18. Enslaved: Odyssey to the West
The loose remake of Journey to the West takes place about 150 years after a catastrophic event that befell the Earth -- a horrible global war -- and the only shards of humanity left are scattered throughout the globe. Despite the Earth having been nearly been obliterated, in stark contrast to the rest of the list it's still lush and verdant, making Enslaved one of the better-looking games on our list. Good thing Monkey's not to be trifled with.
