Real or Video Game: Can You Tell the Difference?

Deutsch English

Video game graphics are so beautiful today that we often have to use a magnifying glass to find the difference from video games and the real world. So now there is a mysterious photo shared by the Chernobylite makers!

What happened? Via Twitter, the developer The Farm 51, who is behind the horror shooter Chernobylite, shared a picture under which they asked fans if they believed it was a photo or a screenshot. The trigger for this is of course the game’s beautiful graphics. But would you tell the difference between video game and reality straight away?

Real World or Video Game? Not that easy

How you can tell: These days it’s getting harder and harder to tell the difference between a game and the real world. Of course, you notice it faster with moving images than with a photo, hence “photo-realistic”.

In the case of Chernobylite, the community answered the whole thing correctly, but they still had to look for the clues with the proverbial magnifying glass. So that you can do that too, we have uploaded the image of the developer here uncompressed!

As the community correctly stated: The picture comes from the game Chernobylite and is not a real photo. But how did they noticed?

  • The foliage of the trees is angular and 2-dimensional.
  • Part of the tall building has artifacts on the right edge. If you look closely, you will see that the texture appears smeared.
And that’s basically it. Even in our time, vegetation in video games is still a difficult aspect of optics to implement. If you had been a little more careful when applying the texture of the house and if the trees weren’t so prominent, at least we wouldn’t have recognized it!
But how about you, did you immediately recognize that the picture is a screenshot from Chernobylite? Let us know in the comments!
