How could Uncharted not be nominated?

toughNAME3780d ago

What the hell is an Uncharted?

INehalemEXI3780d ago (Edited 3780d ago )

Uncharted is mighty impressive in the graphics department. I too must question its lack of nomination.

*Is gfx whor3*

Dannagar3780d ago (Edited 3780d ago )

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.

Tarasque3780d ago

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.

Razmossis3780d ago

... 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!?

Megaton3780d ago

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.

LarVanian3780d ago (Edited 3780d ago )

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.

Dannagar3780d ago (Edited 3780d ago )

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.

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.

Razmossis3780d ago

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

Soren the Cat3780d ago (Edited 3780d ago )

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.

Dannagar3780d ago

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.

HeroOfCows3780d ago

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).

The Lazy One3780d ago

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.

INehalemEXI3780d ago (Edited 3780d ago )

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.

mfwahwah3780d ago

Maybe because this is G-Phoria '08 and Uncharted came out in '07?

Harry1903780d ago

BlackTar3780d ago

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.
