Wo long was an epic disappointment, considering it's from the same developers of Nioh and a more recent game. Ride 5 is being a very pleasant surprise. MotoGP 24 and Isle of Man are total crap compared to it. Maybe I'll try Forza Motorsport. Haven't done so yet because of the mixed reviews.

Uninstalled Sekiro as you can see. Overhyped crap. Not because it's hard, but unbalanced. Unpolished. Back 4 blood is pretty average, but i will see whether it will be possible to finish it. Best games on the current ones are clearly Dark Souls III, Nioh, Ride 5 and Witcher 3.

Worst games on the completed ones were A Plague Tale - Requiem, Dead Rising 4, and Devil May Cry 5. Avoid if you can. Best games on the uncompleted are obviously Baldurs Gate 3, Elden Ring, Forza Horizon 4... That's it fellows. Now, i will tell you which games are more taxing.

For a 5600G + RX 6600 combo (PCIe 3.0), NVME on a 144hz (165hz overdrive) monitor at 1080p, ultra or max settings, driver on quality preset. Remember that drivers can have a significant impact on this.

If a game is not mentioned, just assume it's playable at max settings (with or without, mostly without, raytracing and no upscaling. 1% lows consistently above 50 FPS, with the average comfortably above 60.

Upscaling (FSR or XESS quality, or balanced) was only used on The Witcher 3, Plague Tale - Requiem, Alan Wake 2, Cyberpunk 2077, RoboCop Rogue City, Dying Light 2 and Remnant 2. No fluid motions, or FSR 3 Mod.

Current games:

The Witcher 3 (next gen, 4.04), playable at ultra ou ultra+, FSR quality


A Plague Tale - Requiem, medium settings, ultra on VRAM stuff like textures and stuff, balanced upscaling, comfortably around 100 fps.

Alan Wake 2, i actually don't remember much, but it was medium, high, with the January drivers which were terrible for that specific game (10 fps loss), around 60 fps. FSR balanced or high, not sure.

Cyberpunk 2077, ultra, raytracing soft shadows, FSR quality, comfortably above 60 fps, nowadays drivers would hit above 70.

Ghost of Tsushima, was taxing, but was able to keep everything on high, very high, two or three settings on medium, 70 fps average.

Marvel's Guardian of the Galaxy, with raytracing on medium, 50 to 60 fps average, otherwise would do 90 on ultra.

Metro Exodus, because of mandatory raytracing, but comfortably above 69 fps on ultra, raytracing medium.

Ratchet and Clank - Rift Apart, medium settings, high on vram stuff. Poor PC port. Comfortably around 90 fps for the most part.

RoboCop Rogue City, unreal engine 5, everything on max, XESS on balanced, 60 fps average. FSR is broken on this game.

The Last of Us Part 1, mostly everything on high or ultra, 50 to 60 fps average. Use FSR3 antialiasing whenever possible, not to be mistaken with upscaling. Ghost of Tsushima for example has it as well, far superior to TAA.

Use 125% resolution scale for borderlands at 1080p, no volumetric fog. Always check articles, reddit, YouTube for tips, or test each setting by yourself.

Uncompleted games:

Deathloop, Dying Light 2, Horizon Forbidden West, Lords of the Fallen, Remnant 2, Star Wars Fallen Order (1% lows).

Too tired to go into detail, but yeah, the RX 6600 is a beast for 1080p.
