What’s the last game whose graphics wowed you?

Maybe the ray tracing in Control, Metro Exodus, or Minecraft RTX particularly blew you away. Maybe it was the the water in Sea of Thieves, the facial detail in Black Desert Online, or the horses in Red Dead Redemption 2. Maybe it was the entire planet Earth being recreated in Microsoft Flight Simulator, or standing in City 17 in Half-Life: Alyx. People who like cars have good things to say about the cars in each new Forza Horizon?

Mollie Taylor: It’s not a new game, but I revisited Final Fantasy 13 a few months ago and was genuinely floored by how good it still looks. Say what you will about that game (and its shoddy PC port), but I’ve always been a fan and the graphics have held up fantastically over a decade later. Irritatingly, my external hard drive with all my capture packed up recently, because I ended up taking a butt-ton of gorgeous screenshots. Each character is so visually interesting and areas like the Sunleth Waterscape and Nautilus are still a joy to look at. Seriously, just go and look at how pretty it is!
