The contest is over, and I have declared the winners. I had to exercise a little discretion. I have messaged the winners over YouTube. The winners are:

LOTRO - JackDRay
This is what Eyefinity and DX11 are made for. Standing at a cliff in Rivendell and looking at the waterfall, you can almost feel like you are there with the fellowship.


Borderlads - bf2addict
@Gimpylung you can use the binding key workaround to reset FOV when driving but it can cause stuttering; so still no optimum solution for vehicle FOV. I have the binding key workaround to reset FOV in my strafe and sprint keys so once I exit my vehicle I pretty much instantly reset my FOV.


Deus Ex (Two Winners!!!) - HertzSine
It would appear we are finally getting some updated visuals in PC games; for too long Crysis has been the best overall showcase and while I am not claiming this game will beat Crysis, it is a step towards a game eventually doing so definitively.

I have yet to play any of the Deus Ex games; I prefer to play an entire franchise in order, no matter how many overly critical fans might complain about the 2nd one...Thumbs up and I might get my chance!

Even though it looks like the PC version could suffer a little from being a console port (level size, specifically), it seems like Eidos is putting in some extra effort with DX11, tougher AI, PC UI, and Eyefinity support out of the box. I'm glad ATI is sponsoring the game with their Gaming Evolved program: which is probably why the PC version is getting special treatment.

Though if the PC version turned out to be terrible, I don't think many people would forgive Eidos for such a transgression.

I honestly didn't expect to win the Deus Ex competition. There were so many other comments, and my understanding was that only rated comments would win. So imagine my surprise when I was told I'd won. Sweet! Thanks for the New Year's gift. :D
