Jimquisition: The Best Looking Game of This Generation

The Jimquisition takes a break from discussing consumer shenanigans to focus a little on the games themselves.

What exactly is the best looking game this generation, and why does it look better than the games you're all thinking of whenever such a discussion usually comes up? As always, the best looking man of this generation has the answer (Jim is the best looking man because of his muscles).

just started the vid , instead of saying viva pinata , he could have said uncharted 2 ...it's colorfull and NOT grimdark.
viva pinata is not a good choice.

Edit: saw the end of the vid..he should have said "art style" and not "colors" at the start ..art style is the king especially in HD ..that why 2d titles and cell shading games rocks and that's why i'm looking forward to jet set radio SEN/XBL/VITA ...

i understand the logic but i just can't agree on viva pinata ... in term of art style, many games have done better with bright colors as well .

It's like he just ignored all the beautifull 2D attempts made this gen

jim sterling is actually awesome

he hasnt played much on pc now has he? I think Diablo 3 and wow are the best looking games this gen.

I'm quite sure he has, being a professional video game journalist and all. He was clearly trying to make a point about how some graphical styles have a longer-term appeal.

kevnb1438d ago (Edited 1438d ago )

and its a good point, but he left out WOW and crysis. Alot of those supposed awesome looking console games already look kind of bad to me now, and everyone will see it next gen when this whole hd thing settles down.

Redempteur1438d ago

Wow and crysis don't stand the test of time as well that's why Wow was updated and that's why crysis 1 look bland now...

vortis1438d ago

uh, Allods looks better than WoW and it's a WoW-clone.

This video was absolutely pointless. So colors mean it's better? Games like LIMBO are black and white and look fukin dope Journey for example will look awesome in 10 years. And just because a game will not look good in 10 years doesn't mean it has some fukin good graphics. Look at FF7 for example, it looks like a joke nowadays, but that doesn't mean it's not one of the best games ever. The same goes with Deus Ex, Half Life, Shadow of The Colossus and so on.

I understand bland and colorless visuals are less apealing, but war is ugly, it's grey and it's dark. Those are war games, not pinata games or games about flowers and rainbows.

He doesn't have enough strong arguments. All he says it's that colors make graphics look better and cellshade it's timeless. Well, that doesn't make Viva Pinata the best looking game htis generation.

Rayman Origins for example, is absolutely gorgeous. But you can't compare Rayman's art and visuals to Uncharted. Uncharted tries to go to photo realism, Rayman is cartoonish.
