I saw this thread made in a different forum, and I thought you guys would get a kick out of it. Post the worst box art that you've ever seen (or got from your google search of it XD). These seem to be pretty good picks.

How bad is that? And that's not all.

Mega Man 2 was almost as bad. Least Mega Man 3 had SOME dignity to it.

I think this is the worst I've ever seen in a long time:

Why they didn't just reprint the same box art with a player's choice seal is beyond me.

Hey! Don't diss the old school box art! It was necessary to have that sort of box art to bring your imagination to life when you played those old games with poor graphics. You could study the box to see how your character really looked.

LOL!
When I saw the title of the thread, I immediatly thought of the US Mega Man box art. I don't think I've ever seen such a disgusting piece.

The worst part is, on the first 2 covers, he doesn't have a gun arm. He carries a gun. Lameo.

Not saying it's the worst ever but the Halo 3 case is utter crap, boring as hell and is not cool in any way. Or maybe I'm just that much anti-Halo 3 right now.

I think that this is the worst box art mistake ever. You may not be able to see very well (in person, it quite pronounced) but on the box art of the Wii version of Okami, near Amateratsu's mouth, you can see the IGN watermark:rolleyes: !!

Custer's Revenge. An Atari Game where you play General Custer's vengeful ghost that comes back to rape Indian women tied to cacti while dodging arrows.

What did the game makers have against Sweden? This is slander!

*raises hand*

I own Custards Revenge thank you very much. Its a terrible terrible game, not for the content, but just for how bad it is to play. Seriously, why they didnt put a little effort into making the gameplay as enjoyable as the "action" you are simulating on scream, I have no answers.

Oh. God. Not this game again.
I actually own it.( 10 dollars I would have wasted on a dreamcast game ={ ) I thought it would be about sticking people with a stick.
It's like operation the board game, except there are no body parts to move and if you touch the sides, you lose.

But at least it's name fits the game.

Far better than Marc Ecko's Getting Up : Contents Under Pressure.
Or on the case which clearly reads "Marc Ecko's Getting Up"
Countless hours of immature giggling were had from that game's title.

You know that game at carnivals where you have to slowly move the metal thing through the other metal thing without touching the sides of the other metal thing? That's what I recall that game was like, but I've only heard about it; I never actually played it.

While I understand this reasoning, the first Megaman cover that Cap posted is seriously one of the ugliest pieces of craps I've ever seen that a company actually used.

I hope they didn't pay that artist too much, because damn, that's ugly. You think they could afford an 50 dollars or something to hire someone better.

As soon as I read the thread title, the Mega Man box art immediately sprang to mind. There is nothing worse than that, because you know the game itself is awesome.

Custer's Revenge has bad box art, but the game sucks too so it has less of an impact.

I agree, Custer's Revenge is sick and the box art is horrible!

Thing is, though, the art is well-done. You can tell an experienced professional did the illustration.

Unlike... whatever the Megaman thing is.

I argue that the first two Megaman games suck, and therefore the shoddy Box Art doesn't phase me. Custer's Revenge has such an epic premise that it's shoddy art comes as a shot to the face, a grave injustice against mankind. Even if the game itself sucked, the box art should at least have been good enough to frame, so that when company comes over you can point at it like a Van Gogh print.

Plus, you don't see Megaman's wrinkly rear on the box art, so you can't even really compare the two.
