Call of Duty 4 for sure. The self shadowing objects in that game matched with the dynamic lighting and lush environmental textures make it way better looking than any game on 360 to date. The effects are also really sweet i.e. smoke, explosions, tracer bullets, etc. The sad thing is... the games in the next gen gaming era will make you go back, play these great looking games, and they will look like PSX games look and feel now.
I think i have a tie between CoD4, ME, and AC.
All are great in different ways... CoD4 just all around looks nice and the effects are amazing (explosions, the heat put out when you shoot the gun). ME has amazing detail on the characters are the detail on the water was extremely well done (I am talking about the planet Vimire for water). Then AC has a lot of detail in the enviroment. The draw distance is huge and the detail for that large of a draw distance is great (and yes i do know that the cities arn't fully loaded, but just enough to see the buildings and not the details on the buildings, but theys till look great).
All look great and it is too hard to choose which one is best.
For all that are wondering and who ever cares the 4th place runner up is Halo 3. That game made 4th solely on effects because to be truthful Halo has never been good for graphics, but the effects have always looked nice for the time... an example would be the bubble shield.
I'm loving the look of bioshock best myself. The style is awesome, particularly how the blood is unrealistically shiny and spurts beautifully. Not realistic, but with the art deco-ness of the game and the technically brilliant water, its my favorite graphical game.
In terms of pure sheer photo realism I don't think any game even comes close to photo realism (except Crysis, but even thats not there yet).
hrrrm for me it's a tie between mass effect, halo 3, and bioshock. and honestly after playing those games, i don't even care about graphics at all anymore, those 3 games are about as good looking as games ever need to get.wreak
Halo 3? Are u kidding? id have to say mass effect
