The best graphics for 2016?

Discussion in 'Gaming' started by Alpolio, Dec 26, 2016.

  1. My pick for best graphics is Gears of War 4. This is how you do graphics...

    Can't wait to see this on the Scorpio. :)
  2. I think we've hit a graphics plateau. It's just art, scenery, and colors preferences at an individual level. The generational 'wow factor' has gotten less impressive.

    Anyway, my vote is for Mirrors Edge 2... it's got an unique style and look. More importantly it's an old school quick thinking and fast reflex game that requires real skills. I'm over the heavily story driven interactive soap operas. #game of the year.
  3. Did you actually play Mirrors Edge Catalyst?
  4. I've read Gears 4 is extremely well optimized, maybe the best optimized of 2016. I'm not sure about best overall graphics. I don't see a Crysis or Metro type of game that blows everything else away this year.
  5. Rise of Tomb Raider looks amazing on PC. Gears looked great on PC too, lots of customisation - exactly what a game should be like!
  6. Battlefield 1 for all around realism and textures that were pretty consistent through all environments. Division for attention to detail. Witcher 3 for vegetation realism and draw distance. Rise of the Tomb Raider is great for textures and faces but things get a bit too shiny for my taste.

    Too Shiny
  7. It would be interesting if Rise of the Tomb Raider won Best Graphics for both PC and console. The PS4 Pro version is widely lauded as one of the best looking console games so far, and obviously the PC version looks very good as well.

    Rise of the Tomb Raider was my choice for best graphics of 2015.It has been out for a while now.

    They really pushed the boundaries with that game.
  9. PC and PS4 versions were 2016.

    Correction. It was "ported" to PC & PS4 in 2016. The Nixxes handled the 360, PS4, and PC port. The Xbone was Crystal Dynamic's lead platform.
