The Worst Videogame Box Covers

April 3rd, 2007 by Jerome Dahdah

worstvideogamecovers.jpgJudging a game by its packaging is like judging a book by its cover. Kinda pointless, but let’s face it, we all do that from time to time. So, Captain Obvious will tell us that designing a good game box cover that arouses interest and makes you go “wow, I must leave my money here!” is essential for getting your product out to everyone that doesn’t read game reviews all day. Most covers are pretty clich├ęd, but sometimes, they are so badly designed it’s surprising they were ever let out into the wild. 1up.com has dug through the archives and come up with 15 of the worst video game covers ever in a hilarious review. I just love the “Irritating Stick” one. Simply brilliant.

    I dunno they seem pretty cool to me. I think their stupidity alone would sell now. Reminds me of the ps2 game that came out a while back that came with a vibrator for women. So as the guy played the game and the levels got more difficult the vibrator got more vibey. If I can find the game I will link it it was more messed up than these.

    Some of them really suck, some of them are really cool/retro/uber.

    The best cover for a video-game: Quake1.
