Top 5 Most Beautiful Games

Everyone has their own definition of what they think is beautiful. So, this should be interesting topic for the commenters to discuss. Okami, Mirror´s Edge, God of War 3, Assassin´s Creed, and even Donkey Kong Country make a few lists. What would be on yours? (Assassin's Creed, Donkey Kong Country, Final Fantasy X, Mirror's Edge, okami, PC, PS2, PS3, Retro, Wii, Xbox 360)

Its a new game but I`d say Sound shapes was worth a place on this list.
Also its not out yet but Ni no kuni looks amazing graphically, I cant wait for that game. Can't argue with FFX and Okami though

I'll probably get disagrees but I think the enviroment in skyrim was beautiful. I must agree that Wind Waker is great looking also.

It was very good looking, specially on PC when you added a couple of mods, nothing drastic, just increase view distance and ambient occlusion.

Now if only the dungeons were a bit more varied and didn't have the same 3 puzzles in them over and over. I still think it was amazing despite its flaws.

I think a lot of Final Fantasy games can be on this list. that was the appeal back in the day for me.

but yes Final Fantasy X was a very beautiful game. same goes for Mirror's Edge.

I'd add LittleBigPlanet, Wipeout HD (especially Zone Mode) and Rayman Origins.

Final Fantasy XIII was also pretty, it has unrivalled cutscenes imho.

I agree that most FF games could go on this list. Even nowadays, I think games like FFVIII and FFIX look stunning. The character models might be jaggy by today's standards, but the background locations still look absolutely beautiful. A part of me misses pre-rendered backgrounds. They always looked so detailed and so full of life. I could really believe that they are real towns filled with real people. Compare it to FFXIII which had a much larger world, but so much of it felt lifeless and empty.

No mention of Dragon Quest 8? For shame.

I think trying to narrow down the 5 most beautiful games ever would be pretty impossible.
tigertron  +   1107d ago
Mirror's Edge
Gears of War 3 (the last chapter+the maps)
Sonic Generations
Rayman Origins
Alan Wake

Thats all I can think of at the top of my head (that I've played)
