I remember a couple that blew me away with their backgrounds when they first came out.

Kings Quest V - the first in the series to be in 256 color VGA graphics, though later they went back and updated the first one, not sure about the rest. At the time I thought KQV was the best looking game I had ever seen.

The Pawn - this was a text adventure, but each location had a screen shot that you could pull down from the top menu to see the location. This was one of the first 16 color EGA games I had ever played. Interestingly enough, Dragon Magazine reviewed it and gave it 4 stars out of 5 if you had an EGA board, 2.5 stars if you didn't.
