I re-played Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed a few months ago for the sake of nostalgia. The game still holds up very well, and even though it is quite old by today’s standards (2007), the graphics do not seem that dated at all. I’ve gotten into the habit of taking screenshots whenever I’m playing through PC games these days, because it serves as a diary of sorts, and looking at the screenshots often conjures up emotions I may have had at the time while playing through. Taking screenshots is very convenient when playing games through Steam, since it provides a one-button shortcut for doing so (usually F12).
Some of these screenshots can also serve as very nice desktop backgrounds, and since they are all high-res (1920*1080), the scenery shots are perfect for this purpose. My only gripe is that Steam saves these images as highly compressed JPEG files, and the compression can sometimes be evident (jagged edges, color gradients becoming less smooth, etc.). Steam should also include a utility for users to adjust the level of compression when saving screenshots.
