[NXGamer] The Best Graphics/Technology of 2021

kingpotato

Ask me about my Stream Deck
I was just about to post how I can't see how Flight Sim isn't there over even the likes of FH5, if we're talking about graphics and technology then it's about as next gen as they come and yet cross gen games are on that list, just seems funny to me.

Flight simulator is the best looking game ever released*°¹

*No, don't fly too close to anything! That doesn't count!

°Wait you can't play it on Xbox and expect PC level graphics, that's not fair!!!

¹But you can visit the whole globe!!! Never mind that 70% of the planet is endless water and also your not supposed to visit places I haven't heard of if you want the really nice graphics. You're playing the game wrong on purpose!!!!!!
 
Only when we get fur coat DLC for Selene.

Is that the visual effects guy? He seems to enjoy fur.

I still cant believe people died on a hill over a game that looks this good.




Who gives a shit about fur when there is no game thats pushing this much shit on screen at this level of fidelity at native 4k 40 fps with 4kcb ray traced reflections.

Maybe Returnal. The character model in that game is fairly unimpressive, but Ratchet?

Back to the topic, why some people really hate Metro Exodus' graphics and why The Ascent is even in the list?

Also a Twitter guy is comparing FH5 with last gen GTS, and some of these show even last gen game can sometimes match or exceed FH5 graphics, so does it really deserve being 3rd on that list?
an example

for guys zooming in 400x on fur, these are pretty clear cut

GT models have always been more detailed than Forza.

Those long posts don't cover that red neck boy

''Show me one pic where the fur is visible''

- Uncharted: Drake's Furtune.
Yes, we all learned a lesson here. Next time we need to ask for screenshots of furless Ratchet from the flat-earthers.
Even better, lets see a picture of Fur-FX-Veteran without fur and with Fur, in Photo Mode.

Its the color palette, but at a glance, you would think its Guardians of The Galaxy.*

* The 2014 movie, that is. Which was rendered in Arnold. Ofcourse that looks even better.

But R&C definitely nails that animation CGI look.

I think Forza deserves to be on the list. We're talking about NXGamer's list for 2021, which I don't think was controversial at all, yet here we are.

Sure we can nitpick tail lights all day, but we could argue that GTS is closed course vs Forza's open world. Forza was out this year and it's a pretty game, it should be in the top 10 hands down. I don't think there's a reasonable person that could say otherwise. Even tech wise, Forza's optimization and streaming is fantastic. The car models, although primary to the game, are not the sole thing carrying its graphical punches. (not inviting a tree close up comparison)

He does that in scape mode and photomode where the graphics gets enhanced like crazy in GT. And he cherry picks cars and parts where its better in GT lol. I know that guy from GTP and he is a full on GT fanboy. I argued with him about the car models differences between photomode and scape mode models vs gameplay models and he agreed at the end. GTS scape mode and photomode are nothing like gameplay while in Forza Horizon 5 outside bokeh and downsampling there are no differences between photomode and gameplay mode. And Forza Horizon is more than the car models only, the environments are one of the best in any open world game and the lighting is one of the best lighting thats not RT. It should be on top of the list, its open world with dynamic tod and weather with insanly detailed world that has 4 seasons that all look good. Its the most dynamic game of the list and should be praised higher.
The variation is unmatched

Is that real? Goes to show how little effort FH devs put in, yikes.

Exactly. Someone gets it! The character should be a LOT closer to the view (ala Gears, HZD or God of War, etc..). They intentionally made the camera so far away from the character to save on frame budget. It's quite obvious. I can see more fur detail in the main character of Biomutant than R&C.


Yup.
Thats rarely the case. In RC it was most likely a design decision because the game is designed to be vertical with climbing and high POI vs gears which is more horizontal. Cameras distance from the character are designed so the player can see and access targets and really has nothing to do with frame rate.

Imagine our authority professional saying R&C camera is a trick to make the graphics feels good.
Now ask him what he things about Fight Simulator graphics with the camera view distance?

The 3D models have very low IQ but when you watch them at miles away it indeed looks good.
