What is the nicest looking game you've seen?

Just curious. 🙃

 

I'll say to use your own discretion when answering, in regards to what "nice looking" means.  Maybe it's the most technically impressive game you've seen.  Maybe it's the best looking art style/technique.  Maybe it's just a look or style that personally resonated with you.  Any generation, any platform, etc.

Well, there are really too many to list!  And I'm sure I'll be flamed for this one, but I really liked the 3D effect of Trine 2: Complete Story.

So far, the most gorgeous is probably Uncharted 4 but I have also been quite impressed by the photo-realism of The Order 1886...

 

Precision: I have a PS4 Pro and a 4K, HDR TV screen

The bioshock games are my all time favourite. 

 

Just love how dark and atmospheric they are. I don't think anything will ever even come close to topping them for me!

For overall game design, scenery/ environment and atmosphere, FFXII would be my top one. I really like the lively atmosphere and variety of towns and cities, and it had some interesting places. Tales of Xillia and Nier Automata are two others, very beautiful for scenery design. I also really liked Nier Automata's character design with the gothic dress, white hair and blind folds.

 

For characters, I liked FFXIII series. I really loved Lightning's design and found that the other characters like Hope, Serah, Vanille and Fang were well done as well. The clothing designs for Lightning Returns were my most favourite.

 

The Disgaea games have quite a cool quirky design, as do many of Nippon Ichi's games.

When the OG Assassin's Creed was released, I remember thinking how visually stunning it was and I thought it was leagues ahead of other titles in terms of raw graphics. It was also a fresh IP at the time so it resonated well with me.

First game to make me ponder getting a 4k TV and PS4 Pro is AC Origins. Game just looks so great.

Beyond Two Souls no doubt ❤

The graphics are absolutely amazing, the pacing of the game was really well done and the music was breathtaking.

Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture really stood out for me, I guess because it being a small open world meant they could put a lot of details in there. Also you don’t get many games set in rural England so it just stood out from the start. 

 

I also remember being really impressed with Far Cry 3, but that was possibly because it was my first PS3 game after years of playing on the PS2.

Okami definitely blew me away after seeing the vibrant and colorful visuals in action years ago with HD release.

If we are going strictly off looks and not the game itself I am going with The Order: 1886. Beautiful graphics and sound.

Love the topic BTW :)

Still The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, on Nintendo GameCube. Such a dream to take in on a nice CRT to this day, and is a touch more seamless than the bloomified HD version on Wii U which is a bit more video game than stack of animation cels.

 

After that, probably Fez.

Okami, Bloodborne and Life is Strange. Each had its own visual identity. Each fascinated me in its own way.

Oh yes, Bloodborne is one I find to have great visuals, especially from what I have played so far is Yharnam itself.

 

AC: Origins is also another I thought was a wonderful game, visually appealing sort of thing.

Horizon: Zero Dawn, great art direction and incredible technology to back it up in the most stunning game ever made.

Okami [with the filter], Puppeteer, LittleBigPlanet series, Tearaway, Kirby's Epic Yarn. Those come to mind as games that I really enjoy the art design and visuals of as well. The Order: 1886 is the only game where at times I was tricked into believing that I was watching actual actors rather than some computer generated models. Particularly the part in the pulled buggy at night. Man that game had great art direction and impressive tech behind it.
