Morgan Webb announces the winner of G-Phoria '09 Best Graphics. Nominees include 'Resistance 2', 'Resident Evil 5', 'Fight Night Round 4', 'Killzone 2' and 'Street Fighter IV'.
Wait a minute wasn't Resistance 2 released in '08? Also I don't agree fully with that, allthough Resistance 2 was an improvement on the first it wasn't that much better graphically, Uncharted looks just as good if not better. Gears 2 is outstanding also.
Resistance FOM: http://simonrules.com/blog/... http://news.filefront.com/w... http://ps3media.ign.com/ps3... Resistance 2: http://jonnymeddy.files.wor... http://www.psu.com/media/re... http://www.play3-live.com/s... Massive jump in graphics compared to the first.
No surprise there.
what is surprising is what the other 59% of people who voted were thinking. Killzone 2 was and will be an epic classic remembered for years upon years.
WTF 2009 isn't even over yet.
ever noticed the 'car of the year' gets touted on adverts around march....now thats stranger. The only game i feel can beat killzone 2 is GT5 or Uncharted 2....take your pick. @MAR-TYR-DOM obviously one of the multiplatform games;)
nycredude G-Phoria isn't a yearly award show that always happens in the summer. So it takes into account 12 months worth of games, just not a calendar year.
By December, Uncharted 2 and GT5 will make it even harder to decide a winner... Next year, site's will release 'Best Graphics of 2009' articles dominated by PS3 exclusives and multi-plats (RE5+ Whatever lands late and is good looking)....
Correct me if I'm wrong but: A) 2009 is not over B) Resistance 2 was release in 2008 Right? In fact why is Resistance even up there? I own the game and there are plenty of games that released after it that have better graphics (LittleBigPlanet hell even inFamous)

Wow, fallout 3 must be really good o.O
I tried Fallout 3 for a long time, and let's just say I had more fun with battletoads. (opinion) But anyways... WHY IN THE **** IS GEARS UP THERE???? The multiplayer sucked and same with halo wars... :P
Of course XBox is the favorite system. Most gamers have XBox, but moreso G4 favor the XBox...they even apologize for it at the end of the show. LOL...the shmucks!
Is there a reason why the whole awards list werent posted? http://g4tv.com/gphoria2009...
next year: Uncharted 2 or GT5 prob GT5
Yeah i agree though. It will be GT as usual.
right w/e it is its for ps3 :)
i sense a flamewar
I sense a bot
i sense a retard
First, why is Resistance2 there: that game doesnt have awesome graphics and it didnt deserved to be part of Best Graphics.Second, I think FNR4 should have won 1st place.
so much wrongness in one comment
R2's graphics weren't that great. FNR4 above Killzone 2 though? What are you smoking? You should really try Killzone 2.
He should really try Killzone 2 on whatever he's smoking!
well, if you consider the fact that Resistance 2 had so much going on at the same time, I'd say it has some pretty amazing graphics. Sure, if you compare let's say, character models between FN4 and R2, FN wins hands down, however, when you look at the bigger picture, you'll see that while FN has 2 characters in a small arena while R2 has you fighting with 7 people online (in it's co-op mode) against dozens of nemies on screen at the same time, I'd say it balances out. Judging "graphics" by simply looking at how good it looks and overlooking the "how good it runs" and the "what is running" aspects is like saying that Half Life 2 looks better than Empires:Total War, which doesn't make any sense whatsoever.
That game looked really good, especially being a 1st person shooter. A FPS needs to have their graphics really tight because you have the ability to walk up close and look at the graphics; a 3rd person game like FN4 won't even get as close as you can get to an object in Resistance 2.
Wow, Fallout 3 won so many awards. Congrats to KillZone 2, though anybody could have seen that a mile away. And Congrats to all other games and their accolades. Cheers! :D
Why no 360 exclusives?
cuz is site is full of ps3fanboys.
wasn't gear of war 2 release in 2008??
it was in the list but Gears 2 graphics is dated. KZ2 smacks everyone graphics wise.
I agree... Gears 2 should have been on the list...much better graphics than R2... ...but it's still nowhere close to KZ2.
What a load! R2 is from 08 and the graphics were meh. How can you have best of 09 graphics when the bulk of games this year have yet to come out? Ugh, G4 you are so lame sometimes. Moving on..
As many have stated: They count games from August-August. NOT January-January. It's the same reason Halo 3 won GOTY last year, even though it was released in Sept. the following year.
voice acting...Fallout 3? am i the only one that saw some of this generation's most lifeless characters in that game?
I agree.Not to mention dozens of characters all shared the same voice.
If you noticed in Fallout 3, most of the characters sound the same. Find a male ghoul and compare it with another one. For some reason, they both sound the same.
Never played Fallout 3, but Bethesda is notorious for that.
I agree with Killzone2 being best graphics. Nothing right now, RIGHT NOW, comes close to the look of it. I think they do it like the last 6 months of one year and 6 months of the year it is. Im not sure. My only question is how come no 360 exclusive was on that list?
Curiously, Gears of War 2. I've always said that Gears 2 had awesome graphics, but most of the games on their list I've agreed with were superior; excluding Street Fighter IV. I thought Gears was MUCH better than SFIV; I don't even know why it is on the list when Gears of War 2 exists.
HALO WARS STAR OCEAN 4 TALES OF VESPERIA HALO ODST THE BEST GAMES.
lol this bot is in denial. Halo Wars?? Are you pucking kidding me?
The 360 does not have the graphical power to compete with the PS3. Killzone 2 was the obvious winner. If you disagree bots then tell what game (exclusive or multiplat) looks better than Uncharted or Killzone 2?
(looks at all 360 games) Uh.... What 360 exclusive has better technology/graphics than Uncharted & Killzone2? None at all.... I think you can add Gran Turismo's demo to that list too.
It's redundant. Rag doll Kung fu graphics. It's glitched, buggy & boring. Epic had to step thier game up & they just coasted. No beta. Just a ridiculous shooter for kids. With 3rd person shooters on p$3 raising the bar gears 2 really doesn't exist. MGO says hi Socom says hi Uncharted says hi These are games that push the envelope. Sorry silly rabbit 360 is for kids. The only reason fallout 3 & 360 got awards is because g4 had to give em something. They work for microsoft for gods sake. Anybody want to hear some LBP music?
I don't know. I have been playing Gears 2 quite a lot lately after that last update and I have not experienced any type of bug, yet. I also noticed that I rarely lag anymore and finding matches are pretty darn fast. I guess those people who experienced the worst of Gears 2 in the beginning did not want to play it anymore.... I still am, and it's F***ing amazing to tell you the truth.
well said Ram...that's why is called xplay
...have none of you ever seen an awards show before? Generally the deadline to be nominated is around the time of the show. Not every award show is in Jan/Feb like the Golden Globes/Oscars.
