Oblivion; I cranked the graphics to full at 1280x1024 and wondered at the graphics; one of the first games to have "wet" looking lightings.......

It ran at about 10 fps, but damn if it didn't slap.

I had to run Oblivion with Oldblivion injector because my GPU at the time didn't support DirectX 9. It worked fine then though.

I used to do that just to see what it looked like at high resolution in Quake and Jedi Knight. You couldn't play it like that, but it looked amazing.

What does wet looking lighting mean?

I've forgotten the technical term, but it was the first generation era of the lighting/texture technique that sort of faked reflective/shiny lighting off of textures. Very noticeable in dungeons back then, and looked great.

Games like Gears of War almost over did the same technique.
