CrunchArcade: Standout examples of HD gaming


You’re wasting your shiny new HDTV if all you do is watch Leno in high-def. Why not see what your display can do and play one or two of these standout video games on it? The list, compiled for High-Def Digest, includes both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 games, so there’s no need to worry whether or not your system is represented.

Xbox 360 games include Gears of War, BioShock and the upcoming (allegedly) Too Human. PS3 owners should check out Heavenly Sword and Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune; Killzone 2 and LittleBigPlanet are the future titles to look out for.

Why are these games go-to examples of HD gaming at its finest? (I actually would have added Virtua Fighter 5 to this list, but whatever.) Well, and this may shock you, but they all look fantastic on a 1080p monitor (even if the aforemetioned Xbox 360 ones run at a native 720p). They’re the games you show your friends when showing off your new TV so be sure to grab if you don’t have them already.
