Unreal Tournament 3, and all ports from console, though mods did fix them mostly. Though I admit that when I am disappointed about the graphics in PC games I just take a quick look at current and to be released console games. And then the graphics in that PC game dont appear as bad anymore!

I still stand by my opinion that U3 is still a visualy appealing game even though it does seem to lack the ability to do sprawling out door maps, good vegitation abilities (if I saw a tree moving, it was clearly a single fan of leafs with a flag ripple effect used on it), and good water physics (Its water shader was adequate , but no where in the game did I feel like the water was "real").

Doom3 and farcry... 2 different engines imo. Doom3's indoor normal maped rooms and awsesome use of light and shadows was way above far cry's bogged down (especially with the flash light on) sparse indoor areas. On the other hand I've yet to see a GOOD out door scene using the doom3 engine.

Hmm what should I add here. FF11 maybe? IMO I havnt seen anything in it that looked as good as FF10. Far cry 2? The dry african vegetation isnt so pretty to look at and the ransacked 3rd world country village look has been done to death. Jerico? corridor shooter that looks like the rest.. just more blood.
