The Daily Grind: Which MMO boasts the best graphics as of 2023?


We all know that there is no right or wrong answer to this question, right? Plenty of photorealistic games look like trash, and plenty of cartoony games are gorgeous. This question is about overall aesthetics. For my pick, and even though I’m not actively playing it, I want to nod to New World: Rise of the Angry Earth is really stunning, and I am constantly impressed by the high-quality of screenshots out of this game. It’s right up there with the likes of Elder Scrolls Online and FFXIV now.

If I could have an offbeat runner-up, I’d go with Albion Online, which I realize is a bit more of a cartoony title, but it spent quite a bit of effort beefing up the aesthetics of its game world and biomes this year, and I just frankly love it.
