Stuff like El Shaddai, Ico, SotC, Psychonauts, Xenoblade etc? Pretty new to PC gaming so I'm looking for some interesting looking games.

Isn't this subjective?

Have you played Superbrothers Sword & Sorcery?

Yes it is subjective, but I'm just looking for some ideas on what to play. And Superbrothers is exactly the type of thing I'm looking for. Just stuff that makes you kinda think "wow that's cool looking." Other good examples are like Rez, Journey, Braid...

If you haven't played psychonauts yet, you do yourself a disservice by not getting it.

Terraria has a really nice art direction. As for being like what you listed, eh not really.

Dust: An Elysian Tail
Aquaria
Trine and Trine 2
Bastion
most SHMUPs
Sanctum (wouldn't have brought this up normally but it reminds me a lot of El Shaddai's art style)
Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams
Borderlands & Borderlands 2 (BL2 especially)
Faerie Solitaire
Botanicula

These are all have great unique takes on art. Additionally, some parts of BioShock Infinite have really interesting art
