Thread Title: When Was The Last Time The Graphics Of A Game Surprised Title
Then what the f**k are we talking about? Graphically speaking, all of the games I've mentioned are better than Zelda/Mario.
Now, if you prefer Zelda's/Mario's "artistic" style - then more power to you. But preference doesn't trump fact. Now, if he had said "Coming from Skyward Sword, Breath of the Wild was what surprised me the most". But he didn't, so I only have assumptions at to what he's comparing Breath of the Wild/Odyssey to - which is why I named that list of games.
In addition to what Mzuzek said, "what surprised you the most" is fundamentally a question dependent on an individual's subjective perception. A game having more polygons and pixels may not necessarily mean it evoked a stronger response.
