Best looking games (technical graphics)

This list is for technical graphics only, not for cpu effects, art design or how it looks okay in motion yet not for screenshots. As a pc gamer, if I was to take a screenshot, not a bullshot, a real screenshot at the real resolution, meaning pc games will be at 1080p with a lot of anti aliasing, also with a life bar and hud, using a program and post it on the forum. I would say that from my list in that exact order is how the screenshots will look from best to worst. I see things differently, however that's my opinion and I stand by it because I have an entire thread in the pc forum dedicated to pc screenshots to prove my point. I like realism, textures and normal mapped detailed articulation and technical graphics the most. Also i'm making a list simply for this quest feature on the site for an achievement. Thank you for viewing my list.

Cool list, You've listed 2 Crysis games and not put Far Cry, that sort of surprised me, same with Black Ops.
 
Where do you stand with GTA IV, Aliens Vs Predator, Mirror's Edge, Stalker and R.U.S.E.?

@HitmanAgent47: Pretty good list and all but don't you think Metro 2033 should be way higher up though?Like past MW2?Because seriously I never thought any COD was good looking(besides from COD4 of course)They are all blurry textures and jaggy edges.I guess no one notices though when they are running super fast all over the map.How else could they have 60 FPS on console?Looke at BFBC2 great looking games not 60FPS on console and I rather have that.60FPS isn't even a really big deal.

Great list but I think Modern Warfare 2 should be much lower.

@FlamingHobo: pc version looks quite good, the console version is only like half modern warfare 2 graphics btw compared to the pc version. I have posted screenshots comparing both before, since the game is realistic, I choose to keep it up there because none of you console gamers will buy the pc version and know what i'm talking about. It's the same with crysis 2, while it may look similar, the pc version is superior looking screenshotwise. I stated it was the pc version only, I hope it carrys some sort of weight.

@HitmanAgent47: If you could give me a link to the comparative screenshot thread, I'd appreciate it. I bought Modern Warfare 2 for the 360, as well as most of my games, because the majority of my friends do not have a gaming capable PC, as much as they'd like one.

@FlamingHobo: alright no problem let's do this. My screenshot is going to be the ones that doesn't say gamespot or not the top one. I hope you have a 1080p monitor, you can always just save it a resize it on your desktop. If you don't have a 1080p monitor, then I can always scale back and add another set of screenshots, that doesn't say gamespot or eurogamer or anything else. I defend modern warfare 2 on the pc that it deserves to be here on the list and console gamers are ignorant of how detailed and sharp it is. I don't know why they took down some of the earlier screenshots on ign, gamespot or every other site, but i'll work with what I can. One game is more clear, look at the guns and detail and texture quality, the console version is so inferior, yet you begin to think the pc version is the same. I have played the ps3 demos of call of duty games, it's really blurry.

I can't find anymore for now, there was tons, but it's all deleted or something from major sites. There should be a difference and console technology doesn't render this game well enough. Your version has basically no details.

That's a real startling improvement. Thanks for sharing. I still stand by my opinion that Modern Warfare 2 should be lower on the list, but not as low as I initially would have said it should be.
