I guess that first Cyberpunk 2077 cover art was bad

Seems CDPR heard the complaints about that awful cover art. This fixed version is much less of an eyesore. This one is set at night and looks way more cyberpunk. When I saw that first one, I just thought, "I never asked for this."

This really reminds me of another game... Not sure which. Feels like a 360 game.

Dunno if you're joking or not, but this here is a quality shit-post using the Deus Ex 2 cover as the punchline.

Do you have a single fact to back that up?

Wait is the new one the one posted in the thread? Because that looks very bad.

Edit: oh.

Since that wretched mutant of a game has been wiped out of existence and all records of it demolished, I only have my word as my proof.

They did some Best Buy exclusive steelbooks with art from Josan Gonzalez and I have no idea why they didn't just get him to do the main boxart. Sadly I don't think they're available in my country, at least not yet.

Ugh thank God they changed the box art. It barely invoked the world of Night City and it's terrible underbelly. I think the new cover art is way better!

@cloudymusic: “The Future War on Terror” as a tagline is just about the most perfect summation of post-9/11 video game marketing I’ve ever seen.

Invisible War wasnt THAT bad... but yeah that box art is shit. As is the Cyberpunk box art for the same reason 90% of box art is shit, it's just guy/girl with gun/sword posing. I imagine theres some market data somewhere that dictates thats the best way to sell a game, in the same vein a lot of influencers put a stupid face on their thumbnail to get clicks but it still sucks.

Box art is made for Joe Videogame as he browses his retail store on the weekend, not for any one on reddit, twitter or gaming sites. This is why if the game features shooting of any kind, the box art will 99% of the time feature a generic looking white dude holding a gun. It's specifically designed to move units.

This is why we've started seeing more interesting reversible box arts, so it serves both crowds.

This is exactly the kind of edge a distinguished badass like me craves.

Say what you will about Deus Ex: Invisible War, at least the Grizzled Video Game Dude has trigger discipline. Can't say the same for the dude in Cyberpunk 2077.

I can't say I minded the yellow box art (to be honest, I'm probably buying the game digitally anyways). The yellow certainly doesn't make you think 'whoa, cyberpunk, dystopian city!' but on the other hand, it does make it stand out. Lastly... I liked Invisible War.

Invisible War, when taken in context of being the sequel to one of the greatest RPGs ever, was pretty terrible. Also, it ran like total garbage. I say this as someone who, at the time, defended the shit out of the game on the 3DRealms forms because I really WANTED it to be good. That said, I can’t stop laughing at this thread.
