Top Five Most Beautiful Scenery In Gaming, Number One’s A Stunner

With the incredible processing power of todays gaming systems, games more than ever have the potential of delivering some beautiful HD visuals. While facial animation, detailed character models and advanced physics simulators are all feeling the benefit of modern technology, nothing makes you stop and stare like an epic sweeping vista.

All of the games featured in this weeks top 5 are fast paced action titles. But they all had their gameplay abruptly halted when I decided to stop running, and simply look. Make sure you switch the video to HD and enjoy the scenery from this selection of beautiful game vistas.

    Ohhhh, pretty…I probably spend more time trying to figure out where to go next then really enjoying the scenery. Thanks Joe for helping us stop and smell the roses, so to speak.

    Uncharted 3 wins, of course. That game looks legend!

  • Sole Survivor

    I reckon it’s the best looking thing on consoles…..Crysis 2 has nothing on this!

    one of the most ignored good games: mirror’s edge

  • nick

    most beautiful game ive ever played has to be bioshock 2.
    just the artistic flair in that game is mind boggling!
    now who said games cant be art!?

    Nick, Bioshock 2? Well not for scenery.

    @Afrotrav – yeah, that game’s been ignored big time. So awesome.

    Tbh mirrors edge was a game I loved which I has forgotten about. Still is one of my faves though and I’m glad it came in on this lol.

    Great vid indeed! Nice one. Maybe you could do another Vista? But I don’t know what you’d name it… Maybe specific to certain genres….that’d work!

  • Joseph Garrett

    There are plenty more games I could have included.

    Next top 5 will be best enemies. Everyone feel free to post suggestions. If I use your suggestion you will get a mention.

    Ah nice. Me first: Zeus in God of War 3? He was terrible. But I’m sure there are tougher bosses. That last mech in Enslaved was beastly!

  • nick

    absolutely, raptures freaking beautiful!
    one of the very few games thats got a real artistic flair to it!

  • Sole Survivor

    Yeah that’s true. Can’t wait for the Joe’s new piece on boss fights. Should be awesome.
