When was the last time the graphics of a game surprised you?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - When was the last time the graphics of a game surprised you?

Would it be ok to also mention the first time graphics really surprised us?



Some days I just blow up.

Define surprised.

Well, I mean when they defied my expectations of what could be done on certain game systems, like when I first saw Donkey Kong Country as a kid. :)

Well, at least Anthem's reveal gave us a sneak peak of what we can expect early next-gen Frostbite games to look like. Same goes for Witcher 3, I suspect that Witcher 4 (which seems to be coming in 2021) will look at least as good as Witcher 3 looked pre-downgrade. 

Eh, you will see that those games, even in there pre-released states, will be behind even some early next gen titles. Hell, there are games released, in my eyes, that look better.

I certainly won't complain if early next-gen games look even better than pre-downgrade Anthem and Witcher 3.

I see if going by what could be done on a system I'll put down the the last several times, note to everyone I'm going purely by visual output.

Switch - Doom
PS3 - Last of Us
PS3 - Killzone 2
360 - Gears of War
PC - Crysis
PS2 - Black
PS2 - GOW
GC - Metroid Prime
GC - RE4

I guess I should also include Star Fox on Super NES, along with Super Mario 64 and Luigi's Mansion.

I've had several of these moments. I remember being in awe of the opening mission in Call of Duty 2 (360 launch title). After that, it was Heavenly Sword. The facial animations and graphical quality were great. After that, Valkyria Chronicles and Uncharted 2.

There wasn't much in between, but the next would be God of War?
