Adam Sessler announces the winner for Best Graphics from G-Phoria 2008.
How could Uncharted not be nominated?
What the hell is an Uncharted?
Uncharted is mighty impressive in the graphics department. I too must question its lack of nomination. *Is gfx whor3*
Uncharted is ok. It's nothing to brag about. It has terrible tearing issues and an inconsistent frame rate. It does nothing that hasn't been done before it. It's only impressive to PS3 fanboys because they don't know any better. Bioshock looks better and soon, PS3 owners will get to see for themselves.
I want to see the same replys from the ps3 fanboys as they was stating in the other article where the 360 won best console.
... Uncharted is definitely something to brag about, it may have slight screen tear issues, but its not really an issue, and the frame rate is perfectly consistant, I know this because im just after completing it twice(for Trophies, got Platinum XD) so its all fresh in my head. And why did you have to mention something about being a fanboy!?
Not sure which version of Uncharted you've been playing but I've been trophy whorin' it up the past couple days and didn't notice a single tear or frame rate drop.
lol...i know a lie, when i see one. Its time for you to play the first level again, or upgrade to an hdtv.
Dannagar is just a brainless Xbot that will make up crap just to bash PS3. Btw the only time I ever noticed screen-tearing in Uncharted was when I payed very close attention. It was not actually a big deal.
I mention PS3 Fanboys simply because PS3 users (on N4G) talk about it constantly as though it's some kind of achievement or visual leap forward. It has nice lighting, bump mapping and normal mapping but so do many games. For me, I noticed significant tearing and frame rate issues. I'm not saying it's a bad game. It's great but it's nothing to brag about to me. I assume my version is the same as yours. @Breakfast, My HD LCD Samsung is new. It's one of those Automotion Plus 120HZ Flat screens that does 1080p with a 25,000 contrast ratio. @LarVanian I'm a PS3 user too. You can send me a friend invite over PSN. I just call it as I see it. I'm not going to give credit unless it's due.
Visual leap... well yes, pretty much, last year anyway, although as of now the high mark resides with MGS4, but Uncharted may come 2nd or 3rd on par with Bioshock, easily. On consoles anyway
Let's be honest, Uncharted definitely had tearing issues and occasional dips in frame rate (not enough to hurt the action, mind you, but enough to notice that things didn't feel 100% fluid). I would easily rank MGS4 and Ratchet higher than Uncharted graphically. However, I did love the lush colors that Uncharted used, unlike so many other drab games that are out there today *cough* Gears *cough*. Anyways, the graphics whore in me can't wait for KZ2.
I actually think that Assassins Creed or COD 4 have some of the best visuals this Generation (Along with Bioshock). To me, MGS4 has an impressive Resolutions with a beautiful frame rate (it's not 60 fps, probably 40-50fps) but it wasn't my kind of game.
I honestly think that the only thing impressive about Call of Duty 4's graphics are its lighting. Doesn't mean I don't love the game, but it just didn't 'wow' me like BioShock, Uncharted or MGS4 did (haven't played Crysis, but I know it probably should have won, saw it at my school science fair).
But no fvcking way did MGS4 look better than Crysis. No fvcking way. MGS4 looked mediocre. Almost every game this gen looks like a fvcking acid trip in a crayola factory compared to MGS4. INCLUDING Gears of War and that's saying a lot. If any other game had the graphics and art MGS4 had, nobody would think the graphics were even ok. Be perfectly honest with yourselves. Uncharted looked better (sans technical issues), bioshock looked better, heavenly sword looked better (aside from a state that I will call "redonkubloom"). The story may have been the best thing you've ever seen/read/heard, but the graphics are really nothing special.
I guess Uncharted is overlooked and underated. I recently replayed it and its still amazing. Towards the end theres a part in there thats in the same setting as cod4. An on a ship level I remember cod4's on the ship level too. It looks like crap compared to Uncharted's. Cod4 had some serious jaggies, and crysis has 10x worse screen tearing and frame rate issues then Uncharted. MGS4 has dynamic textures on snake that blend to his surroundings which was just plain bad as$. Uncharted's character wet maps where amazing. The rocks in slick surfaces in uncharted the amount of poly's in the Character and level design was crazy in both those games. The draw distance in Uncharted was impressive as well. I remember going through some of the later levels in uncharted and knowing that this game is as amazing for the PS3 as God of War 2 was for PS2. Bioshock was great too played it on PC back when it came out. It had some moments where I was in awe too , like when I grabed the shotgun and the room went dark and slicers I think they was called where coming out the woodworks. Watching the ice melt after using the fire on it to get to the room in which the shoty was in. Great stuff. Beauty's and the Beast's Crysis did not have them... They where a sight to see. MGS4 has so many moments that just leave you in awe as I recall. Crysis was pretty amazing technically like the engine was great its capable yet it was not fully applied to bring a graphical experience that sucked you in and kept you up all night to finish the SP. In my experience.
Maybe because this is G-Phoria '08 and Uncharted came out in '07?
Those are the best looking dolls I've ever seen
lol. no 360 exclusives.
http://www.n4g.com/NewsPend... There it is, LMAO
LOL! pwned! Funny how you would miss GOTY! =) You should write that in your notebook.
mgs4 looks amazing
had the best graphics so far this generation.
as soon as I seen this posted here I knew it was posted because a PS3 game won the award, otherwise it probably wouldn't have been posted, awesome work PS3G. lolz! Where are the rest of the awards? Or was this the only one at GPhoria?
are defective it seems o you don't know where to look. http://www.n4g.com/News-181... All the other categories have been posted. You just have to look better an try not to sound too stupid.
I mean seriously people. Halo 3 didnt deserve GOTY etc. but we need to cross the steet both ways you cant have it all. One being its bias and then not make up your mind FAN cotes are alway s looked at in a bad light there dumb and its not videogames fan votes have always been biased and taken not so seriously.
and the best of ps3 exclusive is yet to come... can't wait for ps3 2009 nine lineup, set to rise the bar.
Uncharted Drakes Fortune?
no one bought it, so I'd say still on store shelves.
@darthcruz, Watch out there, buddy! Poor Droid will go to his mommy and cry what you said about him. He may be a 360 fanboy but have patience with a 10 year old kid, or a basement dwelling adult guy with the mind of a 10 year old. Either way, it's not good to argue with a 10 year old.
Dumb n00bs. I'm getting the MGS sku next month along with Unfarted. Lucky for me, there will be plenty of copies available. :) Unlike most PS3rd owners, I'll be buying one to play some games; not movies (well, I lied. some movies, but mostly games.)
I agree but Uncharted was a dead tie and wasn't nominated. This doesn't change the fact G4 is an irrelevant TV show and Euphoria one steaming pile of crap they couldn't get off the ground with a pile of money.
mgs4 is a phukn no-brainer! Why are games from 2007 soaking up all the votes?! there are actual 2008 games to contend with. That's dirty. Just put a rug over everything huh?
MGS4 and uncharted are two of the best looking console games to date.. Nothing can compare to these two..
u droids are lucky Gears 2 wasn't counted in this contest, heck, or Gears 1 for that matter.
You brought up UTIII with extra lighting (Aka Gears of war 1.5) how sad.
It's been bad for the Droids since E3, asses hurt from pulling the 360 controller out. Now they have to turn around and pull it out again for the next 6 months, starting with Too Human and ending with holiday shopping season pwnage. Olympics comming up, that bronze medel looks good around your droids necks... get used to it... nevermind you can't get used to it, which is why to whine about it daily on the internet.
Crysis > Uncharted > GT5P > MGS4 IMO
because a 2006 title has the best graphics to date/
MGS4 deserves it, it may not be the "best" looking. But it's better than most other games and has a lot going on at once in addition to having some of the best animation ever in any game.
i didnt think the graphics weren't that great.....uncharted look way better than MGS4...i dont have a high end Comp....but im pretty sure Cyris looks better than MGS4...and they mentioned online play.....im pretty sure COD stomp MGS4 into the pavement
nobody here is bragging about gears of war 1 looking better than uncharted or msg4.
MGS4 is gorgeous and deserves the award. With 4 years dev time and a gigantic budget and with the talented Kojima productions at the helm it should be. Gears is still gorgeous it is just getting long in the tooth.
Gears is very much "shock and awe". The game looks nice, but the engine doesn't really do a lot. For instance, it's probably about par with Uncharted in terms of "looks" and detail, but Uncharted's engine does a lot more - areas are bigger, colours are more vibrant, animation is nicer and lighting is better, for example. Even things like water are better in Uncharted. There's a whole rain section in both Gears and Uncharted and in Gears, the characters don't appear wet at all, while in Uncharted, Drake gets wet depending on how deep the water is. This is the same deal with Metal Gear Solid 4, the engine does a lot of small things flawlessly which just bring everything together so nicely, which a lot of people don't notice (see: dust clouds in MGS4 to see what I mean). Not to take away from Gears, it's still as stunning as it was when it was released, but the sequel has a lot to live up to.
Well Gears of War, Marcus Fenix is only about 15,000 polygons. Solid Snake's Left buttcheek probably has more polygons. Anybody, who's ever played MGS4 knows that Act 3 has some of the most amazing graphics ever seen on a console.
lol @ mistertwoturbo
But this is user picked, so oh well. BTW, MGS4 is my favorite game this generation.
i have high spec computer and i've played Crysis. This montion blur + dx 10 shaders it's all about. Game is boring as other parts as weapons and characters. Oh and lots lots lots of polygons :) I didn't have any "WOw" factor or "this looks amazing !" playin' Crysis (only "looks nice"). When I Played Uncharted there were lots of WoWs and Ohhss. 1. First Level This Fluid ultra blue water just ohhh.. 2. Nathan Hair almost real just u can touch it. 3. Streams in jungle.. amazing. and mirrored sky in it .. ohh 4. sinken city level is just OMFG. BEST LEVEL GRAPHIC EVER EVER EVER !!! Super SHARP textures on walls, MGS just shows "something" not "nothin" like Crysis. Yes Jungle lots of jungle a lot alot of jungle a lotttt of jungle spaceship jungle ride (only wow factor riding downhill in hummer with this treees and lightover them them) (Crysis in short). In short WOW factor is generated by something not tech side of graphic. and thats like MGS is showing something and looks omG ! But Uncharted has Tech and things :) AND GT5 JUST MAKE HOLES OF YOUR EYES :D GT5( almost everything )>Uncharted (boat ride)>Crysis (nice views and jungle nothing more :/, but got the pottencial>MGS(look at the triumph bike, ipod, box with logo "No PLace For Hideo", NAomi face, many things but there are some crapy textures>COD4(bad tech good "something">Biosh ock( feelling of lost city in graphic on every corner)>Heavenly Sword (last battle is just freaking huge with houndrets of soldiers flying in every directions) till today, nothing more nothing less. UT3 Geow ? err sory i don't like plastic gaming (but i like UT3 too in therm of gameplay). UE3 games looks the same (bioshock is something more and don't look like ue3 engine at all) that's all i have to say about techs and "things"
The right game won.
This is kinda off topic, but was the story in Uncharted good? I haven't picked it up yet, but I always hear people raving about it.
Very good. As for MGS4 best graphics. No question about it.
Great Choice and well deserved. MGS4 best game this gen hands down.
