Top 10 Most Artistic Games of All Time

Game Developers are working around the clock to attain photorealistic visuals and we have definitely come a long way in achieving that. The visual art of any game is one of the most important things based on which we proceed to judge the game.

And now with so many different and unique art styles, gaming has become so much more diverse. Keeping all the different art styles in mind, we have made a list of the most artistic games ever produced!

Child of Light
Developed and published by Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft respectively, Child of Light is a gorgeous platforming role-playing video game. The game revolves around Aurora, a child who wakes up after dying from an unknown illness in the fictional land of Lemuria, and in order to reach home, she has to bring back the sun, the moon, and the stars who are imprisoned by the queen of the night.

The art direction, the color grading, and the environment as a whole are immaculate and Child of Light is no less than therapy for the ailing eyes of the gamers who long for an ecstatic adventure yet are filled with hardships.

Bastion is surely one of the most vibrant and colorful video games out there rivalling Dofus and not requiring an obscene amount of Dofus Kamas to enjoy the experience. Developed by Indie game developer Supergiant Games. The developer has put tons of effort into making the game which is visible from afar. Bastion is an immersive and enchanting experience that offers beautiful environments and formidable foes of different types.

The game has been praised by critics all over the world for its immaculate beauty, art direction, story, and narration. Bastion has won many awards and nominations since its inception and it surely deserves every single one of them.

Shadow of the Colossus
Shadow of the Colossus takes place in a fantastical world and centers on Wander, a young man who travels to a remote and deserted area of the realm in search of the ability to bring a girl named Mono back to life.

Shadow of the Colossus was a defining point in the industry of gaming as it became an important example of a video game as art because of its minimalist landscape designs, the emotions attached to the characters' journey, and of course the immersive gameplay. Shadow of the Colossus is old, but it's a masterpiece without a doubt.

Lost In Random
This game has bagged a ton of praise because of its unique and super challenging gameplay that totally depends upon the roll of a dice. However, it is also one of the most artistic games that Iíve played in a long time.

Set in the Kingdom of Random, the game puts you in the shoes of a brother, whose sister has been kidnapped by the Queen of Random and now you have to explore all six realms of this unknown world to find and rescue your sister. Each realm comes packed with some super awesome surprises.

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice
Inspired by Norse mythology and Celtic culture, British developer Ninja Theory absolutely kicked off with their title called Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice. The game follows Senua who must reach Helheim by defeating otherworldly entities and various foes in order to retrieve the soul of her lover from the goddess Hela.

Set in a dark world, the game offers a breathtaking environment along with astounding gameplay mechanics and it is also said that this game depicts mental illnesses the best. If you havenít it already, this might just be the perfect time to buy Hellblade Senuaís Sacrifice.

Horizon: Forbidden West
Horizon Forbidden West, without any doubt, is one of the most gorgeous-looking games in the gaming world. Set in a vast futuristic open world, this game is filled with epic pre-historic creatures and stunningly breathtaking environments that are hard to take your eyes off.

The game does a great job at portraying the lives of people from different tribes, each with its own stories and rituals. Definitely, one of the best when it comes to visual art.

Return of the Obra Dinn
Return of the Obra Dinn is probably one of THE most artistic games ever. Its bizarre yet intricate design is a brilliant work of art by a single person, nonetheless. The game, as strange as it may seem, is an actual masterpiece when it comes to crime-solving games.

It lets you uncover the dark secrets behind the deaths of a whole crew, playing memories on a loop as you try to find the clues and solve the murders. Definitely worth playing if you love art and crime-solving.

Apotheon is a pretty innovative game that lets you relive the old greek mythology through their gorgeous art. Itís an action platformer game that puts you in the shoes of a greek hero on a wild adventure to fight the gods who have abandoned humanity and left them to die. Climb mount Olympus and take over the powers of god to save humanity. This game is a great combination of gorgeous visuals and super fun gameplay.

Gora Goa
I think itís about time we looked into a puzzle game and since we are on the topic of artistic games, I think itís safe to say that Gora Goa is probably one of the best artistic puzzle games. Itís unlike any puzzle game Iíve ever played, it lets you put together pieces of pictures but in a way that it unlocks a new dimension or combines to create a new picture. Itís a super unique and challenging puzzle game that also looks amazing.

Artful Escape
Artful Escape, just like its name already suggests, is a game filled with gorgeous art that puts you in the shoes of a young and passionate musician on a challenging journey to become a rockstar. Itís a beautiful story-driven adventure game that features a world full of vibrant and colorful realms. I absolutely love the super smooth and fluid animation in this game. Itís one of the very few games that manage to create such an immersive gameplay experience with art.

Ori and the Blind Forest
Developed by Moon Studios, players take control of a cute little white spirit named Ori. The game has been praised by millions out there and what makes this game so good is its visuals and its gameplay mechanics alike. This game employs layers of scenery not only in the foreground to give the impression that the action is actually taking place but in simple terms, it is a breathing forest that you traverse.

That sums up our list of the top 10 most artistic games that you can play. These are just a handful of the many amazing games out there and the thing that I love the most is that each video game offers a totally different perspective that is both gorgeous and unique in its own way.
