REmake 2. The character models look incredible and they managed to update the original game while staying true to it.

I can't play REmake 2 because my PC can't run it very well, but yeah, based on what I saw, it was very good.

i recall when i upped by gpu from a HD 7970 to a GTX 970 and The Division on pc was running at full 60fps it looked incredible for sure



...not much time to post on here anymore, used to be some good ol times on VGchartz...

Playstation Fan for life... PSN: Skeeuk - XBL: SkeeUK - Steam/Uplay/Origin: Skeeuk

Miss the VGCHARTZ of 2008 - 2013...

The last time? How Square Enix managed to recreate the good old 16bit RPG charme with Octopath Traveler to the T.

A Mario title, which doesn't try to look realistic, gets a free pass about such inconsistencies, but when it tries to be realistic, my mind treats them like that in every way, too. And that makes most AAA games fail miserably. Most games which try to get a realistic look fall right into the uncanny valley for me and look more repulsing than anything else for me. It also makes me spot logical/physical inconsistencies way faster than normal.

Hence why HZD for instance was absolutely unappealing to me the moment I saw a trailer. Humanity devolved back basically to cavemen, but use high-tech, very high-maintenance bows with specially engineered strings, which rot after a handful of years under ideal conditions? And hunt dinosaur-like robots, which survived all that time without any maintenance? Way too unrealistic for my mind, next!

I have the same problem with some movie tropes, like their explosions. I know that's not how they really would work, and it kills my suspension of disbelief for a moment.

Moss. Can't believe it looks so good on the low res psvr. That game was a visual treat from start to finish. So awesome you can walk through the sets and literally take a peak behind the curtains.

The trailer for the new Beyond Good and Evil looks like something for the ages...just saying..

I think it was either with Super Mario Odyssey or Breath of The Wild. I couldn't believe the Switch was capable of rendering all that.

Huh? Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey?

Not Red Dead 2?

Not Horizon Zero Dawn?

Not GTAV?

Not Witcher 3?

Not Fallout 4?

C'mon man... Take off your Nintendo glasses... Breath of the Wild/Mario was not "surprising" on either rendering OR visual fidelity... Least of all when you compare them to the games above...

Hehe, I was thinking the same thing. I think he's confusing the hardware with games.

I've played every game you've listed and I agree with Breath of the Wild. None of the other even compare to experience and impact of Breath of the Wild. Must be the art style from Nintendo.  

All the game you've listed above have better Visual fidelity but there always something in polish and performance that break the immersion.

Actually, I was very underwhelm with Horizon Zero dawn and Fallout 4 when it came to graphics.

Hellblade. And not for nothing but Halo 5.

I was thinking Halo 5 as well, especially when played on the X1X.

The game has weird visual things like pop in, low fps on distant models, etc. But the assets look fantastic and its a 60 fps game.

I'm hoping for a 9th gen port or patch that really fixes all the visual quirks.

Different era of gaming:
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening on gameboy
SMB3 on NES
Donkey kong on SNES
Chrono Trigger on SNES
Legend of Zelda: Orcarina of Time N64
World of Warcraft on PC
Mario 64 when it first came out.
Xenoblade on Wii.
Tomb Raider Remastered -Xbox one
Sea of thieves really wowed.
Breath of the wild is current my favorite game of all times so that's #1 right now.

Really enjoy the world of Watch Dog 2 and Assassin's creed Odyssey on Xbox One X.

Haven't played enough of Red dead 2 to make a call on that game.
