8 of the most stylishly realised worlds on Playstation


Rapture, Bioshock

Andrew Ryan’s Rapture is flooded with style. In its leaky decrepit state, it only retains a small glimpse of the underwater grandeur it would’ve exuded in its heyday, but it hasn’t lost any character in its slump to derelict rubble. It oozes with artistic references, from all corners of classic literature and history. From its underwater forest, used to supply the entire city with breathable oxygen, to the terrifying wings of Dr Steinman’s medical center, Rapture is one of the most stylish videogame worlds ever created.
