NowGamer- "Gameplay is for wimps and lefty liberals. What we want is graphics and we want lots of them. Strike that, we want all of them. But what games at this year’s E3 had them?"
If there gonna talking about Best Graphics Of The Show Halo 4 and Forza Horizon also should have been on that list :)
No GOWA and Black Ops 2 instead? WTF? I really thought it is an objetcive, subtile and correct list when I found no God Of War Ascension and "BLACK OPS 2" INSTEAD! EPIC FAIL!
@Halo4 Sarcasm, right?
It goes in this order as for best graphics. 1). Star Wars 1313 2). Watch Dogs 3). Last of Us
Nick Jones the author of this article admits that God Of War Ascension should be on this list. Maybe he will update it.
Why not? http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... Why is it that the people on this website in particular have such a hard time admitting that Halo 4 actually is a technologically and graphically stunning game?
Black Ops 2 should not be on this list.
Graphics is not that simple to judge, even if you are a lefty liberal that wants all of 'em (couldn't stop laugh at that). Visuals aren't just about poly count, light effects, render techniques, AA or HDR... Animations and art design says a lot too. Not to mention the cinematics and camera direction that help a lot to define the visual style. You'll be hardly pressed to define one game that beats all others in all fields. And even when you have all the numbers to show you have the most complex tech, it doesn't mean it looks the best. Personally the visual in Star Wars didn't impressed me at all... But I noticed my mouth open for longer than usual in Watch Dogs reflections and in The Last Of Us animations. Tomb Raider had some great cinematics too.
the thing that most grabbed me about watch dogs / the last of us is the voice acting, its really top-notch , ppl overlook this for graphics witch is a shame
No Halo4?, his list is broken...hell I always thought Reach was a nice step up despite what the haters said, but come on now Halo4 looks amazing, look at all the detail in his weapon and hands, look at the enviromental detail and we know its a sandbox oriented FPS, seriously give credit where credit is due....personally after the games running on PC, then I would say Crysis3 and Beyond looked like the best graphics on consoles, but Beyond is a bunch of interactive cutscenes, like Heavy Rain which makes it a helluva lot easier to beef up the graphics, so really for all the games shown on consoles, Halo4 is right there with the best of them graphically....lol, and we know it will run & play better than Crysis3. Halo just gets alot of hate 'cause its popular, yep say what you want but you all know its true.
Are they blind? Black ops 2 looked like total shit compared to The Last of Us, Watch Dogs and God of War:A
Yeah dont understand why Halo 4 isnt there, looked absolutely stunning.
"Halo just gets alot of hate 'cause its popular" That's sort of true, but not in the way you mean it, at least not from my perspective. Much like CoD, I've never understood why Halo was so popular. I scoff at both for the same reason. There are much better games that sell much less, so it makes me smh at the masses.
In all reality, nothing on the consoles should be on there. Not hating, but it is a fact that pc games at this point outdate the graphical capabilities of the consoles by far. Funny thing is, is most of those videos in the 360 press conference are running off of a pc. Don't believe me? Take a look at what the controller is plugged up into in front of them. A nvidia cooler master haf x pc case... http://store.nvidia.com/sto...
people will see things differently. It is just the way we are. Obviously this is all opinion driven instead of solid facts to proclaim one "better" than another. This isnt like we are comparing a high end pc to the 2600 where there is a clear decision. I liked several games at this E3. They each had something that appealed to me from their artistic nature to the grittyness of their environments. The high points (for me) were: MS - Halo 4, Forza, Gears Judgement. Sony - Last of Us, God of War, Beyond Ubisoft - Rayman Legends, Watch Dogs I would also say that (to me) EA Medal of honor had a more realistic look than Cod Blops2. then again, blops2 was set in the not so distant future but it was the realistic debris and destruction of MoH that I liked over CoD. I did like the cel shaded look of borderland 2 as well.
@geth1gh Poor consoles gamers they are being taken for a ride just like usual lol. They are shown PC versions of games running maxed out, console boys get hyped. Most of them are like(zomg they managed to squeeze more performance out of 6 year old hardware, these consoles have much more power left over). Then you have developer comments like (blah blah game uses maximum power of console hardware, except when the next sequel releases they go on and say oh last time we didnt really mean it this time we are serious). All of this drama is created to hype the console base, think BF3 before the game was released the devs were only showing PC versions, because they knew if the console version is leaked people wont see any improvements and the hype will die. So they kept making promises oh the console version will look almost as good as PC version. Later when the game was released console boys were severely dissapointed. Its the natural order of things, console gamers just are gullable to promises lol. A little example for you: Nvidia comes out and says their next GPU will perform 100% better than the last one, PC gamers will belive the statement once they see benchmarks supporting the claims. Sony or Ms comes out and say their next console will be 10x as powerful, console gamers.. well they will take MS and Sony word for it(MS and Sony just need to be creative with their marketing phrases), no need for them to prove anything. Before Sony released the PS3 they were making it look like every game will be running in 1080p. Console boys fully belived the hype in the end they received a product that only did 5-10% of its games in 1080p lol.
Why are there disagrees Halo 4 and Forza look much better than Black Ops 2, and we all know that FarCry 3, Assassin's Creed 3, Crysis 3--hell, every cross-platform game will run at less than acceptable speeds on consoles--we're playing on 6 year old hardware! It's one thing to get a next gen console too early. It's another to get one too late.
Any one of those games on PC is going to blow away Halo4.
That I can definitely agree with.
Check my post above. They are all running (3rd party at least) on a pc. http://i9.photobucket.com/a... They should be sued for false advertisement.
I know that, I've posted about it too! http://n4g.com/news/1013225... Comment #1.6
Yea but whatever I guess. The people above me want to disagree with me so they can keep their consoles and their lies. I was just trying to show them the lies they are being fed. Doesn't matter to me. I just build a new rig a few months ago with a 680 and a 3930k at its heart. Also got a 27" 120hz 3d monitor. So I am good either way :D
halo 4 seriously ???? that game looks exactly like halo 3 with little beter colors i wont bother with forza
+1 As much as I love the Forza series the graphics of this new one are nothing special at all. Anyone one who plays Forza seriously doesnt play for the graphics anyway...and that why this new one looks like a watered down peice of rubish. Im sure it will attract alot of new sckoolers though
Looks much better than GT5 so it should be in the list.
Please take away his bubbles. And while you're doing that, can I have some? I don't know how I somehow lost mine.
I don't think the list is for What Are MS's Yearly First Party Titles One and Two.
1). Star Wars 1313 2). Watch Dogs 3). Last of Us and out of this list the only one on home console is the last of us , ps3 :> the other 2 where ran on high end pcs.
yeah that still impresses me. I wasn't as surprised by the nature of TLoU's graphics as I was with Uncharted 2 or Killzone I expected it to look the way it does. But in a show like this it's amazing that a game from the 6 year old ps3 can still be ranked among the best against new pc's. God of War has had a nice upgrade as well. The image seems to sit a lot better on the screen compared to the previous. Just think what Santa Monica and ND would be able to do with a PC game....
@Halo 4 - Troll much ?
Absolutely! To omit Halo 4 & Forza Horizon is ridiculous. Also, the physics & AI in Halo 4 are incredible. @Mystic Strummer, Ok, what games do you feel are better than Halo that sell far less than Halo?
Yes I agree Halo4. They should've been on the list along with the Ubi-Soft games and that Hawken game. All these were excellent visually. I'm not sure why you got so many disagrees???? This entire post is just opinion and I guess everyone is entitle to theirs.
GoW:A Beyond:Two Souls Last of Us Watch Dogs Gears:Judgement
Beyond really shocked people at Sony's conference.
Beyond def had THE best character models hands down. Even better than watchdogs which many believed to be the best game graphically.
1). Star Wars 1313 pc 2). Watch Dogs pc 3). Beyond ps3 4). Last of Us ps3 360 can't make the list even with gears 4. lol http://www.gamesradar.com/m...
I'm surprised that B Ops 2 made this list over games such as Halo 4 and God of War: Ascension. :/
Lol halo 4. But seriously God of War 3 is probably the best looking console game out there. so God of War: Ascension will be the best looking game when it comes out.
Lol god of war best looking...?? Fanboy much haha!
Star Wars 1313
Beyond had the best graphics.
LOLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!1 IHateYouFanboys.... fan-bloody-tastic. Showing people everywhere how deeply uninformed you are. I'm shocked even by the poster above (JokesOnYou - #1.1.9) who said "Beyond looked like the best graphics on consoles, but Beyond is a bunch of interactive cutscenes, like Heavy Rain which makes it a helluva lot easier to beef up the graphics". Hahah, making stuff up are we? It's gonna be fun debunking all the stupid, ill-informed fanboy drivel that will be aimed at this game as more is revealed. It's happened many times before with PS3 games and will happen again. How about reading the DigtalFoundry tech analysis? These guys are THE best around when it comes to video game technological analysis. http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
Best PC graphics...close race between Watch Dogs and Star Wars 1313. Best console graphics, The Last of Us with no competition...
Agreed, but Beyond was pretty nifty looking too.
Beyond characters are more highly detailed then anything I have seen, facial animations included. I do agree with you there after rewatching the trailer. PS3 may be 6 years old but the devs know how to utilize the gfx card so well now.
Yeah, it depends on what you value more. 1313 definitely had higher visual fidelity in those scenes, but you also have to take into account that Watch Dogs is apparently open world/sandbox styled, which is no mean feat with those kinds of looks. But while Watch Dogs may be more technically impressive, 1313 was certainly the prettiest looking thing there. Well, prettiest looking GAME, anyway (Agni's Philosophy wasn't a game, but it was incredible to behold).
you have to tell me were you get your weed from. 1313 doesnt even come close to watchdogs. most sandbox titles sacrifice graphics to accommodate the scale of freedom and environment,
I have to agree with some other people. Watch Dogs may not have been real but a video designed to look like gameplay. There are several inconsistencies in the video. And it isn't as if Ubi has never done this sort of thing before.
Morgan, there's two different videos of Watch Dogs, each is slightly different - it's gameplay.
well said STAR WARS 1313 was a MINDBLOW i cant believe they didnt show it in a conference ppl would be like WOOOOW but also lets not forget star wars 1313 was running with the latest pc spec as for consoles the last of us and beyond simply owned the rest with style and eaze hands down
how did star wars 1313 get on the list, it looks like the forced unleashed. im so not impressed, i was expecting next gen graphics by comments on here but when i seen it was disappointed,
I didn't know till just now but Star Wars 1313 is using Unreal Engine 3 in DX11, similar to the Samaritan demo. http://www.gametrailers.com... It is amazing what the engine can actually do by a third party dev.
Graphically on console is last of us. Halo 4 most certainly looks impressive for a halo/360 game. Definitely a jump from reach so it deserves a mention. However best overall graphics definitely go to watch dogs and star wars 1313...if u don't think so there is some fanboy in your eyes... And of course disagrees from the butthurt.
star wars 1313 definitely, no doubt in my mind. in my opinion it was thee best graphics of the show. watch dogs is another really good looking one. those games stole the show in terms of visuals. an "agree" for you. you know me man, im not one to get butthurt over someone elses opinion. let the butthurt think what they want
The "butthurt" are actually the people who know Watch Dogs and Star Wars were both running on PC, unlike the real console graphics king again from Naughty Dog and Santa Monica, Last of US and God of War Ascension. You're a delusional 360 fanboy obviously.
No shit. h3llrais3r even made the distinction himself. And why would a delusional 360 fanboy put a qualifier on the graphics of Halo 4; "looks impressive FOR a halo/360 game". Honestly, you just accused a seemingly level headed person of being a fanboy. Are you upset that the PS3 isn't as powerful as high end PCs? Or that Last of Us didn't have the best graphics at E3? lategamer below says it best - we're talking about best graphics...not best console graphics and not almost best graphics. Why is the platform of any significance when talking about the overall best graphics?
again these 2 games u mentioned especialy star wars 1313 were running on latest pc tech
Why's it matter if there on latest PC tech? This is best graphics, not best console graphics, not almost best graphics, but best graphics.
Really? Rayman Legends.
As far as consoles, I personally believe Beyond looked better than The Last of Us. As far as overall graphics Watch Dogs.
I still haven't seen the watchdogs trailer yet, will have to get onto that. Best i saw was Beyond.
Beyond looks stunning.. Damn close to reality but those games are kinda like simulation & choices and not much of controlling lots of action.. Last of Us takes the win to me console wise..
God of war, the last of us, watch dogs and beyond all looked amazing.
In this order StarWars1313 Crysis 3 WatchDogs MOH:Warfighter Last Of Us Beyond FarCry3
Black ops 2 over Metro? Cmon now.
I wouldn't say Beyond and Last of Us had the BEST graphics of the whole show but they were pretty damn close.I liked what I saw. How could you look at those facial expressions and features and tell me otherwise.
the author wrote "Ellie walks ankle-deep in some water and it just gets the lower part of her jeans wet… It’s a subtle effect, but oh-so impressive." praising a effect thats been existent since uncharted 1? someone hasnt played uncharted then huh? i know this article is called best graphics of show, but really the games graphics listed dont seem to be a huge graphical leap if any. blops 2 still looks like MW2, the last of us still looks like uncharted, crysis 3 looks like crysis 2 and so on and so fourth. does anyone else agree?
Best of show doesn't have to be a massive improvement over anything already out. UC3 and Crysis 2 aren't at E3, nor is MW2. The Last of Us IS there. Crysis 3 IS there. Black Ops II IS there. So we compare these games to the other games that ARE there, and we decide which ones were best. Honestly, Black Ops II shouldn't be there, as there were better looking games (Tomb Raider, Assassin's Creed, Halo 4, and others) showcased. But that's not even the point.
Watch Dogs Star Wars 1313 Crysis 3 Metro Last Light Last of Us Beyond God of War Ascension Assassin's Creed 3 My list in Order :)
