Best looking pc games?

#1thefabregas22Posted 8/19/2013 4:31:42 PM
I've been wanting to see some top of the line graphics but so far nothing has really looked too impressive.

Today I tried the witcher 2 with everything on ultra (ubersampling off) and textures still seemed muggy up close.

Then battlefield 3, everything at ultra and while it looked ok looking at smaller details like posters and foliage and things like that I could see they didn't look too good.

What are the best looking games on pc that will really wow me with realism level graphics.

(also tried metro 2033 on ultra with dx11 effects but still saw flaws in graphical prowess)

Metro LL looks great. Crysis 3 looks stupid IMO. The first Crysis with mods can look really nice.

Finished downloading Crysis 2 on Origin and all I can say is holy s***.

You get it started, and I'll run you over. That's the best plan I can think of.

Yeah, that was my reaction to all the low res textures.

STALKER series is innately visually stunning, with mods it's up there with the best.

aesthetically dire game to appeal to base sensibilities, over-use of color and blinding bloom

One of the ugliest games I have ever played.

Do you own any of those games on a console, so that you could try a side by side comparison? When I saw the Witcher 2 on the 360 I didn't think much of it, on PC I thought it looked good, but I wasn't blown away or anything like that. Then, I decided to do a direct comparison, and was finally "wowed" by the difference between them.

Out of all the latest games and some classics like Crysis I still think Max Payne 3 looks the best out of all of them.


Tomb Raider is pretty close behind.

I just find with Max Payne 3 the graphics, amazing bullet time animations and death animations along with awesome rag doll physics make it the total package.

Other games look awesome too but this one not only looks awesome but it's also a blast while looking awesome.

Very under appreciated title.
