Generation review: Striking visuals

For the first time since gaming dove headfirst into the third dimension, style became the rule rather than the exception. Many developers built on or abstained from photorealism altogether, making impossible worlds that captivated imaginations and informed gameplay. They returned to sprites with gusto for "2.5D worlds," or took painterly inspiration for 3D models that looked like comic books come to life.

There are far too many examples of captivating visual styles on PS3, Wii, and Xbox 360 to list comprehensively, but these are the games whose bold lines and unashamed triangles still burn the strongest the mind's eye. (Bastion, BioShock: Infinite, Minecraft, PC, PS3, Street Fighter IV, Trine, Xbox 360)
