Graphics != art

It might be a sign of growing up (sadly) but I can be totally reticent towards a game unless it has good art. Not just good graphics. Art. Those games make me sit up and within 20 seconds I'll say DAMN! I WANT TO PLAY THAT! We are finally here, where flashy graphics have peaked and now "graphics" in games can be judged on their art direction. Here are some examples.

None of this Quake4 or F.E.A.R bullshit! :)

EDIT : Artificial Studios has been bought out by Epic. The Reality Engine features are going to be folded into Unreal Engine 3 (UE3). I'm hoping this doesn't impact the development of those titles. Almost all of them have incredible potential, I've never seen a better quality of lineup on any engine vendor's sites. Not even Epic and their bajillion licensees..

Looks like they'll get to use the engine until the same features are folded into UE3 at which point they'll get a discount on UE3. Hopefully they can ship before then, otherwise as much as I wouldn't wish it on them, they'd have to port to Unreal and likely have to do a complete rewrite. Their publishers must all be shitting bricks right now.
