The Daily Grind: Which older MMO still looks really pretty?


I’ve been spending more time in RIFT lately due to the expansion announcement, and an observation that’s crossed my mind more than once is that the game is actually still very pretty, even six years into its operation. Sure, it’s not photo-realistic, but I’ve always been partial to some of the creature, building, and environment designs in this MMO.

It’s easy to point to newer MMOs like Black Desert and praise them for their graphical fidelity, but what about older titles? Are there any games five years or older that you consider still quite attractive to behold? Share your thoughts in the comments — and screenshots are a plus!
