EDIT : with screens please :)

For me it would be either :


GOW3 For the scale

or


Xenoblade For the vastness

I may add some via editing, but those two are the most striking right mow.


Uncharted 2 collapsing building (for the action sequence)

I've always liked the ODST drop sequence.

edit: oh wait, does it have to include game play as well?

The Scarecrow sequence in Batman Arkham Asylum.

The part where Batman walks and his eyes become red, the camera is pitching, the morgue...

Fantastic.

I don't care if they giant themselves weren't very detailed, the action was insane. Everyone falling off of the sword!

All of Journey, the lava stage towards the end of Mario Galaxy and all of Uncharted 2's Tibet.

Mario Galaxy: Around 1:20-2:00 is absolutely amazing on such old hardware.

Journey: Just buy the game. The whole damn thing is beautiful to look at. That scene with the sand surfing in the gifs is particularly mesmerizing.

Uncharted 2: What more can I say?... wait I think I have more!

CyberConnect's Naruto games: I've played Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 and there's almost no difference between gameplay and QTEs segments, gameplay flow is marvelous.

Really most of FFXIII comes to mind here. The CG scenes, Eden, Orphan's Cradle, Taejin's Tower, Lake Bresha, and on. Gorgeous game.

Journey's sunset surf is another great one.

In no specific order:

1. Journey

2. Uncharted 2 Nepal

3. GoW3 intro

4. Uncharted 3 last level intro

5. ME2 (free dlc) ship wreck location (it was both serene and awe inspiring)

6. ME2 (Kasumi Stolen Memory DLC) looking out of the mansion and into the distance on Bekenstein

The first hour of God of War 3, I wish the whole game would've been that awesome.

The first time I set foot in Afterlife in Mass Effect 2, for some reason it felt great and the music was nice too, Purgatory does not even come close.

Xenoblade has the most breathtaking scenery I've ever seen in a game. Gaur Plains, in particular, is nothing short of sublime.

The whole of FF7, FF9, Legend of Mana, Kings Quests, Whispered World etc

Each area in these games is like a separate (and rather stunning) work of art

Much of Lost Odyssey, FF10, Fable 1-2-3, Dark Souls too

Some of the views in Dark Souls look straight out of an art book.

Best part is it's not just scenery like in uncharted or all its clones. They are places you actually go to that you are simply looking at from far away.

How there was ever any question about releasing this game stateside is beyond me. Do not make us wait to long for the follow-up.
