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

My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first. 

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.
