I watched the credits roll this afternoon... but the game didn't end. I'm glad I didn't just turn it off, which was a temptation given how freaking long the credits scenes drag on.

Yeah I talked about the end credits in a spoiler tag a while ago. But hands down the LOONGGESST end credit scene ever. It could have been cut in half and it would still be the longest end credit scene ever.

I was seriously considering this as my next purchase but apparently my video card (NVIDIA 970) isn't powerful enough. I mean, I know it's older, but I was kinda surprised. Might be time to risk a card upgrade during the pandemic. If not for this, then most likely for Cyberpunk 2077

A quick search on the Steam forum reveals some people reporting 30+ FPS with a 970, for what it's worth.

Oh yeah? I wasn't expecting it to look like a 4K production, but I figured the game wouldn't even let me load without meeting minimum video card (4GB memory?) requirements. I'll take another look, but still likely wait a week or two for patches and fixes. From what I've read it's a little wonky and requires latest graphic drivers update. I'll let things settle out a bit and keep watching. Thanks.

In fact this guy looks like he's even hitting 60fps in places. I guess a lot depends on the rest of your hardware. But remember Steam has a decent refund policy so it won't hurt you to try.

Even more interesting. I'm running an i-7 6700 @ 3.4 GHz w/ 16 GB of RAM on Win10 64. I know my 970 is the bottleneck, but I didn't think it would be a problem here. Definitely encouraging.

The STEAM refund policy is definitely the reason I'd even consider it now, for sure.

Smoove, that's exactly my hardware and for a video card I have a 970 GTX. I admit I didn't even check the minimum requirements and if you hadn't said that it wasn't supposed to run on a 970 I would not have known as it seems to run perfectly fine
