The Best Looking Games of 2019
It’s the end of an era, and we’re finishing out the decade with COGconnected’s Game of the Year award for Best Looking Game. Sure, a lot has happened in the last ten years, but let’s be honest, we can only remember the last twelve months.
12. Rage 2
Rage 2 is fun to look at with its gritty Borderlands-esque scenery and colorful weaponry. Sure, its success is dicey, but we’re not here to argue about the quality of the game itself, but how it looks. It’s always more enjoyable to look and kill when the setting works, and Rage 2’s embracement of its junkshop aesthetic lets it revel in its environment. The post-apocalypse is a good look for Rage 2.
11. Mortal Kombat 11
One more or less knows what to expect with Mortal Kombat, so it’s up to Warner Bros. to keep the visuals looking fresh, updated, and exciting for players. Mortal Kombat 11’s design choices might not be for everyone, but for those who could embrace inclusion and improvements, these choices added to an already good-looking game to make it a great-looking one.
10. Sayonara Wild Hearts
The visuals of Sayonara Wild Hearts aren’t hyper-realistic or nostalgic, but instead evoke a futuristic and unique world with its shades of purples, pinks, and teals around its stylized characters. With such an interesting look at a rhythm game, it’s no surprise that Sayonara Wild Hearts is a memorable title.
9. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
There’s a noticeable upgrade in graphics quality with early promotional materials for Sekiro and its release, showing that developers cared about giving the best game possible for their players. This attention means that one can experience Sekiro’s punishing ninjas-and-samurai gameplay with crystal clarity, and lets you see your deaths all the clearer.
