    Becoming the console-exclusive gamer lately, I was wondering everyone's opinion regarding graphics and console games.

    I've been playing Uncharted 3 and while some spots are truly amazing, I can't help but feel Uncharted 2 was much more graphically superior. The gameplay is also getting stale to me, as much as I've been looking forward t Uncharted 3, as much as I loved 2, I'm really disappointed with it so far.

    Batman Arkham City looks like it has a lot of life to it, I enjoyed arkham asylum, skyrim looks fantastic - how well is battlefield 3 visually on consoles? I mean yes, I know "PC OWNZ AND BLOWZ IT OUTS OF TEH W@T3R!!!" but as far as consoles go...how does it fair?

    What's everyones game of choice when considering graphics and being the best looking game on a system.

    Forza Motorsport 4 on Xbox 360.

    Not even a dedicated computer junkie can deny the insane amount of detail running at 60 FPS in Autovista mode on such old hardware. Look it up if you have any doubts.

    Id have to agree with uncharted, resistance 3 looks really good in places aswell, most of the PS3 exclusives looks decent.

    Gears 3 looks pretty good aswell but i havent finished it yet as getting a little bored of it.

    I'll have to look into this, how does it handle gameplay wise? Is it a drifting game or are the controls tighter with just straight up old school style racing?

    I'd have to say personally, God of War 3 is the most visually impressive game I've yet to see on a console. Uncharted 2 is #2 on my list.

    especially the first 20 minutes with those huge monster battles. Some of that stuff in that game rivaled and even surpassed anything I have seen on PC - even when I had 2x460's in sli with an i7 and was pushing everything to the max, Gow 3 was just insanely impressive.

    Unfortunately they blew their load in those first 20 minutes and everything else was fun and gorgeous, but just not as up to par as those first minutes.

    Uncharted Series, havent finished 3 yet but UC2 was stunning.

    Killzone 2/3, this game has great lighting and atmosphere one of the best I've seen, textures on some areas were amazing.

    God of War 3 - Nuff Said

    Resistance 2 and 3

    GT5

    360

    Gears of War 3 - this console was made for this engine or is it the other way around. Looks good.

    I tried the killzone 2 demo - it looked impressive, my issue were the controls, I just couldn't get used to them, nor could I aim for sh*t. I still need a kb and mouse for fps games. :bang:

    God of War 3 was truly a cinematic experience. Heavy Rain is also up there.

    Killzone 2/3, and mass effect 2 look prety damn good, few games if any do the facial animations as good as ME2.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that feels this way. I'm about 1/2 way through and I feel most of the levels are dark and boring. I feel like I'm always fighting the same enemies (guys in black suits). I'm still having fun with it and will finish it, but Uncharted 2 is far superior.

    These are my top picks as well. I feel the PS3 is a more powerful system in terms of graphics.

    ^

    IT is, it's CPU & GPU are superior. RAM is one of it's problems.

    It is the best simulation car game I've ever played on a console. Superb physics with all cars treated equally. It can be as hard or as easy as you want it to be. Complete simulation, completely assisted or any combination.

    Drifting is a big part of the Forza community, along with drag racing and people that just log on to cruise and enjoy the graphics.

    I generally play ps exclusives(with some other games I had on pc) and I would say Killzone 2 and killzone 3 have a pretty awesome graphics and wish more ps3 games looks like the Killzone series do.
