Journey
A single screenshot may be all that is needed to get across the beauty of its art style, but it takes seeing the game in motion to appreciate how nuanced its visuals truly are. Only then will you see individual grains of sand shift beneath you, or be amazed by the gradual accumulation of snow on your cloak. The sight of your unnamed character’s struggle against an ever-increasing wind causing his movements to become more labored is another one of the many visuals that sticks with you long after you stop playing the game.
