As the year is coming to an end, many gamers are asking which game released this year looks most attractive and graphically good looking. To help, The Gaming Report has round up the top 10 best-looking and most attractive games of 2014.
I haven't played many new games this year, but DRIVECLUB and Advanced Warfare are up there in terms on visuals.
Honestly AW looked like ghosts(ps4) When they were realeasing those screenshots it looked way wayy better than the final product Driveclub i have yet to play, waiting on the Plus version
It is far superior to Ghost in every way what are you smoking.
AW looks way better than ghosts dude.
So I just bought DriveClub this weekend at GameStop ($39.99 on sale). I will say the game looks great but I think I had my expectations for it's graphics set too high. I will say I'm playing on a crappy 19" Samsung (720p) because my basement recently had a water pipe break and the drywall is getting replaced. So I'm not using my regular gaming TV (Samsung UN55F8000BF). It should look much better on my normal tv. Either way, in the videos I watched on YouTube I was more impressed than with what I saw while playing it. Keep in mind, I still think it looks great and it plays very well. I was just expecting better. The weather effects though, are freaking amazing. The game is fun, I love the handling. don't know why people were complaining about the AI because the AI is great. I'm not that far into the game yet, but I've beat every race I've played in first place while completing all the side tasks (speed, lap time, etc). There were a few races I had to restart in order to beat the time. I also haven't played against anyone online yet though. I'd definitely give the game at least an 8.0 (I give it an 8.5). I'd personally like it more if there was American and Japanese cars rather than just European. I also like games that you can customize your vehicles in. I understand those are features this game wasn't meant to have. The features that I wanted did not impact my score. I will update my impressions of the graphics once I get back to my gaming TV.
Destiny may be great to look at, but the gameplay is average at best, and no I have not done the dlc, because a game with so much hype and a $60 price tag, should be able to hold its own, and without me forking out more cash to make the game worth playing.
the actual gameplay is the best part about destiny, its just the grind, and lack of content that lets it down.
Agreed man, the constant grinding in the same places, for the same crap, is what really brings it down for me. Good game by all means but it's lost some appeal after how much work it is. I suppose that isn't an issue if your a kid and have gobs of time on your hands but, as an adult paying bills that weekly reset really pisses me off lol.
i love destiny,seriously love it but lack of content has killed it. a few years back i had EQ2 and u could grind on that but there was 60lvl and different areas with certain lvl instances etc(lower areas no agro mobs) so when u had a high lvl u could start a ALT because u gamed in different areas and zones with loads of missions. Prob with Destiny is the fact u have done all areas by lvl 15 except the raids and couplke strikes,so by the time u max lvl at 20 u are already grinding the same lvls u did and thats what kills it imo. also the rotation on strikes are a mess so constantly repeating same strikes in the playlists. shame because i really do think that Destiny couldnt of become the biggest console game ever,it had the chance but greed came into it too and DLC was the chosen path.
Destinys only saving grace was its gameplay IMO.
Great musical score and impressive visuals too IMO.
Lol at the disagrees
Destiny !! say whaaat
What a wack list. Destiny number 1? lol umm nah.
The list isn't in any order he said, but I was shocked Destiny even made it on there. The game's certainly not ugly but it isn't top 10 either.
True. It's hold back by old gen. Same can be said for Far Cry 4. Not that dramatic in FCs Case. The open world in that one is a huge achievement. I would say GTA 5 is on of the best. The environments are so much more alive on Next Gen. Horizon 2 certainly looks good too. Next Year starts good with The Order graphically and that's just the beginning. Finally the 360 and PS3 get put aside by devs.
LOL! Too funny. Not enough full next gen games to really make a great list. We clearly know Driveclub, AC Unity etc will be (or should be) near the top of that list.
They forgot to put infamous second son on the list
And Sunset Overdrive. The art style and contrasts used look like nothing else out there. I cant understand why Dragon Age is on the list. The character models look bland.
I saw Dragon Age and it looks like it's full of nice little effects.
Satire? Destiny no.1? FH2 no.2 ahead of Drive Club? Yes. Satire.
No if you READ anything before jumping to the list you'd know there's no order for the list.
Then why number them? And why starting at 10 working down to 1. Bit odd, don't you think?
Use your brain. If the writer states the list has no certain order then the numbers don't mean a ranking system. They could've used the alphabet if they wanted.
Why use anything if they don't mean anything? I'm betting if he didn't use the numbering system at least half of these comments would not have been made. "Use your brain", he did it on purpose.
He said the list was in no particular order but Destiny really shouldn't be on the list at all.
"He said the list was in no particular order" Yet numbers them 10 to 1. Question everything.
It's just a numbering method. If you'd like, we can change it.
If it's in no particular order then why count them down from 10 to 1? In fact why the need for a 'numbering method' at all? At least you listed them all on one page, I do congratulate you for that.
neither should FH2. Infamous needs to be on there above one of those. A man would replace them with Infamous and Mario Kart (not realistic but colorful and amazing looking)
For future articles like this: I'd recommend an alphabetical list when no ranking is involved.
Nice list. Total agreed.
My list (dont care the release date) 1)Ryse son of Rome 2)Forza Horizon 2 3)Drive Club 4)Killzone Shadow Fall 5)Halo 5 (played MP Beta) 8)The Order 1886 9)Crysis 3 10)Dragon Age Inquisition 11)Uncharted 4 (eventhough alpha looking gorgeous) All are incredible looking games but Ryse has kinda CGI quality!
I almost typed a stream of expletives. Ridiculous comments have that effect on me. Ryse and Killzone came out last year. Halo, The Order, and Uncharted aren't out yet. I'll leave it at that.
Dude. You have to stop this crap. Driveclub looks better than Forza Horizon 2. Accept it and move on. And many of those look better than Ryse.
I wasnt gonna hit the neg button til you said that last part about ryse, lol.
I'm not wrong. Go buy Ryse off Steam. It's on sale. Beautiful game. But even on Ultra, there are many better looking games out there.
I thought were talking about this list? Thanks for moving the goalpost.
Many of those look better than Ryse?? I think you need to see the game
Ryse so far ..... Best next gen graphics to date. IMO It really does have that CGI look like @heman762 said.
Ryse played fairly poorly at first (I heard the patches the framerate issues). It was also released last year. Killzone SF looked amazing and had a lot more going on than Ryse. I'd put Killzone above Ryse when it comes to taking all aspects into the game (environments, particle effects, lighting, character models, draw distance, etc). I'd put Infamous in this list for sure (even though the car graphics weren't the greatest). The lighting, draw distance, buildings, environmental effects, and characters were great. Ryse had really great looking character models with high polygon counts. Drive Club Forza Horizon 2 Infamous GTA 5 (I was suprised at how much better this game looked than GTA 5 on PS3/360). The Last of Us (could have looked better honestly... I was expecting more of a GTA5 remaster with even great graphical fidelity (I will admit I was expecting too much)). I haven't played AC but heard about the poor optimization. The game has to play well...it just can't look pretty.
I'm surprised infamous second son is not on that list. Oh well
They probably forgot about it. I was surprised it was the first game I mentionwd to someone when they asked me what exclusives PS4 released this year, :P
Destiny? FH2? Haha what a joke... FH2 direct feed gameplay looks like last gen FM3 https://gfycat.com/Elaborat... Seriously jokes aside, Xbox fans need to check their eyes http://cdn4.dualshockers.co... http://cdn4.dualshockers.co... http://cdn3.dualshockers.co... http://cdn4.dualshockers.co...
"FH2 direct feed gameplay looks like last gen FM3" Really? So Xbox 360 can run this? Skybox, map size, textures, and details? At 1080P. http://static1.gamespot.com... http://www.hobbyconsolas.co... http://cdn.arstechnica.net/... http://s.pro-gmedia.com/vid... http://www.gamespot.com/api...
It's a decent looking game. But engine wise is not yet up there with the best. Look at the 3rd link down, look at the back left of the main car. Ouch. Someone's been at it with a saw.
Forza HZ 2 http://i98.photobucket.com/... http://i98.photobucket.com/... http://i98.photobucket.com/... Driveclub http://i98.photobucket.com/... http://i98.photobucket.com/... http://i98.photobucket.com/...
So you mean that 360 games look better than ps4 games. Lol
Driveclub is way better in terms of graphics/atmosphere than Forza Horizon 2 and probably other games on that lists'.
Im fed up of this drive club forza situation one is open world the other is a circuit racer its like compairing battlefield against cod thay are diffrent games for instance cod is a corridor shooter were battlefield is more open all are good games yes the graphics look good but that dont make it a great game i bet most people on here havent even played half of these games but slate them anyway coz thay are fan boys
Is your period button broke?
Your argument is flawed as Battlefield, the open world shooter is better looking than COD, a more linear experience. Ultimately you can make excuses but the fact remains that DriveClub is a nicer looking game, not that it matters, both a fine racing games.
Hahaha. Forza Horizon 2 better looking than DriveClub? Clearly the person that put this list together is either a xbox fancy or they were smoking something.
"Please note that the games on the list are in no order."
Not 1 Wii U game in that list? Interesting. No, let me rephrase that...not 1 Wii U game in that list? Embarrassing, nearsighted and ignorant.
ikr wtf!? Mario Kart 8, Smash, and Bayonetta 2 look incredible. Maybe because none of them are "realistic"-looking.
Maybe because all those games look better than any wii u game to HIM? So because he doesn't think like you do he is Ignorant and nearsighted
FH2? Really? A cross gen game over the INCREDIBLE looking Infamous Second Son? A man doesn't see how that works.
Forza higher than Driveclub lol k
Destiny is certainly not in my top 10. I wouldn't have put it would on the the list.
I assume Ryse is on this list because of the PC release. Otherwise, since it released on the X1 last year it shouldn't be listed.
The list is a joke lol. Forza Horizon 2 @ #2 but DC @ # 7? WTF. We're talking about visuals, right?
I really like DAI however IMO the visual quality is not consistent. Some things look awesome while others not so much. I don't really have any opinions on graphics kings this year. I did not play really any of the so called best lookers.
Quite a poor list in my opinion with no appreciation seemingly given to art design and creativity. The artstyle in the likes of Beyonetta 2 and MarioCart8 and most other Ninty first party games makes them very striking in my opinion. Also any list that doesnt contain Infamous is clearly lacking, in my opinion that game was one of the most striking I have played. It was supurb on a technical level and also had nice art direction too.
wait infamous isn't on this list? WTF
Killzone SF should be on the list
