I was thinking about Ultima Underworld II when I saw the topictitle. Good choice bro ( 😜 ) !

Others already mentioned Ultima boxes: Ultima 5 and Ultima 8 are very nice, too.

One that I like much is the Star Goose box. The box of Settlers II is high on my list as well but I'm probably biased because I like that game a lot.
I think that the image is a magazine scan but the artwork is identical to the boxed version.

I've never heard of StarGoose before. I would have love to have that on my Olivetti M24 back in the late 80's.

Monkey Island 2

A classic. I was torn between this and the original's, however I didn't play SOMI until many years I had played MI2 and CMI and as such it had less of an impact on me. As a result, I find this game's cover iconic.

Steve Purcell's art is fire on this one!!

Ultima VI

You like the covers of IV and VI more than V?

Ultima V

No I think that the cover of Ultima IV is best

I never liked its Moses strikes the Red Sea with his staff imagery but to each their own, no?

My personal favorite is Quest for Glory III Wages of War.
When I was a kid, I actually took the sleeve off the box and pinned it to my wall, along with some others of my favorite games.
They eventually became sun-bleached and I had to throw them out, but I've since re-purchased these games with their boxes and I keep them in a nice dark, cool and dry closet space so they won't fade or get dirty.
