#5: Killzone 3
While KZ2 took the approach of dark and dreary, Killzone 3 added a new palette of colors to the high-resolution formula Guerrilla Games introduced and maintained a level of polish that kept PS3 in the headlines even as current-gen hardware began to age. This game earns its spot in blood as it even keeps the same graphical integrity in its multiplayer mode.
#4: Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time
Many people may write off the Ratchet series since its art direction is not realism, but what has been witnessed in this title is simply one of the best looking games on PS3 hands down.
#3: Uncharted 2
Despite the gameplay, Uncharted 2 was one of those games that had people walking away saying they felt like they just saw a movie and remains to this day one of the most impressive uses of the PS3 hardware graphically.
#2: Gran Turismo 5
With over 200,000 polygons for a single car GT5 produced some of the most hyper-realistic graphics the racing simulation genre has seen on the PlayStation 3 with many clamoring to see what Polyphony Digital can do with Sony’s PS4 hardware next.
#1: God Of War III
Despite having a successor title named Ascension GOW III has managed to remain the best looking PlayStation 3 game to date with the one-two combination of incredibly detailed graphics paired with smooth and vivid animations causing so much action to be seen on-screen at a time that the behemoth set pieces and even environmental hazards such as entire monsters being a level in and of themselves are simply unbeatable on PS3.
