    Cool Favorite Box art for a game.

    We always have an occasional discussion about ugly or infamously bad box art for games, but which games did you feel have the best box art?


    I've always been partial to these.

    It may not be my absolute favorite cover, but I do so love it.

    Oh, man. That's a good question. This is the only one that comes to mind off the top of my head:



    I'm so jealous of cover arts those of you in the PAL region gets. They're always so much better than ours, and simpler too.

    I always really liked the Ico cover. So simplistic and just very pretty.

    Agreed on the ICO & Kingdom Hearts cover. The KH one brings back nostalgia by even looking at the cover.

    The final fantasy box-art is simplistic but unmatched IMO. Some examples:

    And 6 as mentioned.

    I personally disagree, I think the minimalistic PAL covers look better.

    But hey ho. :3

    The grass is always greener on the other side. I love the NTSC covers and I am stuck with PALs.

    The FF PAL covers are better, but if you don't want them ToriJ will gladly take them off your hands.

    Always been ridiculously fond of the 80's cartoon style of Shining in the Darkness's cover art. Actually reminds me a lot of The Black Cauldron as well
