Special: Faked game screenshots [Top article of January 2009]
Faked screenshots of games are common on the internet. PC Games Hardware gathered the most (in)famous pictures.
2009 is coming to an end and PC Games Hardware takes a look at the past year. What caught the attention of our users and the people on the web? To answer this question we checked our statistics and searched for the most popular articles of the year. Today we want to reveal the top article of January 2009.
Our collection of faked game screenshots is rather diversified. We gathered real screenshot scandals, where game publishers had released pictures which had been meddle with and that showed graphics never possible in the final game. Also on board: Faked screenshots made by users that have been distributed via the internet. Furthermore we have screenshots that aren't faked actually but never occurred in the games when those were released. Some examples of games in our gallery: C&C Renegade, Tiberian Sun, Duke Nukem Forever, Call of Duty 4, DirectX 11, Far Cry 2, Half-Life 3, Flight Sim X, Age of Conan, Unreal 2, Unreal Tournament 3, Diablo 3 and Windows 7.
In the preview gallery you can fast forward the pictures. If you place your cursor over the picture, you can read the subtitle.
You miss a certain screenshot fake or game? Then tell us in the comments. We also plan to assemble a similar article for hardware fakes.
