I have yet to see an environment as beautiful as that of Morrowind.
Morrowinf looks nice, the buildings, the organic houses, they're really breathtaking.
I was a lot more disappointed when it came to Dungeons. They're very linear & allthough Tribunal improved them a bit, it wasn't as impressive as the rest.
Syndicate Wars & Dark Earth were nice too.:grinthumb
Age of Empires 2 was the king of strategy games in the late 90's
What about Fatal Frame? Yeah the gameplay took a little getting used to but once you get the hang of it, it's a really great game! Himuro mansion is wonderfully detailed, not to mention c-r-e-e-p-y. I have always been a fan of the silent hill series, although the i have to say that heather started to irritate me after a while..... at least she wasn't Riku. :dead: But in regards to environments, it was probably the best of the 3, imho.
