Beauty is in the eye of the beholder … except with these games where beauty is objectively the correct word to describe them. From the eerie minimalism of Limbo and The Unifinished Swan to the painterly worlds of Okami and 11-11: Memories Retold, here are 10 Video Games With Unique Art Styles.

  1. Hey you guys broke your no mobile game rule 🙂

  2. A bit of a stretch, but I really like the visual design of Comix Zone. Probably the most literal comic book game.

  3. The unfinished swan is beautiful and has a great story. Cuphead animation is beautiful and nostalgic but I still haven't finished it.

  4. 'Limbo' was just ripping off 1991 Amiga slash-em-up 'Blade Warrior' though, wasn't it?

  5. You showed Elijah Wood at 4:04 and then didn't mention he voiced Harry in 11-11 Memories Retold. 🦀

  6. I watched this list wondering if Gorogoa was going to show up

  7. You were FOOLISH!!! for not including the Zeno Clash games, which are both bonkers along multiple dimensions. Slightly less FOOLISH!!! for not including The Void, although that game is probably even more obscure than the Zeno Clash games (if nothing else because it is insanely difficult and inaccessible). The Music Machine is another fairly obscure one with a jarring art style, made by the guy who made Dusk before anyone knew who he was.

  8. Adding to the list, courtesy of the Wii's lack of power inspiring artistic creativity:
    Mad World
    Kirby's Epic Yarn
    Lost in Shadow
    Ivy the Kiwi?
    Muramasa: The Demon Blade (or Odin Sphere)
    Wario Land: Shake It!

    I feel these are all worthy of consideration, although some fit beside other games on the list (Mad World with Limbo, Wario with Cuphead, Ivy the Kiwi with Apotheon)

    And if we're going unique, but don't require good, lets get some TIS-100 in there.

  9. Pretty much every game before the era of online with consoles.

  10. Based on the awards for art and art direction won, I think the original Bioshock should be on here.

  11. Hadn't heard of Gorogoa, thanks for the tip – its fantastic so far!

  12. SUPER HOT has a pretty unique art style.
    Same goes for Antichamber and Q.U.B.E. (1&2).
    Outlast with the voxel graphics has a cool style too.
    I also like the art style of "The Saboteur",were in the beginning it's all black, white and red, and only after you liberate parts of Paris, color comes back into the liberated parts of the world.
    I hope for a new list with more games with unique art styles. So many games to choose from.
    Keep it coming

  13. You are foolish for not including Mad World (Wii) on this list!… ❤

  14. Hollow Knight is one of the most visually striking games I've played in a long time.

  15. 11-11: Memories Retold has a really similar style to Dreams

  16. The are so many other games I love the art style from; FAR Lone sail, Mark of the Ninja, The Shape of Worlds, Manifold Gardens, The Room series, The creature in the well.

  17. Return of Tiny Peter… Come on!
    Return of Tiny Peter… oh my God!
    You know that you'll be back… Here you are!🎤🎵🎶

  18. So you've never played past the first level of Unfinished Swan, huh?

  19. Armikrog. A video game made in claymotion.

  20. No more Heores/ Never Alone/ Limbo as thumbnail showed/ Resogun/ Nidgehog 1 and 2/ Liberated/ Untitled Goose Game/ Mad World/ this PS4 on-rail shooter (forgot the name..very stylish n amazing graphics n over the top gameplay)/ WWE All Stars/ Little Nightmares 1 and 2

  21. Few other games – Counterspy/ Stick it to the man/ Comix Zone/ Fandango Remastered/ Manual Samuel/ Transistor/ Hotline Miami 1 and 2

  22. Type Rider is a wonderful journey through the history of writing and typography.

  23. Just to put a suggestion out there…El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron

  24. Return of the Obra Dinn holds the patent to this entire list

    Edit: I posted this comment before I started the video. Boy was I satisfied by the first entry on the list. Well done bois

    Second edit: I should have noticed the video tag

  25. What system would allow for playing the highest number of these?

  26. I came for valkyria chronicles and was left disappointed

  27. Very disappointed not to see The Neverhood, Skullmonkeys, or Armikrog on this list. Claymation is one of the rarer and most impressive forms of games out there.

  28. I feel like Hylics 2 should be on the list.

  29. Dragon's Crown and The Puppeteer have a great artstyle too

  30. The Long Dark should have been on the list and I would have at least given Altos Adventure an honorable mention.

  31. don't forget Claymotion style as The Neverhood or Skullmonkeys.

  32. Return of the mack.. How'd you know what I've been listening to? 😂😂

  33. Valkyria Chronicles i always thought looked awesome. great games

  34. Someone needs to teach Peter to say byzantine. It's not a hard word.

  35. I would have only added Journey and Wind Waker to this list (not to mention Grease Dance, of course). Maybe next time, great video as always!

  36. Yea that looks nothing like impressionist art lol

  37. Let't Play Pogotowie Komputerowe Wałcz i Okolice. says:

    7:01 tnx been looking 4 that one, just the title skipped my mind.

  38. I'm so glad you mentioned the long, unskippable intro for Okami. Many years ago my friend and I wanted to try the game, and I just remember the intro being so long and annoying (the dialogue "sounds" are obnoxious) I eventually just turned it off and never went back. Since then I've seen Okami mentioned in many videos for various reasons but nobody has ever mentioned the long, unskippable intro. I eventually thought that maybe it was just a fabricated memory. Thank you so much for assuring me that I'm not crazy after all…. …about that, at least.
