Game of the Year Awards 2019: Best Looking Game

COGconnected’s Nominees for Best Looking Game 2019

Video games are an escape, a chance for us to step outside the realm of reality and try something different. In games, we can drive recklessly, overthrow empires, and become superheroes who save the day. It’s nice to have an immersive experience that lets us step away from the stresses of life and find happiness in doing the extraordinary. To help cement this experience, games supply us with more and more realistic and beautiful settings each year. As technology improves, we see huge leaps forward in graphical styles, higher resolutions, better FPS speeds, and environments so lifelike they can be mistaken for the outside world. While each of the games on this list are greatly different from one another, they all share one defining trait: they are without a doubt some of the most beautiful and best-looking games of 2019. Here are the nominees for that award. (Beware the video contains spoilers)

This year was packed full of gorgeous titles, but we here at COGconnected had the grueling task of narrowing down the nominees to some of the very best and most impressive looking games to release this year. Whether it’s exploring an alien planet with guns blazing, trapping ghosts with a vacuum, or tearing the heads off of your enemy, these are the games that wowed us with their amazing presentation and attention to detail that let us truly get lost in their world.
