The YouTube video also explains why Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is above Alan Wake 2 with the difference in scale between the two games being the main reason. Mackenzie further expanded on this, saying that it takes a lot more effort and system-driven power to make an AAA open-world like Avatar’s look good.
Of course, Alan Wake 2 is also a beautiful game, but according to Digital Foundry, its linear limited state makes the rendering much easier. Hence, even though both are very different, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora just takes the cake because of how massive and well-designed its game world is.

Xbox exclusive Hi-Fi Rush also got a mention at number 6 while the highly successful Resident Evil 4 managed to snatch the number 7 spot. In addition, Robocop: Rogue City continues its hot streak, ending up at the eighth spot following its commercial and critical success.
