Thank you for posting this. That is, indeed, quite a sight.

It is, isn't it? Wait till you play it. That's when your jaw truly unhinges itself.

While I've only posted beautiful landscapes so far, that's not all Xenoblade has going for it. There are quite a few visceral and surreal experiences to be had; my favorites being the, uh, "introspective one on ones" with Alvis while you float through the emptiness of space. How do I put it... it's like it instills an all-encompassing sense of serenity in you.

Once again, only click these if you've beaten the game:

Xenoblade is one mindfuck of a game. I love it!

Here's one more from Enslaved. Cloud surfing was awesome!

*EDIT* Found the link that's prolly is the opening sequence.

I'm surprised the Alpha version included the option to hide from the enemies, which was a feature Id talked about before the release, but unfortunately left out from the game in the end.

It certainly messes with you a bunch of times. :P

Anywho, this is a compilation of the relatively short glimpses of all the areas you get from the title screen, and it shows off the game's beauty and scale much better than some of the shots I've posted.

Stay away if you haven't already played XB and don't want to have the areas spoiled for you, of course.

Bioshock's Rapture Topside Introduction/Transition and Entire Game

It's mentioned so much for a reason.

I'd add the Amusement Park beginning section of Silent Hill 3 as one long sequence of terror, strange, and disturbing.

It took this thread!?! Seriously, U2 is one of the best games this gen. U1 and U3 are also fantastic, but there is something truly special about 2, magical even.

I really loved that whole segment. It was the soundtrack that made it I think; riding the Cloud and hovering over the waters coalesced seamlessly with that gorgeous score.

I dunno if it was because I was young but one that sticks out in my head was when you saw the T-Rex in the original tomb raider. I had no idea it was in the game and was just "W.....T.....F" ruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuun.

Was a very memorable moment.

Yea I'm glad I snatched up the collector's edition with the soundtrack CD. Totally rad score.

The blur from upscaling + the blur from the Wii crappy component output really hurt the experience for me. I'm sure I would have enjoyed it considerably more if I could have had cleaner image quality.

That moment in the first level of Mickey Mouse Castle of Illusion, when it suddenly gets dark and stormy in the forest. I only had a NES back then, and my mind was blown when I played that at a shop.

Also, lots of the scenery and architecture in Darksiders 2 is really impressive. I love how you can often see the Tree of Life/Death somewhere in the distance, no matter where you are. Great art design in that game.

Yup, those and Journey are tempting me to get a PS3. I won't though, because my main TV is an old CRT that doesn't even have component video inputs.

Battlefield 3 without color grading [and film grain, in this shot] has some great scenery.

This as a multiplayer map would make me stop and appreciate it for a second.

As people were saying it's wipeout 2048 (vita) should have mentioned that in the post, my bad. Speed lap mode (like time trial).

There is a full video (but no sound, which is a shame) of the track here:
