The 5 Most Beautiful Video Games Ever Created.

Welcome, readers! Today I will discuss the 5 most aesthetically pleasing video games that I have ever played. We all want games that are pleasing to the eye, right? Read on for beautiful women and beautiful games!

Welcome back! There are no women, but there are games!

Please, don’t leave. At least read my opinion on the 5 most beautiful games ever created!

#5. Assassin’s Creed (PS3)

Assassin's Creed.

Assassin’s Creed is all around a beautiful looking game. When standing from the bell towers and such, it gives the player the opportunity to look down on the city. The horizon is foggy, and looks like you are actually looking off into the distance over a crowded city, not playing a video game. The creators did a wonderful job of making beautiful architecture, and breath taking scenes of the cities.

#4. The Prince of Persia (PS3)

The Prince of Persia

This is by far one of the worst games I have ever played. The most repetitive, and boring piece of feces I have ever beaten. But that does not take away from the fact this is an amazingly drawn game with beautiful scenery, and lush green pastures at the top of high towers. Much like Assassin’s Creed, the architecture of the buildings was beautiful, and being up high looking down in the valleys below was always a wonderful sight.

The game play may have been torture, but it was a beautiful game.

#3. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (Gamecube)

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.

Oh no! A cell shaded game!?

Yes, that is correct. I think that Wind Waker is a wonderful looking game. It is different, true, but the dust kicked up when you run, the wind, the clouds, it is all drawn VERY well, and creates a nice looking scene, even if it does look somewhat like a cartoon. People may disagree, but I think Wind Waker is a wonderful looking game. The scenery was good looking, and the ocean was pretty beautiful for being cell shaded. Simple, yet beautiful.

#2. Shadow of the Colossus (PS2)

Shadow of the Colossus.

Shadow of the Colossus is one game that is on nearly every beautiful game list. The all around world in SOTC is beautiful. The trees and grasses are done exceptionally well, and when the sun shines, it is truly a beautiful scene. Then, when one has to go battle one of the Colossi, the clouds drift over the fields, and the beast charges. The Colossi are also beautiful in their own way. Large and breath taking. Even though they are all drab offsets of green and gray, they are all awe-inspiring beasts.

Large and breath taking they are!

#1. Okami (PS2)


Of course! If Okami isn’t on any list of mine, I didn’t type that! Okami is a beautiful game all around, with different scenery and monsters. After reviving the trees in a certain location, there are pink leaves blowing around, and the cities and towns look beautiful. The fields are lush and beautiful. The drawings in these games are creative, and remind me somewhat of Wind Waker. Even the weapons in this game are nice looking. The scenes range from the night sky to the ocean, to a frozen winter wonderland. Okami is an all around wonderful looking game.

That’s about it. You should probably play these games yourself at some point, to feel their beauty. Thanks for reading!

Wish I could have counted how many times “beautiful” was said. But the count got too high.

Other games that could/should be on there depending on the beholder: God of War 3, Flower (is amazing btw), Fallout 3 (beautiful in a different sort of way), and…I forgot the name of it, but it was a rare game for PS2 that you were on a rail and playing music by shooting down weird enemies. If you lost health you went from silver surfer looking woman down to a wireframe ball.

I was considering including either Fallout 3 or New Vegas. Beautiful in the fact that they created a completely destroyed landscape. It’s eerie.
