4 Games That Have Aged Well Over The Years

GameNTrain author Christopher Carpenter writes: Due to the very nature of time, things that were once new slowly age and grow old. Because of this, games that we believed to be groundbreaking have now become obsolete in this ever changing world. However, some have managed to retain a graphical appearance that could still be considered good by today’s standards. This list aims at revealing four of those games. (Culture, Final Fantasy X, GameCube, Kingdom Hearts, PS2, Shadow of the Colossus, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Wii)

I still find Morrowind impressive. In some ways, even more impressive than Elder Scrolls IV or V.

Prince of Persia 2008 is still one of the most visually stunning titles on any platform

@Miasma
GTA4 on consoles looks and has always looked absolute garbage.

On PC it runs horribly, but it does look good with Icenhancer and other graphical mods.

Any game that aimes to look 'realistic' (as compared tot the specific art styles of Morrowind, Bioshock or most Nintendo classics) is going to have a harder time aging well.

It's aged well overall. #5 on my top games of all-time.

All of them has an HD remake. I think Legend of Dragoon,Final Fantasy 8 and IX can still hold its ground to this day graphics wise and all after 15 yrs ago.

Resident Evil 4 for any platform, still looks great.. (PS2, not so much..still good though)
CanablisLives  +   736d ago
Also, if we are only talking detail, not texture quality, the San Andreas still hits me nicely, too..

super Mario brothers

onimusha 1-3 have aged well also. dawn of dreams hasn't though imo
elhebbo16  +   736d ago
Shadow of the Colossus did aga well, but it has to do a lot with its art style and design rather than the graphics.

Jet Set Radio on the Dreamcast.

It has aged better than any other game to date, seriously, if you have that game on the DC, boot it up and be blown away.

Also Crackdown 1 still looks lovely, I think it' the cel-shaded look.
rigbybot127  +   730d ago
It looks gorgeous in HD, via the PS3 and Vita port.

God of War has aged amazingly, GoW II even more so. Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee & Exoddus have aged very well, brilliant games.

RE Remake for the Gamecube still looks great and is still the peak of the series IMO. Love the game to this day!! RE4 was another great looking game and fantastic to play but I have mixed feelings because I believe this was the beginning of the end for the series.

All graphics whores unite!!!!! My daughter has game from about 7 years ago called "Putt Putt Saves the Zoo." It looks great still on PC. Let's put it in the top 10 games of all time.

God, Shadow of the Colossus is a masterpiece, and Twilight Princess made the #3 spot on my top games of all-time. Can't wait for the KH and FFX HD remakes!
