Best water in video games

Which video games have the best-looking water?

I know it's rather stylized, but I enjoyed the look and feel of the water in RiME

especially in the rainy sections

It's always going to be stylised, if not then it's just trying to be real, and that should all look the same.

So I choose Drift Stage, which just looks fucking brilliant in every way.

I get that water isn't exactly the most important detail in a racing game and it's far from a triple A game, but would it really have killed the performance that much to make it a gradient instead of bars of somewhat different shades of blue? I mean, they did make a very short fade-in gradient for the copy-paste pattern where it disappears and turns into deep water.

Pikmin 2 has, hands down, the most realistic water on the Gamecube. If we are talking stylized water, then I personally like the look of the Great Ocean in both Wind Waker and Phantom Hourglass.




Also Minecraft's water looks decent. *Nedben is heard screeching in the distance*.

I like the way water looks in Final Fantasy XV. The ocean and stuff is impressive, but what really gets me is when things get wet. Like, when it rains, Noctis's hair and clothes are visibly soaked to the point that I can sympathize with how uncomfortable it looks, and he stays soaked even when it stops raining until his clothes slowly and naturally dry off. It's really impressive, huh.

Giant Squid's first game. It takes place in an ocean teeming with aquatic animals and plants.

^Agree, think I would give it to Abzu also. Uncharted 4 is gorgeous as well.
