Around the Network

PS3: God of War Ascension

Xbox 360: Gears of War Judgement

Wii: Super Mario Galaxy

Multiplat: Crysis 3

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

I only had a PS3 last gen so I dont know about the others but Last of Us should unanimously be voted as the best looking game for PS3 with GTAV as a close second with the most impressive tech last generation.

PS3: Last of Us

X360: Gears of War 3 and Judgement

Wii: LoZ Skyward Sword

Easily my pic for the 360 is... Halo 4.

It also had some terrible graphics though, especially so during multiplayer.

I can't speak for the ps3 and I only had the Wii for about 4-6 months around the launch period so I don't particularity feel like my opinion would hold too much weight there either.

Around the Network

PS3: God of War Ascension or The Last of Us
Xbox 360: Halo 4 or Rise of the Tomb Raider
Wii: Red Steel 2 or Super Mario Galaxy 2

Multiplatform: Grand Theft Auto 5 (say what you will, that game has no business looking as good as it does on last gen consoles)

Playstation 3:

- The Last of Us.

Xbox 360:

- Halo 4.


- Sonic Colors.


- Battlefield 4. - By this point, the game on PC looked a generation ahead of the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. That deferred renderer.

I've always found this pick a curious one; to me it just doesn't look that impressive even by Wii standards, I think I could easily name 20 Wii games that look better.

Oh yeah, that one was a stunner for the Wii, I swear it almost looked like a 360 game at times.
