God Of War 3 was an obvious choice here, I standby what I've always said, it looks visually better then Uncharted 2. Based on the Uncharted 3 beta it could well still look better then that as well. Alongside Killzone 3 I see God Of War 3 as the most visually impressive game that's ever graced a console. Heavy Rain looks good especially where the faces are concerned but in places they are very bland or in some cases the animations needed a bit more work.

About the Awards
GameSpot's Best of 2010 awards cover special achievements in the field of advancements for games, dubious honors for less-than-admirable qualities, and full awards for individual genres and every major platform. Nominations and awards are the result of rigorous debate among GameSpot's editors, who select up to five finalists and one winner for almost every category (the Game of the Year category includes up to 10 finalists). To qualify for an editorial award, games must have been reviewed by GameSpot between January 1, 2010, and November 30, 2010.
Award categories are intended to call out those games that truly deserve the attention--therefore, while each award is meaningful, it's considered an honor simply to be nominated.
Best Graphics, Technical
Every year, games push the boundaries of what game hardware can do by exploring new effects, pushing more polygons, and creating a more technically impressive picture than anything we've seen previously. This category recognizes the games with the most technically impressive graphics.

God of War III's presentation is outstanding, and although its huge set-piece battles are impressive to look at, the fact that they take place in such detailed environments with such excellent lighting is nothing short of amazing.
Readers' Choice Voting
Set in the realm of brutal Greek mythology, God of War III is a single-player game that allows players to take on the climatic role of the ex-Spartan warrior, Kratos, as he scales through the intimidating heights of Mt. Olympus and the dark depths of Hell to seek revenge on those who have betrayed him. Armed with double-chained blades, and an array of new weapons and magic for this iteration of the trilogy, Kratos must take on mythology's darkest creatures while solving intricate puzzles throughout his merciless quest to destroy Olympus. Utilizing a new game engine built from the ground up and state-of-the-art visual technologies, the development team behind God of War III has made standard-setting strides in giving players the realistic feel of actually being on the battlegrounds. With texture resolutions quadrupling since God of War II on PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system, God of War III, in its debut on the PS3 system, will feature fluid, life-like characters, as well as dynamic lighting effects, a robust weapon system, and world-changing scenarios that will truly bring unmistakable realism to Kratos' fateful quest. Players will have a chance to join battles on a grand scale that is four times larger than its predecessor.

Huh, I think Heavy Rain had better graphics. God of War had a ton of good points sure, but it did have some low points in some areas.
I agree 100% this was my best graphics pick ever since i got it back in march i was just blown away.
