What's the most graphically impressive game of the 5th generation?

>> No.6558720

Albiet 3D was in its infancy, there were some still visually stunning sprite based games made for the PS1, I think that a thread with various gifs is still up

perhaps Vagrant Story or Conker's Bad Fur Day

>> No.6558767

depends what kind of graphics you like, 64 looks like it's trying too hard to do more contemporary rendering effects but struggles at it and they just don't look very good, so I prefer seeing what devs did with systems like the saturn and ps1.

Pre-rendered backgrounds and FMVs found in PS1 games were the most beautiful graphics of the day. You can absolutely find moments in N64 titles that match up, but no whole game can compete with Final Fantasy VII-IX.

That being said, N64 games often look better rendered in HD via emulator.

Its pretty impressive how much graphical improvement developers were able to get out of the consoles of this era. Early and late PS1 games look completely different. If I was completely ignorant of the PS1 I would have assumed they released an extra performance improving attachment like the 32X or the expansion pack to get extra out of it.

ps1, n64. saturn was never impressive.

>> No.6559938

It was impressive that the characters were all one piece and not chopped up like most ps1 games. Loads of attention to detail on the characters too like moving hair, breath, animated facial expressions. The special effects like spells and pyro were even better than the Final Fantasy games I think.

>> No.6560716

The graphics in Fighters MegaMix was pretty impressive on the Sega Saturn. I liked the graphics in GoldenEye on the N64, I was completely blown away by it. But by far the best graphics of the 5th generation goes to Metal Gear Solid for PS1. I mean holy crap there was a lot of effort put into it.

>> No.6560748

Silent Hill or Vagrant Story.

>> No.6560787

Chrono Cross by far

>> No.6560923

While probably not the best looking game of the Generation, I find Last Bronx on the Saturn to be impressive because its 60fps in High Res mode with good looking character models. But the big one is they finally got the synchronization between the 2D VDP2 layers just right which made the illusion pretty convincing for the time:


>> No.6561050

yeah Spyro 3 is definitely a strong candidate for being one of the best looking PS1 games

yea, it's both technically impressive, with it's texture and model LOD (a pretty new concept at the time), smooth vertex animations, and just excellent art design all round (even ignoring the tech, it just looks good)

Posting upscaled screenshots should be a bannable offense. That's not what the game looks like.

>> No.6563731

Too much texture. Megaman Legends the second knew how to make a psx game. Too much texture makes it grainy. Obviously the first is too basic in style but the second was perfection of the potential the hardware had.

So says I.

>> No.6563736

well excuse me, it's not easy to find screenshots that haven't been upscaled at least, i already tried to avoid texture smoothing and things as well
nobody seems to want to take 320x240 png screenshots

take crash 1 for example, looks amazing.. and runs at 512x240
