Forums - Gaming Discussion - Best last gen (console) graphics 2005-2008

When we talk about the best looking games of last gen, pretty much every example is from the later years of it; which is only natural as engines and tools improved over time and devs got better at extracting maximum performance and visual payoff from the hardware.

But what about the early years of Gen 7? What game(s) from 2005-2008 look the best in your opinion, and what about them impresses you?



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Metal Gear Solid 4. Gears Of War 2. Oblivion. Those are some of my picks on the run.

From what I've played, Dead Space comes to my mind.



GTA 4, MGS 4



Call of Duty 4.
Uncharted
Ninja Gaiden II

I was very impressed by how good BioShock Infinite looked.

Unfortunately, I wasn't impressed by anything else about it.

Edit: actually never mind, I'm dumb. 2005-2008, hmm.... I, don't know. Oh well.



That's a tricky one, because early 7th gen games have aged pretty horribly in general.

I'd say Crysis and Burnout Paradise.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Pretty sure Crysis didn't come to consoles until long after 2008. :P
