2011 will be a great year for us gamers, especially for those that constantly crave for top-notch visuals. Games Aktuell lists 15 games that will blow you away visually in 2011 - check them out!
We are talking only about graphics... This isn't the only thing a game needs do have in order to be a great game.
Im thinking Last Guardian's Visuals will be the best of 2011. Although it's hard to judge based on KZ3's atmosphere and explosions or even Uncharted 3's experience.
link isnt working for me, am i the only one? edit: working now, nvm on topic: Metal Gear Solid: Rising is looking fantastic visually for 2011. also, we cant forget Killzone 3 and Gears of War 3. we all know they are going to be stunners!!
Crysis 2 (PC), console wise, probably one of the big exclusives, but as an early guess, Uncharted 3.
If you guys haven't seen Rage in person, you'll probably never believe someone who has. As far as consoles go, I'm sure Uncharted 3, Killzone 3, and The Last Guardian will take that crown...but Rage on full settings on a PC is absolutely unmatched. It's going to make us all cry! Btw...anyone else in the Killzone 3 beta? Man, that game is freakin' gorgeous!
I've got my eye on rage. Visuals are one thing, but its the art design too that's fantastic in it. Would be interesting to see iD vs Crytek on PC. I think Portal 2 deserves a mention. Its a simplistic look, but one that is believable.
Portal 2 is going to look great. I think we'll all be busy racking our brains around some of the puzzles though to actually fully appreciate the visuals. :P
Rage has been on my radar ever since it was announced. I'm really getting tired of waiting for it. Rage, Brink, Deus Ex 3 and Crysis 2 are the games I'm really looking forward to next year.
I'm not to sure about Crysis 2.. But, Rage and Brink are two of my most anticipated titles. Deus Ex is definitely up there as well.
i despise the google translated sites man. for anyone else that also despises them, the list is as follows: Killzone 3 Gears of War 3 Deadspace 2 Crysis 2 Fear 3 Deus Ex 3: Human Revolution Portal 2 LA Noire Batman: Arkham City Bulletstorm The Last Guardian inFamous 2 The Witcher 2 Rage Duke Nukem' Forever i'm personally looking forward to Killzone 3, Deadspace 2, Crysis 2, F3AR, Deus Ex 3, Bulletstorm, Socom 4, Dragon Age 2, The Witcher 2, Brink, Driver, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, Homefront, Bodycount, Rage, Dungeon Seige 3, Uncharted 3, and Ghost Recon Future Soldier. hoping Bulletstorm, Brink, Homefront and Bodycount turn out well
Rage IS on the list, it's #14  Yeah I'm kinda getting tired of these translated sites with pictures and one sentence descriptions.
yep, updated my comment. i missed the last page. thanks, google translate
I thought rage was on the list... ... I think I saw it. =x EDIT: Damn ninjas everywhere. x.x
Uncharted 3 says Hi
I say,best visually 2011 Killzone 3 Gears of War 3 Uncharted 3 Last Guardian And maybe resistance 3 EDIT: Id:Rage.
Why all PS3 exclusives? I bet Gears 3 will be very good too, maybe better than Killzone2 (yet not better than UC2) we all know Crysis will be THE killer (on PC) And have you seen the last screens from Tomb raider? God they are too good to be true :O
gears 3 will not match killzone 2, if it does i will cut my ball sack off and feed it to my granny whom i keep in my basement.
Because this a PS3 site! >.< Just read Scotland-The-Brave's comment. Don't mention Gears.. They will eat you alive! ^_^
Sure she's in your basement living with you man O.o
PC: Rage an maximum settings. Console: Uncharted 3 PS3: Uncharted 3 360: Rage or Gears of War 3 Seriously no console game will beat what Rage can do on a high-end PC. And no other console game will top Uncharted 3. Where Sony's first party devs can bring out the best in the PS3, Naughty Dog brings out the beast out of the PS3. Simply one of, if not the best devs in the buiseness.
Rage at max settings on PC is gonna look so sick!
Art direction goes to brink. Overall graphics and effects will either be killzone 3 or Crysis on pc. Edit: lol I forgot about uncharted 3 :)
UC3 HANDS DOWN!on consoles anyway
The graphics competition is between PC and PS3, but most PS3 devs.
Haha, consoles will never be able to surpass the power of PC's, this is a Fact. And don't come with Uncharted pics, cuz the PC can do this and more. PC is the ultimate, despite what all people say. I have a PC and a 360, i ain't no fanboy.
I actually haven't seen any PC game that looks much better than the best looking of PS3. And believe me I think PC is an awesome platform with some killer looking games. The way I see it, games such as God of War 3, Uncharted 2/3 and Killzone 2/3 have much better lighting, texturework, environmental detail, animations etc. The only way in which I can see PCs being better is in regards to much higher resolution capabilities. I don't see anything else tbh. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
Only a few games will blow my mind away. That would we Crysis 2(on PC), uncharted 3, and killzone 3. The others wont unless the last guardian got way better graphics since E3. Gears 3 looks like gears 2 with color.
2011 is gonna be an epic year for gaming
In my opinion, I think Brink and Rage will be two of the best looking games. Not just graphics, but such as art direction and all, too. Those are two games that I love the way they look.. Of course.. Killzone 3, Gears 3, Uncharted 3 and more will be killer, though.
the best looking games of 2011 will hands-down, without a doubt be on pc!! Crysis 2 (pc version set to destroy!!) The Witcher 2 (only on pc for now) Guild Wars 2 (only POSSIBLE on PC) two worlds 2 (pc version will be on a different level) Brink (ditto) Ghost Recon FS (ditto) RAGe (pc all the freaking WAY!) Honestly, the consoles should already be on a new gen...there has been zero gain since uncharted 2 for ps3 and bioshock 1 for 360
Killzone 3 will be the best looking one and is PS3-exclusive.
killzone 3 will look 99% exactly like killzone 2 which did not even look as good as crysis 1...uncharted 2 is ps3's best looking game and looks very very good ....but.... here are some pc games that look a little to a LOT better.,.. Crysis and warhead obviously with a few mods, natuaral is a good one far cry 2 stalker clear sky age of conan dx10 metro 2033 dx11 or 10 or 9 even still destroy uncharted2 or killzone 2 hellgate london dx10 the witcher ( some would argue this but this game is MASSIVE and BEAUTIFUL sniper ghost warrior (actually rivals crysis) shatterd horizon x3 terran conflict eve online starcraft 2 (sheer number of units and tactical options....try it on console,...play battle for middle earth 2 on console...i tried it...it was fucking embarassing) BATTLEFILD Bad company 2 ( compared to the consoles they are not even the same game...consoles are a blurry mess....) Gears of War PC......actually almost every unreal engine game maxed out on pc looks significantly better than any console version. Timeshift Sacred 2....console version a JOKE runs at 20 fps and on my desktop at 120 fps i could go on and on...i hope you see.....the ps3's 4 good looking games still can't hold a candle to the pc...i have a ps3...i use it as a bluray player or when a rare exclusive comes out...then for a game....
I'm only paying you any attention because you mentioned the underappreciated timeshift. As for the rest of the PC fanboyism just give it a rest. Nobody thinks the consoles can hold anything to the PC visuals so nobody compares nor includes them. Just let the console folks have their fun and ignore the, almost seperate, enthusiast PC market. edit: sorry i actually believed this until i saw masterofunlocking below.
You forgot a few STALKER Call of Priyat Arma II ARMA II Operation Arrowhead Grid Dirt 2 Cryostasis Lost Planet 2 with DX11 murders the console version
shoot...honestly ...World of Warcraft , espeacially the lich king areas, murderz 95% of console games:) napoleaon total war, empire TW lost planet 1 dx10 poops on everything but uncharted 2...and still it's 1080p or 1600p company of heroes dawn of war 2 rift planes of telara arcania gothic 4 risen all eat up console graphics and look how many are EXCLUSIVE!!! yummm
@ the PC fanboys above Keep telling yourself that. Except, I actually happen to have the Killzone 3 Beta and while it's a build of the game that's nowhere near finished, it already wipes the floor with all those PC games you're talking about. Yes, including Crysis. Crysis still has the best foliage ever, I'll give you that. And...that's it. Crysis' sole reason to even exist is its foliage, period. Everything else simply pales in comparison with Killzone 2: Crysis looks incredibly stiff, there's very little going on on the screen. Just watch that Killzone 3 video with the boss at the end to understand what I'm talking about. Oh, and Killzone 2 & 3 can be played in High Def on 40" displays with 5.1, and even 7.1 surround systems too. Too bad this is something all of you PC elitists always bragging about 4560 × 2380 res or w/e cannot enjoy. Bye.
Oh do shut up. Honestly - comparing consoles to PCs is pointless now. It's easy enough to buy a PC that'll outperform a 360 and a ps3 put together and stick it under an HDTV, or 6, and play from the couch on a 7.1 hdmi amp system and a 360 or ps3 controller. You're an idiot if you think you can't do that. It just costs more.
For the past year since I have joined N4G this BS argument has went on every week. It is getting tiresome and I must admit that I pour fuel in the fire every once in a while. However: Consoles will never beat a PC in performance and options. PCs will never beat consoles in popularity and simplicity. Cost can be argued until the cows fly home. Cost will only depend on the individual. I have a family of four, so it is cheaper to game on the PC and plus I buy a shit load of games. If I was single and/or in college, the console would be my choice since I would be play my console every once in a while, chasing tail / studying most of the time.
