So I just saw a thread for most 'unappealing boxt art ever" (lol Rayfield :)) and thought: Why not start a thread for most APPEALING box art ever? 
So here is that thread, and by the way, the typo is intentional :P

For me, one of the best box art has to be the box art for Soldier of Fortune 2.

Dude. Relax.

 
Now it is your turn Giantbomb. Which game box art is most appealing to you?

I couldn't tell you how many times I've almost re-purchased Fallout 3 because of the GOTY box art.

I really like the original European boxart for Resident Evil 4. It's just so atmospheric.

This, original GameCube RE4 boxart is amazing. It's the best boxart I own anyways, maybe Ico a close second.
