You played these games "maxed out"? The guy specifically said "As for FFXV, if my 4770K cannot run a 2016 game maxed out w/o even trying too hard, I will delete my account leave the world and go take Monastic Vows"
I know FFXV and Shadow of the Tomb Raider can run on even PS4 and XBox One, but those are with the setting turned way down from "maxed out"
Not maxed out, but not "turned way down" either - for me that would be everything on high at most, or worse. In most games I use custom settings with everything maxed out but shadows and AA tuned down a level or two, and disabling subsurface scattering when that's available. I remember this being the case for FFXV and SOTR. (these are the settings I often still use now with an i7 10700k + RTX 2060 Super)
And on Tomb Raider, since everyone is giving opinions... my favorites are the 7th gen trilogy (Legend + Anniversary + Underworld). The new ones are okay.
