All right, I'll cave. I didn't realize that there were so many games featuring lush jungle vegetation these days.

This photo is from the greatest game ever made (imo)- Crysis!

That's about as high-def as it comes, I was running it at almost slideshow-framerates just to take a nice picture. The small screenshot doesn't really do it justice.

HAHA, is that a wallpaper? If it is, I have the same exact one for my PSP.

I'm pretty sure you can download that picture as a prank, but I've seen that actually happen to someone's computer. It was unfortunate.

Operation Tumbler-Snapper, and there are a few things that make it interesting. First is the sheer awesomeness of capturing something that is happening something so quickly (done with a rapatronic camera). Second is how it shows the rope trick effect.
