Default Best looking game out there?

So, what's the current best looking game out? Is it still Crysis?

Metro 2033 will be a definite contender when its released. That recent trailer looked incredible.

... but yeah I think Crysis still wins right now. Which is pretty impressive for a 2 1/2 year old game.

There are plenty of extremely nice looking games out there, but none of them look as consistently good as Crysis.

I think a better question is what is the best looking game for each genre... We already know which is the best looking FPS.

Best looking RPG I've played would probably be either The Witcher, Risen or maybe Mass Effect. Dragon Age should have been up there but the graphics just aren't that good most of the time.

Crysis, GTA4 and Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood for me, in that order.

You people will call me crazy but I feel Uncharted 2 is the best looking game. No it doesn't have everything Crysis has, but to me it has a MUCH better art direction and the snow levels look better. Yeah, I said it.

Crysis, GTA4 (large environment), FarCry2, Dirt2 (is awesome!), and EVE looks really nice (planets etc..)
