If box art told the truth…

Xbigy Games Writes:

Pretty much every game out there has some kind of niggling problem that drives one person bonkers. Whether it’s the dress system in FFXII-2 or the backtracking of Resident Evil, even the best games have something to pick at. Today we spotted some creative images that have edited the box-art from several games, giving them a more ‘realistic’ advertising approach.

Before you go mental, this is all for a bit of fun. So please try not to let your fanboy rage explode in the comments box below.

All of the images come courtesy of NeoGaf users who have been tinkering with box-art using all their Photoshop/MS Paint skills. (Culture)

Metal Gear Solid Hide in a Box

I love hiding in the cardboard box!

:)
TopDudeMan  +   1027d ago | Well said
Yeah. No one was expecting to spend most of their time waiting for guards to walk past, while remaining perfectly still, while hiding in a cardboard box playing MGS, but they did and it was awesome.

FF7 one was also priceless.

i didnt get it, can someone explain?
SeraphimBlade  +   1028d ago | Helpful
Those are the characters that any reasonable writers would have made the focus. Instead we focus on Vaan who gets dragged into their plan and just figures he'll come along. And then doesn't do anything. Except going around telling people he's Basch von Rossenberg of Dalmasca. Even though they actually HAVE Basch von Rossenberg of Dalmasca in their party. So yeah. Useless.

Damn fine idea. emasculation quest and Peekaboo with guns are personal favourites, though the latter could be used for about 90% of games these games.

Really liked the Silent Hill III and Tokyo Jungle box art.......

For once an entertaining post.

The Last Story as Final Fantasy 15 made my day. In all honesty it doesn't even look out of place. Amazing article with some funny and creative covers.
azshorty2003  +   1028d ago
Some of those were pretty good. Especially the last few.

'Don't level Aries', Peek-A-Boo with Guns, Kidnap Everyone
BitbyDeath  +   1028d ago
I wonder how they find the fonts for all those games :-/
Christopher  +   1028d ago
There are a few sites that recreate box art fonts and more and make them available for download.

haha, Kidnap everyone, its funny because you can literally just abduct the enemy army and win. Hey, lets bring the enemy to our base and give them guns!
EmperorDalek  +   1028d ago
Like the ME3 one. So much truth to it.
elpresador  +   1028d ago
Seriously awesome. The DON'T LEVEL AERIES IS SO TRUE. Due to her healing ability I spent a ton of time upgrading her as I was only using her to continaully heal my party and then.....well, you know. I bawled like a lil girl, not cause it was sad, but because of all the time I wasted leveling her.

All in all, GREAT memories and despite what I know I will get by saying this, I loved FF7. I think VI had the best story line of all thr FF games but VII got me into rpgs and I enjoyed it more than the others, though VI is only a few milisexonds behind.

That was a lot of fake box arts
Kurt Russell  +   1028d ago
Yeah, I thought there may have been 10 or something, but it kept going!

I like the Bayonetta one.. somehow it felt like this game was a 360 exclusive the way some people were over hyping this game.
NeXXXuS  +   1028d ago
Corridors and Cutscenes. That was FFXIII alright.
BinaryMind  +   1028d ago
Gotta love the Ninja Gaiden 3 one: 3 out of 10 in the boldest font you could imagine!
TheOwnmaster  +   1028d ago

Looked at them all.

None of them were funny to me.
Wolfbiker  +   1027d ago
A Lost Odyssey one with '(the real) Final Fantasy XIII' would have been pretty funny.
