Could go way off the deep end and just mention a list of games from a lot of genres. However I'll keep it more straight forward and just throw out a strong example I feel very passionate about.

Survival Horror games typically have really great aesthetics that really lures me in, something about them are sinister, quaint and comforting. the Soulborne games do this as well. Lighting, the way they tell stories though the environments is something that I really enjoy_

There have been already several games I love which I have mentioned so I'll just add some extra titles here :)

Shadow of the Colossus of couse. You can't go wrong with this one!

Painkiller was an awesome FPS with nasty visuals. The monastery level being one of my favorite!

The S.T.A.L.K.E.R saga's Zone conveys an awesome feeling of loneliness, despair and nostalgia. Even today it's still gripping!

Half-Life 2. The Source Engine in all its full glory. Just play Garry's Mod and you'll get a huge amount of awesome maps to enjoy. Even today, the Engine still knows how to give some nice stuff to our eyes.

Majora's Mask is my favorite Zelda ever. Its weird/lovecraftian atmosphere is just awesome and unique. Ikana Valley is a real gem for the eyes.

An almost forgotten gem that didn't deserve its fate. Clive Barker's Undying is a visual masterpiece (check the Manor, Monastery and Oneiros levels) and we truly need a remake of this one. Or a sequel. Even though one of the devs said that the licence was dead and buried back then, I still hope that one day it'll rise from the grave.

Deus Ex, from Warren Spector. The very first and the best of the bunch. The game which brought us awesome Cyberpunk visuals and even predicted several events from the next 20 years to come after its release in 2000. Terrorists attacks on New-York? Check. Social Media rise? Check. Global pandemia? Check. The best game of all time for me.

Ok gonna end with a game I have now been following for quite a little bit. It's not released yet but it's planed for this years. Serial Cleaners is a full love letter to the glorious 90s. We always talk about the 80s but the 90s are also a period a lot of us surely affectionate a lot (the best years for me were the early 90s after all). If you are into some nostalgia trip; I'd suggest to keep an eye on this one!
