Horizon Zero Dawn: Best graphic !! Who will be the graphics king later?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Horizon Zero Dawn: Best graphic !! Who will be the graphics king later?

Ahem, Mass effect andromeda...just days away. I don't think it'll beat it outright because of the artistic approach to HZD but it'll sure be a pretty game if screenshots and pre release footage isn't dev BS. Still it has a lot less chance of looking better on ps4 or have the near perfect performance.

I just played Horizon and noticed that the water in pools/rivers ISN'T interactive ..............

Lame for such highly advanced tech in graphics

According to Digital Foundry, water along with interactive vegetation, were most likely compromises that needed to be made in order to sustain a solid 30fps.

GG couldn't squeeze any more juice out.

The irony is... Far Cry on the original Xbox had interactive water and vegetation.



With all of the good looking games that come out these days, it's hard for me to be really impressed by graphics lately. But playing Horizon there have have been many times where I'm just floored and I end up pausing the game and jumping into photo mode. I'm playing on a PS4 Pro with a 4K HDR TV. The HDR really takes the graphics to the next level. It's very immersive. I also like how they included a toggle where you could turn HDR off/on. I play with that sometimes just to see the difference and it's like night and day.



Definitely agree, the game is just fucking amazing. The image quality and the amount of foliage is crazy. The only thing that's bad is the water but even then, crazy IQ.

I wouldn't even call the water bad. It just needs some improvement.

Horizon is probably the best in terms of environments, scale, vegetation. Its the best open world game by far, its like that witcher 3 footage before the downgrade, and all this with no jaggies in 30 fps with no drops, 30 hours and i havent noticed framerate drops. Its impressive. Also it have the most complex enemies , those fucking machines man xD

Uncharted 4 is better in animation, have better faces, better textures and have those little details that are not possible in one open world game.

Kojima will blow our fucking minds with his game in this engine, i have no doubt.

I definitely think it's bad, like ugly bad, not pleasant to look at. I think PS3 games have better water than horizon.

Eh, Battlefront would like a word with you! :P

Nearly every good looking pc game on a decent pc beats the shit out of horizon. But for PS4 only Horizon is going to hold onto this crown for quite some time. I think Uncharted lost legacy is going to.look better than Horizon and God of War will probably also beat it.

The water doesn't look clear enough and it needs to move a little faster, since it does move very naturally other than that I agree it looks good. But I think the PS4 doesn't have the power to improve the game in any way.

Star Citizen makes all games look average. If running on high settings that is.

Definitely not.

What SC achieves on PC is something that's not even an afterthought on consoles (hence the PC exclusivity). In saying that, im not saying console games dont look good. However what SC does good blows anything we have ever seen on a closed system. Eg attention to detail etc. 

 

Iv seen images which look like they have been taken from a high budget CG scifi movie. No joke. No game has made me think that apart from SC.

Nothing lacks in SC. Everything looks good. Including the water.
