Best lighting, large vistas, best effects, detail textures. Only thing on this list that comes close is soul caliber and that's just polycount (which is easy when you only have 2 characters and tightly controlled environments.

I was pooping. It's cool, I got a keyboard in front of me now.

I take that back, Soul Caliber didn't even look that good really. I was remembering with my nostalgia goggles.

Quake 3 could handle curved surfaces in a NURBs-like fashion, which was cool, but Unreal (or UT if you like, same engine really) beat it or was on par in everything else.

I know it came out 2000, but Majoras Mask probably had the best 3D of its generation.

>> No.873783

nah, cut that out. I think Thief 2 deserves a mention, it was a directx 7 game that supported per pixel lighting and the lighting in it looked really good.

Maybe we shouldn't focus on the definitive best looking game of the year (undeniably quake 3), but rather really good looking games that have a unique trait that makes them stand out visually?

File: 17 KB, 496x384, Virtua_Racing_Deluxe_Arcade_004.png [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

Probably one of those flat shaded polygonal arcade games from the early 90's before textures became commonplace. Something like Virtua Racing would be a good candidate.

When they discovered textures, the ugliness factor of 3D shot up by several orders of magnitude and 3D vidya didn't really recover until mid 00's or so.

I almost gave up modern gaming entirely when that happened.

That looks about as good as Quake 3, honestly.

And if you really wanted to say it looked good, you could've picked a screenshot that isn't so fucking dark.
