The way I see it, these games seem pretty close in terms of visual aesthetic to warrant a comparison. Which do you think has better graphics?

Pikmin.

Because it makes my heart melt :3

I guess both have green. I'll go with Halo since it copies Metroid Prime.

Nothing about halo 4 looked impressive so by default Pikmin 3.

Halo 4. Obviously this was gonna attract a bunch of cows and idiots who claim a HD Gamecube game looks better than Halo 4. This place just gets more pathetic every day.

I'm gonna have to say Pikmin. It just looks better artistically.

well considering this thread is made by one of the huge cows of this forums i got to say that both halo 4 and pikmin 3 poo all over the ps3 exclusives graphically IMO.

OMG graphics are the only thing that matter now.

I don't see the point in comparing the two. I mean, one (Halo 4) is a near end of life-cycle game where they have had years to master the hardware and software, and the other (Pikmin 3) is a launch title where they are just starting to understand the hardware/ software let alone master it.

Halo 4 > Pikmin 3 > Anything on PS3

Pikmin clearly looks better
#28 Posted by kalipekona (2401 posts) -

Pikmin 3 is a nice looking game for what it is, but obviously doesn't come anywhere near something like a Halo 4 or an Uncharted 3. Im sure the Wii U is going to have much better looking games than Pikmin 3. Then again, this was obviously a joke thread.

Pikmin looks terrible, this is hands down some of the worst art style of all time

Halo 4 is the best looking console title right now by a huge margin

halo 4 looks better (graphically)

I like the look of Pikmin 3 more though can't say its better graphically than halo

Pikmin 3 just looks plain gorgeous technically and artistically. It also does it with well over 100 characters on the screen and 60 frames per second.

Halo 4 doesn't look much better than a launch Wii game.

HD GameCube game > generic shooter

Pikmin 3

I'd say Pikmin, but much more from an artistic standpoint. Halo looks like any other Sci Fi shooter with some extra bloom, its pretty and all, but doesn't do anything unique.

Pikmin doesn't try to push the technical boundaries, but still looks crisp and sharp while giving an incredibly beautiful style that I think makes it stand out from a lot of other games.

So I'd say Pikmin.

Not really, but whatever floats your boat.
