Be it PC or console, nothing quite beats the feeling of loading a game for the first time to see what shiny new hardware can deliver in terms of visuals. Watching graphics evolve over the past few decades has been fascinating, with each new generation of hardware bringing something new to the table, yet the best-looking titles don't necessarily have to strive for photo realism.
I remember being amazed by Gods on Amiga. Donkey Kong Country on Super Nintendo had a similar effect, and I couldn't believe my eyes the first time I played Tomb Raider with a Diamond Monster 3dfx card. Such titles had plenty of wow factor back in the day, and modern titles have raised the bar significantly. Playing Forza Horizon 4 on an ultra-wide 144Hz monitor is tremendous, and I've found Ori and the Blind Forest to be one of the most visually-stunning games I've seen in quite a while.
