For a game to be ranked higher in the rankings it should have low average frame-rate. Each and every game were run at 4K(3840*2160) with all the settings maximized. The point of pushing these games to their limit is to check the speed of your PC. Third party mode and multiplayer mode is avoided during testing of the game and each game was given 5 minutes as a game playtime. This experiment confirms which game is the best.
