Looking back at this year, there have been some awesome games to choose from. We thought we'd put together a top 5 list of titles that have not only had amazing game play but have also shown off HD gaming at its finest.
The top HD viewing game is on the 360. ha...."The Power of the Cell" (trademark) Just as big of a lie, as MS saying their is no hardware problems. :)
Microsoft wasn't lying! They were just talking about the competition, as always. :)
BIG BOSS respectfully disagrees. CQC snaps the necks of sackboy, nico Belic, guy with chainsaw.
Gears of War 2 does have the best graphics on a console this year. I won't lie to you. Sony needs to step up their game. I don't suppose you've seen anything on this game...oh...what was it called? I always forget when I need to think of it...OH! It was Killing Zones 2 or something? Maybe it was Large Rain...or...Overweight Rain... ...I can't seem to recall. *smirk*
Watch some fanboy will come out with "Gears2 isnt even HD! It's missing two lines of pixels blah blah blah". I bet there will be an article out there soon. Kids these days...
I came here to be blown away with games that are running in 1920X1080. Call me back when you will write an article about true HD games. Most of those games do not even run in 1280X720. Yes, they all look great, graphic wise, but just use the title: "Best graphics", not "top HD games". And no, I'm not nitpicking on one or two lines missing. 720p is great, even if there's a few line missing... But TOP HD should mean, more pixels, not just pretty graphics.
...so it fails imo.
GTA IV HD??LMFAO ,Can you say this Article is a JOKE!!! Everyone disregard this article.. Last I check ,according to Pixel counter experts .. GTA 4 is upscaled and looks blurry and crappy !!! Cough........... a few other games can be said the same of on 360 including ,gears 2!!!! This Article is Void!!!
Just because some stupid fanboy says Gears 2 is the best looking game this generation, doesn't make it true. Anybody who thinks Gears 2 is better looking than mgs4, little big planet, and GTaIv is either a huge fanboy or a huge addict. :where's uncharted, gta prolouge, ratchet and clank,mirror's edge, bioshock, call of duty 4, or mass effect, those are all better looking than fable 2 or Gears 2.
Where have the bubbles gone Breakfast?? Seriously is there anyone here who thinks Fable 2 has better graphics than Valkeria Chronicles? I mean put your fanboyism aside and really look at the 2 games. Should anyone take a list seriously that has GTA4 on it, I love the game but come on the cut scenes are nothing to write home about+ terrible clipping, tearing etc.? I don't like MGS4 but even I would have to put that game in the top 2 or 3 as far as graphics. Here I made a real list! 1. Gears 2 (Tossup, but I will go with it, for now) 2. MGS4 3. Valkeria Chronicles 4. GT5 Pro-log 5. COD4 6. Drakes
See what did i tell ya? hehehehh... see what i did there? Is MGS4 native 1080p? I'm pretty sure it isnt but it sure is purrty!
You know these people don't have a clue when you see GTA4 the second
all i know is Metal Gear Solid 4 is #1. you can grade the rest however you please. Play Beyond Not Behind
MGS4 is sub HD, so unfortunately it didn't make the cut. I know, I know. About all you can do is cry:)
sub HD, its true, accept it KID!! how can you give first place to a HD game thats SUB HD?
The best game this year is Little Big Planet. There's just nothing else like it out there. Gears of War 2, been there and done that many times.
one bubble? seems like you must have upset the SDF. even though I disagree, bubble for you.
LBP, MGS4, and Gears 2 are all extremely well polished and solid visual showcases. I'd give it to Gears for environemnts, and MGS4 for character models. Fable 2 and GTA4 are glitch city. I wouldn't really rank either one up there, despite GTA's technical achievements. It lacks polish.
If you have a gear 2 in #1 spot, you sure a MS Fanboy, I love Gear 1 much more than Gear 2. How can they rate game that have same animation as the first one, and cut out tree on the back ground #1. They are not detail at all. If you Gear 2 is the #1, then this year is a very very bad year for game industry. Gear 1 Rules !!! :D
Gears 2 is a beautiful game, but Crysis: Warhead still gets best graphics. Even the BETA of Killzone 2 looks better than Crysis though. PC...watch your back.
Im sorry GEOW2 has COD4 graphics.. MGS4 is far and ahead of all those titles
COD4 graphics? Don't you people like COD4? Anyway, Gears2 slaughters everything its path. With a chainsaw. Snake can go hide in a barrel of Drebin's monkeys, bothering Otacon every 2 minutes for tech support for all I care. And being all gay manly. (hahahaha, that made me lol)
What are you talking about? This is about HD and Graphics.. Not about what weapons are in the game.. Gears2 graphics arent jaw dropping.. Plain and simple.. Nothing that I saw in that game was spectacular.. It looked like COD4 to me.. MGS4 Graphics were amazing.. You also explained why Gears is soo popular.. All it is, Is blood and gore.. Gameplay is boring and slow.. If it wasnt for the blood and gore.. It would be an average TPS at best..
Maybe it's just your preference, since nothing you said is true. Gears2 is the pinnacle of HD gaming in 2008. Who knows what's in store for 2009. By your logic, Halo3 is a better game than Gears 2 AND MGS4, since it's a very loosely rated M game. Not much blood and gore there, partner! plus MGS4 doesn't meet the requirements to be classified an HD game. it falls short a few thousand pixels...such is the case with an overhyped overpriced $600 abortion.
If your going by Pixels then.. WIPEOUT HD.. Blows everything out of the water.. UnCharted looks better Gears 2.. You can say "You Havent played Gears2" blah blah.. But in fact I have.. The graphics were good dont get me wrong.. But 1 on this list.. No.. The graphics werent great by any means.. by the way your talking its all about pixels.. So then WipeOut should be 1.. since its 1080p ..
I'm sorry ApocalyPS3 but MGS4 looks incredible on an HDTV. That should have gotten the number one spot, not Gears 2. Gears should have been second.
Gears2 is REALLY awesome. It deserves the top spot. This is the HD gaming era...Gears 2 fulfills the prophecy. Clicking disagree will automatically donate 10 cents to those poor PS3 owners who lay awake at night crying over their purchase of a PS3. Please, make the change.
...but we already have an incredible game with no multi-player...it's called Uncharted. In my opinion, Uncharted was much better also. The replay value is REALLY high also. We have R2 to keep us busy online. We have LBP to give us freedom and make us feel good about life. We have MGS4 because...well...because we can... We have Gran Turismo: Prologue...because it looks better than any other console game. We don't need Gears 2. YOU need Gears 2. I loved Gears 2, but it wouldn't be a purchase for me. There's no replay value whatsoever.
coz you couldn't do one wave of Horde on easy *parp*
...it's hard to surgically direct my insults toward JUST the PS3 fanboys who persist to give x360 fanboys sh*t for liking their console, and not those PS3 fans who are decent. But you PS3 fans are all gamers, like us too. If you're not a fanboy, my above comment is NOT toward you. If you disagreed not because of fanboyism, my above comment is NOT toward you.
so shut up
unreal engine sucks.
Are you kidding me? GTA4 is ugly as hell! Where are Gran Turismo 5: Prologue and WipEout HD?
GT5: Prologue has the best graphics I've ever seen. It's more realistic than any other sim game.
That list is perfect.... except nothings in the right order. 1. MGS4 2. Gears of War 2 3. GTA IV 4. LittleBigPlanet 5. Fable II The current buzz with Gears of War 2 is the only reason they put it at the top, MGS4 is totally game of the year.
MGS4 was so 2008. It's 5769, by Jewish calendar, so MGS4 didn't make the cut sorry;)
you really believe MGS4 has better graphics than gears 2? are you smoking crack or what? Gears definitely deserves the top spot, and GTA4 does not deserve the second spot. That should go to banjo....... j/k, it should go to MGS4
"you really believe MGS4 has better graphics than gears 2? are you smoking crack or what? Gears definitely deserves the top spot, and GTA4 does not deserve the second spot. That should go to banjo....... j/k, it should go to MGS4" I suggest that you go play MGS4 again, or go to the eye doctor and get you eyes checked. MGS4 did not just only had a amazing storyline, but its graphics are Top Notch. Not to mention its animation system is amazing as well. BTW Although GT5p has amazing graphics, it cant be on this list because its not a full game.
I can't understand how people say MGS4 looks better than GEOW2... sub HD vs Real HD..? blurry textures vs crips and detail good character modles vs better... GeOW2 >>> MGS4 any day, any time...hey, that's why its #1 :)
SHE LOVES IT!
And I don't understand how in the blue hell could anyone say Gears 2 looks better than MGS4. MGS4 blows Gears 2 out of the water by default.
That is what your sony loving ass says but people listen to the experts the experts who test the games and play them. and will provide you with hours of entertainment was said about gears 2 and I don't believe people would put that many hours in MGS4 unless that is the only game they had on ps3...lol
Lol, experts? I *have* played MGS4 and it's an amazing game. The graphics are INSANE. Get over yourself. That's my opinion.
Fable 2 should be replaced with Fallout 3.
5)Gears of War 2 4)Little Big Planet 3)Grand Turismo Prologue 2)Metal Gear Solid 4 1)Wipeout HD
Hi-Def on the XBox360 was disable over here in Australia so I really could'nt enjoy it's benefit when playing games like Gears 2 which is simply awesome and other 360 titles, but on my PS3 and especially playing GranTurismo 5: Prologue it is just the best that I have seen and experienced so far on my Full-HD screen... have played the demo version of Mirror's Edge and am about to try LittleBigPlanet, thought they were very good HD-games.
You 360 retards need to wake up and smell the coffee. Unreal Engine does NOT impress anyone anymore. Review media is just to pvssy to give gears of bore anything below 9. It's same as first one. If that was Ps3 franchise you can bet your 4ss they would have give it 7 or 8s. Money well spent by scumsoft. (on media)
You're entitled to you beliefs, thetan. But it's not going to net you Katie Holmes any time soon;) PS3 should be OUTPERFORMING x360 is this area. This shouldn't even be a debate for a console that launched @ $600. And yet x360 consistently produces games that have generation leading visuals. All because of what? Because Microsoft didn't focus on bluray, bluetooth, memory stick readers, built in wi-fi or fancy named CPU and controllers. They focused on the games.
Wipeout HD says Hi!
Gears 2 graphically is good. But not that good. Some sections look nice. Underground etc. It's a good game. I have LBP and this is no fanboy comment, it seriously needs to be played by people. Even if it's not your type of game. Fable 2 is not my type of game. Neither is fallout 3. Neither was oblivion. GT5P - I love the graphics, But at the end of the day it's the handling of the cars, real world physics. Banjo is not my cup of tea sts. I would prefer rare to remake diddy kong racing:) I'd like to see waveraceps3 style. Damm that would look good.
I'm sorry but Fable II does not look good in HD. It has appealing art direction but in general has poor textures, and low poly NPCs and enemies. I am not saying the game doesn't have a unique look and is non pleasing to the eyes...just not in an HD way:-p
Wipeout or MGS4 @ nr1. Be it SUB HD or not.
yeah wipEout is actually in true full HD and it shows.
Gran turismo 5 prologue was far and away the best hd graphics game this year
XBOX 360 doesnt have true HD... its runs native HD. So in my opinion no games on xbox360 are truly HD...
wow...that was more n00b than i care to process. native HD or true HD...that's a tough call let me clarify your statement. to run at "native" HD means that the screen is most comfortable in HD. that is, it rolls out of the factory preset at its optimal resolution. to run in "true" HD is not an argument to "native" HD. also, true HD is a marketing term for 1080p, but both x360 and PS3 support 1080p, as well as other established HD resolutions. it can be said that a TV or console "natively" supports "true" HD, but they are not an argument to each other. it's "sub" HD (less than 720p) "standard" HD (720p, 1080i) or "true" HD (1080p). and MGS4 runs in sub HD, like many games this gen. on BOTH consoles, that was not an insult to PS3 gamers. it was just meant to show that the heading of the title should be taken by strictest definition: HD means HD.
No GT5P or Wipeout HD
No Gran turismo P? Epic fail.
I think they made this article just so they can put Gears of War2 on top of a list.
That wouldn't necessarily be my top 5 list.
Wipeout HD and Super Stardust HD anyone???
Unreal Tournament 3 if the Unreal engine is considered #1.
Number one guys, it's an opinion piece. It means nothing. There is nothing factual or scientific about his analysis. You may as well post your top 5, as it should hold the same weight as his opinion. If you noticed, he made sure there were equal exclusives for each console, and one multi, and had good things to say about all of them. Gears 2 looks and plays great. MGS4 looks and plays great. LBP looks great and is unlike anything else. GTA4 is the only one on the list I disagree with, and I haven't played Fable 2, so I have no opinion on it, though screenshots and videos have looked good.
IMO MGS4 was the best looking game released this year
MGS4 is the most amazing graphics I have ever experience because unlike Wipout HD which is undoubtably amazing, MGS4 does everything. Amazing textures, particle effects, color pallet and in 1080p, plus the one thing MGS$ has far an beyond every other game on the market is amazing design, things feel real... thanks to Kojima and Shinkawa
