The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
By combining aspects of the “realistic” (e.g. Ocarina of Time) with the animated (e.g. Wind Waker), The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild creates an aesthetic that feels at once fresh and familiar. Looking like a painting come to life, Breath of the Wild‘s world is vibrant, detailed, and incredible to explore. Enemies react and adapt to Link’s assaults and Divine Beasts roam the land in impressive, Shadow of the Colossus-esque fashion. Its world is an absolute joy to explore, and its visuals are integral to this experience.
