    Solid list but it`s hard to narrow all games down to just 10.

    Okami was Freeking awesome. Good luck getting a hold of any version other than the Wii version, which is lame, because it is a port.

    No matter what games were included, people would complain that certain games weren`t there...

    I think it`s an alright list, but i didn`t like XIII personally...

    I own okami, shadow of the colossus and team fortress 2. The former two are absolutely incredible. If you have a PS2, buy these games NOW. I don`t care if you already have them. BUY THEM AGAIN!

    And team fortress 2 is good. Not what I`d class as an arty game though. Finally, where was flOw?

    ok, so i thought the list was ok, windwaker was full of win, shadow of the colossus was epic, and i heard okami is good too...i dont know what everyones complaining about.

    sure the others suck, but you cant have a perfect top ten now

    Egh. Some of these are more games that pioneered new artistic styles (Grim Fandango) that games that are currently state-of-the-art in, er, art. (Shadow of the Colossus)

    Yay for the Psychonauts love in the description, guys. :3

    Haha Pity Okami`s cover art director was lazy and blatantly ripped the cover design off IGN`s website.

    Woah woah woah.. I definitely didn`t see anything from the Myst series there. I`ve only really ever played Riven, but that game was amazing artistically.

    Also I agree with BlackiPod - Rayman (at least Rayman64, I`ve never played the others) was an awesome looking game - definitely should`ve been on there.

    Hey, DFT? What about WIOP1 and 2, and they didn`t even QPPs. I don`t even like AY or IWH7!

    I knew Okami was gonna be in there.
    But, yes, where is Viewtiful Joe and Psychonauts?
    And Katamari should`ve probably been mentioned. It`s so colourful and wacky looking.

    Also, I`m sure there`s a puzzle game which is completely clay animation, but I`ve forgotten it`s name.

    Viewtiful Joe might have been interesting to look at, but in my opinion the gameplay itself was retarded.
    Psychonauts, on the other hand, was a very interesting game both to look at and to play, and it had some really weird plot elements. Dunno why that one would get passed over in favor of Wind Waker.

    Coming from a person who usually hates video games, I LOVED Eternal Sonata because it was so pretty. lol. I agree with whoever said flOw should have been included but it`s probably b/c it`s so simple. :-\

    psychonauts is epic and so is viewtiful joe. i`d hafta disagree with eternal sonata, windwaker and okami is definitely misplaced, psychonauts is an amazing game, though the story is a little lacking, this list needs a recount.
    rez is fun too though

    I am glad Shadow of the Colossus made it on here, it was one of my favorite games ever, but I don`t feel wind waker deserved a spot on the list. Wind waker was one of the only Zelda games I never finished.

    Pro tip: Cell shading doesn`t make a game "art".

    Psychonauts is one of those rare gems of a game THAT YAHTZEE (a.k.a. Ben Croshaw from Zero Punctuation) ACTUALLY LIKES! Alas, it was saddled with the dubious title of "Greatest Game Never Played", because many game critics (GameFAQS, MetaCritic, etc.,) gave it a 9 out of 10 or a 9.5 out of 10. But, financially, THE GAME JUST FAILED. Very few people actually bought it. Hell, I got the game on CD (It`s for PC and XBox, i think) for 4 USD! (U.S. dollars)

    So like kingdom hearts is not like a masterful work of art. Amazingly designed game mechanics, with an extremely compelling and well told story.
