The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt looks stunning. Playing as Geralt of Rivia, you are taken on a journey through the Northern Kingdoms of a fantastically well-realized fantasy world. It is an open-world roleplaying game that has won numerous 2015 Game of the Year awards from organizations such as Gamespot, Golden Joystick Awards, and The Game Awards.

Visually, it is simply one of the best looking games ever released. Though open-world role playing games often skimp a bit on visuals, this is not the case in The Witcher 3.
