Since fanboys seem to be trolling today and saying Uncharted isin't technically impressive, after we've had months of debate and came to agree that Uncharted is the graphics king, I'm gonna let the pics do the talking, because this is definitely the graphics king til Gears 2 comes out. :P

Yes, it is the current graphics king and Uncharted 2 is in development so it'll be interesting to see what ND do with it.

Please point out that its the graphics king on consoles, or else this thread will be filled with Crysis pics :)

And yes currently Uncharted is the best looking game on consoles, from personal experience having played both Geow1 & Uncharted on the same TV (32" HDTV), i can say Uncharted looks better...

Do you really think it's mature to post messages like that. It's an opinion.

Meh.

I have both, have beaten both at least 3 times, I was a huge champion of Uncharted's graphical prowess at the time, but Metal Gear Solid 4 unquestionably looks better. Uncharted's environments are awesome, but MGS takes the cake.

It is a good looking game. I would put it between BioShock, Uncharted, and Ratchet & Clank for me. Maybe Ace Combat 6 as well.

In my belief Assasins Creed is the current console graphics king.

Graphics imo are a hard thing to judge. Do we want amazing graphics, with small stages (Uncharted, Gears) or do we want good looking games with impressive stages (Assassins, GTA). The diff between this 2 is the quality of the textures. Kind of like in MGS 4. Uncharted and Gears have more consuming textures in the enviroments, so when you zoom to a wall, it doesnt look bad. GTA, AC and MGS 4 use a different technique. The textures look amazing from the distance that you normally have, but when you have to go closer or zoom up, they look terrible.

While it certainly very nice,

I would still opted to think that Assasins Creed is graphically superior to anything else so far this generation.

Finally someone posted a pic of the good but not great looking interiors of the game. The drastic change in quality imo, especially in darker caves and late chapter industrial areas as compared to the vibrant almost lifelike jungles really hurts the gfx king argument.

MGS4 is king, it's not really debatable.

far away shots of textures=fail

any low resolution texture looks good far away, only way to prove graphical dominance is by posting screenshots of how detailed the textures are upclose.

only way to compare graphics=going closest you can up to a texture and seeing how detailed it looks.

Did you wonder why?

Its a first person shooter. The textures need to be more detailed as the game is played from the first person perspective.

Gears and Uncharted are tied as far as I'm concerned. They're both kings, but almost too different artistically to compare.

Its not soley the textures that make a game look great, and what has this got to do with me wanting to buy the game?

If I wanted great visuals id go play Crysis now.

Why? Why do you need to do something unnatural like zooming in on a rock to prove graphical prowess? The pictures posted look like what the game actually looks like when you play it, which is what is important. I think that is what developers keep in mind when they design environments. I'm glad they don't waste time and processing power making meaningless background objects look more realistic.

Finally someone posted a pic of the good but not great looking interiors of the game. The drastic change in quality imo, especially in darker caves and late chapter industrial areas as compared to the vibrant almost lifelike jungles really hurts the gfx king argument.

MGS4 is king, it's not really debatable.

It's too bad that's not in-game, nice try though. Assassins Creed looks great but it doesn't have much variety, if you've seen one of the cities you've seen them all, albiet a few extra buildings thrown in, everything in the game is either white or light-brown with hints of green here and there.

It's a toss up between Gears and Uncharted if you ask me. Uncharted is certainly more colourful, but Gears is more detailed and nails the whole "gritty" thing pretty well.
