By Its Cover: The Worst Box Art Of 2012

A Critical Hit: "Now that we've done the best, it's time for the worst. Most “worst box art” round-ups just post a bunch of funny-looking covers that lend themselves to a single sentence of snarky commentary. But not this one.* Our list aims to point out box art that’s bad from a design perspective, and attempts to explain why.

*On the other hand, if you were funny-looking images with snarky commentary is what you were looking for, there’s also a little of that at the end of the article."

I really like the Wii U box art style. It depends on the game cover's color scheme, but it works more often than not.

LOL @ the Peanut Gallery covers. Holy hell, those are funny!

But yikes, I never did realize how awful the Arkham City GOTY Edition cover was. It looks like an advertisement for the game's rating rather than the game (even though it was an awesome one). If they had stripped out or at least downsized the text, the cover would look awesome, as the artwork of Batman is really cool. Unfortunately, that text looks ridiculous. >_<
