Also, DS2 is a game that looks beautifully without any anti-aliasing filter (Majula at the very least).
But even with anti-aliasing, everything looks pretty sharp everywhere on that town, so even just a standard sharp upscale looks amazing.
But Sekiro is pretty blurry, even as I had with lower setting, and no anti-aliasing.
Lots of stuff going around, instead of large surfaces with a complex texture.
But ultimately I’ll want to sharpen a bit specifically because of the speed.
The game moves really fast, and yes, it has motion blur (it was on medium setting there). But add that to 3x compression (recording, editing, youtubing)… and the somewhat subtle but quick movements just disappear.
That is also another reason why I am always testing the full fight. This fight specifically has a lot of that. On the non filtered versions of the SS you can’t see any detail of Genichiro’s character, while on the original version you can see a few, and on the sharpen version you can see too much.
So yeah, depending on the game and what you want out of it, spending that extra time working with a filter to sharpen an upscale is always worth it on the long run.
