This week, we kicked off a series exploring the 50 best-looking games of all time. Here’s Birch with the first ten, as well as the criteria we held ’em to. And now it’s my turn, with 40-31, and surely not a controversial decision in the bunch!

40) DmC: Devil May Cry

Capcom

Taking on a theme of crushing and destruction, this reboot had impeccably bizarre and otherworldly art direction. Floating debris, lurid creatures, and constant riffing on themes, it was both disturbing and beautiful.

39) Metal Gear Solid 3

Konami

Games at the end of a console life cycle tend to have the best graphics, and the Metal Gear series is no exception. Konami and Kojima got some of the best graphics out of the PS2 that we’d ever seen.

38) Zone of the Enders

Konami

Zone of the Enders pulled off a rare feat in that it felt like an animated episode you were controlling, not a bunch of polygons that looked vaguely cartoony. The robot design played to the strengths of the format, as well, and it looked good even before it got “remastered” for the PS3

37) BioShock Infinite

Take Two Interactive

Painstaking historical research went into this game, and it shows. Imagining a city floating in the skies that manifests both how America saw itself, and the troubling dark side of American exceptionalism, was no easy feat, but this game evokes a time that never was and an attitude that was all too real at the same time.
