Are the real-time graphics of FFXV better-looking than the PS2 FF games' FMVs?

I'm curious about this because the graphics have kind of leveled off in recent years and stopped improving so quickly:

PS2 real-time > PS1 pre-rendered
PS3 real-time < PS2 pre-rendered
PS4 real-time < PS3 pre-rendered

So I guess it's safe to say that after the awkward and clunky PS1 era, all the FMVs have been looking pretty darn good, basically to the point where they don't really get much better anymore. I mean look at the beginning FMV of Chapter 12 in FFXIII. That's the prettiest thing I've ever seen in a video game, and it's pretty hard to top that:

So there's no way that FFXV real-time can ever top that. FFXV still looks pretty much like FF Versus XIII at this point, so it's not a huge improvement. But what about if we compared FFXV real-time to the FMVs of the FF games from the PS2 era? FFXII's FMVs are still pretty eye-popping today, except the fact that all the humans look like they're made of plastic. FFX's FMVs are also pretty impressive, but I'm not sure how they would compare with the real-time battle gameplay trailer of FFXV from E3 2013. I'm still pretty surprised at how good the Anima summoning relatively early in that game looked. What do you think?

I know. Given the mental state of people on this board it might not be.

Obviously looking at Pre-rendered Lightning Returns scenes, It's obvious that we got some way to go before XV real time look better than 13 pre-rendered.

Is this based on technological facts or just subjective bias?

Just subjective bias, if you like to call it that. Technological facts are no fun.

Ps3 graphics look way better than ps2 pre-rendered so why wouldn't ps4? This is a dumb topic.
