Yeah Halo 4 is winning best graphic's awards everywhere, its should it looks better than anything released this year and upscaled console games on PC ain't going to beat it

Supabul

FC3, MP3, PS2, AC3 all on ultra decimates it :| Most can also make the case for Hawken and Hitman but I havn't seen that on Ultra yet.

They are literally better gfx in every way, and look vastly better.

Halo 4 destory's those title's and I played Hawken its not that great looking its decent

Digital Foundry did a great article on the awesomeness of Halo 4's visual's http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-vs-halo-4

That's a nice article. If 343 turn into an elite studio like Naughty Dog that'd be great. Reckon they need to do more then just pump Halo sequels for that status tho.

[QUOTE="locopatho"]Halo 4 was surprisingly good looking. I think Forza Horizon was the most impressive though, looking THAT good all while streaming an open world? Savage. That day night transistion was just mental.Another2days
But only on GT can we get that and physics. The PS4 will be a massive graphical leap than even PC because the PS4 will have easier dev tools meaning all the complex Ps3 devs will entitle full power at launch. 1280-1780p at at least 100 fps. Halo 4 is nothing but emty fields of heather. Nothing going on, not even technically impressive.

I can assure you, GT does not do what Forza Horizon does. The rest of that bable sounded too bias to me...like damn ringing.

90% PC games released this year :|.

There is no point including PC games in graphics competitions. It's hardly impressive that you can get better visuals when you have essentially no hardware budget restrictions at all. Now if you can show me an example of a PC game that is able to produce stand-out visuals with unusually low system requirements in contrast to its peers than that is another story.

As far as it winning multiple graphics awards for 2012, I have no issues with this (PC aside, FC3 Maxed is woo wee, and Hitman) as it rightfully so, is a beautiful game for console standards, and those real time cutscenes...wow I can't believe the 360 at times is doing that. Composer mission is a great example of the shadowing and raw detail all around, when you hope in the mantis...good stuff. :D Only thing for me personally is bring down the bloom and specular shading a touch. I would love to see this engine given a proper PC treatment.

At this piont its obvious those awards are about what the actual game did with the system given.

Has anyone mentioned that the graphics awards are best graphics considering the hardware? As in, a handheld game could win if it was impressive enough in it's own context.

Those Halo 4 screens look better, why do you think it won the best Graphic's award everywhere
#175 Posted by HaloPimp978 (7263 posts) -

Halo 4 has good graphics but its not the best graphical game this year. That goes to Far Cry 3 PC imo.

Jungles great, why is it anything with jungles is graphic's king its like Crysis all over again I know its hard to accept but your screenshot isn't that good Halo 4 pushes graphic's to the next level, its there for you to see your just blinded by your inability to accept that a console game has produced a better looking game and its not just me that's saying it, people all over the internet are praising its amazing visuals Just accept it maybe next year Crysis 3 PC will win

Graphics awards go to games that push the current generation consoles, why do hermits even need graphics awards it's obvious they dont need them, games look better on pc..............cool, I think game splay better on consoles, Except RTS's OH GOD

They play better with 15 fps dips and 19 fps average?

Sure. You know you can hook up a controller to PC if auto-aim is your thing.

Look at all the Damage Control from the Cows! :lol: The 360 owns the PS3 in graphics in 2012! Gamespot should have had a best graphics award this year but they didn't want to look like fools if they gave it to Journey over Halo 4! :lol:

i think it's unwise to say Halo 4 had bad graphics. Now i am not the biggest Halo series fan, even played the three first in the series. Still not fan unfortunately, but the graphics looked amazing from all gameplay i have seen
