Perhaps in 2003 when the original came out. Screens are meant to show what they can show.

Without being too flippant, Crysis was used as it's a bit of a joke that the CryEngine in which the game Crysis 1, 2, 3 etc. is based was initially a joke as a massive hog on system resources and also a new graphical standard. It may not be so any longer but it's a bit of a catchphrase "can it run crysis"? Many Raspberry PIs and Beagle Boards have tried and died.
