Luigi's Mansion 3 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Luigi's Mansion 3 has incredible attention to detail and animation.

MK8D hasn't aged a day since it launched almost 8 years ago, and it runs perfectly both docked and in handheld mode.

At least 2'8".

True Dragon Ball fighterz is good. I'm impressed with Neko Tomo & Luigi's mansion 3. Haven't gone back to animal crossing yet since playing Neko Tomo lol~ ūü§£

Happy Gaming! (^~^)

Surprised no-one has mentioned Tetris Effect as of yet. Beautiful visuals and an incredible soundtrack.

Currently playing: Siralim Ultimate (Steam)
Otherwise: Nothing else. The above game is stealing all my free time at the moment :O

ARMS shows that good visual style and polish is how you make a game look great on weak hardware. Nothing technically impressive going on, but still a beautiful game.
I also find Bayonetta, Mario Kart 8, Odyssey, Splatoon, and Luigi's Mansion 3 nice to look at.

@CactusMan 2D games is a good shout, I agree Cuphead looks great! Also, Metroid Dread, Gris, the Ori games and Yooka Laylee and the impossible lair all look great.

Absolutely Dragon Quest XI S. What a beautiful world. And certainly not as much of a technical achievement, but Doraemon Story of Seasons is a watercolor picturebook come to life.

Bit of a cheat but Skyward Sword HD. Technically it looks about as good as it did on the Wii if the Wii had rendered at a higher resolution. But still, that art style did a lot of heavy lifting on the Wii and still holds up

Bayonetta 2 and Blue Reflection 2 for me.

The PSVR is the best VR system on the market today.

A great art style transcends technical limitations, so no complaints from me. I've already mentioned Okami for similar reasons, and plenty of 2D games have come up.

That said, it's been remarked upon that one of the nicest features of the Wii version was that once you got past a certain draw distance everything blended into a painting-like backdrop, which was a truly wonderful effect. With everything remaining sharp for much longer, you don't quite get that on the Switch, although it all looks much more detailed when nearby.

It's also 60fps though and the boatload of QoL improvements easily make it the definitive version to play.

Botw, not technically the best but it is the best looking if that makes sense.

@blindsquarel No your comment makes perfect sense. Botw isn't the most technically impressive game but you think it's the best looking one.

Good... good
Now play Dragon Quest

Artistically, Breath of the Wild. Nothing I've played on the Switch comes close. But it's not a technical showcase: lots of pop-in and frame-rate issues. Odyssey, Astral Chain, and Luigi's Mansion 3 surpass it, technically-speaking. But I give Breath of the Wild the edge when all is said and done.

@Beaucine I would argue that Botw while has some performance issues, it's still technically impressive especially with its use of physics throughout it's whole map. Even to this day people are finding more exploits and funny uses of the physics engine.

Good... good

@CactusMan Late reply but of course 2D games are allowed!
I even used Octopath as an example in my original post.

I'll throw something completely different into the ring. Miitopia. Super sharp and brightly colored. Awesome game, lol.

The Switch may be underpowered compared to its own competition, but that doesn't mean it can't have amazing looking games.

I am always impressed when another "impossible" port comes out for the switch, which shows what that tiny thing is capable of.

In case of graphical fidelities on switch these are mine currently:

-Ori and the blind forest/ will of the wisps
-Crysis 2
-Super Mario Odyssey
-The Witcher 3
-Astral Chain

FAVOURITE GAME: Super Mario Odyssey
FAVOURITE OST: Deus Ex: Human Revolution
