The model looks abit streched and unnatural.

1080p is good enough for games IMHO. One of the noticable weaknesses of the "4K" resolution is how you would need to concentrated on the screen. Imagine having to play a BF3 hardcore and action-packed MP match utilizing a 85 inch OLED 4K monitor. The sharpness of the screen might even hurt some eyes (as do the 3D effect does) and the large screen could prove hard from the player to focus on certain impotant events, peoples and situations.

For me, 4K is nice for watching movies not for playing games.

I meant how it's pixelated and the texture seems stretched at some pointed but this is understandable. HL2 models never were too HD anyways, atleast the stock ones.

They actually updated the skins and shading a little recently. Noticed it by looking at a Combine Soldier.

the only thing that have been updated is added phong and rimlighting, besides that not really

and that was more than a couple of years ago
when they updated all hl2-based source games to the 2007 engine, one of the updates being "improved visuals".

so anyways, this image is to discuss 4K resolution

meh.. While it may seem fun to play games on larger 4k screen or hell, cinema size, but for me the current HD(720p or 1080p) is good enough. But on the other hand it can be useful for people watching a game tournament from a far.

After reading this Eurogamer.net article about PC gaming in 4K resolution, i decided to see for myself how big 4K resolution really is(or atleast 3072p), the nearest thing i could do was rendering a picture in 3072p, and rerender the same picture in both 720p and 1080p, then compare all.

the 3072p picture took quite a while to render, but the end was quite suprising for me looking at the comparison(also 48mb TGA file), if thats 3072 then 4K is definitely huge, but the question is: In what way is it useful? because 1080p is really high-definition enough to my eyes.
