Poll: Who is graphics king? (176 votes)

Star Citizen 48%
Uncharted 4? 16%
The Order? 10%
Killzone: Shadow Fall 3%
It's still Crysis 3 22%

My friends, a while back I asked the grand qeastion, the ultimate qeastion about gaming, as we don't actually give a shit about gameplay in system wars, at all.

It seems some resistance occurred, people saying "oh ah but the PS4 has The Order and Uncharted 4"

I ask you now my beloved ones, let us settle this score once and or and for and.

What is the current graphics king?

Really, none of the above!

#3 Posted by scottpsfan14 (5588 posts) -

Technically, Star Citizen. Asthetically (for me) Uncharted 4.

#4 Edited by happyduds77 (1488 posts) -

Star Citizen considering the scale.

Uncharted 4 shouldn't even be on the poll. Naughty Dog are dirty little liars.

Star Citizen. Why the Hell you put Uncharted 4 and 1886 up there? Those games are not out yet.

#8 Posted by sailor232 (4831 posts) -

I think Metro:Last light on pc. Amazing game with amazing graphics and atmosphere.

But the game isn't out. And the current playable builds are no where near the visuals of the trailer. It will be at release of course, just not at the moment.

Your mother is.

#15 Posted by Heirren (17361 posts) -

The Order, and probably Ryse at 4k on pc. Fanboys will be fanboys.

voted the order. not going to vote uncharted 4 until i see gameplay. no way of knowing how it will stack up to that teaser trailer. same applies to star citizen. you guys have no clue how the game is going to match up to the commercials. the gameplay modules you are all playing are nothing special.

Anything that has nothing to do with Consoles

Right now: Battlefield 3

In future: Star Citizen

Everyone who votes Uncharted, Killzone or Ryse are console fanboys who ignores truth and facts that PC gaming is always winner and console gamers are slaves.

Why Uncharted 4 is even in poll? We have not seen anything yet. It was fully CGI trailer

#20 Posted by thehig1 (2306 posts) -

@FreedomFreeLife: Wow, I forgot how good Battlefield 3 looked.

CGI trailers don't get rendered in 60fps, have clipping, or have shadow aliasing. You are in for a shock if you think that was CGI.

Battlefield 3 still looks great.

Looks as good as BF4 really.

#24 Posted by Cloud_imperium (3724 posts) -

"let us settle this score once and or and for and." . Lol , what .?

Anyways ... Star Citizen (by far) . Witcher 3 should've been there as well . In my opinion , it is best looking game until Star Citizen and/or Unreal Tournament comes out .

#25 Posted by m3dude1 (1367 posts) -

considering the only real footage you have seen of unreal tournament is a flat shaded room and a version of face ripped straight from ut99 thats a pretty smart statement.

A game developed by Epic exclusively for PC will always be an expected graphics king. They'll probably make it very scalable, but at the very least it will likely be the best looking FPS at the time of its release.

#27 Edited by m3dude1 (1367 posts) -

do you even realize how much of the staff who made the previous pc focused unreals has left epic? keep wishing on a star tho. its amazing what gigantic hypocrites herms are.

#28 Edited by humanistpotato (533 posts) -

You should have added BF4/3 (whichever you want since they look pretty much same)

#29 Posted by AmazonAngry (945 posts) -

Glad to see The Order is winner, which is true.

#30 Edited by Cloud_imperium (3724 posts) -

So , users at System Wars think Crysis 3 looks better than Killzone (currently at 3%) , The Order (lol 6%) and even Uncharted 4 (9%) , while Star Citizen looks better than all of them .? I respect your opinion System Wars .

#31 Posted by PAL360 (26939 posts) -

Probably Star Citizen. Out from the games i played, easily Infamous Second Son.

Neither of them as of now at least

How come that Battlefield 4 multiplayer graphics looks worse than Battlefield 3?

CGI trailer is CGI trailer. There was no gameplay or ingame video.

They said that Killzone 2 first trailer was also Ingame rendered trailed.

Few more:

bf3 has better art and better engine. bf4 was a rushed hackjob. the game probly needed at least another 18 months of work. i mean its now been what, 10 months they have been trying to fix the game and its still a completely random pile of trash with worse graphics/sound/performance than bf3.

5% is winner LOLOLOLOL

#37 Posted by scottpsfan14 (5588 posts) -

It's stupid the amount of people saying Crysis 3. Star Citizen destroys it graphically. So does The Order, Witchcer 3, Uncharted 4 (Trailer atleast), Ryse, etc.

#38 Edited by LegatoSkyheart (25612 posts) -

Skyrim got dethroned HARD.

Out of your list though? Star Citizen, but Unreal Engine 4 takes the Graphics King Crown.

@FreedomFreeLife: pc fanboy meltdown confirmed

#40 Posted by thehig1 (2306 posts) -

@amazonangry: the order is not out yet, it could turn out like watch dogs with the finished game not being as impressive as what we seen pre release.

#41 Posted by GarGx1 (2776 posts) -

Out of the games available now Metro, BF3, Crysis 3

Up coming games, there can be only one - Star Citizen

#42 Posted by BigShotSmoov007 (291 posts) -

lol, you need to make a better list of games before you want to poll people. No one has seen any Uncharted gameplay so how did that even make the list?

#43 Posted by Telekill (4714 posts) -

Given the in engine trailer for Uncharted 4, I'm going with that. That said, PC is the more capable hardware... IF... you can afford and keep up with all the hardware upgrades.

In my house, PS4 trumps my PC by a significant margin. I may upgrade my PC when Star Citizen releases, but until then, my PC is less powerful than an Xbox 360.

What's the point of doing a poll if hermits are gonna choose anything but console games no matter what. Yeah UC4 could look better than Avatar CG yet biased hermits would still say Crysis 3 looks better lol.

#45 Posted by delta3074 (18418 posts) -

star citizen man, anybody that says otherwise seriously needs to go to specsavers,lol

An excellent point my friend, the order should be dominating since it won all those awards.

Something is wrong.

dude, even you have to acknowledge that Star citizen looks WAY better than anything on consoles and i highly doubt UC4 would come close to matching the CGI in avatar let alone best it

Well Star Citizen, Uncharted, and the Order aren't even out yet. Crysis 3 probably is still king of the list. Killzone Shadow Fall gives it a run for its money, but in the early development on the PS4 clearly limited the graphics in a lot of key areas.

I think Uncharted 4 will look better than Crysis 3, but that's not until late 2015 while Crysis 3 was an early 2013 game, so we have nearly 3 years apart from each other. Obviously Uncharted 4 will be resolution and framerate bottlenecked by the PS4, but that's not the fault of the game. Asset and rendering wise I think Naughty Dog is always on top of the pack. Naughty Dog doesn't have the PS3/360 and DirectX bottlenecking them so they can put a lot more emphasis on varied geometries and fully utilize modern rendering techniques. Crysis 3 has a lot of modern rendering which is why it looks good but the asset creation and diversity of the levels was bottlenecked quite a bit by the last gen consoles.

Star Citizen keeps looking better and better but it is still using the CryEngine and there is something about the lighting/shading of the CryEngine that still looks fake and cartoony. The Unreal 4 engine has a much more "realistic" look to it. Just take a look at the video below:

We'll see. Uncharted 4 is a late 2015 game and Naughty Dog is one of the best in the industry with graphics. However I believe that DICE will pull out something amazing with Battlefront as they are building a Frostbite 3 game without the bottleneck of the last gen consoles. Ubisoft's The Division on the PC will also be an amazing looking game due to the new engine built by Massive Entertainment.

Asset creation isn't bottlenecked like it was last generation. The PS3/360 never had a problem with draw calls but only had 512mb of total system ram which really bottlenecked textures and general diversity. The weaker GPUs and outdated also prevented them from utilizing things like tessellations for cheap, high poly geometries, and in general couldn't do tons of dynamic light, shadow, or global illumination, all of which are key elements to modern game engines.

Now that developers can fully utilize those techniques on a large scale we'll see some amazing looking games. PC versions will also be able to shine further as it's a lot easier to just up the quality of existing rendering within your game rather than having to support multiple renderers with vastly different rendering on each platform like they did last gen.

Hopefully we'll see some amazing looking games going forward. That said, out of that list I would still put Crysis 3 as the graphics king with Killzone Shadow Fall right behind it. Shadow Fall was a beautiful game but I think Crysis 3 beats it just a bit.
