I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

I realy dont understand why everybody say this world is so beatiful. It realy isn't. Compared to other games the Gfx in GW2 is mediocre. Many of you say that Gfx is a matter of taste, but i tend to disagree on that. If you say that GW2 have better graphics than TSW then that is not a matter of taste, it is is simply wrong. Gw2 have nice Art direction, and the game look nice to some degree, but to say that it is the best MMO on the marked is just plain wrong and nothing but fanboiism. The GW2 world have good looking details and im sure it is created with love, but it is not as good as some of you say it is. Isnt it direct X 9 also? it is 2012 now. thats a bit old.

You sound like you're making a point until you said the word "wrong". You basically just said everyones opinion is wrong. Guild Wars 2 is an incredible looking game. It doesnt matter if game X uses tesselation, or game Y has more bloom than GW2; the fact remains that it looks incredible. Just because The Secret world has some tesselated walk ways doesn't mean that "visually" it is more appealing. Personally, I found its graphics to be rather dull. The colour pallete and art style just didnt sit well with me. The kind of washed out greys and monochromatic environments tended to drain me. The art direction combined with the effects it achieves create some very nice visual effects.

The DX9 argument is old and moot. What you fail to realize is that DX9 is just as powerful as DX11. DX11 has a few nifty features, but with intelligent coding the same features can be achieved. There are already Direct X 9 tesselation shades created as mods for certain engines. This argument is like saying My car is better because it has a back up camera, It's the same exact car with the same gas mileage, but it has a Back up camera. DX11 did nothing more than take things developers wanted in DX9 and added them to the default library.

So yes, Guild wars 2 is most likely the best looking 'new' game on the market. It looks incredible both graphically and artistically.

My, but you have an overinflated sense of self-importance. If you don't think it is the most beautiful world that you have encountered, then fine, but don't attempt to dictate to others what they can and can't find aesthetically pleasing. Personally, I find the likes of Ryzom with its ageing graphics to be better looking than most modern MMO's. That same mindset applies to Guild Wars 2. Art direction takes precedence over cutting-edge graphics ANY day for me, and there is nothing wrong with that. Arguing otherwise is futile because your opinion is only that - an opinion, which to me is as "simply wrong" as our opinions are to you.

Lornar's pass is simply amazing. It has such a wonderful sense of scale. It really feels like you are traversing mountains. Besides GW2 only Skyrim gave me this feeling.

 I absolutely agree.  The attention to detail amazes me and this is the first game where I actually stop to take screenshots on a fairly regular basis.

The point is that I dont think graphics quality is a matter of subjective tase. It is a matter of objective truth. There are many that say that the game they are playing are the best looking game on the marked, just because it's their favorite game. Because of fanboyism pepole wants their game to be the best no matter what, im not saying everyone does this, but I have a impression that many do. GW2 has very nice art direction, I do agree on that. I think the developers have hold back on the graphics so that the game would run on as many computers as possible.  A game can look artistically good, and at the same time have mediocre graphics.

Very nice thread. Love all the pictures and seeing the adventures folks are having. I too am falling for the beautiful game world. The exploration factor alone will keep me coming back to GW2 for a long time.

Happy adventures all!

Why is this guy arguing with himself? I'm so confused.

The game world is very beautiful and amazing looking I run my game a mid settings and it looks excellent here some of my screens.

Hope you enjoy.


To me I enjoy gaming I dont play to be uber I play to have fun. If a game is not fun to me guess what I move on and play something else till I find one that is. When I find that great game and not sure if in my life time there will be one I hope it has everything I want in an mmo.

This argument is like saying My car is better because it has a back up camera, It's the same exact car with the same gas mileage, but it has a Back up camera. DX11 did nothing more than take things developers wanted in DX9 and added them to the default library.

So yes, Guild wars 2 is most likely the best looking 'new' game on the market. It looks incredible both graphically and artistically.

 

 

The point is that I dont think graphics quality is a matter of subjective tase. It is a matter of objective truth. There are many that say that the game they are playing are the best looking game on the marked, just because it's their favorite game. Because of fanboyism pepole wants their game to be the best no matter what, im not saying everyone does this, but I have a impression that many do. GW2 has very nice art direction, I do agree on that. I think the developers have hold back on the graphics so that the game would run on as many computers as possible.  A game can look artistically good, and at the same time have mediocre graphics.

Your point still makes very little sense as does this paragraph. People don't think the game looks good, because it's their favorite. They think it is the best looking game out, because it is aesthetically pleasing to them. Their may be no super high end Crysis 3 effects going on, but the game presents itself very well. It is not an objective truth; Honestly there are people that think Crysis 1, 2, and 3 look like horse shit compared to Battlefield 3. Yes on a technical scale other games are more "advanced" than Guild Wars 2, but Guild Wars 2 is still a beautiful game.

Your argument is like saying that a painting in an art gallery is 'ugly' because it was painted with oils. Clearly the painting is a work of art and pure genious and the artist's knowledge of the use of oil far surpasses anyone elses, but because it's not watercolor(your favorite) then it's a pile of steaming poo.

Basically you are arguing that game's graphics are objective while giving a subjective opinion. Very strange.

Edit: by your logic this picture should have the best graphics ever:

The active effects are ScreenSpaceAmbientOcclusion(SSAO), Global Illumination, Subsurface Scattering, Realtime reflections, per pixel surface lighting, tesselation(though its not very visible), high cache texture filtering, crepuscular rays[god rays](though not visible either), and depth of field. I rendered this in CInema 4D and made it in like 5 minutes. These should be the best looking cubes ever, well by your logic anyhow.
