One of the most controversial years in the games industry is now coming to an end, but which game had the best graphics?
Not until DC has a game given the uncanny appearance of reality so well IMO.
Well that's easy it's either Ryse PC or Unity PC. I haven't seen anything close to those two games this year.
Then you're not looking all that hard.
You're welcome to try to prove me wrong even though I know you can't. Fake photomode shots need not apply. All in game screens: https://farm6.staticflickr.... https://farm4.staticflickr.... https://farm4.staticflickr.... http://abload.de/img/302510... http://abload.de/img/302510... https://farm4.staticflickr.... https://farm6.staticflickr.... https://farm8.staticflickr.... https://farm8.staticflickr.... https://farm8.staticflickr.... I have a lot more where they came from so lets see yours.
I think you need to look at those screen shots Sorane linked to.
This isn't about best graphics, it's about what console you're d-riding. The comment section is truly pathetic.
Don't try to talk sense on n4g. It has to be ps4 explusive to have best graphics or GTFO. I've learned it hard way. Even Ryse on XO looks better than any of the games listed there and whoever says it runs 15 fps is a tard. Runs smoother than most 30 fps games due to good post processing. Mind blowing game when it comes to graphics. No YT videos do the game justice.
you wouldn't admit it if someone showed you better graphics anyways. besides, graphics are heavily based on stylization, so "better" graphics is opinion unless it's a direct port of the same game to another platform.
Ryse came out in 2013 though.
I actually agree with you, actually seeing unity on pc on full settings is very impressive, it's not wonder the consoles had a difficult time running it smoothly. The game is simply stunning. I just won an xbox one unity bundle at work, I played the game briefly and there's a lot of detail and many things happening on screen. Either way I don't why they didn't include Ryse for pc or xbox one, that game is beautiful.
Pc is leading the way even at the start of this gen and is only going to push further away, ryse and unity on a good spec pc just blows everything that the consoles can do out of the water in terms of graphics. I am really considering getting a good pc for the lounge area this gen.
You can't win this on N4G. You should know this. Drive club is the best looking game ever made and until the next PS4 game that the developer promise to be a graphical show piece. /s The problem with drive club was never it's graphics though. I was reviewed poorly due to lack of content, bad Ai and uneventful and soulless driving maps. That's it in a not shell. Many here like to pretend that it was reviewed badly only because online didn't work. When in fact the game is lacking in many area outside of graphics according to the reviews.
Well said sir. Stop making so much sense. It just doesn't fly around here. "Next Gen started with Drive Club" "No it really started with Infamous" scroll down these are actual comments that are agreed upon. This site is hilarious. "The Order" will be the next graphical showcase that's completely empty, soulless, and lacking content that all the Sony fan boys will jerk off too. Playstation is pathetic. Sunset Overdrive and Forza Horizon 2 have actual good game play and depth. What a concept!!!
Never knew they were maps. Always thought of them as tracks. My bad/s. As far as graphics. Driveclub pushes the PS4, huge vista's, volumetric clouds/rain/snow/. The game is actually quite hard in highend cars. The reviews did not do this game justice. While on the subject of graphics. I think it really depends on where the game/engine is being pushed. ATM I'm playing on different days of course. DRIVECLUB - PS4 KNACK - PS4 DRAGON AGE INQUISITION - PC FAR CRY - PC SHADOW OF MORDOR - PC I've played through Ryse on PC and i'd expect no less of good graphics from crytek and a well established engine. Each one of those games I've mentioned has excellent graphics. Dragon age looks like it's using an updated version of the frostbite engine. Also love the lighting.
Agreed in fact Ryse Xb1 still holds supreme on consoles except for AC Unity XB1. It looks a bit better with those incredible environments. Halo MCC is damned beautiful too but doesn't match the titles mentioned.
Bayonetta 2 easily.
Definitely a gorgeous game and one of the best art styles out there, but best looking? It's not even the best looking on the Wii U. I'd give that to Mario Kart 8 or Super Smash Bros. Wii U.
Next gen started with DriveClub
Actually it started with Infamous then Driveclub run away with it...
I would say Ryse, really made an impression.
Please DC was/is a unplayable flop. What approx 4 years in the making then it was unplayable and Sony pulled it. Again please dude stop with the Sony goggles BS. Closed course, 30fps and you dare try to compare it with the OPEN world racer of Forza Horizon 2? Idiots all around here.
Oh, we are not comparing the two games. DC stomps over the last-gen generic monstrosity that is FH2. if anything, FH2 should be compared against other mediocre racers such as the Crew which rely on the "open world" tagline to paper over their last gen gameplay.
Sony ps4 games may have failed in others departments this years but in the graphics department only ryse can be as good as them
Are there any other articles from Gamingbolt or Dualshockers that DON't contain Glorious, amazing graphics about DC and talk more about other aspect of the game...like I don't know...information about any improvement in gameplay or how the online is improving? If graphics was everything, then Lair should have won GOTY on the year it was released on PS3. This is one of the reasons why I haven't giving Gamingbolt or Dualshockers a click on their one-trick Pony bait for over a year now.
eh...if this is about Forza, I bet you'll have a different tone. but if you hate them websites making articles about DC, why don't you go make your own about what ever other games you like for a change instead of hating on articles you don't even have to click if you don't like it in the first place? it's the end of the year, what else do you expect? GoTY, graphics of the year kinda articles are gonna pop up frequently.
You can't prove it or we will never know how I truly feel because there arn't any such articles pertaining to "Spectacular selected Forza Horizon 2 sceeenshots in 1080p" from Dualshockers or Gamingbolt after launch. As a matter of fact, that can be applied to every other game known to man besides of course, Driveclub. "but if you hate them websites making articles about DC, why don't you go make your own about what ever other games you like for a change instead of hating on articles you don't even have to click if you don't like it in the first place?" I did, they are sitting in the N4G archive backburner with the huge pile of other real gaming news that don't see the light of day...unlike articles from DS and GBolt that are approved faster than lightning by the committee here. I do do my fair share of approving articles constantly but it seems like I am the only one approving those other articles that won't ever get to se the light of day here. If these DS, GBolt and other similar articles are the only articles we get approval for, what do you want me to do, not support N4G by not commenting? :/ "GoTY, graphics of the year kinda articles are gonna pop up frequently." Were have you been?, DC articles pertaining to graphics are beaten like a Dead Horse daily here from these two sites since the game was announced last year. The delay of another year made things worst actually like instead of having 1,000 articles that keep taking about the same thing, we now have over 2,000 it seems. Don't believe, ask my friend.

"You can't prove it or we will never know how I truly feel because there arn't any such articles pertaining to "Spectacular selected Forza Horizon 2 sceeenshots in 1080p" from Dualshockers or Gamingbolt after launch." 1. I said "I bet". a bet doesn't have to be proven or it won't be a bet anymore 2. are DS and GB obliged to publish article about any game in particular? I don't think so. they publish what they like. is there by any chance, they like DC more? ahh...the beauty of preference, ha? and also what they think might bring clicks to their site. so there's THAT 3. this article is NOT about DC. it's about graphics and they chose DC. I see no bias in it as I think you also agree that DC's graphic is phenomenal. "Were have you been?, DC articles pertaining to graphics are beaten like a Dead Horse daily here from these two sites since the game was announced last year." I only see 1 or 2 articles about DC on the front page nowadays and out of hundreds of approved articles weekly, I don't think it is close to beating a dead horse. and oh...were you complaining about the same thing when Watch Dogs, Destiny, CoD AW articles spamming N4G earlier? or...is this rage of yours exclusively directed towards DC? I seldom go approving articles lately but if you did submitted your share of articles but not getting the attention like those from GB and DS, well...what can any of us say about THAT? maybe you can keep trying and might one day succeed. who knows and this is not the only article you can comment on, you know. if you don't like them and the game so much, you can simply skip it and no one will even care.
Driveclub... Proving that good graphics are useless without good gameplay.
the funny part, Driveclub have both of them, sry brah. downvote me if you want, but wont change the reality.
@Ps4andxb1 trying hard to diss DC as only graphics, ha? it plays just as beautifully as it looks. but you won't know that because you don't play it. TROLL!
Do you have Driveclub? Because if you owned it I can guarantee you wouldn't be saying that. Fantastic game.
As someone who owns driveclub, that game wasn't anything special.
You can read people's minds? I preoredered driveclub and was anticipating it for a long time. It's an AVERAGE racing game with nice graphics.
P.T. and Driveclub.
Yup the two best graphics for me are Driveclub and Infamous Second Son. That's my opinion.
No Ryse and Assasin's Creed Unity, but MGS GZ, that looks not so good... stupid article
Ryse was last year and calling a game with so many constant graphical glitch as "best graphics" is a stupid thing IMO.
I crapped all over Unity because it was a broken mess but to deny its graphical prowess is just idiotic. Unity on the PC is by far the best looking game ever made. http://s.pro-gmedia.com/vid... http://international.downlo... http://s.pro-gmedia.com/vid... http://s.pro-gmedia.com/vid...
> graphical glitch There only promblem with pop-in
And poor framrate
Infamous was a blast to play, but the story, and one character in particular, are utterly stupid. Drive Club is inexcusably broken and not very much fun to play. Graphics wise, it's obvious the author only plays console games.
Some people still claiming that DriveClub is broken? Please, at least play the game and then comment...
I basically just got the game, and I can say its far from broken. And Im having a blast with it, "fun" is a subjective term, I guess this game isnt fun or easy for people that like bumping their way to the finish line.
http://images.pushsquare.co... Nuff said.
I think Infamous has the best graphics I've seen this year. I didn't think Drive Club even looked as good as the last two Forzas.
I press the pc section to see whats new and the hottest article is about best video game graphics of 2014 for consoles ...... and it is a racing game, why not Nba 2k15 the players and courts look amazing!!!! Jokes aside remove this junk article to the console section.
Dragon age I
If we are talking just about Graphics, well driving driveclub while its raining its truly next gen...
It's the best look ARCADE racing game so far. 100% agree. Note how no one talks about how it plays! Why ? just play outrun 3-D, PGR, Need for speed, SEGA Rally, and any run of the mill driving arcade games with less Graphics.
It is a SIMCADE! You got a problem with that? Game is awesome in every possible way - from car handling to graphics.
Best looking games 2014 (MY OPINION) <---- PC: Watch dogs (With graphics boost) ps4: Destiny X1: Killer Instinct Wii-U: Super Smash Bros I would say, from games i played
well then @Utalkin2me you are doing something wrong as I too have the same as you and Im running it in 4K and 60 fps, back on topic Driveclub is without doubt the best graphics this year and a blast to play to boot
ISS FH2 DC SSO WD PC Version FC 4 PC Version TMCC Halo 2 Anniversary and Halo 4 (Halo 4 remastered looking much better than most of the "next gen" games) DAI (looking extremely good on any platform) TRDE
can PC2020 point put a game like driveclub on steam? nope thought not
Can we have some more drive club articles plz. I almost forgot about it for a while.
Another Drive Club article, sweet.
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter was the best looking game I played in 2014. It's funny how 'gaming' websites completely ignore the PC.
That game is practically one of the best-looking games of all time! I understand your side, these sites just ignore the PC games for some reason. How do they not know of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter?
There's quite a few PC games look better than DriveClub, can't just ignore the platform where the graphics are vastly superior in every way. That said, DC is a gorgeous game and the best visuals on console for 2014 IMO.
Can't see how this is the best game with graphics and visuals. It has massive texture pop up and draw ins with terrible draw distances.
Driveclub is super FUN! And now that the PS4 can do custom soundtracks, racing in DC couldn't be better!
In terms of pure art design. Mario Kart 8.
Totally logic and well deserved...This game has so much for it, too bad the issues with online has crippled a little its overall perception. No need to say i'm so glad to see it's now receiving the recognition it should always have had in the first place!!!
Welcome to n4gdriveclub.com!
And here I thought Killzone SF had the best graphics.
Graphics don't matter! Because we have games with simple graphics that are still awesome and fun to play. So obviously graphics don't matter. That's why PS4, Xone and Wii U have NES graphics. Time stood still and graphics never evolved. Because graphics don't matter, lol!
It's impossible to really tell. It's probably a tie across several games.
