Uncharted 2 and GoW III are the best looking games ever and two of the best games of this generation.

Man no matter what platform the Orange Box was on, it was a hell of a value... Im still thinkin Valve was tripping when they released it.

Phantom disagree from a hater who doesnt know the true value of gaming :/ poor soul

orange box has no superb graphics compared to other ps3 games

the trees didn't move, the grass was damn ugly, low amount of polygons(=blocky)

but the actors and NPC's were all of legal age, which is a plus, we can't give gamers the chanche to virtually molest kids


and you embody the perfect sex offender, please take a seat

i didn't say a word about the orange box gameplay, i was talking about graphics
theorangebox: great gameplay, drap graphics

You, sir, embody the perfect Sony fanboy. With all the focus on graphics, you've forgotten that games are meant to be fun. Shame on you. And pity.

I'm sick of when people like yourself who go into discussions about graphics and start criticizing people for discussing graphics.

Edit: Because we're discussing graphics in a graphics discussion, you're going to get all over us for not using the word "fun"? GTFO.
Go here instead: http://n4g.com/news/584228/...
It's not about graphics, so GASP, people won't be talking about it as much.

@Anomen Since your in the business of correcting someones sentence by repeating it, but starting with IMO, I hope you do it to pro 360 statements as well, as that would just seem biased against the PS3. I don't think this is the way you wish to be portrayed ;) Can't stand stealth trolling.

GOW3 should be in the list as well.

Without question GOW3 should be on that list.
How do you put Orange Box and Oblivion on a list with superb graphics when you have so many great PS3 exclusives to choose from?

@Beware Oblivion
"Most multiplats are better than PS3 exclusives anyway"

What world are you living in? There are a number of incredible multiplatform games, but none of those beat exclusives. You get the times to fine-tune a game for a specific platform with exclusives. Do you have any idea how much praise Uncharted 2 got? And MGS4? Now, they're making a hack-and-slash out of a wonderful franchise due to it becoming multiplatform.

Also, saying that Half-Life 2 is the best FPS ever is not a fact. I have no doubt it probably is, as I'm playing through it right now, but it was incredible for its time. Its time has now gone.

Have some knowledge about what you speak of.

Was I the only who thought that the Assassins Creed II PS3 version had really poor graphics? Loads of screen tearing, terrible textures and average facial animations.
APOFISBORICUA  +   1847d ago
and actually the PS3 has better lightning and doesnt have that much screentearing compared to the 360 version. Also 360 version is way to dark, thats why the textures seemed more detailed but comparing them side by side, are the same.

Thats why I always try to play the games myself, I dont trust what others said. Ive been surprised more than one time by how great a multiplatform game looked on one console compared to the other when the reviewers said they are identical. Im also been surprised to find how good some PS3 "bad" ports looks when you compare both games side by side. Yeah the same games reviewers give more time and are the stars of the monthly comparisons. So I have my opinions but I play the game first then talk. Try to do the same people...you would be amazed by the findings.

I own both (AC2), completed both and I agree with you.

Side by side comparisons done by sites are usually tweaked to their favor their personal bias. I have yet to see any game look on my displays the way they do in comparison articles.
MaximusPrime  +   1847d ago
yes playstaychun. you are the only one.
only on playstaychun  +   1847d ago
I said the "PS3 version" because that's the only version I have!! People dont seem clever enough to understand that I am only dissing the ACII graphics and not the PS3 itself. Fanboys need to grow up. If you guys can honestly tell me that ACII belongs in a list of top10 graphics you played on the PS3, I am really surprised!!

jack_burt0n  +   1846d ago
I agree with you, i rented assasins creed 2 on ps3 and did not buy it because the screentearing was so bad.

BUT according to ubisoft brotherhood has been lead on ps3 and has no screentearing on ps3 supposedly. If you watch the latest multiplayer ps3 beta footage you can see it looks alot better.
APOFISBORICUA  +   1846d ago
you said PS3 version of AC2 as if you have played the 360 version 2. Second, compare AC2 to Uncharted 2 is unfair so I hope you are not comparing both. Uncharted 2 is the best graphical showcase on any CONSOLE and the only game that comes close is GOD OF WAR 3 and KILLZONE 2.

There are some amazing looking multiplatform games like AC2 and Red DEad ( specially the 360 version). So im not saying that it looks bad but when you compare multiplatform games with PS3 exclusives you are always going to find flaws. THe most notable to me is animation and lightning.

So Assasins Creed 2 may not belong to the list even if its art style IS better than most multiplatform games but you didnt explain it first and we asume you were talking comparing it to the XBOX 360 version. The funny thing is that you are rigth AC2 on the xbox 360 is one of the best looking games on the console, on the PS3... there are better looking games!!

boodybandit  +   1846d ago
"The funny thing is that you are right AC2 on the xbox 360 is one of the best looking games on the console, on the PS3... there are better looking games!!"

The truth is a hard pill to swallow. Why else do you think graphics only matter when it comes to multiplatform comparison articles but not exclusives? When it's exclusive it was never about graphics but only gameplay. You can't win on this site by using common sense, logic or telling the flat out truth. It's us vs them mentality here! ;)

The funniest part is when they turn on their own and eat their young like cannibals when their opinions vary.

COD 4, RDR, The Orange Box, and Oblivion shouldn't be there IMO, at least as Superb graphics. (Specially when they are a technical mess on the PS3).. They are great games though!

I would put, LBP, Valkirya Chronicles (although is art style), Heavenly Sword, Dead Space.. I mean there are many more with better graphics than those I mentioned above.

EDIT: Yeah, having a top 10 list about graphics and not inculde GOW 3 is lame!
Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm too, has great art style and animations.

SaberEdge  +   1846d ago
I agree with you that Dead Space belongs there more than those other games. Dead Space on the PS3 was actually quite good. I have played and beat both the 360 version and the PS3 version of Dead Space and they are pretty close. I wish more developers would do whatever it takes to get the PS3 versions up to where they should be.

yeah i love uncharted 2, actually i need to give that another play.
god of war 3 was great, but some areas really seemed they could do with some extra love, some of the character models were plastic and nasty, and some of the backgrounds were a bit bland, but otherwise it was awesome.
heavily sword...uh nope.

i would say the best on ps3 are

uncharted 2
killzone 2

"10 Best PS3 Games with Superb Graphics"

the guy talk about graphics, and xfanboyz says "you embody the perfect sony fanboyz talking about graphics" lol (they can't talk about graphics since 2007, it's now becoming a bad word :))

and lol@ "There is this thing call a PC that wants to have a word with you PS3 graphics whores. PC does everything the PS3 and Xbox 360 have better"

only a xboy fanboyz can write that kind of stupid statement (trying to make ps3 sounds like xbox :)), by the way, graphics are not only a question of resolution, my high end pc don't have any god of war 3 or uncharted games with that kind of graphics, and even where the (best) pc can demonstrate their power, with FPS, on a tv, it's not night and day with killzone for example.

SaberEdge  +   1846d ago
God of War 3 blew my socks off and some parts I might even have to say were more impressive than anything I saw in Uncharted 2. On the other hand, Uncharted 2 has a consistently high quality of graphics throughout the whole game. God of War 3 had some parts that weren't that good. Uncharted 2 wins in my mind simply because it looks amazing pretty much the whole time. I have never seen a more consistent game.

chrisgay  +   1847d ago
Bioshock needs to be in there- maybe not the best graphics from a technical standpoint, but for me, far and away the most thoughtfully designed game world- incredible art direction.

Why? Are you so insecure that you'd compare PC to console? We get it. PC has better graphics than consoles but you'd be a fool to say games like Uncharted 2, Killzone 2 and GOWIII aren't a treat for the eyes. This is what I hate about you PC elitists. You seem to think anything that's not PC is irrelevant. Funny, because I get much more enjoyment out of my PS3/Wii/DS and PSP than I ever will out of a PC.

Nice stealth edit there. PC is not the best. At least not in the eyes of many. That is subjective. The only thing you have over consoles is specs. Games wise , in my opinion and millions of others , PC has nothing on consoles in terms of the sheer variety. PC doesn't have a top quality PC only fighting game, or JRPG, or Action/Adventure or Platformer this generation. The irony in your post is also delicious.
' Just enjoy playing games and stop looking retarded.' <<<< You look retarded, coming into a thread that has nothing to do with PC and defending it like it's your mother that someone just insulted and then going onto say "just enjoy playing games". So why are you not playing your precious PC games with 60fps in 1080p? Gtfo and do just that lol No one cares about you whiney PC elitists who seem to be constantly butthurt at the world like it raped you as a child.

@below. Who's bragging about Blu-Ray? PS3 is the only console that does Blu-Ray anyway. No PS3 fanboy or 360 fanboy is stupid enough to compare to PC which is why they only compare across the 3 competing consoles. No one made it a contest. Did you even read the article. It's just stating top 10 games on the PS3 with great graphics on the system. No one is comparing it to the 360 or the Wii. Grow up for goodness sake. You're defending something that no one insulted in the first place. If it bothers you so much right a blog instead of throwing it out there into an unrelated article. Jesus

Actually I'm an Xbox 360 user, people just look like idiots bragging about something when they don't have the best. Like I said, have fun and stop bragging. You don't do graphics best, you're not the only thing to do BluRay, you're not the only thing to do HD, you're not the only thing to do 3D, your not the only thing to do motion control, just have fun doing it anyways. Everything doesn't have to be a contest and if it was you're losing. You seem very insecure.

We have some peculiar choices in there. I'll see if I can repair this thing.

Subtract: Orange Box, Oblivion, Fallout 3, Modern Warfare 2

Add: God of War III, MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, Gran Turismo 5: Prologue, and WipEout HD. Ratchet and Clank: ACiT, Prince of Persia, Batman: Arkham Asylum, LittleBigPlanet, and Dead Space can serve as alternates if you disagree with any of my choices.

Am just playing through Uncharted 2, for the 6th time, and I'm still blown away by how good the graphics are. Not just technically but artistically as well which is something you don't get in games much these days so I would deffo put Uncharted 2 top of this list with Heavy Rain second and God Of War 3 third. Still though, Assassins Creed 2 number one... amazing game but if the article was just talking about graphics WTF.
