Ghost of Tsushima

  • Genre: Action
  • Release Date: July 17, 2020
  • Developer: Sucker Punch Production
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
  • Platforms: PS4/PS5

Samurai action game from Sucker Punch Production is one of the most beautiful games of the last console generation. The locations of Tsushima look like paintings by masters of art, who have transferred the nature and architecture of medieval Japan in detail.

Battles in Ghost of Tsushima also look great. The sword battles look like the dance of bloody blades. But on the way of samurai there are not only enemies, but also the moments of peace of mind and solitude. So, you can sit on a horse and ride through the fields in search of a cozy spot on a cliff, where the player will watch the beautiful sunset.

The Last of Us Part II

  • Genre: Action
  • Release Date: June 19, 2020
  • Developer: Naughty Dog
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
  • Platforms: PS4/PS5

The Last of us Part II survived all the power of the PlayStation 4 for the sake of juicy visuals. Naughty Dog did an incredible job on the game’s visuals. The stylistics, animations, and environmental detail take the picture to a new level in game graphics.

The game itself turned out to be controversial and caused a lot of contradictions and disputes in terms of both scenario and gameplay. But even the most demanding critics can’t deny that the picture in The Last of Us Part II looks really fantastic.

Red Dead Redemption 2

  • Genre: Action
  • Release Date: October 26, 2018
  • Developer: Rockstar Studios
  • Publisher: Rockstar Games
  • Platforms: PC / Xbox One / Xbox Series / PS4 / PS5

Rockstar artists have transferred to Red Dead Redemption 2 all the beauty of nature of the Wild West, the atmosphere of mining towns and the inevitability of industrialization in late 19th century America. The developers tried to make the open world, that not only looks good, but has a lot to do.

Cowboys in Red Dead Redemption 2 can hunt, fish, go to the saloon or visit the theater. Most fun is robbing trains and banks, but then the player obviously has no time for scenery. The game is able to enter, even if the gamer is quite far from the theme of westerns.

In Red Dead Redemption 2 world is really nice even just to be and walk around. And at the end of the walk the player can sit at the fire and cook broth while watching the stars. In other words – to go camping without getting up from the couch.

Forza Horizon 4

  • Genre: Racing
  • Release Date: October 2, 2018
  • Developer: Playground Games, Turn 10 Studios
  • Publisher: Microsoft Studios
  • Platforms: PC / Xbox One / Xbox Series

Forza Horizon 4 is a car enthusiast’s paradise. The game offers a large selection of cars and races, and the arcade gameplay makes the races driving and fun.

Weather conditions are constantly changing on the game’s tracks. In one season the racers are blasting through a snowstorm, while in another they’re cutting each other off under the blazing summer sun or trying to enter a corner in a downpour.

God of War

  • Genre: Action
  • Release Date: April 20, 2018
  • Developer: Santa Monica Studio
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
  • Platforms: PS4/PS5

After defeating the Greek gods, Kratos wanted to retire by moving to Scandinavia, but that didn’t work out. Now the retired God of War has to fight a pantheon of mighty Vikings.

The atmosphere is appropriate – snow-capped mountains, forests, and ruined temples. Sometimes Kratos and Atreus have to launch a boat and ply the waters. Such a picture makes you want to go sailing or fishing somewhere in those places. Detailed characters are not inferior to the locations. The monsters look majestic, and the gods look menacing and powerful.

Detroit: Become Human

  • Genre: Interactive movie
  • Release Date: May 25, 2018
  • Developer: Quantic Dream
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
  • Platforms: PC/PS4/PS5

Quantic Dream Studios tried to imagine what the world of the future would be like, with androids appearing in human life that are almost indistinguishable from real people. Interactive movie from David Cage caused a lot of controversy among players: some think the plot of Detroit: Become Human is graphomania, others – a real philosophy.

Visually, the developers have excellent facial animations. Mimicry of the characters conveys their emotions in detail, sometimes revealing the characters without using dialogue. The city itself also looks beautiful thanks to good framing and light work.

Microsoft Flight Simulator

  • Genre: Simulator
  • Release Date: August 18, 2020
  • Developer: Asobo Studio
  • Publisher: Xbox Game Studios
  • Platforms: PC / Xbox Series

Microsoft Flight Simulator won’t be to everyone’s taste, but those who are able to learn and still take the plane into the sky, will be able to go on a real trip around the world. The developers have transferred to the game literally the entire globe, of course, not without tricks, otherwise Microsoft Flight Simulator would not run even on the most powerful system.

The authors helped the topographic data from Bing Maps, and now anyone can fulfill a longtime gamer’s dream – to find a bird’s-eye view of their home.

Marvel’s Spider-Man

  • Genre: Action
  • Release Date: September 7, 2018
  • Developer: Insomniac Games
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
  • Platforms: PS4/PS5

New York City in Marvel’s Spider Man looks like a Hollywood movie. A colorful metropolis with lots of skyscrapers that never sleeps. The developers from Insomniac Games did a great job on flying the web. You want to go into the game just to jump around buildings, scurry across rooftops and do pirouettes at full speed, like a professional acrobat.

Climbing to the top floors of some towers, you can even look inside some apartments. I also want to praise the realistic water and the reflection of sunlight from the windows of buildings.

Final Fantasy XV

  • Genre: JRPG
  • Release Date: November 29, 2016
  • Developer: Square Enix
  • Publisher: Square Enix
  • Platforms: PC / Xbox one / Xbox Series / PS4 / PS5

The world of Final Fantasy XV will take the player to a real fairy tale. The environment in Final Fantasy is colorful, rich and detailed. Traveling through the locations feels like a real adventure, as if the player and his friends are going on a long hike, and none of the company does not know what awaits them on the way.

The game will show the gamer not only beautiful biomes, but also a lot of fantastic creatures, some of which are incredibly cute. In Final Fantasy XV you can spend with pleasure more than a dozen hours, exploring every corner.

DOOM Eternal

  • Genre: Shooter
  • Release Date: March 20, 2020
  • Developer: id Software
  • Publisher: Bethesda Softworks
  • Platforms: PC / Xbox one / Xbox Series / PS4 / PS5

DOOM Eternal is a gaming representation of the word “brutality”. The Earth is being torn apart by the armies of Hell, and only the Executioner of Doom is able to stop the invasion. The human cities are in utter ruin, and in the underworld literally everything is trying to tear the protagonist to pieces.

There’s a lot of meat in “Doom.” Hacking demons to pieces, you can safely learn all of their anatomy. The places of battles are different: some are trying to make the gamer uncomfortable, some – to impress with architecture, and some – to put on the cover of heavy metal album.
