Top 10 Current-Gen Games with the Best Graphics

It's always nice to have something pretty to look at.

The fact that Niel Druckmann stated Horizon Zero Dawn is the new bar in graphical fidelity and in this video Horizon is an honorable mention while Uncharted 4 is #1 is simply ignorant on Watchmojos part.

The video isn't valid if Horizon Zero Dawn isn't on the list

What do you expect from this obselete un-informed youtube channel.

inveni0538d ago

Druckmann said that because it's open world, and particularly because of the foliage. I think that Uncharted still has the best character models and close-quarters environments.

inveni0537d ago

I have three disagrees from people who didn't listen to the Druckmann conversation with Herman.

His interview with Hermen was very nice and interesting. He particularly mentioned the foliage in a lively open world saying he ll have to go tell his team this is the new bar.
Then Hermen mentioned a friendly competition on foliage in an amused way. It's all in good spirit though and maybe the internet take these way too seriously.

HZD is good, but no Star Citizen or Crysis 3 when it comes to photorealism. Niel is Sony's employee, he's biased obviously.

ThatGuyDart538d ago

You have to be kidding me. Horizon Zero Dawn not being on this top 10 list at all is a joke, period.

Bathyj538d ago

Horizon isnt supposed to be photo realistic, and if you dont think it makes it in the top 10 graphics for this gen let alone the top 2 or 3 you havent played it.

Also, HA. you calling people biased, too rich.

Top 10.

1. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
2. Battlefield 1
3. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
4. The Order 1886
5. Final Fantasy XV
6. Halo 5: Guardians
7. Batman Arkham Knight
8. Forza Horizon 3
9. Mario Kart 8
10. The Vanishing of Ethan Carter

How did Horizon Zero Dawn not make Top 5? That's a crock. I would replace The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Mario Kart 8 & The Order 1886 with Horizon: Zero Dawn, Gears 4 & Star Wars: Battlefront. Everything else seems fine though.

No Driveclub and Horizon Zero Dawn a honorable mention with trailer footage Lmaooo. It's either blindness or they haven't played these two games. IMO while UC4 has better character models and facial animations, overall I was more impressed by what Guerilla pulled off in and open world game.

Deadlead538d ago

An honest list would have been severely one sided for PS4, these guys were just trying to appeal to as many fans across as many platforms as possible.

I mean they state their criteria excludes stylized games and then almost immediately place MK8 on the list. The WiiU version no less

Sciurus_vulgaris539d ago

From what I've played (and own) this gen XB1, PS4 (I have a Wii U, but it'sgames aren't visually on par with XB1 and PS4 titles, due to hardware).
1. Uncharted 4 (PS4)
2. Gears of War 4 (XB1)
3. Rise of the Tomb Raider (XB1)
4. Battlefield 1 (XB1)
5. Batman Arkham Knight (PS4)
6. Infamous Second Son (PS4)
7. Ratchet and Clank (PS4)
8. Halo 5(XB1)/Doom(PS4)/Killzone Shadowfall (PS4)
9. Gears of War: UE(XB1)
10. Witcher 3 (XB1)

Honerable Mentions: Sunset Overdrive, Deus Ex Mankind Divided and Halo 2: Anniversary

Dishonerable Mention: Fallout 4

Note: Have not played nor do I own the Order 1886, Quantum Break, or Horizon Zero Dawn, but they're backloged. I am very slowly playing through Ryse, due to games with gold. Racing games like Forza Horizon 3 and Drive Club, simply don't interest, but I respect there visuals.

I have Doom, Killzone Shadowfall and Halo 5 tied, as they out class each other in some areas. Halo 5 has the best models, mp graphics and cutscenes. While Doom has the best animations, but some strange megatexures. Killzone Shadowfall has weird animations, but some stunning lighting, and a jumpy framerate.

rando 538d ago (Edited 538d ago )

@ Sciurus_vulgaris: no Order:1886 or Doom... your list is invalid. you have 2 Gears games... only Gears 4 should be on here. one of which looks "just ok" (UE) Infamous looked good at launch, but looks "just ok" now... no KIllzone. you said it had a jumpy framerate, but it still looks better than Gears UE. Witcher 3 doesn't look that great on console, I would've put Ryse over the console version of Witcher 3. Drive Club doesn't interest me either, but I thought this was a GRAPHICS list... yeah... this list is 100% invalid.

EatCrow538d ago

He does have Doom on the list...

Please reference his first sentence for what the list is made of "From what I've played (and own) this gen XB1, PS4 (I have a Wii U, but it'sgames aren't visually on par with XB1 and PS4 titles, due to hardware). "

rando 538d ago

@ EatCrow: idc what arbitrary qualifiers they want to add in order to make their list true... thats like posting a list that says "From what I've played (and own) Donkey Kong Country is #1 best graphics in a game ever" that may be true if you add that b.s qualifier at the beginning... but at that point, why even post your list?

the fact of the matter is, you dont need to have owned or played a game in order to see that a game is graphically better than another. I've never played Horizon or Driveclub & do not own them. I've never even played past the 1st stage in The Order 1886, but YOUTUBE is a thing that exists... so I dont need to have owned or played them in order to say they're some of the best looking games out there. your logic is faulty & Sciurus_vulgaris's list is still invalid.

I would say there are plenty of great looking games this gen.

I think Horizon Zero Dawn, Uncharted 4, The Order 1886, Assassins Creed Syndicate, Batman Arkham Knight, and Dishonored 2 all look great.
