We had the chance to enjoy a ton of amazing games this past generation that left us speechless and in awe of where gaming was going. Naughty Dog was a key contributor to this with Uncharted and The Last of Us. However, now that this generation is drawing to a close, we can look forward to the improvements that the next generation of consoles are going to bring with it. This is easiest to do with games that are cross-gen because we can compare PlayStation 3 iterations to their PlayStation 4 counterparts.
Here are the five games making the biggest leap.
NBA 2K14 is one of the more impressive cross-gen titles. The changes are staggering and very obvious. 2K Sports has done a fantastic job creating a player likeness that you sometimes need to take a second look to make sure you’re seeing a game. If they continue in this direction, NBA 2K17 is going to look downright lifelike and very creepy all at the same time.
Madden NFL 25
Madden NFL 25, like NBA 2K14, offers a significant increase in visual fidelity. The difference between RG3 on PlayStation 3 and RG3 on PlayStation 4 is blatantly obvious; even if you’re not a fan of EA Sports or its yearly football title, it’s hard to argue against how good the players look. Hopefully as EA becomes more and more comfortable with this new hardware, the players start to look better and better.
