10 Cases Of Seriously Misguided Video Game Box Art

WC: The purpose of a video game box is to entice potential customers into picking up a copy of the game. Usually such things are achieved through simple means: throw a semi-nude female on the cover, or decorate it with explosions and guns (preferably you just do all those things at once) and a gamer will have no choice but to take your product into their hands.

But the years have shown us that video game box art is an untapped resource for generating both serious confusion and uncontrollable laughter. Just check out the 10 weird and misguided video game box covers we’ve assembled for inclusion on this list – all of which are bound to either freak you out or have you scratching your head for hours. What do they mean? Don’t ask us: we have no idea. (Culture)
