    I think the nu-Tomb Raiders (on PC) surpass Horizon.
    Battlefield 1 (again, on PC) is probably my top pick though.

    While photorealism is possible now, it remains a big question on whether you want to use it or not. Because at the end of the day it looks just like Real Life - which is what every gamer on the planet is trying to get the fuck away from. It's brilliant if you're trying to bring a truly exotic location to life (outer space, alien worlds, ocean depths, Cthulhu's bathroom) but otherwise I think it should be used sparingly... or the end result will look like Every AAA Ever Made.

    Scaling the graphics back a little bit and instead adding your personal style gives a much more memorable result. Great examples of this have been posted in the thread already. Unfortunately this approach to graphics often requires Talent and Effort, both of which are in ever-dwindling supplies nowadays.
