LIMBO was absolutely beautiful... the first time that I played it. It's a shame, once you know what to expect the atmosphere is ruined. The game has no replay value.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent has an amazingly beautiful setting considering how "bad" the graphics are by modern standards. It's one of the few games that I felt truly immersed in.
Based off the little I have seen so far Tales of Graces F and Tales of Xillia look to have pretty awesome looking worlds if you ask me.
the game world i think is beautiful is the one is Bully. even though it comes off as the ultimate yuppie new england town with some poor areas attached it grows on ya after the fiftieth hour of playin the game.
I think we can all just keep going on and on about the most beautiful world, but i really like the way the pokemon world shows more detail in their cities. like the way they showed that bridge in black or white, it was truly enjoyable

I seriously hope you guys think this too.
That came out wrong, and yet not edit button.
Still, Lords of Shadow. Good looking game.
I personally think that the Underworld from Terranigma has to win this. Yes, the majority of it is dank, dark and dominated by imposing towers, and Crysta is pretty much a carbon copy of Storkholm (not a typo, just imaginative naming on the part of Quintet for their Scandinavian town) on the surface world, but considering that town's been absolutely ravaged and destroyed it doesn't count. Just walking around the town of Crysta at the beginning, with life going on as normal, crystal blue floating in the air above you, just gives the best impression of homeliness of any game ever, which I find absolutely beautiful. This is part of the reason I found the end of that game so particularly emotional.
Red Dead Redemption
Final Fantasy VII
Uncharted 2 and 3
Batman: Arkham Asylum
Mass Effect 2
Mass Effect 1 & 2 planets are just beautiful. Bioware makes them almost believable.

Skyboxes where impressive, but the terrain on uncharted worlds was kind of eh. Still, Virmire and Ilos both look so good.

The fact that you could scan the environment and read ruins for details about the history and biology of the planet gave the world a lot of depth. Also, the graphics were quite pretty compared to the standards at the time.
Even now the game looks damn good. Sure, it's not all fancy HD graphics but it's definitely something to admire for the environments the game provided. While I prefer the sequel slightly more, I felt Tallon IV was the more ideal overworld for covering sand, arctic, lava and other environments.

I don't know about you but playing through Fallout the color scheme reminded me of shit. That nasty colored green shit.
Ahh....Good question. Throughout my childhood and even now there is always a certain few that stand out as being "beautiful". When I read through the thread, these are what came to mind:
Specifically the old Playstation originals. Crash Bandicoot and Crash Bandicoot 2. Nothing beats wandering around on the Wumpa Islands looking for crystals while dodging rolling boulders, killer bees, and jumping across pits on the way. This was the first games series that I really loved. Nonetheless, the graphics and the design of the world was killer.
Really loved playing this one on the 360. Open world, lots to do. The quests were fun, but the world was just awesome. Based in the desert, New Vegas also had biuldings, mountains, rivers, cliffs, and overall had a good feel to it. Sort of like Skyrim. New Vegas' primary environment was desert, and Bethesda did a good job making the player think they were actually there.
I'm sorry all you CoD lovers who hate Halo, but you knew this one was coming. Or did you? Anyhow, Reach is my #1 just because it's Reach. Like c'mon, who doesn't want to chase down wild emu things with an army jeep? Or snipe an Elite in the back of the head from cliff? Yes, this game had it all......even if you're a CoD fanboy you have to agree with me that Reach's world design, colour, and graphics were genius, were they not? Every single mission of the campaign was new and exciting and filled with diversity and colours. The firefight maps wee impressive too. I'm banking on Halo Reach being the most beautiful video game world.

I always liked the beach levels in Super Mario Galaxy. The water just looks so good.
If there was an HD remake of Super Mario Sunshine (Which I hope to God there isn't) I would jizz for the amusement park entrance area and the beach level.
Final fantasy 12 in MOH wins the "most beautiful" world... its so lush and full of life...
such a wonderful place :3
Bastion-Not only for it's lush handpainted like graphics, but it's stunning soundtrack and narration, it's so hard not to be engrossed the entire time in it's beauty
Final Fantasy IX-Prettiest thing on the Ps1
The Elder Scrolls III-Morrowind: It might not be in HD, but I felt Morrowind's world was much prettier then say Cyrodill and Skryim, Cyrodill was very pretty, but rather generic, and Skryim is just a big grey mess imo
Mass Effect Series: sure some of the unmapped worlds were kinda uninspired, but almost everywhere else in the game was really good, the same goes for KOTOR and KOTOR II
Fable: For it's time Albion was a realllllly good looking.
Flow and Flower: Stunning
The Bit Trip Series: Maybe it's for the nostagia of old, but I think the Bit Trip series looks wonderful
The Metroid Prime Series: 0_0
Halo 2 and Reach: Both were really, really good. Reach was such an interesting looking planet.
Monster Hunter Freedom 2 and Monster Hunter Tri: Both World's were stunning, and both pushed the power of their systems to do so :)
Final Fantasy X: To this Day, the most (Imo) the most beautiful RPG world I've ever set out in
Dragon Quest VIII: My favorite use of Cell Shading to this day, though other recent titles do a really good job as well (Tales Series, Eternal Sonata, etc)
Metal Gear Solid III: I guess this one is just in the eye of the beholder, but man, did that game ever look so good to me, those Jungles were so engrossing for me, the animations on the animals, your camo's, it was a diffrent sort of beauty, but idk, it counts to me.
Sin is honoring desire over what is right
nothing more beautiful than an endless wasteland
"Better to reign in Hell, than serve in Heaven" - John Milton
My favorites are...
Basically anything that's done in a more artistic fashion and is brought to life with a vibrant and exciting color scheme.
Beyond Good & Evil has quite a few good sceneries and creativity character/alien/animals designs.
Skyrim played on good television is scenery porn.
Same goes for Red Dead Redemption.
LoZ Ocarina of Time is still standing strong in my point of view.
The kanto region from pokemon.
The world of Erion from the game Odin Sphere and also BTW one of the best games I ever played based on story.
Something, something, something
