Yeah the font they used in A Mind Forever Voyaging was amazing.
Sorry, I take it you mean the imagery? If so I need to go back and play that one. For a text adventure to be here it must be written well.

Are you a big IF fan then, Gordon? Good man.
Myself, I would go for ICO and Morrowind.

X3 - Reunion on the PC and Oblivion also on the PC.
I've played loads of graphically accomplished games on a lot of formats in the last year or two but the two mentioned are probably the only ones with environments that can be described as beautiful.
Feel free to add me on XBL.

The games that impressed me most (the most beautiful):
Rez (PS2 and DC)
Street Fighter III: Third Strike (DC)
Soul Calibur II (PS2, XBOX and NGC)
Need For Speed: Underground (PC, PS2, XBOX, NGC)
Need For Speed: Underground 2 (PC, PS2, XBOX, NGC)
at least, they were impressive when I first saw them!

When you emerge from the sewers into the open world - Oblivion is stunning.
Half Life 2 was just as stunning in 2004.
