Thanks for all the answers so far!

By the way, how does Alan Wake looks on Xbox 360? I have the PC version, and I think it still looks really good.

It was a mixed bag, low resolution on the 360 but great lighting when stuff went crazy.

You are totally right! I was going to say Metroid Prime Trilogy. 



Switch: purchased. Fire Emblem and Smash Bros. Ultimate time!

Oh yeah, that one was a stunner for the Wii, I swear it almost looked like a 360 game at times.

I don't think it gets the recognition it deserves at times.

These are the games that I appreciated the visuals the most:


PS3:  Final Fantasy XIII

Wii: Punch Out!!

Speaking of Alan Wake, I am still hoping for a sequel.

I know, right? It's one of my favorite games ever.

It is a bit dated now with the gameplay and lack of a variety in enemies, but the story is top notch. I love that Poets of the Fall and Remedy worked together for the Old Gods of Asgards songs. Control is set in the same universe at Alan Wake. Not sure if its the same for Quantum Break.

Some of the games in the 360 camp started as exclusive and then went multiplat after a year. Braid and Bastion to be specific. I think Catherine was multi plat on day one.

Id toss Alan Wake in there somewhere. Personally, I thought Witcher 2 looked like ass but a lot of people praised the port. I guess a lot of the prettier games on 360 werent exclusive. They just werent on PS3.

It looks good with some excellent lighting and particle effects but I wouldn't say it's among the best looking games on the system, as the textures can be a bit rough.

Very true. I feel like due to the system's technically underpowered nature a lot of the best looking Wii games don't get credit for it; Jett Rocket, Fast Racing League, Silent Hill Shattered Memories and Monster Hunter Tri also come to mind in this respect.

Great call; definitely right up there as far as Wii graphics go. Lots of nice geometric and texture detail and some really snazzy particles at a silky smooth 60fps.

Wii: LoZ Skyward Sword

I've always found this pick a curious one; to me it just doesn't look that impressive even by Wii standards, I think I could easily name 20 Wii games that look better.

The techniques they employed in it hide very well the limitations of the console, not to mention that also manage to make it very atmospheric with its watercolor look. Play the game on an emulator on HD, and it becomes a looker.
