Abandonware DOS title

The most popular beautiful graphics games

The concept of beauty is often very personal. Beauty is in the eye of the watcher, even when we're talking about video games. A first-person 3D game could be a joy for the eyes of some gamer or a pain to others. Pixel graphics is often considered beautiful if the player grew up playing in a decade when games were almost entirely pixellated. Lots of old games are considered aesthetically pleasing even today: Another World is still a beautiful game to most of us, and so is true for Loom (those wonderfully colored backgrounds!) and many others.
