At least five or six people must have worked on that beauty.  It's a shame they didn't talk to each other at all throughout the whole process, which must have taken them a good hour.

I think good old fashioned shame prevented that.

between cover art and the game style is the reason I may not buy a game. I don't care, usually about cover art if it's a good game. But I have seen some real weird ones, though.
When all else fails, CHEAT!!!

Should add Madden and Call of Duty. There's a lot of games you posted FA that I wouldn't play if anyone payed me to. Jeez.

Yes indeed.

Homoeroticism, thy name is cover art.

Two titles for the price of one.

Nothing to see here, move along, quickly now.

It's the title that really sinks it.  How could you have good cover art for that title.
Posted Image

Definite contender.

Honest, at least.

Gone badly wrong.

One of the laziest, certainly.

Childhood memories now smeared with faeces.

A double crime here, given the excellence of the game and the wonderful European box art, the North American cover is nothing less than a tragedy.

To poledance?

Nintendo try to emulate Sega's gridded cover art skillz and get it wrong.

That's a pretty good job.  Surely there's money to be made doing faux-retro posters for modern games?  :clapping:

The hair, the shades, the enormously fat forearm.

That is how you ride a skateboard.
Posted Image

Not just lazy but shit by association.
Posted Image

Not just one, but two.
Posted Image

An extremely carp-faced Willow.

The scissors represent castration anxiety.  The rest of the cover represents a supreme lack of time, effort, and money.
Posted Image

Swords growing out of your shoulders, shooting a robot in the face, while doing a jig.  Now that's a real hero.

It is the expression that elevates it beyond the norm.  Surely that's one of the shots the photographer swore he wouldn't use.

Classic PlayStation title!

Argh, after viewing the last couple of pages in this thread (and I think following one of the links), I'm starting to get some of these games that are still in circulation showing up as Sponsored Links in my eBay screens. teh Horror!

Well, more the fact they're still in circulation than anything else.
