    Mass Effect Andromeda Recommended Specs Unreasonably High

    Mass Effect Andromeda is one of the most anticipated 2017 games, especially for fans of the franchise. Electronic Arts recently released the recommended specifications for the game:
    • OS: 64-bit Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10
    • PROCESSOR: Intel Core i7-4790 or AMD FX-8350
    • MEMORY: 16 GB RAM
    • VIDEO CARD: NVIDIA GTX 1060 3GB, AMD RX 480 4GB
    • HARD DRIVE: At least 55 GB of free space
    • DIRECTX: DirectX 11

    For those of you who don't immediately spot the problems, it's mainly the CPU. The i7-4790 is one of the highest end consumer processors on the market, and a good $100 beyond the price limit of most users. The RAM amount is also quite high, with most gamers having only 8GB. The GPU's are a little more modest, as they are popular choices for high to mid-range gaming. Unfortunately, that all went out the window when EA announced that the recommended specs were only for the High setting (usually two levels less than the maximum) on 1080p running at 30 frames per second. While 30fps is reasonable when using a TV, the difference between the standard 60fps is far more noticeable when you are less than two feet from the monitor.

    This will quite likely hurt sales of the PC version, as most people won't be able to run the game at the level of quality they have grown accustomed to.

    This is why I gave up PC gaming, the games don't work on my PC. Diablo 2 was the last PC game for me if you don't count minecraft.

    I bought Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider. The original looks better than the sequel because I gave to run it on much lower settings.
