Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Is Xenoblade X and Bayonetta 2 the best looking games to ever grace a Nintendo system?

Even better than what Nintendo can and has done themselves?

Ehh...this is a pointless question. Of course some of the best looking games on a next gen platform are going to trump any old ones. That's true for every platform.

Probably yes. Not that that's saying much.

 

So funny. Much wit.

Leave Noble alone. He has a good reason to be spiteful. It was only a few weeks ago that a Nintendo fan called him an idiot.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Art style trumps sheer graphical power any day of the week. It's because of that that Super Mario World and Windwaker are going to stay near the top of my "looks good" list regardless of how many generations go by.

From a power perspective though, X and Bayo are the most impressive so far. The scope of Nintendo games have never been like X and Bayonetta, they'll both be the first of their kind on the Wii U, and the art styles are drastically different than something like Mario Kart 8, which itself looks amazing. I don't think they'll be more impressive than the future installments of Zelda however.

Graphics are the absolute lowest rung on the ladder for me though. Anything at MGS3 on PS2 level of graphics or above and I really stop caring. Like the thread with the PS3 vs PS4 versions of Watch Dogs. Those screen shots might as well be the same to me for as much as I care, as long as you can get the frame rate to be consistent. It doesn't mean I don't appreciate graphics when they're good, I just mean that after a certain threshold they mean absolutely nothing to me in my decision to purchase/play a game.



B2 comes close....but........

Zelda U and MK8 and 3D World beats it!



No, Ocarina of Time is



for its time

We have not seen enough of Zelda U to make a decision on that and do not even know the full name.

Besides that, including every other Nintendo game ever released, I think these two games are better than anything even Nintendo has ever given us.

 

Agreed?

Xenoblade X^

AC4, and mario kart 8 look much better to me.



Bayonetta 2 is gorgeous and WiiU games in general are the best looking of the 8th gen so far. But as for X, I think the original Xenoblade Chronicles looked better and indeed was the best looking game of the entire generation.



Mario Kart 8, Wind Waker HD, Splatoon, and Zelda U have better graphics IMO.



Check out the 60fps trailer for Bayonetta on Platinum's website. I'm not sure there is anything as good yet on the WiiU.

That is of course a very good reason to post a passive agressive / snarky comment .
