[Pimp] VG Box Art

Postby [Prey] » Sat Apr 12, 2008 10:05 pm

If like me you are a complete sucker for purdy gaming box art, and often say to yourself "why the fuck did they use that shite artwork on Game X!?".

You will fully appreciate the site below:

I assume those three are of the "why the fuck?" variety, as they're all crap.

I really like the Halo 3 one. Better than the actual box art.

It's a really great idea for a site. Don't like a game's box art? Print out a better one you find here! Although not all of them seem to have printable versions.

I like this style (the GTA 3 one) more than the one Rokcstar decided to run with (Vice City onwards).

In the non-PAL market. Our GTA 3 box was more akin to that mock-GTA IV one posted above.

I prefer the front cover of the box to be simple and striking. Most of these are far too busy. Save the detail for the back cover.

While we're on the nostalgia note, anyone remember this game on megadrive where you were an artist that fell into his comic and then had to fight your way through it?
