The end of the year is traditionally a time of summaries. One of them has just been published by the popular Digital Foundry channel, whose creators have selected the most visually impressive games of 2022.
Best looking games of 2022 according to Digital Foundry
Digital Foundry specializes in analyzing the technical aspects of video game graphics, so this list was compiled from that perspectiveAnd not, for example, according to the beautiful visual style.
RTX Portal stands out mainly due to its excellent lighting system, making great use of ray tracing capabilities. In turn, Callisto Protocol not only has the quality of execution of the Digital Foundry crew, but despite the use of Unreal Engine 4.0, the game offers very unique graphics and deviates from this technology more than other titles. .
In the end, there could only be one winner, and the game that was named the graphically best game of 2022 was Horizon Forbidden West. The game’s level of detail, as well as the fact that the developers managed to fix all the visual flaws, such as poor character animations during conversations and a disappointing lighting system, impressed the people at Digital Foundry. The game looks great on the PS4, but the PlayStation 5 version looks pretty good, and the developers don’t seem bothered by having to release the older console in parallel.
Other Most Visually Impressive Games of 2022
In addition to these top three, the video also mentions some of the most impressive games of the past year:
- Dying Light 2
- Need for Speed Unbound
