Unplayed 4 – Removal Graph (Image : Sony)
GameCentral readers discuss the most impressive video game graphics they have ever seen from Batman : Knight of Arkham in Skyrimu.
The question for Hot Topic this week was suggested by Isha’s reader, who asked which video game graphics are most impressed. Was this only achieved through technical progress, or did artistic design and camera work also play a role?
Most of the response comes from this generation, especially from Rockstar and Sony games, but also from some older games with more unique graphics, including Target Degree graphics, which stand the test of time better than most attempts at photorealism.
Say what you think of Sony and its current formula or modesty in PlayStation 5, but they had the best graphics of all generations, and I see no reason to think that that will change. I would almost say that Tsushima’s mind is the best part, because she was great in Thursday’s screening (although I’m not sure if she’s that interesting).
God of war, the miracle of Spider-Man, Zero Dawn Horizon… they were all big, and the last of us, part two, is big, too. He still has a long way to go to beat Uncharted 4, although I think it’s the best Naughty Dog’s and probably the most stable and solid game ever made.
Many games have good landscapes and backgrounds, and Uncharted 4 has them too, but what makes that impression is the way people look. You could swear that you watch a movie half the time, and I don’t think a game like Uncharted 4 comes close to that. The whole section in Madagascar is great.
As we strive to be innovative with
, I think Forza games have always been among the most beautiful games in the world, and I’m very disappointed that there don’t seem to be any plans for a new project this year. I’m sure one of them is in development, and perhaps it will be the first exclusive Xbox series, because the games have always been able to show the best Xbox graphics.
The lack of an exclusive Xbox series has seriously prevented me from getting it this year, although I hope there will be an explanation that will make it more reasonable.
Gears 5 is another such game, and I can’t wait to see what it will look like on the new console, as a special version of the Xbox X series is coming out. If Microsoft’s new console is the most powerful, I expect that it has the most graphically impressive games of the next generation.
. I can still find Batman: Arkham Knight is a very impressive game, even though it seems to have been released half a lifetime ago. It was a fairly early game of its kind, but it managed to have a big open world and very convincing characters without any presentation problems. I don’t even remember patches or technical problems at an early stage.
Things like that have become very rare in this genre, but Arkham Knight not only felt complete when he came out, he also felt complete, and I’m sure that, despite his few gambling problems, has contributed to the joy of the game.
They felt that the people who did this knew what they were doing. They felt safe in their hands and were ready to enjoy the game. I hope he lives up to the same ideals in Batman’s next game. Given that they haven’t done so for a long time, that should be the case.

I think this generation gave us great graphics. I was one of the first to adopt this generation and I remember being knocked down by Killzone Shadow Fall when I got my first PlayStation 4.
Since then I would say that Red Dead Redemption 2 is probably the best game I’ve ever played. Slightly closer to the beginning, near the town of Valentine, where a hand fight takes place in the mud, and it looks impressive.
From an exclusive PlayStation 4 perspective, Uncharted 4 is probably the best. A little piece of Madagascar, that’s great. The God of War and Spider-Man Marvel are also worth mentioning. If we look at some of the upcoming recordings of the second part of The Last Of Us, we can assume that a new champion will soon appear in town.
The Xbox on the other hand has Forza Horizon 4, which again belongs to the best. I was also impressed with Zelda: The breath of wild sweetness. It is clear that change is detrimental, but the artistic director often compensates.
Resident Evil 2 is worth mentioning, but I personally believe that no matter how good the graphics are in games with dark interiors and tight spaces, it will never be as impressive as the wide open worlds with changing weather conditions and beautiful landscapes.
It is not the
scene that is cut for me, the gameplay is the first, but the graphics that impress me are in Bioshock 1. I started playing Xbox 360 in 2008 and it was the first AAA HD game I played on my new 1080i HDTV. I used to play with Wii and PlayStation 2 on an HDTV.
No spoilers, the cut scene started, and I looked at it, and then the cut scene still seems to be going on, but there’s nothing I can do about it. I couldn’t understand why it didn’t do anything, so I moved the analogue controller to the controller and suddenly (!) I realised that the graphics were so good for me that I thought I was still in the scene and I was really going to play the game! I couldn’t believe how good the HD graphics were.
This was mentioned recently in the Inbox/Hot Topic section, but when I saw Bad Influence in the 1990s and they showed me the clip for Super Mario 64, I was amazed at the graphics, and I had never seen a video game based on Mega Drive and Amiga that looked so good.
When I first saw Sonic the Hedgehog 1 on Mega Drive at GamesMaster of Bad Influence, I forgot it was pretty impressive for that time, too, because of the bright colours, the great graphics and the horizontal scrolling, as I come from the Amstrad CPC 464 with a green screen.
When I got the Mega Drive with Sonic 1 and the California Games at Christmas, which I didn’t know I would get, I could try it out.
Uncharted 4 also had great graphics, I loved the way it came out of PlayStation 3 games that looked a little more like cartoons (by force!), and then the graphics in Uncharted 4 made the characters more realistic. I can’t wait to play the last of us, part 2.
For the new generation, I hope they can impress me as much as some of these games and surprise me as well.
Raise the bar
For me it must be Red Dead Redemption 2, the 20 minute opening of this game in the mountains with the blizzard blew me away.
The footsteps in the snow, the way you put each foot down and the snow falling from the trees when you comb them, made me think: This is what every game should look like. It set the bar so high for me that no other game was so high.

One of my favorite games in the series is probably the original breakthrough in graphic design for The Elder Scrolls 4 : Oblivion and Elders of Scroll 5: Skyrim. When I played on PlayStation for two years and saw the game’s graphics getting better and better and the textures becoming more realistic, the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 just drove me crazy.
In an open world, everything has to be just as good to keep diving. Forgot it for me. The only bad design or seemingly hasty part of the game was the usual design of the face of an off-game character that they (fortunately) recorded on Skyrim.
I have literally lived and explored in such a real world, with such depth. Skyrim has raised the bar again. Fruits, flowers, cutlery, cups, pots, etc… – All these little things are just as well thought out as the huge world around them. The clothes, the figurines, the jewellery and the weapons were beautiful.
These games came on the market some time ago and since then, of course, long ago, they have been beaten in the field of graphic quality. Two exceptional games with many timeless hours (and I mean many hours) live my fantasy in fantastic worlds that are among my favorite games.
