When you want to create a game without access to artistic talent to create artwork, you could go for a graphic style which is rather abstract than representative. You could, for example, represent all gameplay objects with geometric shapes, like in Geometry Wars.
Some games, such as roguelikes, feature graphics made up of nothing but colored ASCII characters. Dwarf fortress is a deep and complex game modeled after roguelikes. Here's what its graphics look like:
Making it look childish isn't a bad idea at hindsight. Look at An Untitled Story.
Vector art. Check Revange of the Titans.
