Great call, Ceekay.  That's the only Ultima box that I still own.

I reserve the right to declare my favorite box art at a later date, but for the moment I'll say that I've always been partial to



This one is good, too:

Oh, and don't forget:



It may seem like an odd choice, but compared to every other game on store shelves, a stark, midnight-black box really caught the eye and conveyed exactly the sense of unease and forboding The Avatar felt upon returning to Britannia this time around.  It was a brilliant marketing choice.

The only thing that marred that box was that damnable Voodo Memory Management System the game used  :evil:

Something about that Spellforce box makes me want to sneeze.  Or rather, for her to sneeze.

Max payne is cheap now, i think i seen the game at ebgames for 7.99. I wonder could ATI 7000 64MB handle the game.

Do anyone know if the graphics are a big difference from Max payne 1?

3 nominees, all old school; sorry no pix:

(1) Civilization . The box for the original civ, all done in a white paper/sculptured style. Great effect. Timeless, classic,  & just plain beeeeauuuutiful. Easily my favorite "looking" box ever.

(2) System Shock. First SS. Highly textured  "oil painting " (or simirl high texture) of protagonist w/ cool glasses/specs on. Very very creepy &  nicely intimidating.

(3) Icewind Dale. Loved the bleak "tree logo" of IWD - like some old remote inn's worn & beaten roadsign - seemed to just say brrrr cold- cool stuff is inside here.

Honorable mention to Bioforge, already previously cited.

As to more recent titles, I also like the already mentioned Evil Genius
