Gametrailers continues their Game of the Year awards, next up, Best Graphics.
I'm yet to see one, i might be wrong, site to give any other game best graphics of the year. Naughty Dog truly out did themselves, well done
If any other game can get it, which is not exclusive to PS3, it's Modern Warfare 2, and even then it would show your bias way too much. It's really a competition between Killzone 2 and Uncharted 2 this year, which is an undeniable fact for the graphics.
Heh, Just kidding :P Uncharted 2 is breathtaking. I will never forget lighting up that blue flame in that cave (the "last resting spot of Marco Polo"), seeing the water slush around in a pool or puddle, or watching the fluid movements of Drake kicking ass. It's a well polished game, and the standard for (console) graphics has been raised by Naughty Dog. Killzone 2 was also impressive, but Uncharted 2 was much more diverse.
Where's that N4G user "Bubububut Teh Cell"? He hasn't shown is face in awhile :)
the best gfx my eyes has ever seen,the level of detail is unmatched never seen a game look this good or RUN this good well done naughty dog,uncharted 2 is the best ps3 game ever
what about arkhum asylum? I thought they did a great job, Especially consedring it was developed the unreal engine........... yikes
True, forgot about that, Arkham Asylum was very good looking, much better than MW2.
Arkham Asylum looked superb, but (perhaps) lacked visual diversity. I think the sheer scope and range of the locations in UNCHARTED 2 justifies the award.
The best graphics I have ever seen, no contest from anything else!
easily. best graphicals on a console to date tbh and actually a colourful game. kz2 had great graphics but was so dark and gloomy. UC2 really shined with a wide range of colourful environments
I think kz2 beats uncharted2 on a technical level though. Artistically uncharted2 is beautiful but I still think kz2 holds the best graphics on a console to date.
Different graphics for different purposes though. Uncharted 2 has more of a clean and detailed look while KZ2 has a lot of special effects. Both are still the best graphics on consoles to date. GoWIII will easily join that rank.
uncharted 2 is amazing, killzone 2 definitely comes in second place in my book. i can only imagine how good uncharted 3 will look
Naughty dog did one hell of a job!
for me it's a tie with KZ2: these 2 titles are in a league of their own. no-one else comes even close, it's embarrassing lazy coders: learn from the masters or you'll never get a $ from me
Uncharted 2 looked absolutely brilliant. Well deserved.
I might have to give this one to KZ2. I have both but KZ2 still astounds me when I put if off for awhile and go back to play it.
Uncharted 2 is GOTY
i lol this video...+ bubbles ;)
i give Uncharted 2 the win simply because of the sheer number of diverse environments in the game. Killzone 2 does some amazing things with lighting, post-processing effects and other atmospheric details (and textures), but they are still spread across an environment that, barring a view areas, share the same design aesthetic. each area in Uncharted 2 is unique and breathtaking. a well deserved award. i guess this is the year that the gaming media can't reasonably downplay or ignore the merits of Playstation 3 exclusives. for 3 years they've been pretending that games like Resistance 1 and 2, Motorstorm 1 and 2, Heavenly Sword, Folklore, Warhawk, Ratchet: TOD, Uncharted: DF, MGS4, LBP,etc, didn't exist, or are as good as they are. this year, however, there's no denying that games like Killzone 2, inFAMOUS, Ratchet, Demon's Souls, and Uncharted 2 really brought it in terms of game play and visuals. next year is looking even better. but then again, anyone who's been playing Playstation consoles since the beginning knows that Sony always kicks into high gear year 3, and doesn't stop till the generation is over. the PS1 and PS2 were sh*t on early on, but in the end, people consider them to be two of the best consoles of all time. if the first 3 years of software are any indication of where the PS3 is going, and looking at the upcoming titles for 2010, it looks like it's going down the same path, i don't see how anyone, when all is said and done, will not respect the PS3 as a quality multi-media/gaming platform.
yes ANY and more to come
UC2 over hype on the graphics man MGS4 look better than UC2 then goes gears of war for 360/PC and how about Modern Warfare 2 or KZ2 or how about Mass Effect 2.
........? What the? I know you're trying to communicate with us, but .....
I understand that some people's English aren't perfect because it may be their second language, but I don't understand retyping their own name in the comments section every single time.
heheHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA WHERE ARE THE XBOTS NOW? aren't they always the one comparing graphics and bragging about having the better pixels in multiplats?
Top 5 graphics in 2009 1. Uncharted 2 2. Killzone 2 3. COD: MW 2 4. Resident Evil 5 5. Batman AA
It's more like 1. Uncharted 2 2. Killzone 2. 3. Ratchet & Clank Future ACIT Poor R&C never gets the credit it deserves.
Ratchet and Clank Future gets dismissed because it's "kiddy graphics," but there is yet to be another game in the Pixar style that matches it in any way, shape, or form. some of the levels in A Crack in Time are just breathtaking. people this generation are obsessed with games looking "real," not quality art design. R&C Future has is incredible art design. personally, i think it blows away games like MW2 and Batman: AA based on art design and polish alone, and those games do indeed look great. as far as graphics this year, i'd go with: 1) Uncharted 2: Among Thieves 2) Killzone 2 3) Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time 4) inFAMOUS (the best looking open world game this generation so far) 5) Batman: Arkham Asylum (they did a great job making Unreal Engine 3 relevant for a time) honorable mentions would be: Modern Warfare 2 Assassin's Creed 2 Borderlands God of War Collection (it truly is amazing how good that game looks) Resident Evil 5 (great character models, and pretty solid environments)
So all those bleating 360 drones whinging about how it's the multiplatforms that prove a console's worth are, actually talking sh1te?? Who wudda thunk it?
