    Basically, I've played Crysis and Metro 2033, but are there any other games that have beautiful graphics? I'm really looking to BF3, it looks fun and graphics are superb!

    So, what other games have nice graphics that literally make you say wow?!!? :)

    I really can't think of anything that is better looking.
    Since you've mentioned Crysis and Metro, I don't know what else.

    Maybe Shogun 2 in full 1080p and DX11?

    Actually Portal 2 really blew me away, I wasn't expecting how epically nice it would look.

    Usually first person shooter games have the edge here but i have to say that latest NFS Hot Pursuit looks incredibly nice. You just have to enable MLAA to get rid of the jaggies.

    You can't. You don't have Radeon.

    so his 2 6850's in crossfire aren't radeon? (sorry - i thought that guy was the op)

    with his nvidia cards he can just set up application specific normal AA from the driver menu anyway, won't slow down nfs HP too much having 2-4-maybe even 8xq AA

    Avatar maxed, Assasins Creed DX10 maxed. Also helps if you can play games at high, high resolution. You would be surprised how many mediocre looking games can end up looking stunning.

    I know it gets alot of flack but seriously Crysis 2 on the maximum settings at 2048x1536 looks stunning and easily pees on most DX9 titles.

    It just looks like oblivion with texture packs in the first one.

    Crysis/ Crysis Warhead with custom config (settings much higher than in-game max), I play MWLL with such config, and its jaw droppingly nice. Lighting effect can be set just right instead of super bloom.

    Even with texture mod Oblivion doesn't have that level of Parallax mapping :rolleyes:.
    The texture is far better though. pretty much the only game other than Crysis that have 4096x4096 texture. So it more equivalent to dx9 Crysis.

    Yes, they do. Trust me I've spent 10s of hours tweaking my custom set of textures on oblivion. I'm eying this thing top to bottom and it's just not showing me anything impressive. The lighting isn't even that great. The most notable feature is the biped, the rest is "meh".

    I wonder when they will use the potential of dx11 cards,i remember when i first played Far Cry,that was a big change.

    Reaching your left retina.
    I think OGE (Oblivion Graphics Extender) added Parallax mapping or some other mod added parallax or something that looked close enough. But, certainly vanilla Oblivion did not have parallax mapping and no ammount of texture tweaking could add the same quality bump effect. Either way those screenshots look way better than Oblivion when I install every posible graphic mod, but you'd expect that from a game released 5 years later.

    That being said, IMO Witcher 2 does not look all that good anyway, except for the textures, it looks 2008-ish at best, not what you would expect in 2011. (but I could say the same about 99% of games)

    GTA IV with Improved Graphics Mod v. 1.1 (either with or without ENB) looks great actually.

    It looks ok, but the models in that game lack the detailed textures of games like Metro or even Bad Company 2.
