Best games for their visual arts?
I'm seeking opinions in search of the best loved and most influential games for their art styles of all time (not to ignore recent titles though!). Just curious to see what you think as I try to drum up a top ten list. I may need to make it exclusive to certain years since my mind goes all over the place... Not to influence you or anything, but so far my picks are (in no particular order):
Fallout 3 (From what Iíve seen, mmm.)
God of War
Oddworld: Munchís Oddysee
American McGee's Alice
World of Warcraft (for making cartoons)
Grah! I can go on and on, that just scratches the surface...
Just a few that comes to mind:
Jet Set Radio
Final Fantasy 7
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Final Fantasy 6
Original Doom Series (not Doom 3)
Zone of Enders Series
Dragon Quest/Chrono Trigger
Guilty Gear Series
Anything having to do with Warhammer 40,000
My list of fave art styles:
That New Prince of Persia game
Street Fighter 4 Cutscenes (All take my breath away)
Shadow of the Colossus
Legend of Mana
Just to name a few.
My favorite games in terms of visuals is definitely The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. Okami and Psychonauts score high too. Also, XIII.
Moving away from 3D games, I would commend the 2D Metroid games. Really dig those sceneries.
I can't believe no one has listed Elder Scrolls Oblivion, Beyond Good & Evil or Mass Effect..
I think I need to make it a top 20 list... Ha ha ha.
I have to say Shadow of the Colossus. What a masterpiece! The Colossi are so huge and graceful. It's not just the 'look', but the animation is superb too. I never wanted to kill them :(
Edit: Definately Okami and ICO, too.
