What video game magic do you love? Specifically, which video game franchises have the neatest graphical effects? What's cool about them?

I make video games for a living. And I'm compiling reference video to show some options to the team for graphical effects for the magic system in our game.
I have a bunch of examples and video already, but most of it is from games that I know and love. Googling for video game magic in general tends to wind up with somebody trying to teach me how to actually cast an actual spell--for whatever value of "actual" may actually apply.
Anyway, what are great examples from games you know and love?
