Runner(s)-Up: Fat Princess (SCE)

Other Nominees: None

WhatIfGaming E3 2008 Awards: Best Graphics Technology

Best Graphics Technology:
Killzone 2

Developer: Guerrilla Games
Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment
Release Date: March 2009

Crytek’s CryEngine 2 is as strong as ever with Crysis Warhead. The foliage,character models, particle effects, and everything forms a great photo realistic experience. The only problem is that the frame rate is slow even for our dual GTX 280’s and the game’s core audience itself is not consumer friendly.

Killzone 2 won this one hands down. The game looks unbelievable and Guerrilla Games really kicked it up a heavy notch. The A.I. is incredible, even for a more toned down version across all levels to keep us from running away. In addition, the lighting can best be described only by the word “valor” and the gameplay itself with a wartime dichotomization of emotions leads Killzone 2 not only as one of the best first person shooters we have seen at E3, but the only one that takes an immense amount of processing power for the PlayStation 3.

  4. That was insane! loved it

  5. Amazing stuff

  6. I was WOW-ed

  7. Speechless actually. Wasn’t here until a couple of good months ago. Thanks

  8. Totally agree to all of them

  9. Best awards ever. No doubt. So it’s not just 4 or 5 dudes in a small office picking all of them? It’s 1 THOUSAND before E3 AND finally at E3…NICEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

  10. This was just so magnificent and munificent.

  11. Fallout 3 Action rocks. I love it when you go into the school, and you have to run with a timer.

  12. All the selections make sense. Not too sure about The Conduit (Wii) as runner-up!

  13. Amazing once again. This really deserves accolades

  14. Well more so than they already have I mean

  15. Agreed: Won’t spoil it here…but GAME OF SHOW = ABSOLUTELY true. Was Gears 2 playable ?

  16. Gears 2 would have won best 3rd person shooter no doubt had it been playable

  17. Can’t wait for GOTY Awards!!!

  18. This was just super cool

    Without any doubt in my mind. These are always the best awards I see every year

  19. I agree with MOST of these. Some I want to disagree with. Like LEFT 4 dead over fallout 3, but seeing both…it’s definitely hard. And I can see why 1,000 people partake in these WhatIfGaming Prizes every year

  20. Killzone 2 by far has the right tech. No doubt.

  21. Pretty good choices I think. Lots of great games coming out in the next year.

  22. 1,000 for preliminaries. No doubt a great choice.

  23. Really loved these awards. Awesome stuff guys
