Metroid Prime.


Not only does it look crazy good for a 2002 game, it also runs at a locked 60fps somehow.

Prime 2 has also aged very well - it looks better than the first one, but, by 2004 many games already looked half decent.

REmake on GC.

Yup. Those pre-rendered backgrounds are still phenomenal honestly. They could have made it pass for a game on the 7th Gen and nobody would have asked questions.

Don't exagerate man.

Metroid Prime and RE4 for sure.

The later Virtua Fighters don't look bad.

I got FFXII TZA for Switch, and it honestly doesn't look bad, and it only got an upscaling for PS4 and Switch. Nobody will ever mistake it for 8th gen, that said.

Prior to last generation? Not a damn thing that I can think of. For last generation I think some of the later titles in the generation like Halo 4 hold up very well, especially when running at higher resolutions. Seriously, Halo 4 had some absolutely fantastic models and animations for the human characters. The facial animations in particular were some of the best of last generation. Crysis also holds up extraordinarily well, especially considering it's now 12 years old.



Rage is another strong candidate now that I think about it; its stylized, but still semi-realistic, and the fact it's a silky 60fps helps a lot



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