These animated GIFs show how close to reality video-games have actually come

TIME has shared some really interesting animated GIFs, showcasing some of Ubisoft’s titles. Now while we all agree that Ubisoft’s games are plagued by the very same “issues/features“, thus making them a bit repetitive and predictable, we can all agree that they at least look beautiful.

Of course we always prefer gameplay over graphics, however these GIFs show how close to reality Ubisoft’s games have actually come.

Below you can find some comparisons between the real world locations and four video-games from Ubisoft: The Division, Watch_Dogs, Far Cry and Ghost Recon: Wildlands.

John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the "The Evolution of PC graphics cards." Contact: Email
