2. Sly Cooper/Racoon and the Thievius Raccoonus

Brian Flemming of Sucker Punch, the developers of the series, refers to the game's graphical style as 'toon shading' comparing it to that of animated movies and also because they wanted the game to look illustrated.

It certainly feels like you're jumping into a Saturday morning cartoon or flicking through a comic book.

The later games kept this style and to great effect.

The cel-shaded effect really shines through these games and it's a true delight as you explore each environment, giving them all a unique feel of identity.
