This video counts down the best gaming graphics of the last generation ( 2013). Its is rated with specific criterias in mind.
Far Cry 3 Dev's work with AC Dev's = Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag = Massive WIN! You seem to hang on the PC side more. Yet you talk about Next Gen often. With Next Gen being console since PC's can update at anytime. So are we talking consoles or PC or both? Cause this seems all PC. While PC will come out on top given the ease of parts replacement at will. It's also truly amazing what developers can do on consoles give "fixed" hardware at also such a low low total product cost in buying a console. Maybe a video top 10 that separates the two platforms would be cool to see.
Next-gen merely means anything that is not feasible on current generation consoles. Typically, PC games become "next-gen" soon after a new console generation begins.
I hope you're suggesting 1-2 years. I wish more PC developers were like CDRedProjek. But on this list I would have gave it to Metro last Light over Crysis 3.
Would this be like the latest and greatest graphic's cards? Like have the best and a better one comes out. Then go replace it. This seems like every 6 months or less. So Next Gen to a PC really means Next Month, lol. Rather then waiting for 7, 8 years. btw, I did not click disagree. That system sucks.
No, I mean graphical features that go beyond the capabilities of consoles. Next-gen features of the 360/PS3 era were things like deferred MSAA, tessellation, etc.
PCs don't have generations. Single parts get incrementally better one by one and you have to purchase them one by one. Most multiplatform games are dependent on consoles. Aside from higher res, Fps and maybe a couple of shiny effects, they'll be the pretty much same once XB1 and PS4 launch.
PC's very much do have 'generations'...i don't even know where that is coming from...the only thing is developers scale nearly any game between generations, even if its exclusive to PC as a platform... meaning...AMD's R9 290x is very much a 'new' generation of graphics cards...just as the 7000 series of cards (mostly, anyway, as you have to watch out for rebrands) were a 'new' generation at the time...the 6000 series, same thing... and Nvidia is no different... cpu's follow the same formula... the only thing different is the way everything falls together...a PC is a system of mixed and matched parts...you can have a next generation graphics card with a previous generation cpu, motherboard, vice versa... and because of precisely that...development is never a fixed 'generational' thing...nearly any major PC release scales from using some pretty bottom end dated hardware...the the bleeding edge best...and everything in between... the only reason there are console 'generations' is because the hardware remains fixed for YEARS...and development mostly follows that fixed nature...so a next gen game matches the next gen console...but just because a pc game scales over multiple generations, doesn't mean there are 'no generations'...i mean, going by that logic, you're saying doom and Bf4 are from the same generation of PC gaming?
agreed! A video to separating them would be cool. Im shocked that id software's Rage wasn't mentioned. that game was beautiful. Some of the best graphics seen on console imo
Ok Crysis One again
And?I still cant find a game with environments the size of crysis 1 with its dense jungle yet in a game,deserved to be on that list.In fact it was not even on the list retard.
You do know those real life and Crysis pics were doctored to make them match.
I played Project CARS tonight, Bathurst in a thunderstorm. Its extremely demanding but looks utterly insane. Driveclub and Forza 5 aren't even close to be honest from what I have seen of them. Talking perfect motion blur, loads of realistic 3D trees, super high resolution wet tarmac reflections, amazing shadows cast by spontaneous lightning bolts. Phenomenal water sheeting across the road and spotting on the paintwork of the cars. Incredible.
Metro last light looks great! Beyond: Two Souls needs to be in the list of best looking games in 2013. Skin shaders are the best i have seen http://images.vg247.com/cur... http://cdn.bloody-disgustin... http://image.noelshack.com/...
those textures aren't impressive at all. Beyond has amazing mocap that brings characters to life, and detailed and colorful environments, but it also definitely has low res textures and jaggies. they're working on seven year old hardware, though, so it's understandable. *edit* btw, i should clarify that i'm talking about the non-facial textures not looking impressive. the face textures definitely look great, but all the other textures are pretty bland.
Face textures looks gorgeous, but clothes looks low res.
@nicksetzer, Are you that st**d? facepalm! Those pics are not CGI... CGI will never have lowpoly meshes and edges... CGI polycount is unlimited. http://s24.postimg.org/x08r... I played the game and in the actual gameplay u can zoom on someones face and see the details... No wonder i got 7 disagrees people talk about things they don't understand.
I hope there next project on the PS4 isn't all QTE , I need some action to play in
Beyond does look good. For a game that chops off a third of your screen height. It's clever really. Gives it a more cinematic feel while conserving resources for AA, particles, and whatnot.
Crysis 3 and Metro Last Light look very good. The residue does not. Killzone Shadow Fall and Battlefield 4 will also look quite nice, but they have no chance if you compare them with Crysis 3 and Metro Last Light.
Battlefield 3 is a very very beautiful game. I would place it on par with Crysis 3 and just above metro last light. KZ:SF will probably come close though- damn impressive for a console title.
What about LA noir, Assassins Creed(first time you see Jerusalem etc) Uncharted 3 and Ni no kuni? Great looking games visually.
Again, this is a PC thread with games that are on consoles as well. Yet the guy says Next Gen. PC is not Next Gen at all.... just forget about it, lol. We move on. :)
PC is actually everything from this generation to next generation to next next generation
Crysis 1's physics and vegetation are still better than Crysis 3's
I thought this countdown was pretty bogus for the most part... BioShock was so ugly I could hardly even play it...
right now im going for kz sf, god of war ascension,tlou, beyond 2 soul & halo 4
everyone of these games on pc maxed out in ultra @ native 1920x1080 already look WAY better than any game on ps4 or xbox1
how am i not surprise to find you in this thread. Thanks Mr.Obvious Btw i clicked Agree
Good list :) I love to play this games @1440p For those saying some console games look as good I sort of understand where they're coming from. But I have to disagree, muddy 720p and lower and luckluster textures just don't cut it. Animations in the best console games are awesome though :)
yep agreed...if there is one thing i'll remember about this current generation...it was the improvements in animation...and, despite some jaggie shadows, some incredible lighting too... still haven't come close to another game that has hit reactions like killzone 2...plugging an enemy point blank with him realistically reacting to every individual bullet will take a long time to forget...and the muzzle flares casting perfect shadows... Or uncharted 2...the first time you happen to melee someone and Drake just slams his head through a car window, while catching the enemy's gun before it touches the ground... I haven't seen one comparable 'improvement' in any game that blew me away as much as those did in 2009... yes fidelity is much higher...and the lighting 'softer', and everything is smoother...but the 'feel' of games hasn't changed a whole lot for a few years...I like both console and PC gaming...but i pretty much guarantee the type of stuff i mentioned above comes from developers that don't have to worry about 300 different hardware options...PC games just don't nail down the subtle details the way some console specific devs manage... all platforms are great, and compliment each other imo...
The Last of Us could have at least made number 10 or nine.
LAst of us is not so much in graphic fidelity but more in details. The game was filled with so many little details that it made the game incredible. I cannot wait for Next gen Naughty dog.
Of course it was going to be an all PC list given the age of the consoles. I agree a second list should be done for current gen consoles, then of course The Last of Us and GTA V will be high up there. For me though Tomb Raider maxed out with TressFX was one of the best visual experiences I've had, it should have been far higher. Bioshock infinite deserves a place, but as the guy said, I don't think that high. Landscapes and buildings are some of the best I've seen but the overall details wasn't 3rd place (but its not that sort of game anyway). So far no 'next gen' game (and I mean next gen as in consoles) have matched up to the likes of Witcher 2 and metro Last light, but that's not surprising because it takes a beast of a machine to run those games maxed out even now and simply the next gen consoles don't have that power. Although genius's like Naughty Dog could pull it out the bag one day I reckon.
Skyrim should not be in the list . Gears of war 3 - Uncharted 3 - TLOU - GTA V deserves a place there .
GTA V number one, is this outdated?
