Infamous: Second Son is the Derek Zoolander of next-gen games: It is really, really, ridiculously good-looking. To put it in technical terms, there are a hell of a lot of graphics in this game.
Okay, actually, that's not very technical. But in my largely un-technical estimation, Second Son has the best visuals I've seen in a next-gen console game by a wide margin, and I was regularly gobsmacked by it all. The first time I fired off some neon powers in a darkened room, I couldn't help but grin at the colors sparkling and bouncing off of one another, shadows dancing like crazy. The lighting effects, the superpowers, and the seemingly endless draw-distance, letting you see the far corners of Seattle as you survey the horizon. There's more to a game than mere visual effects, but sometimes it's nice to simply allow yourself to be dazzled.
