@Cereal_Killa: It was a part of the lore. Minotaurs had their own societies and everything in Shadowbane, and were a playable race. So weapons make sense. 
 
And yeah, you could totally make a blue-furred minotaur. Green as well.

Catherine has some nice box art going on.

I don't think it's the best cover art ever,but i remember it so that counts for something, coincidentally i liked the game too and think it's an underrated piece of survival horror.
#255 Posted by Ace829 (2083 posts) -


 This should have been the cover for the game. A comic book cover makes too much sense.

I agree with the Mass Effect 2 CE art. 
I also think the Box art for Black Ops is kinda cool...

I think the fact that they don't name drop the game is hilarious.

So I just saw a thread for most 'unappealing boxt art ever" (lol Rayfield :)) and thought: Why not start a thread for most APPEALING box art ever? 
So here is that thread, and by the way, the typo is intentional :P

For me, one of the best box art has to be the box art for Soldier of Fortune 2.

Dude. Relax.

 
Now it is your turn Giantbomb. Which game box art is most appealing to you?

Why? I don't see it. "
Me neither

It's cause for me, the Soldier of Fortune franchise was the biggest thing when I was growing up. In my circle of gaming friends back then, we all used to play and talk about this game. The online was pretty fun for back then standards too.

the thing that annoys me about that art is that the guy in the photo is floating in the sea. if the game's title were nautical mishaps or something then yeah that would sense but the title is heavy rain. shouldn't he be stood in, you know, heavy rain?
#276 Posted by Lab392 (251 posts) -
@Toms115: 
Not if the rain is, like, super heavy. (flood, bro)

@Toms115: That looks like a deep water pond made out of pretty heavy rain to me...  And even if you think of it as a nautical setting, there is still heavy rain there.

 above poster wins though

@DougQuaid: 
 
I was shocked no one had posted KOTOR's box art until now.  It really captured the classic space opera feel of the original trilogy's poster art. Nice job!

#285 Edited by spiralsin (156 posts) -

 Because I'm a huge Batman fan...






I don't think anyone posted the Deluxe Edition cover art yet.


 The Collector's Edition painted art was more appealing than the Regular version, IMO.






 Doesn't get much more awesome than this.




 For my old school pick, my all-time favorite RPG and its expansion...

I actually really like the Metro: Last Light box art. I kinda wish the giant M wasn't there but I even like that.

#290 Posted by TheSouthernDandy (3851 posts) -

Oh also recently I saw this on Twitter and I had to just dig though my RT's to find it. This art is freakin amazing.

#291 Posted by tonyp2121 (169 posts) -
I reallly like the book style the Elder Scrolls series has, this goes for all the games in the series but I think out of all of them Skyrim had my favorite cover.
This manages to look like some kind of Noire movie poster, accomplishing exactly what it needs to.
This one just makes me crazy excited for the game.

#294 Posted by BeachThunder (11802 posts) -

I haven't played it and never will, but I love the shit out of Resistance 3's cover art:

#295 Posted by MiniPato (2727 posts) -

Special Edition was worth it for the box art. It's just a shame that the box had to have a removable top with that line cutting across the image.

Yeah it has to be Resistance 3 and Sleeping Dogs for me. They are so... Unconventional and seem to be intentionally spiting any kind of marketing conventions.
