Don't think there are that many standouts personally, but here are my favorites.

Borderlands has such a great cover. I also like Dragon Age 2's very much:


And some other I like the look of:

Though the US art for Sin & Punishment was fine, I liked the JP cover a bit better.



A couple of others that come to mind.

borderlands one and maybe one or two others are the only ones that deserve mention in this thread.

Always loved the Euro MGS4 boxart. Simple yet tasteful.



Folklore boxart was pretty nice too.

Worst is this....



Strange considering it contains the best game this gen.

From my collection:

360



With Alan Wake I'm referring to the logo, not the box art as a whole, the "Psychological Action Fart" line is totally stupid.

XBI


XBLA


PSP


Brave Story's art actually isn't that great, but the sideways box art is really nifty.

PS3


Wii


DS


Big Bang Mini is lenticular, the silver in Final Fantasy IV is some kind of shiny ink. Picross 3d is actually a pretty shitty box as a whole because it's crammed full of obnoxious "hey idiot buy this game" info, but the actual art in the center is very nice.

(editing photos in now)
