20 Graphically Insane Games to Look Forward to in 2012

Reith writes: "Games get more daring and intelligent each year, and I don't just mean in terms of AI and technical innovations. Having written a series of features already on what to expect from 2012, I approached this particular feature with a sense of dread, expecting nothing more than coining a list of highly similar games where graphics become more of a contest than a method of expression. 2012 is lifting my spirits though, as my research has reminded me of the wealth of intriguing and visually original titles that await us in new year. Here's 20 of them for your perusal. "

Quite the dramatised headline, certainly not what we've come to expect from GamingBolt.

Karooo2066d ago

Every site has its unique style lol.

blaaah2066d ago

A list like this one can't be called complete without including Diablo III

CYBERSNAKE2066d ago

The headline might as well be '20 Games to Look Forward to in 2012'

Most of those games hardly qualify as 'graphically insane'.

Darkfocus2066d ago

Diablo 3 has shitty graphics...Well the Beta does at least..I'm in it...also my avatar is the games launch shortcut so it's not like I'm not a fan it's an extremely well made game...the graphics are shit though...

Joule2066d ago

What do you mean not to expect? These guys suck, I never click their links.

TenSteps2066d ago

He meant it as sarcasm dummy. Unless it's not, or unless your post is sarcasm to his sarcasm then I'm the dummy. Maybe this post is sarcasm to your sarcasm about his sarcasm. But then who's the dummy?

Long story short medium possibility I could be the dummy.

NeXXXuS2066d ago

I never click any links lol. I always look at the comments on here before I try to click on anything :P

raytraceme2066d ago

lol those games blow anything on the xbox. Fortunately ps3 has artstyle worked out for its games that they are more desirable to look at. I do think that metro last light might be the best looking game technically next year though. PC > ALL

DFresh2066d ago

You forgot Counter Strike: Global Offensive and Tribes: Ascend.
:P

_Aarix_2066d ago

Dude, get over yourself

RyuCloudStrife2066d ago

hmmm and you say n4g is filled with kids

NeXXXuS2066d ago (Edited 2066d ago )

You do know that disagrees don't take away your bubbles, right? It just means that people don't agree with what you're saying. Keep comments to yourself about how some people don't like what your opinion is.

paddystan2066d ago

Have you never heard of a game called The Last of Us by the edge-breaking Sony owned developer Naughty Dog? Or have you lived under a rock since VGA?

annus2066d ago

Have you seen Metro: 2033 on PC max? And I mean in person, not some youtube compressed video. As awesome as The Last of Us will be, it won't be anything compared to the new Metro when it comes out. 2033 looked amazing and I'm sure the new one will top 2033 by a fair margin.

Rivitur2066d ago

Gotta agree with Annus Metro: 2033 was beatiful on pc however Last light look way better and 4a showed it on a moderate pc. It will be interesting to see which game looks better on PS3 though...

paddystan2066d ago

Yes, I have seen it, and I have Metro 2033 on my gaming PC. But where did you read something like "I don't think Metro: Last Light look good", because I really think it looks way better than The Last of Us.

BlmThug2066d ago

Its a damn trailer. You havent even seen any actual gameplay. You Fanboys are so gullible, they show a trailer and boom you say its going to be one of the best graphically insane games of 2012.

xX-StolenSoul-Xx2066d ago

I'm most looking forward to GTA 5 on that list.

RXL2066d ago

i don't understand why you got a disagree...

is the person that disagreed with what you said, trying to say themselves that you aren't looking forward to gta5?...how do they know you, better than yourself?..is this you from the future?..warning you not to get your hopes up?..

i must know who disagreed and why?!..

vortis2066d ago

They disagreed because GTA V doesn't belong on the list.

It doesn't even look better than GTA IV iCEnhanced. How can a new game be graphically insane when it doesn't look better than its predecessor?

RXL2066d ago

i keep forgetting about the graphically insane part...

but as a rebuttal..for the sake of it..

it hasn't come out yet..so how can you judge a game that has only a trailer?

vortis2066d ago

Dude, the trailer was all in-engine and if it has to run on the 360/PS3 it won't look better than what we seen. If you play GTA IV on the 360/PS3 and play it on PC you'll know exactly what I'm talking about in regards to the graphics fidelity issue that GTA V will face.

The hardware is more than six years old and games are being held back to accomodate the old GPUs and limited amounts of half-gigabyte RAM. It doesn't matter if it's a trailer or not, technically you CANNOT have an open-world more detailed and graphically rich than what we seen in GTA IV if they plan to keep using Euphoria (which they will) and if it plans to keep running on RAGE (which it does) and they plan to add MORE gameplay mechanics.

Graphically insane? Not by a long-shot. A decent looking open-world action game for the consoles? Definitely.

AdmiralSnake2066d ago (Edited 2066d ago )

I laughed at some of these games on the list Lmao.... especially Last of us, they didn't show no gameplay... only a trailer... sigh.

I don't care if it's from Naughty Dog, we know nothing about the graphics, so that is irrelevant.

Max Power2066d ago (Edited 2066d ago )

Past experience from Naughty Dog is that those cut-scenes are used by in-game models, so it's a good chance that they will look nearly like that all the time through out the game.

Lovable2066d ago

Well it's one from naughty dog...it is to be expected to be honest...

SonyStyled2066d ago

the trailer is directly taken from a PS3. it says that before the trailer if you download it from the ps store. it was definately in engine.it may have been in game. graphics wise its what weve all seen from uncharted, nothing new there. just improved character models

AdmiralSnake2066d ago (Edited 2066d ago )

That wasn't in game graphics... lmao.

You're lying to yourself if you believe that. There wasn't an actual gameplay trailer showing the graphics. I'm not hyping this shit up till I see some gameplay with actual in game graphics.

Regardless of whether it's Naughty Dog or not, that means nothing to me.

In my opinion, the last of us don't belong on that list, until we see some gameplay, matter fact most of the games don't belong on that list, but hey this is just MY OPINION.

All I'm saying is, wait till we see more before hyping this game up, we barely know anything about it.

Lmfao... plus he put Sly cooper 4 ? Plus the author reason is

"Those uninitiated with Sly’s tight and refined stealth platforming gameplay will be forgiven for just admiring the pretty cel-shading, as it is rather stunning. The Sly Cooper HD collection on PS3 looked better than most PS3 exclusive games, despite being a compilation of HD remakes from the previous generation. With that in mind, we can only begin to imagine how awesome a Sly game built for the PS3 from the ground up will look."

A BIG LMFAO because Sly Cooper HD collection, doesn't look better than most PS3 exclusives, okay I'm just gonna laugh and leave the comment section. Pure nonsense here bwahaha.

Motorola2066d ago (Edited 2066d ago )

After seeing Uncharted 3, are you really going to doubt that the Last of Us won't look good? It does belong on that list. It may not look exactly like the trailer but it will look good. Do you have a vendetta against ND to believe that The Last of Us won't look good?
