Default Top Artistic Games

Was wondering what everyones opinion on the best use of Art Style in a game, now Im not talking about graphics or general graphic effects but basically what game made you go awe at how wonderfully everything was created and looked.

Now I know this ties in graphics aswell but many games have great engines but dont accomplish anything interesting artistic wise.

Here are my top 5...

1) ICO
2) Chrono Trigger
3) Soul Reaver 2
4) The Longest Journey
5) Final Fantasy VII

Hmm, I think the main game that stands out in my mind as artistic is Ecco The Dolphin: Defender of the Future. Some of the designs were just awe-inspiring, it's amazing how they managed to make levels comprised of foggy water so engaging (Hanging Waters > Every other game level ever created combined). ICO I also felt looked really nice, and the upcoming Okami has a very unique style to it. Phantom Dust is also another one, from the videos of it I've seen.

In no particular order

A) ICO (and almost certainly the sequel, Wanda and the Colossus)
#) MGS parts 2 and 3
&) Katamari Damashii
*) Myst/Riven
+) Wind Waker
/) Disgaea - not a real winner in the eye candy department, but the presentation was new to me and I think it deserves a mention
Q) Dragon Warrior 8. Looks really very well done.
!) Chrono Trigger
~) Half-Life 2 - great art direction
X) Far Cry - also some great art direction

There are others, but I can't think of 'em off the top of my head.
