Graphics improve with each year that goes by and 2016 was no different. There were so many beautiful games that came out, for this list art style doesn’t count, we are only taking in the most raw, technical, graphically intensive games.
Final Fantasy XV
A game that has been in development for so long lives up to today’s graphical standards, even with that sly downgrade we were given. Explore the open world of Final Fantasy and what better way to do it than riding a chocobo, so much to explore, monsters to fight, secrets to discover and you can do all this with vibrant and saturated visuals.
Gears Of War 4
The environments are just breath taking, when playing I loved to just take in the scenery and think about how far gaming visuals have come. Beautiful models, sharp textures and the glowing light from the moon really adds something to this game. If your looking to quench your graphical thirst, this game is for you.
Uncharted 4 A Thief’s End
For some reason Naughty Dog always surprises us with the way they can push PlayStation consoles and give us a visual upgrade every game. Uncharted 4 being only a PS4 exclusive it can still stand and even surpass PC games. Beautiful lighting which leaks into every crack and cave, stunningly realistic rains and so much more, this all takes place in so many different locations.
Battlefield 1 being on this list is no surprise since all the Battlefield games look great. Running on the Frostbite engine this games pushes graphics card to their limits. Beautiful textures and lighting, and being set in the WW1 era this game just feels so unique, with dark, damp, fiery environments looking so visually pleasing.
If you can get this game maxed out on PC, Doom’s graphics are something to be reckoned with. Awesome particle affects, reflection quality, depth of field, gorgeous models, sharp visuals and ruthless attention to detail. Gore has never looked so good.
