We’re on the verge of games that will be discernable from real-life images, and with the development of more and more powerful graphics cards, next-gen consoles and DirectX 12 that time is quickly approaching.

While the game is a bit more stylized than real life, it is incredible the amount of fidelity the game has managed to pump out while running.
