The Witcher 3 will look great! Dishonored 2. Not quite AAA, but gloriously beautiful if you want to use your brain to figure out huge puzzles: The Talos Principle.

If you like survival and esploration Subnautica XD looks great in 4k so would be the same at 1440p.
Metal Gear Solid 5 the same + all the games mentioned above XD.
