Eye candy

Quick Definition

"Eye candy" is a silly term for anything that looks nice or is visually appealing -- or to put it another way, it's like candy for your eyes. Note that it doesn't need to actually do anything; this is all about appearance.

Many games feature ways to make your character (or the game itself) look nicer. Often, these take the form of skins or DLC packs.
