Five of the best looking video games ever

In the history of video-games there have been many titles that were pieces of art. From unique visual styles to high definition graphics, check out my countdown of the 5 greatest that I've played.

I'd throw Bioshock in there. The art direction in that game has not been surpassed in MY eyes.

I never really got too far into that game, but I'll put it on my list for sure!

Legend of Zelda did look good for the time. The rest of the list I am not impressed with though. But this is an opinion article (news?) so I guess I just have to say I do not fully agree with his assessment.

The one thing that blew my mind was that he put GoW3 on the list but not Uncharted 2.

I haven't played Uncharted 2, it's on my list after Metro 2033 and Uncharted 1. My brother bought both in the series so they'll be ready to play :D

As I can't reply to any more comments, just let me say these are some of the best looking games that I personally have played. Just an opinion piece but I'd love to hear what you guys think and maybe I'll find some new games to play. I love a game with good art direction.

What platform are you going to be playing Metro 2033 on? I played it on the PC and it was a noticeable visual improvement over games like Crysis. (tessalation!!) However, on the 360 the game looked less than stellar.

in case anyone is feeling lazy:

God of War 3
Secret of Mana 3
Geometry Wars 2
Gears of War 2
LoZ: Wind Waker

No Uncharted 2? BS list |:

Hehe, knew that was coming.

But honestly, while I love some of the choices (Mana 3 and Wind Waker totally deserve a mention), to bring up modern titles like God of War 3 and Gears 2 while ignoring the likes of Uncharted 2 or Crysis seems off.

This list would be better if the author drew a line between artistic style and graphics (or maybe made 2 lists), rather than just labeling it as "best looking".

Infiny3105d ago

Indeed, that's why it's a little "off" to put GoW 3 and not Uncharted 2.

Motorola3105d ago

He says these are the best looking from WHAT HE PLAYED. He prob didnt play Uncharted 2...

avengers19783105d ago

NO uncharted 2, makes this list fail.
1. Uncharted 2
2. God of War 3
3. Batman Arkham Asylum
4. Call of Duty Modern Warfare2
5. Gears of War
6. Bioshock 1 & 2(I gotta agree with Thrillhouse)

Rofl. The games you mentioned make use of very few colours, I would actually refer to them more in shades....does sepia count as a colour?...nah we'll just call it grey...

AK463105d ago

except UC2, which has many colors

You can almost breathe the toxic-free air and feel the grass brushing lightly against your skin when playing it.

Wind Waker was amazing visually. I was seriously impressed with it. It was fun just to throw bombs and watching the water blow up.
