There's a very strong argument to be made: that God of War III is one of the best looking games of last generation. I'd say that honour lies with Red Dead Redemption or The Last of Us, but when it comes to stupendous scale and massive boss fights, it's kinda difficult to go past God of War III.
Which is why I'm surprised that more people aren't talking about the upcoming God of War III remaster for the PlayStation 4. I get that Kratos and the God of War series is kinda out of vogue after a less-than-stellar spin-off game, and a completely reasonable aversion to ridiculous amounts of violence, but man. God of War III was good. And I think I'd like to play it again.
My recommendation: crank the settings up on this YouTube video. God of War III looks good at 1080p and 60 frames per second.
