What games have some actual interesting styles and environment? I want something that makes me say wow when I look at it. Everything seems so boring and samey right now.
Xenoblade and Xenoblade Chronicles X have some amazing environments.
Well I did buy xenoblade X on release but I haven't played it yet. Guess I should go do that
Morrowind did back in the day.
Loved Urshilaku Burial Caverns
Vanillaware's environments are beautiful. Try Dragon's crown if you haven't. They also have an Odin Sphere remake coming out soon.
What counts as interesting? Personally I really want some kind of game where you explore old abandoned civilization.
Bloodborne had some very interesting areas. I like the whole gothic thing they got going on, and the sky is beautiful.
I wish there were more fantasy games that didn't look geologically possible. Too bad none of the good artists would probably bother with the gaming industry and making such strange worlds would be too daunting of a task for the hacks who work for vidya.
I think the last time I was truly wowed by an alien landscape in a video game was when they were still 2D, and the art was heavily influenced by Roger Dean (if it wasn't made by him, I dunno).
Just like the gondola that floats along down the river off life he himself is everywhere yet never leaves his mark on the blue waters the ocean of our existence.
Anytime I see that bullshot I always post this comparison image. I just wish Fromsoft wouldn't downgrade their games so much. I could understand the need to scale back textures for a console release, but why would the devs completely destroy the beauty of the scene like this? Pic related, the comparison is insane.
consoles can't handle advanced lighting. It's very demanding but it can have such a massive improvement on the atmosphere of a game.
bloodbourne is a very nice game artistically but graphically it's ass. I really wish I could have played it on my
Ori and the blind forest
Not sure exactly what you're looking for but plenty of good stuff in this thread.
That would have been much more moving if it had some proper punctuation.
