What's the best looking game on the PS4 right now?

IMO Zero Dawn Horizon

From what I've seen, it's absolutely Horizon. Madden also looks amazing (I'd almost say it looks better than the real thing), but it takes a pretty noticeable performance dip when you run it at 4K/HDR.

Destiny 2 is actually really good looking.

I would agree on Horizon if they didn't do this horrendous dynamic brightness adjustment (the whole image gets darker if you look at a bright thing, or brighter if you look at a dark thing). It made night time in the new DLC borderline unplayable on an HDR TV because of the dark sky/snow combo meaning the brightness was giving me headaches.

Probably Horizon and Gran Turismo Sport. At times GT:S looks real, especially with its brilliant lighting.

Uncharted looks amazing, and Paragon is great on a Pro.

I prefer the look of Uncharted Lost Legacy to Horizon, but they're both really impressive. I haven't played GT Sport.

Cool, looks like the first game I played on the Pro is the best looking at the moment (Horizon). It's breathtaking, really. I can't stop taking screenshots. Gotta check out Uncharted too.

A lot of people are naming games that have the most graphics but my picks for the best looking PS4 games are Transistor and Pyre. I don't know how they stack up on a PS4 Pro but both of those games are truly beautiful.

If you haven't tried Infamous I'd recommend that as well.

Uncharted 4 or Horizon Zero Dawn.

@blackheronblue: Honestly they both look great. Second Son or First Light. If you want a longer game get Second Son, First Light is a pretty short standalone DLC. Rise of the Tomb Raider looks pretty good as well.

Haven't played Horizon no my pro yet but AC:Origins looks stunning on Pro with HDR.

Preferences aside Horizon blows Lost Legacy out of the water from a purely technical standpoint.

Keep in mind that Horizon is an open world game. It's easier to create great graphics in a linear single player adventure because you can limit what's on the screen at any given time. Even then, Horizon has better graphics than Lost Legacy and it maintains a solid 30 fps. How they achieved that is a mystery and/or a miracle.

Battlefront II looks really, really good. Too much HUD taking up space for my liking, but the environment especially looks outstanding

I’m on 1080p and have barely noticed a difference. I think most benefits only enable when you output 4K HDR and don’t downscale possibly because of HDR not really existing in 1080.

Uncharted multiplayer was enhanced to match the already great fidelity of the single player, really had no biz being lower res in the first place considering they’re smaller, closed off levels, but I’ll take it.
