Graphics play a major role in games, and as such should be celebrated. These are the best looking games of 2018.
Nothing on PC comes close to God of War. So happy PC gamers are being exploited by Nvidia. Hope they keep prioritizing frame rates over good games.
Hahaha suuuure. You guys are funny. So anti-PC, but somehow we're supposed to believe you all have gaming PCs.
I'm personally not "anti PC" but some PC gamers are really full of themselves. I'd like to know if the ones that claim they can play this game or that game on their PC with Ultra/Max settings really can.
Nvidia is anti competitive and anti consumer. This has nothing to do with PC. To support them is to bend over and beg for it before you are even asked and break down in tears when they reject you. You could just spit in your own hand and snack yourself in the face. It's a similar thrill for people who relish having zero self respect.
I own a gaming PC and I agree that GOW surpasses many high end PC games in terms of visuals. Though Mosh saying that nothing comes close is an exaggeration in my opinion. As for what Eonjay says even though I have a 1070TI in my PC I do agree that Nvidia has some pretty shady business practices especially where there New RTX line is concerned.
Agree with MasterCornHolio. My PC is more powerful than any console. This is a total embellishment. God of War looks amazing and looks better than *most* PC games. Saying "nothing comes close" is absurd. What "you guys" are you talking about?
I don't agree but I do think that nothing on pc looks as good using such finite resources. I have a 1080Ti on my pc and at 4K some games look as good but they're doing it with way more expensive hardware. God of War looks amazing on both of my PS4s.
That I can agree with, nothing looks quite that good using a 750ti.
You havent been playing on pc if you believe this. Honestly, nothing matches battlefield v with ray tracing on... not even close. The game itself might be disappointing, but its damn beautiful. You guys do this every gen, even late last gen you were trying to say 1080p ultra on pc looked the same as 720 sub 30 fps and low settings that the consoles offered.
I still remember when some were claiming that God of War 2 looked better than anything on PC, which was complete nonsense of course, but it doesn't seem to stop such claims every generation. All of the God of War games have been very nice looking games to be sure, but people get carried away in their fanaticism.
Spiderman is indeed a beautiful game, especially in motion swinging through the city. NYC has never looked better. And Spidey is wonderfully detailed. But I personally wouldn't agree with it being graphically above God of War & RDR2.
Spider man is an open world game and from a technical perspective I consider it to be a superior achievement than GoW. Didn't think that it was possible to have open world games that looked as good as not only Spider man but also Horizon and RDR2 this generation but here they are and with more to come with Ghost of Tsushima.
I get what your saying, I disagree. But respect your point. Yeah, it’s amazing to see just how far open world games have come in terms of graphics. Some of them are equally as impressive (graphically) as the smaller big budget triple AAA games. On the topic of Horizon & RDR2, those games especially are “in my opinion” technical marvels. The world and detail/lighting & colors remind me of Pandora/Avatar “James Cameron’s film” I’m anxious to see the world of Ghost of Tsushima & Death Stranding. Those worlds look marvelous.
*SPOILER* 99% of them are on PS4
33% are PS4 only, the rest is multiplatform (these usually runs better on PC). Only one title (8%) is not available on PS4.
i thought tomb raider looked good too!
God of war is another level, nothing comes close in 2018.
The best looking game of 2018 is the pc version of battlefield v (especially with ray tracing), even if the game itself is disappointing.
I fully agree with this.
Spiderman feels out of place on this list, especially at number one. The graphics were good, but it's a very visually boring city. God of War is gorgeous, as is Forza Horizon 4. RDR2 is great looking, despite the goofy hdr
This is purely about graphics though. The city is still visually stunning regardless of how boring you think it looks.
Sea of Thieves should be on the list.
Maybe look up some screenshots before you downvote
It really doesn’t look that good well maybe except for the water.
Yeah that's why Digital Foundry did a special showcase on Sea of Thieves graphics. They had nothing but nice things to say about it.
Nothing compared to the special showcase that they did on Spider-Man, God of War, Forza Horizon 4, Read Dead Redemption and Assasins Creed Odyssey. Those games are a lot more impressive on a technical level than Sea of Thieves.
Uh, some of those games you mentioned are not even 4K. Forza Horizon 4 is the best looking game of the year but Sea of Thieves is next.
There’s more to graphics than just resolution. It’s not like it’s the only thing that matters. Go watch Digitl Foundry analysis of those games. Also there’s no way Sea of Thieves is the second best looking game of the year.
Here's some I took myself...visuals are CRAZY at 4K/HDR. Truly beautiful game. https://screenshotscontent-... https://screenshotscontent-... https://screenshotscontent-...
RDR2. Everything else is a potato in comparison
Detroit Become Human Best Looking Game.
Yeah, Detroit is an incredible looking game. Luther possibly has the most lifelike character model I’ve ever seen. His face just looke so real. Really tho, all the photorealistic characters models & environments are so darn impressive. Quantic Dream continues fo raise the bar. Especially Luther’s character
I have a PS4 on a 4K OLED and this game is 10?10 in graphics nothing touches. In the begging when your walking through to Town to the shops for the painting my Jaw dropped.
Detroit is probably the best looking game. RDR and GOW are second for me, haven't played spiderman yet
Sea of Thieves and Forza Horizon 4 are two lookers that stand out for me on the Xbox side of things. X has these two games topped in.
