Games as Works of Art

Yeah, I'm really impressed with that visual trick they pulled with Hit Z Road. Very clever looking and perfectly ties into the game in a way most games don't even try to. This was gonna be my next purchase before I lost my mind hunting down all the FFG shit that suddenly vanished like a nerdy Alderaan.
Come to find out it is striking because because it is an actual piece of art by Albrecht Altdorfer detailing the Battle of Alexander.
I love this elector count looking dude giving a beastman a point blank face blast of musket.
I also think that the City of Chaos art is really well done.
The Ghostbusters board game that came out last year is nice in that it really adheres to the newer comics since they commissioned the same artist to do all the board game iart.

This is the game I immediately thought of when I read the Thread Title. "Stunning" is the perfect word. Not just for the illustrations, but the entire game experience. Truly a Work of Art!
