That's because initially video games was made by a bunch of nerds, who love fairy tales, legends, beautiful elves, mysterious forests, shiny fairies with small bells, noble heroes etc. This people never was "professional designers", so they didn't know about any designer rules, they were creating what they liked themselves.
And after some time, when video games had been turned into profit industry, there was a wave of pandering to the basic audience, who cannot understand, who thinks, that fairy tales are for children only.
And even later there was a very lazy designers, who didn't want to work yet wanted to get money, so they started brown-and-gray wave, "let's just slap some color filter" wave, "square instead of an interface is good" wave (that's mostly about win8-10 and related stuff, but also about website design) etc. This lazy faggots and wider audience had brought current state of AAA games, where being able to render 2666557344745 of beard hairs on a random boring "realistic" NPC is considered more important than making this beard looking impressive on impressive and interesting character.
Oh, there is other type of bad designers - they make "calarts" of video games - fortnight, overwatch and other games, where all surfaces and character details look too round and smooth as if they were created for 2 years old with same mold for every game.

Artistry. Modern games are done piecemeal, large teams going for "realism", you make this texture look like that, you make that look like this, now let's fix them all together into something satisfactory, like it came off an assembly line (because it did). Games with vision have artists who see the whole picture, who can step back and see the light and shadow and color of a scene and render something as vivid as their imaginations. They start with what they want a scene to convey, and then pull out the necessary elements to make it happen. It's unironically like pic related, if you've ever read it.
