Due to the very nature of time, things that were once new slowly age and grow old. Because of this, games that we believed to be groundbreaking have now become obsolete in this ever changing world. However, some have managed to retain a graphical appearance that could still be considered good by today’s standards. This list aims at revealing four of those games.
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (Gamecube, Wii)
Aiming for a much more “Realistic” approach than previous entries, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is still a rather impressive looking game. Serving as a testament that Wii games could look good.
Being the thirteenth installment in the popular Zelda series, The Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess follows the story of Link as he is forced into an adventure to save his friends and, in the process, save all of Hyrule from twilight that covers the land. Link must use numerous items found through his travels to advance through various dungeons, and destroy numerous enemies.
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess was released by Nintendo on both the Wii and GameCube in 2006.
Final Fantasy X (PS2)
Final Fantasy X is the tenth game released in Square Enix’s popular series of the same name. The player takes on the role of Tidus, a slightly childish blitzball player who is taken away from his home city of Zanarkand when it was attacked by the monstrous Sin. After the attack, Tidus finds himself in the land of Spira one thousand years in the future. Tidus must now find his way back home with the help of the friends he meets along the way.
Final Fantasy X was released on PS2 in 2001
Shadow of The Colossus (PS2)
This game still looks quite stunning by today’s standards despite being eight years old. The game was created by Team Ico as the spiritual successor to their first game: Ico. Shadow of the Colossus follows the story of Wander as he bargains with a deity, Dormin, to return life to a women he loves. However, in order to do this, Wander must slay large monster, by climbing them like buildings, to release power that the deity can use to return life to the girl.
Shadow of The Colossus was released for PS2 in 2005
Kingdom Hearts (PS2)
The first in Square Enix’s Kingdom Hearts series, this game has retained a nice appearance due to its cartoon style. Kingdom Hearts combines elements from both Disney and Final Fantasy into a unique world that is full of charm.
The player takes on the role of Sora, a young boy who is whisked away on an adventure after his home world is destroyed by creatures known as the Heartless. He is soon found by Donald and Goofy, who are in search of king Mickey, and together work to stop the Heartless from destroying everything.
Kingdom Hearts was released in 2002 for PS2
