    I agree on the first Gran Turismo being something else. It's weird but we basically thought it looked real back then. Agreed on Morrowind also.

    Rome: Total War was a real jaw dropping moment as well.

    Vanishing of Ethan Carter was stunning, shame game wasn't as good as the graphics.

    Witcher 3. GTAV. Elite Dangerous. All set standards for visual beauty, top notch gaming as well.

    Next level is going to be getting the same quality in VR.

    Re: QOTW: Which is the most visually stunning computer game?

    I think the original Uncharted really wow'd me. Finding that U-Boat in the jungle. Looked like a leap from Tomb Raiders of the time.

    Super Mario World, also amazed. I had an Amiga, but really only played Dizzy as my previous platformer. Mario just looked juicy and vibrant.

    If we are talking 'Computer' games. Then Dune on the Amiga just looked awesome in dialogue. Unreal Tournament with the S3 texture pack was amazing. I'm sure I spent a couple of hours just walking up to walls trying to see all the detail.

    Re: QOTW: Which is the most visually stunning computer game?

    I keep taking screen shots in Elite Dangerous as you get some very pretty scenery.

    I think the last time I thought "that isn't possible" was probably Unreal. Before that was DooM (the original one). Hard to choose between the two as a winner.

    Runner up prize for Jet Set Radio on the Dreamcast for the eye catching cel rendering, and also on DC for Metropolis Street Racer. Those are really old games now, and the graphics still look OK.

    Far Cry 1. That game was so amazing. I played that on an old Gateway FX desktop with a Dual Core Pentium D and a GeForce 6600 on high settings. "Wow." Nowadays my shout out would have to go to something like Tomb Raider because Lara Croft looks awesome in that game. Watch Dogs for its representation of Chicago, or Skyrim simply because i haven't gotten my hands on Witcher 3 yet.

    Re: QOTW: Which is the most visually stunning computer game?

    Skyrim with mods, Witcher 3, Project Cars, Crysis 3, Metro Last Light. Those from the modern titles.
    From the past, I agree that since Doom (1), Half Life 2 had one of the biggest leaps in terms of appearance compared to everything else. Crysis 1 had a very similar effect with it being the benchmark for quite some time.

    Re: QOTW: Which is the most visually stunning computer game?

    Oblivion was the game that did that for me, from the first opening sequence to running through the prison and that first moment staring out into the world were the moment when I felt that computer game graphics had finally reached movie quality.

    Unreal - at the time, it blew me away. Far Cry was very notable too.

    Obviously, the Crysis series is up there.

    More recently, there were moments in Dear Esther that left me slack-jawed.

    Crysis on PC with everything racked up. Computer couldn't handle it mind, but was nice getting screenshots at 3fps...

    Super Mario 64 made my jaw drop when I first saw it. I don't think I've had a moment like that since.

    GTA 5.

    It's probably not the most groundbreaking game engine on the market, but GTA 5 is just *so* well executed and optimized that it's nothing short of stunning to play on next-gen consoles and PC. Some of the in-game screenshots I've taken are just absolutely incredible.

    For it's day, everquest2 - it's graphics well surpassed the available hardware at the time.
    Mario64 was also an example of a "game changer" graphically.
