15 Games that look epic in black and white

Darryl Linington from ITF Gaming writes: The world is a colourful and vibrant place, which in turn means that the various worlds featured in video games are equally vibrant and colourful. However, what if we did in actual fact see in black and white, or television never took the giant leap forward into colour back in the 1950’s?

Truthfully, we would not know the wiser if the technology never branched out into colour, which means that while typing out this opinion piece my screen would indeed be black and white right now. This is why we have decided to come up with a list of games that would actually look pretty epic even if they were developed and designed in black and white only. (Batman: Arkham City, Culture, Darksiders 2, PC, PS3, Sleeping Dogs, Wii, Xbox 360)

this article reminded me of how i used to change the color settings on my TV to B&W last gen with my PS2. It was almost like a new experience playing that was and added a bit a replay value my old games

Nice screen shots, I really like the Rage one, did you just monochrome them or did you adjust brightness & contrast at all?

Popped the game in, dropped the colour and adjusted in a photoshop to depict what I was seeing on screen. I could of shot the screens with a Canon 500D, but would have taken forever to get all the screens done.
