Games truly bring fantastical worlds alive by letting us literally run, jump, and shoot our way through them.
Completely agree. The entire reason I'm interested in the Bioshock series is because of it's world and aesthetic, because normally I don't like shooters.
Gimme brutal legend 2!!!
Lots of good picks in there. Bioshock of course, but those Mario and Luigi games do seem to take place in some kind of alternate Mario universe where everything is somehow *more* weird.
The worlds in the NES Little Nemo game were dreamy.
going way back I like the Panzer Dragoon series. I know alot of people missed out on the series, especially the RPG masterpiece Panzer Dragoon Saga, but it has some of the best atmosphere and epic music score in the history of gaming.
I think zelda:wind waker should be on this list
I really liked Fereldan/Dragon Age universe. Same with Mass Effect. And I am suprised to not see any Elder Scrolls or Fallout mention in there.
Brings me back to Final Fantasy IX.... got those warm fuzzy feelings!
