These two by far, with the 2002 remake of Resident Evil being on top.Came here to rep Half Life 2.
Yeah, it's gotten some minor HDR upgrades from the Orange Box update, but go back and load up that game and be shocked it came out the same month as Halo 2. If you want to be even more amazed, give yourself a replay with Half Life 2: Update. It's a free community update on Steam that fixes bugs that have accrued over the years and ups the quality of the lighting a bit while keeping the same textures and models. Was running it at 1080p downscaled and it still is quite the looker. (Screenshots are from Half Life 2: Update. Click to see full size.)
I think this is the most used out-of-context gif used across all of Gaf/Era.
Absolutely. Anytime I play Quake or Quake 2, I turn off all filtering. I absolutely love the clean point-filtered look. Arcane Dimensions is incredible.
I love the look of POP 2008 but to be honest, it has subtle cel-shading.
Even VF4 on PS2 (2002) looks amazing with increased resolutions
I'm definitely blind, I didn't read the last part of OP lol
I’ve been replaying Metroid Prime at 4K with absolutely no other enhancements and that game still looks absolutely amazing.
Honestly Destiny 2 doesn't look that much more impressive than Destiny 1, so I would have said D1 is more impressive in that aspect.I was playing some more destiny 2 today (as you do) and in the middle of a vex offensive in the new expansion realized that this game on PC looks fucking incredible still. And i dont think time is going to make it look any worse. I think games have gotten to a point that they will always look good. This isnt like gta 3 days or anything. Shit just looks good.
What other games do you think visually will stand the test of time?
I mean 3d games of course. sorry.
Silent Hill 3I think this is the most used out-of-context gif used across all of Gaf/Era.
Like I've never seen someone post it and actually type anything else to identify what the fuck it's from and I still don't know. It's like the guy in the gif is shaking his head at me saying "You better not ask."
