I second that.
Heh-heh, the "best garfix evar"-thing always amuses me.
I think there are two things that need to be separated very clearly:

1. Technical graphics
Yes, today's PC FPS games are the undisputed king here (Crysis/Battlefield et al). Full of enigmatic acronyms (SSAO anyone?), the engine manages to render fairly convincing visual realism.

2. Artistic graphics
If the art director is truly blessed, he/she can envision fantastic graphics style, factoring in the underlying tech. Think of Final Fantasy XII with all of its beautiful landscapes… primitive as a tech, but oh so moody…

The bottom line: does Crysis (2007/PC) look better than Final Fantasy XII (2006/PS2)? You decide…
