim is a surprisingly pretty game - definitely qualifies as good screenshot material @Laine!

    More awesome ones from you too @Aidan. I should probably get into a game like that when I run out of steam for Elite Dangerous. It looks gorgeous.

    Also the FPS vs quality issue is SUCH a struggle. I tend to lean towards FPS just because the smoothness is delightful, but you do pay the price. :tongue: 

    Intrigued to see those too @Kasa2013!

    Truth.


    Some more nice Viggen pics, beautiful Swedish jet



    Spoiler: violence..?

    Poor helicopter but who wants to waste missiles in this economy?

    My photos are not exactly screenshots but they are of virtual reality. I have one game photo and some virtual reality photos with my face mostly covered so nobody recognises me too easily. The game is called Vacation Simulator. It is a simple one as I am still a beginner and my parents don't like me playing violent stuff or stuff with lots of swearing. 

    (and no I was not about to throw that controller.  It was me trying to open some sort of gate or something like that.) Please excuse my awful fashion sense. At least the photos of other games being advertised looks better and links more to the discussion.)

    @Kasa2103 never played vacation simulator (dont have VR) but I've seen some funny Irish youtuber play it and it looked a laugh :joy:

    I think it's by the people who did job simulator? I'd rather vacation any day :tongue:

    I can't blame you for wanting to vacation all the time. I would if I could.

    Not the same kind of realistic visuals but this game Eastshade is one of the most beautiful I've ever played. The game is all about walking around painting portraits of different things so the art style is set up so everything looks like a painting.

    I'm not really one for flying games, but I do love a bit of bus simulatior or some virtual reality especially job simulatior, 

    My normal go to game at the moment is the old forza, so I'm currently playing forza horizon 2 and then some of forza horizon 3, both love playing them and I'm a amazing driver just not so much on super cars 😂😂
    Love is love and everyone is accepting and can share their issues with no judge from me and I try to help

    That game looks gorgeous @Riley! I might have to look into that. Aesthetics are a huge draw to a games for me.

    Also, there are some seriously amusing simulators out there - I have to say I didn't realise Job Simulator and Vacation Simulator existed. I've seen people play Surgeon Simulator and stuff before though, and they look like a laugh. I do occasionally play some Euro Truck when I need to relax, so I can totally see the appeal of bus simulators. :tongue: Love a good driving game too @davcr0ck!
     
    Is that from Universe Sandbox @Aidan?    

    Also, how did you find the VR experience @Kasa2103?

    Not good looking by today's standards at all, but there's something special about the retro look of early 00's PC games...



    Now compare this with the helicopter in my last screenshot, graphics have come a long way!
