Im not asking what game has best visual, but what game has visual that you like most?

My top 3:

1)S.T.A.L.K.E.R. (It feels so real but also a little bit scary.It´s OPEN WORLD)

2)Shattered Horizon(Space, lighting, i love this)

3)Mirror Edge(So bright, so white, so blue, i love this game visual)

In my opinion, GTAV is the pinnacle of 7th gen console graphics.

Some of my pics (the quality is terrible):

@FreedomFreeLife:

Yes, I always thought Shattered Horizon had a great setting. But I never bought it because the player base was so small, and that kills an online FPS;

Shame they didn't make a singleplayer campaign, because a space setting would be great. Just like Dead Space it could give you a sense of loneliness and make it more dark.

Hrrrnnn...

Dark Cloud 2
FFIX
Journey

With FFIX it's more the art direction than it is the engine. I forgot to mention Borderlands 2, but it's essentially the same kind of look as DC2 and the art direction is more palatable in the latter.

Okami, Windwaker, LIMBO, Mirrors Edge, SMG, etc.

I like artsy type games. Not a fan of that realism tbh. Off the top of my head I guess I'll go with the Metro series if we are doing realism.

Add another one for Stalker ( either of Clear sky with complete mod or COP )

Then there is Metro LL

and i will also agree o mirrors edge . The clean look and art style of the game are great

and finally Witcher 2

I really agree with STALKER, easily the most immersive game/series I've ever played. I really like the visuals of Quake Live and the Scribblenauts series. Quake because it's so clean cut and there's no frills. Scribblenauts because the art is really charming.

Way too many awesome ones. If I can only pick three, I think I'll go with Final Fantasy X, Bioshock Infinite, and Mirror's Edge.

STALKER's visuals are incredible. They could not have more perfectly represented what Chernobyl actually would be like, but it's not even so much that it's realistic. The game has that element of fantasy that I believe we all think about when we think of a post-apocalyptic Chernobyl, and the effects of radiation.

Batman AA was another one I really liked. I don't think I've ever been more immersed in a game. The controls, gameplay, and the visuals all come together to make me feel as if I actually am Batman, and not just some person in control of the Batman character running around on my screen.

And one I want to mention is Black Mesa. The visuals by themselves are nothing special, but it's in the context of the Half Life universe, and being a remake of HL1 that makes them special. When I played Black Mesa the entire time I felt like I wasn't playing Half Life. It felt like I was playing a completely different game, but I always had a lingering sense of deja vu everywhere I went because all the models and textures were different.......but the same. The team really went the extra effort of finely crafting an alternative Black Mesa facility for you to experience as Gordon Freeman.

It was just amazing to me that a team of modders didn't just simply up-rez old game assets, or anything lazy like that as the big AAA publishers so often do when they give us "HD" collections. It's the best remake I've ever played.
