King of graphics

#1cedricthegreatPosted 10/4/2011 7:37:39 PM
Back in 2008 MGS4 was on top when it came to graphics, then in 2009 Uncharted 2 took the crown. Killzone 3 had it for the start of this year then Crysis 2 dethrowned it. Gears of War 3 made some noise by splitting the consensus but now it seems Rage is the new King. Next month Uncharted 3 drops so will it be a contender in the graphics department.

Other honorable mentions for best graphics for its time FFXIII(2010)
Uncharted 1(2007)
Killzone 2(2009)

I don't agree with Crysis 2 being so highly rated. It's so ****ing ugly that it's almost unbearable to look at, let alone in detail.

You forgot God of War 3, which graphically is still the most impressive game I've played.

Why? Because **** you is why.

Crysis 2 is way too damn blurry to consider king of console graphics. Imo

It's about having great taste, and not liking things which the mainstream "sheople" do (bad taste). -Agent_Greer

I think the intro to God of War III and the whole opening stage, with all the set pieces, is technically the most impressive thing any console has done to date.

Overall though, Uncharted 2 still crushes all other games technically.

I've said this for over a year, but Uncharted 3 will be the only thing to supersede it.

This is a tough call but I'm thinking either FF13, KZ3, UC2, or God of War 3 as the most impressive games I've seen so far.

Also Ratchet and Clank and Valkyria Chronicles also wowed me.

As for fighting games I'm calling it now DOA 5 is gonna take that title. Check out that trailer for it to see why.

Kirby's Epic Yarn is my favorite looking game this generation so far. And also one of my favorite sounding games.

Play games, not systems. There are people who like games that you don't, grow up.

This is more a topic about the technical side of games though. While artistically you may appreciate it, the game could run on a calculator, it's that archaic in tech - as are all Wii games.
