IGN: The Greatest Graphics of All Time Pt 2

As IGN said in part one, the visuals on a game console are like fine wine – they mature with age. They are looking back through the last few generations of consoles for the leading graphical lights on each system: the games that made the biggest impact or the biggest influence with their visual style. IGN has done PlayStation, Saturn and N64, and now they are moving on to Dreamcast, PS2, Xbox and GameCube.

Real good choices. Lol at south park, i mean the show has crappy graphics. All they were doing was make the game models look like the show.

But real good choices though

I liked Chef's Love Shack!

Not sure if the Worst PS2 game is agreeable, White Van Racer is pretty hard to beat.

I was banging on Okami being PS2's "Serving A Creative Vision". But Shadow of the Colossus not a bad choice at all.

Looking at the scores for the good old classics and seeing the 9s and 10s made feel like we are really throwing 9s on not so worthy games this gen !!?

I'd say this list is fairly accurate with the PS2, Xbox, and dreamcast. But I believe Metroid Prime deserves a spot on the GCN list.

I completely agree, I'd have given it the greatest graphical leap because it came out before Resident Evil 4 and completely knocked my socks off. Although actually, I feel as though it could have easily earned most technical advancement also... certainly over Fzero.

Never had a Dreamcast, Original Xbox, or Gamecube so I can't relate to those games, but I definantly agree with the PS2 games on this list and the categories they are listed in.

The the first most memorable graphical jump in a PS2 game was definantly MGS2 for me, and I would also probably say that ICO, and Jak and Daxter were also, but I think MGS2 had the biggest leap early on in the PS2's lifecycle.

Later on in the PS2's lifecycle, Metal Gear Solid 3, Shadow of the Colossus and BLACK pushed the PS2 to a limit I had yet too see, and those games really wowed me on both a graphical and technical level.... and God of War 2 was just icing on the cake.

I remember when I popped in BLACK for my PS2 for the first time, I almost couldn't believe I was playing a PS2 game, lol.

I was going to say, where was Black on the list? That definitley was a breathtaking 6 hour run when I first played it! Plus it was for both PS2 and Xbox, they have room to at least mention it somewhere...

OOG3561d ago

black came in near/at the end... so didnt really make as big of an impact...
