Okami, MGS3, Ocarina of Time, Shadow of the Collossus, God of War, Metal Slug, Crash Bandicoot, Ratchet and Clank, Metal Slug, FFVII. SFIV (IMO) . And I could even say that all the Killzone games have a very unigue artistic style to it, along with it's technical prowess, which just raises the bar.

Valkyria Chronicles

The new Prince of Persia

Yi-Long3422d ago

... You'd think Psychonauts and Panzer Dragoon would be on this list(!)

wait what FF7 had artistic style?

I'm surprised no one mentioned Braid yet.

Team Ico I think, has this mastered. Another game I would call overlooked in the art department is SaGa Frontier II. Beautifully rendered in watercolours.

But I think the top here are SOTC and Okami.

I disagree almost totally with FFVII being top artistic anything. I think Nomura as a designer got much, much better with his later FFVII Comp stuff and KH. But that's my opinion.

Bioshock & Gears deserve to be on any shortlist for artistic style. Rapture was amazingly envisioned and Sera's post-renaissance, war-ravaged buildings are stunning.

The most recent game with artistic style that popped out at me was Demon's Souls. The monster and character design is phenomenal. Every area in that game just oozes atmosphere and a big sense of dread.

Heck Demon's Souls was more spooky and survival horror like than RE5...which was being marketed as a scary game. The only scary thing I found in RE5 was the poor's scary how crappy at game development you can be to let Sheva and enemy A.I be mentally handicapped at all points throughout the game.

You guys are missing out KATAMARI!!!

double_heist3422d ago

He missed out on a lot like Valkyria Chronicles, Katamari, and even Flower

SnuggleBandit3422d ago

ya flower was really unique both gameplay and artwise

mfwahwah3421d ago

It's obvious why he skipped flower and vc. He said he was trying to steer clear of recent examples. You know, to show that games have always been artistic?

SlyGuy3422d ago

Artwork, storyline, etc...the game has a unique personality and style that I have never seen before.

I wish Clover still existed to make a sequel. :(

DelbertGrady3422d ago

Jet Grind Radio. Without that game Okami probably wouldn't be cel-shaded.
