Are you a Wizard?
which game am i supporting now? if you mean dishonored, i was not making a judgement one way or the other as i havent played it. it could be great. i will find out when it goes on sale

as to the rest, asscreed, cod, and borderlands were at best okay. the journey was good but best... no.

How the fuck is Dishonored on the best graphics list?! The models look like they were made with less than a thousand pollies, the textures look like they were made at a resolution of 64x64, and the engine (Unreal that is) looks completely un-modified and outdated for such a huge studio. Fuck, it's pretty much a shitty bioshock clone but with poor visuals and as many plot holes as a block of swiss cheese.

I bet huge sweeping generalizations make you feel superior and much more intelligent than you are.

However, if you were more observant than a sea urchin, you'd notice that art direction is also a part of (and the most important part of, IMO) graphics. Efficiency, style, fidelity and a unified theme are all part of the equation.

Stylized games and games made to look realistic are no less graphical than the other. You simply and very obviously think graphics is all about the latter.

But stylized games always age better than their "photorealistic" counterparts. Just look how shitty Crysis 2 looks already. It's all a nice set of smoke and mirrors the moment it comes out. With time, the illusion fades.

I've had recurring nightmares
That I was loved for who I am
And missed the opportunity
To become a better man
