Goes almost without saying that Epic develops great game engines; however, IMHO, Crytek's cryengine at GDC was more impressive and has done a better job of rendering outdoor environments and foliage better than the Epic's Unreal engine; Unreal still has top spot in market share but I think Crytek will make significant gains in the next couple of years;

That said, Tim Sweeney is still a hero.

This has been true for over 5 years (far cry came out in 2004...). And yet, CryEngine has basically only been used in other Crytek titles. If destructible trees couldn't sell game engines, theres little new hotness in CryEngine 3 that will. I bet in another 5 years, we will be saying pretty much the same thing.
