I guess God of War? Maybe? Big enough budget and small enough environments to squeeze out those visuals.

RDR2. Still boot it up to roam around in the world. First person, especially, is good to see all the detail and work that went into that game. Beautiful.

With all the latest updates, it really looks great specially during rains in the forest.

I know I'll get stick for this....but...Sea of thieves is gorgeous. Artwork, water, sunsets are all aesthetically second to none.

Rdr2 for attention to detail and world size, and GoW looks as good as any.

People that give you shit for that are stupid. Sea of Thieves is objectively beautiful.

To have an opinion on this you have to have both consoles,as rare as rocking horse shit on this forum HAH

RDR2 Xb1x hands down...saying anything else confirms you are a 1 console owner

Hell no, not FF7. They put all the power available of the ps4 into the character faces and there was nothing left for textures.

FF7R at it's best is gorgeous. Sadly, the hub areas really do drag the game down. Largely, the main mission chapters are amazing.

I think all around, it's RDR2... Though I didn't play all that much, what I did looked excellent.

Assassin's Creed Origins on Xbox One X. A close second contender is Far Cry 5.

(I haven't played RDR2 yet).

I grew up with Atari 2600 and Colecovision, so I wouldn't call myself a graphic fanatic, but I do enjoy great graphics when I see it.

From what I've played I'd say either Horizon Zero Dawn or God of War.

yes we are in a period of time that even low budget games look good. im not saying any ones on that list are low budget i mean in general. there is no graphic king really just the art of each game that these developer create. take sea of thieves the game was not highly reviewed but the water looks better than god of war. but there are parts in god of war game that are artistically look better than most games because of the art style of the game. instead of graphics that system wars praise why can't we talk about art of these developers create. but then again if we did that system wars would be boring lol.

Hell no, not FF7. They put all the power available of the ps4 into the character faces and there was nothing left for textures.

The graphical quality is highly uneven. At its worst, some town areas have PS2-quality textures. But at its best, like in most of the story scenes and mission areas, it has some of the best graphics ever seen on consoles, rivaling CGI movie quality at times. The former parts don't detract from the latter parts.

As for the textures, FF7R's file size is almost 100 GB. A programmer at ResetEra checked out the texture files, and found that they're very high-quality. But in the game, some town areas don't load the HD textures, but instead load the low-quality LOD textures at first, before a delay in loading the HD textures. And in some instances, the HD textures don't load at all. The game clearly has texture bugs. Maybe an update could fix those bugs eventually. But if not, we might have to wait until the PC version to get fixed by mods.

  1. God of War
  2. Red Dead Redemption II
  3. Death Stranding
  4. Control
  5. Days Gone

The Last of Us 2 and Ghosts of Tsushima are probably going to break into the top 5. Gears 5 and Plague Tale both in top 10 somewhere.

To be fair, there was not much to do with the water in God of War, while Sea of Thieves, the water is the a core element to the game's experience. So, God of War water looks great for its application.

FF7 Remake when it loads as it should, which doesn't happen too often, but i prefer original art styles, like vanillaware games.

Lot of people saying FFVII:R... And it has phenomenal character models and some areas like the first rector looks spectacular... The rest of the game looks pretty garbage lol. PS2 textures every and PS1 backdrops....

Which is a shame since at its best it's arguably up there with the best looking console games like GOW, RDR2, Death Stranding...

RDR2 is definitely a finely tuned technical achievement and probably my favorite in terms of art design as well.

Question. I've had such a hard time playing that game due to the motion of the background blurring to the point I can't actually tell what's going on. Is this just something that I have to get used to? I'm wondering if this is my TV settings or something. Have you encountered what I'm talking about?

@freedomfreak: PS4 Pro. I may download on PC, as I have a 144hz monitor to see if that helps. Honestly, I think I might just getting older and my eyes are flattening or whatever the hell that "I'm 31 and I'm starting to die" BS is.
