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

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.

 

Not in all cases. Simulators usually gain a lot from looking good from a technical point of view. IMO its the same for shooters and some other genres, like horror-survivors too.

OT: I would say its a tie between Bayonetta 2 and LoZ. Even if we havent seen enough



I think Wind Waker HD looks better than both of them.

If we're talking about "wow factor" here, then none of these games impress anyone who has gamed on PC/PS360 over the last generation.

You're wrong; I've gamed on PS3/360 over the last generation and Xenoblade Chronicles X thoroughly impresses me.



I remember mario sunshine being amazing looking when i played it in 2003
but im still going with 3d world that game is just beautiful.

No. MK8 and Zelda look better. IMO. But they both look good, for sure.



Bayo 2 looks good, but the system has already done prettier with Trine 2 Director's Cut and Mario Kart 8. Art of Balance should also land above it when it hits sometime in the next few months.

X looks better, and its landscapes have a real wow factor, but by the time that launches graphical competition on the system will be even stronger, with the likes of FAST Racing Neo and Yoshi's Wooly World joining the fray.

Wit? Have you seen the treehouse gameplay?

are you talking about this video below, yes it literally looks like a ps2 games sometimes, other then the cutscene nothing is impressive about it, it shouldn't even be mentioned as one of the best looking wiiu games , the models are horrible, and the lighting is clearly not dynamic, shadows don't react to light, and the envoriments all look the same, same repeating sprite based grass and rock textures, and then the end of the video where they showed the cars driving in the city, really did look like a ps2 game.

You clearly haven't played a PS2 game in a long time. The scope and detail of X's environments is beyond PS3, much less PS2.

If you are trying to make a point, don't link to a video with horrible quality. Get it directly from the source.
