I've seen a lot of awful, hideous box art in my day. I worked at Gamestop for a while when I was a younger, have a pretty extensive collection of games myself, and up until now I've just been kind of dismissive toward crap box art, but I just came across what I'm pretty sure is the absolute worst art I've ever seen. From composition to color choice to empty space, everything about it screams "complete garbage."
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say "This is the worst box art ever made."
I feel like the old NES megaman boxes had their own charm and looked good in their ugliness. You can find something to like about most any cover. Color choice, strange expressions, font, anything. The cover for Xbox game Pulse Racer, however, has no redeeming features. If it was literally replaced with a picture of a pile of feces, it would probably be an improvement.
Can anyone beat this?
