Good looking games

#1 Posted by ectoplasma (960 posts) -

So after 4 years I upgraded my HD 4890 to a HD 7870 XT. I'm looking for some games with good graphics now. Only thing I can think of is Crysis 3 and Far Cry 3. Are there any other good looking games you can recommend? Wanna try out my newly found graphics power ;).

Max Payne 3 and Tomb Raider, especially the latter.

Sleeping Dogs. Hitman Absolution. Every Crysis game.

Dear Esther

Sleeping Dogs

Modded Up Skyrim and GTA 4

Dustforce

Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Tomb Raider

The two Ys games (They're not technically impressive but artistically they look great).

I actually have Deus Ex: Human Revolution and haven't played it yet, so I'm gonna check it out. Not very interested in Tomb Raider and I thought in the Quick Look the graphics didn't look especially good. Prolly I'll get Crysis. Not too stoked for it but it really looked good. Or I just wait for Bioshock.

I've got Tomb Raider on the 360 and think it looks incredible. I think the PC version (minus the dumb tressfx hair) would look incredible but to each their own. I'm sure Bioshock Infinite will look better but Bioshock 2 looks pretty great on PC if your interested.

Dwarf Fortress. Or Witcher 2 I guess, they look about the same.

Ohoho, I see what you did there.

Skyrim with the official hi-res texture pack looks pretty good, too.

Battlefield 3 still is amazing, same with Borderlands 2. The 2 Trine games. Arkham City.

Word. ARMA III will be a real test of your horsepower, although if realistic combat is a turn-off stay well away.

Battlefield 3 still looking great, and if you get the Premium there is so much content to enjoy.

The new Tomb Raider game looks pretty sweet on ultra. Also can't say anything bad about Sleeping Dogs with the HD resolution pack.
