"Number One, Metal Gear Solid 4

This game is by far one of the absolute best looking games to release this generation."

no. just no. i stopped reading after this. there are many PS3 exclusives that look better than this, let alone multiplatform or 360 exclusives too.

I didn't mean to downvote.. it was by accident.

I totally agree with you.
NotSoSilentBob  +   674d ago
What multiplat-form/exclusive to the 360 is even close? Take off the fanboy goggles too.

in my opinion
1. God of War 3
2. Metal Gear Solid 4
3. Killzone 2/3
4. Uncharted 2/3
5. Heavy Rain
MightyPatapon  +   675d ago
God of War III has yet to be topped.
remanutd55  +   675d ago
yes i agree, to me God of War 3 is the epitome of gaming this generation.
oh and i forgot to add Ratchet and Clank A Crack in Time on that list next to Heavy Rain.

In my opinion these are the best for ps3 360
Ps3:
1.tie between uncharted 2/3 and the last of us if it holds up till it gets released
2. god of war 3 and hopefully ascension too
3.killzone 2/3
4. metal gear solid 4
Also BF3 for ps3 looked really good
The rest could easily be ps3 exclusives like R3 infamous 2 heavy rain/beyond two souls LBP1&2 , etc.
If MGSGZ looks like it did for the trailer when it releases for ps3 then that will be the top spot no doubt.

360:
1. halo 4 is looking like the top one.
2. crysis 2
3. the witcher 2
4. gears of war 3
5. Alan Wake
6. Fable 2&3
Forza would prolly be on this list

Wii is not even allowed into a this gen graphics king conversation.
And to the Xbot fanboy that is proclaiming Rage looked as good as Killzone 2 or 3.....Get a life clown, Killzone 2 alone buried Rage in graphics, & that is without running at 60fps, Killzone 2 & 3 BOTH still stand out as killer console graphics, & they released years ahead of Rage, & not only do they look better, they play better (which is stupidly crazy, considering a 60fps game should automatically spell better gameplay & controls), & Killzone 2 & the underated Killzone 3 are streets ahead as games as a whole, compared to Rage.

Now, where the hell is ANY of Insomniacs Ratchet games on this crap list, as Ratchet is not only THE BEST looking, playing & everything king of the platformer genre, but is easily one of the best looking games to hit any next gen console this gen.
Ratchet & Clank has 3 superb looking & playing offerings worthy of being not only on this list, but near the damn top, along with Unchartered 2 & 3, along with Crysis 1&2, & even the downloadable title Wipeout HD (which looks freaking amazing & was totally unappreciated by gamers, & also is one of the few 1080p x 60fps games this gen), & Wipeouts CHEAP Fury add on, actually changed up the original visual style & added even more visual fidelity & class to an already incredibly beautiful looking title.

So my list would go something like this.

1. Crysis 2
2. Ratchet: ACIT (as was last really awesome one is series)
3. Unchartered 2 & 3
4. Gears Of War 2 & 3
5. Wipeout HD/Fury
There are some games that equally deserve mention like all 3 Motorstorms, GOW3, Killzone 2 & 3, GT5 & Forza 4, Tekken Tag in 3D looks phenominal, even Kameo (even though a launch 360 title & played really crappy especially considering from RARE), Burnout Paradise (even though worst Burnout is series, apart from that crap d/loadable turd).
The fact is, that you really can't isolate this gen to just the 5 best looking games, as there has been so many AWESOME looking 360 & PS3 games, that justice cannot possibly prevail if just 5 games are listed.....As I have just proven, games that deserve to be on this list moreso, & if not, evenly, as ones that did make it. And if you don't believe me, get your a$$ onto the store & purchase WipeoutHD, or pick up a copy cheap of Ratchet:ACIT, get & play a wide selection of games & realise that more than just 3rd & 1st person shooters & street racing games are out there & looking if not as good, then f%$king better, than the mainstream graphics benchmarks that all the sheep sing the praises of.
Makemyteapunk is testament to what I'm talking about, as the 360 fanboy is arguing about 2 almost identical looking racers.....who cares if Forza looks slightly better than GT5, it is so close that one could argue GT5 looks better due to a slight preference in art style (which you may either have Maketea towards Forza's art style, or more likely based on your other comments, your just a fanboy b1atch, that hates all things PS3 & Sony)......settle down little girl, there just pretty much equal machines that serve us up, almost identical visuals.
So the debate is more an artsyle situation.
Adolph Fitler  +   675d ago
I will say that a game that I thought would have to make the list, had a last offering that looked more like a N64 game than past offerings & that game was Sphincter Smell: Conviction.....talk about a different art style & bacwards step for a series that was a benchmark in visuals....Conviction honestly looked like a slightly better than Wii game, as opposed to it's ultra realistic looking, dark, atmospheric, games of past. It did offer slight improvements gameplay wise, in that it was trying to cater to a wider selection of gamer, & it went full cartoony looking, sell-out, dissapointment style, visuals.
But, off that & onto how many awesome looking games are out there on the ONLY 2 current gen machines (360/PS3 obviously). There are sooo many more than 5, it's ridiculous.
But, just as I called out a 360 fanboy for arguing over GT5 & Forza4 & his obvious disdain for everything Sony, as he undermined Killzone's awesome graphics, thanks in large part to art style, & the undeniable, undisputed FACT that it is peerless in the FPS world for the graphics it offered at the time & evidence is that ALL that aren't blinded by fanboyism, still know the game holds up visually, aurally, gameplayly & storylinely to ANY other console title to date.
As I was saying, I will also call out fanboys from any side, & Sony fanboys that have included Resistance 3 on this list, need a visit to an optomitrist for either laser corrective surgery, or removal of fanboy goggles, as I lurve the entire Resistance series & 3 is the best looking & best game in the series in general & even a better all round game than many games on this list.....but fact is that Resistance 1-3 will never make a best graphics list, as they were just behind the 8 ball when it came to graphics.....Resistance series is average to slightly better than (depending which one) graphically, & whilst far from terrible, they are also pretty far off other titles like Killzone, Crysis 2, & others.....They are more on current gen Halo type level.......in that they are far from groundbreaking, but have there moments & are more than serviceable. In fact, Resistance 3 is one of THE BEST fps gameplay experiences this gen (& playing it in 3D on my 64" tv is an experience no COD, BF, Crysis, or any other shooter has offered this gen. But graphically, it is not in the top 10 even, definately would make it further down my top 20 list, but 5 nup, 10 nope, 15 naaaa.
Lvl_up_gamer  +   675d ago
Sorry I don't agree with this list but it's his own opinion so I respect it.

I think there are games on that list and not on that list that deserve to be #1 vs what's listed.
DaLegendKiller  +   675d ago
what about art styles that are used in games like Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time or Rayman:Origins ...both are amazing looking games in my opinion and should be part of the elites
NastyLeftHook0  +   675d ago
the last of us, uc3
masa2009  +   675d ago
MGS4 is the right choice because nothing is pre-rendered.
Unfortunately, Gears or Uncharted can't say the same.
CDzNutts  +   675d ago
So pre-rendering something negates its prettiness?

Hmm....the logic is weak with you, my friend.
IWentBrokeForGaming  +   675d ago
For me my fav. looking games this gen are =

Uncharted Series, MGS4, Killzone 2 + 3, God of War 3, Gears of War Series, and Alan Wake!

Unreleased title that I know will be great as well = The Last of Us
mistajeff  +   675d ago
It's a tricky list to make, for sure. Do you judge it overtly, or by the limitations of the platform it's exclusive to or leads on? Something like Battlefield 3 or Max Payne 3 on PC is unmatched by anything; yet neither managed to give me the feeling of awe that I felt while playing Uncharted 2 and 3 on PS3. MGS4 isn't a bad choice for #1, even if I may not agree. There's plenty to nitpick, yet visually, it adds up to more than the sum of its parts.
byrnezy  +   675d ago
I love how people mention games that aren't even out yet... alas new Halo, Last of us so on...

Best looking games (imho) this gen that are actual playable

1. Uncharted 3
2. Uncharted 2
3. God Of War 3
4. Metal Gear Solid 4
5. Gears Of War 3

PC games such as BF3, crysis obviously look better but are running hardware that aren't even comparable to this gen hardware...
Qrphe  +   675d ago
If this was a legit list, it'd Final Fantasy XIII and God of War III.
CDzNutts  +   675d ago
Where the hell is Kratos?
claud3  +   675d ago
Do not agree with that list at all..
DivineAssault  +   675d ago
God of War 3 destroys gears of wars graphics.. Uncharted looks better too.. Not that the game is ugly but its not as good looking
thawind  +   675d ago
LA NOIRE
BongSmack  +   675d ago
I'm trying to understand why Gears of War is on a best graphics list. Wait is this 2006?
Also seems strange that MGS4 is on the list and Crysis isn't.
black911  +   675d ago
Gears Really LOL???

3 games that deserve to be up their
1.God OF war 3
2.Crysis
3.Gran Turismo 5
brew  +   675d ago
God of War III is stunning.
StreetsofRage  +   675d ago
I was more impressed with open world games like GTA4 or Skyrim. Games with small linear levels like Uncharted is nice but that doesn't impress me as much as it did earlier this gen.

LOL @ the Gears of War haters. Gears 3's graphics are way better than Killzone 3. Not even close my friends. But God of War 3 should be on this list.
Lvl_up_gamer  +   675d ago
I feel Killzone 3 should have been replaced with Battlefield 3.

I don't agree with MGS4 being #1 and don't think it should be on a list of only the "top 5".

But it's only opinions and everyone has one where it's very seldom they are all in agreement.
omi25p  +   675d ago
1. Max Payne 3
2. Uncharted 3
3. Gears of War 3
4. Battlefield 3
5. Forza Motorsport 4

Spelling corrections:

nutral = neutral

immidiatly = immediately
jetpacksheep  +   675d ago
Great list, I like how you included lots of console games, because no matter the age of the hardware they still manage to impress visually.
mayberry  +   675d ago
Agreable list. Love killzone 2/3 in true opticle 7.1 surround sound! and 3d too! Has to be experienced to appreciate the effort GG and sony put into the Killzone series! Any fps fan should play these titles!
MYSTERIO360  +   675d ago
Its funny how 3 out of the 5 games listed are ps3 exclusives. But i think the title should be renamed "5 Games With The Best Graphics This Generation so far" as this gen isn't over.

Theirs still some great graphic games coming out like far cry 3, crysis 3, star wars 1313, tomb raider and the amazing metal gear solid ground zeros.

But if were taking right now
-La Noire
-God of war 3
-Killzone 2/3
-Battlefield 3
-uncharted 3

Can people please stop saying GOW 3, i cant tell if your saying God of War 3 or Gears of War 3

Btw, WHY ISNT GOD OF WAR 3 ON THIS LIST WTF?
Steadyhndz  +   675d ago
Anything that is Xbox 360 exclusive should not even be considered...

Uncharted 3 wasn't even nearly impressive

MGS 4....ehh they were decent graphics

BF3 and Killzone I can see being on this list, but there are plenty of games out there that surpass the other 3 games on this list.
SaffronCurse  +   675d ago
Left out God of war 3 =(
