Sucker Punch’s X-Men-inspired open-world adventure inFamous: Second Son is often touted as a stellar showcase for the PS4. To accentuate its sublime artistry, Sucker Punch recently added a Photo Mode, so players could capture images of the game without a HUD. It sounded fairly pedestrian. We’ve all seen in-game screenshots before. Big Whoop, I thought. Then NeoGAF hosted a screenshot contest and the results are astonishing.
The winning prize is a scant £15 / €20 / $20 PSN credit code, but that hasn’t stopped the GAF community from giving it their all. Ironically, despite this contest not being affiliated with Sucker Punch or Sony, it offers the best showcase for their latest first-party blockbuster and hardware. inFamous: Second Son’s ad campaign only wishes it captured stills this impressive.
