I think for me at the moment it has to be Homeworld 2.

Not when you got a 320MB GTS and even then it stutters! :cry:

I can't wait until GPU hits 1GHZ clock speed with 500 stream processors, might be fully playable then!

Until that time I'll be playing at 1280 * 960, at which resolution Homeworld 2 is still beautiful :D

beautiful games?

- Shadow of Colossus PS2 (upscaled via the Ps3 it looks better)
- Ikaruga on the DC.
- Another World on the 3DO. :D

Just finished Ico a few minutes ago. It has the odd lo res texture that's a bit too obvious,but balanced against the number of absolutely staggering panoramic vistas and sheer depths it has you playing across, I'll forgive it that. Rarely does a game give you such a sense of scale - this place is massive.

In some ways its gameplay reminds me of Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, another stunner of a game.

Both nice games ICO and Shadow of the Colossus but seemed a little washed out of colour. For PS2 I'd have to vote for God of War 2, now that's a good claret!

I maybe a bit glassy-rose-tinted here but I also thought that Pitfall and Rayman on the Jaguar made the machine shine. They were very pretty (nearly impossible) 2D platformers.

Some of the cut scenes in FFVII give me that warm smile of beauty.

A lot of early flat-shaded 3D games are quite elegant to look at too:

Virtua Racing, Drivers eyes, Virus, even wireframe Starwars

To my eyes, these old 3D games look like computer games. If that makes any sense. :?

No, I meant that was my answer.
