Ori and Rayman Origins/Legends

Since no one has mentioned it yet, I'm gonna say Ori and the Blind Forest.

Yeah, that game is gorgeous. Surprising that it wasn't mentioned more.

I'm currently playing Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir and it has one of the nicest art styles I've come across in a while, and there's something about the animation I really like too. Are there better ones? Depends on taste I guess, and some of my other picks are already in this thread, but given the game is fresh in my mind (Due to, y'know, still playing it), I'm gonna' go with it.

This a very tough question. Cuphead, Ori, and Trine are all great examples, but we could go on with more and more entries. I guess another one is Child of Light. There are several faults with the style, such as with the character models, but the decadent look of it is astonishing as well.

My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first. 

I forgot Gris.

West of Loathing.

Y'all can't understand the pureness of this minimalistic artstyle !

Hollow Knight. Its both beautiful and atmospheric.

Other candidates for me are Rayman Legends, Owlboy, Trine and of course, Tetris.
Havent played Ori tho.

New Super Mario Bros Wii ....when I saw it had 4 player coop I cried with joy lol

...but seriously I'd say Odin's Sphere. I love Vanillaware art style.
