Ummm....simply no.

You could argue that it has the most appealing visual direction to you, personally, but there is absolutely no way it's got the 'best graphics'. If we are talking overall precieved graphics(lighting, rendering, MORE POLYGONS[lol], etc) there is no where that STO is even in the top 3. It just lacks the engine capable(not to mention lack of an art team) to be competitive to other titles.

Don't get me wrong, STO can make a decent screen shot with everything maxed; but it most definetly has it's short comings.

Maybe It's because I CAN run other games ultra high/maxx AA/etc but I can defiently tell the difference between all the mainstream MMO's in graphical fidelity. Maybe it's your rig that's substandard; because I can gurantee you that it's not mine.

Not the BEST but it's up there. Lord of the Rings Online, Silkroad Online are a couple games that are crazy gorgeous as well.

i always found lord of the rings to be quite plain. almost ugly at times. i know its all personal opinion and everything but that game never left me thinking 'wow this looks stunning'.

Don't get stuck on the 'I like this game so nothing else is better' bandwagon, that is a sad place to be. I LOVE STO, but that doesn't cloud my eyes to the beauty of other games. SWTOR has some great visuals.

Some pics I've taken.

Anyone who thinks STO's graphics suck has a sucky computer. Unfortunately gameplay > graphics.

Anyway, the MMO with the best graphics IMO is probably ***.

Is Google currently down? I'm curious what other MMO's have you played, have you compared your own screenshots? What is it that you think that makes STO 'the best'?

Age of Conan looks awesome on full tilt graphics, but the game is as shallow as STO, but also now free to play, so it has a place on my hard drive
