Why It’s Stupid To Complain About Box Art

Alex Keen:

Recently, fanboys and gals have gone nuts over box art that doesn’t live up to their expectations. The two biggest recent culprits are Irrational Games’ Bioshock Infinite and that of Insomniac Games’ Fuse. I’m here to let those complainers in on something important: complaining about box art is a waste of your time. (BioShock: Infinite, Culture, Fuse, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

A) People are not going nuts... some people were less than thrilled, some (like 1 / 2) wrote an editorial about it and then a number of people continued the talk by writing a response to these comments.
B) Boxart is important, since it gives you an idea of what to expect. Bioshock Infinite appears to be a COMPLETELY different type of game when compared to Bioshock 1 / 2, so I don't like it. The best designs are both good and accurately portray the game.
C) Can we let this issue "die"? I like these articles more than the ____ console is dead posts, but it seems like everyone thinks they have a new take on this "issue". There is only so many times that we can rehash the same views...

The real problem is most of the people don't really understand NOTHING about art and creation and complain based on their own taste ... and most of the time their taste are incredible bad.

Ps It's the human nature! It's a revelation !

What a patronising article. Of course I know it's a waste of time, don't talk down to me like you're offering some incredible revelation.

Even more stupid to try drag it on weeks after the issue has died down.

Am not concerned with the box art for all I care they could have used clouds ,a flag, a gun . My main concerns is the game good & will it run fine on all systems. That a concern not some piece of paper art.
