The 16 Most Wildly Misleading Video Game Covers Ever

I've been playing video games for a long time, because I grew up in the 1980s and '90s with more pets than friends. And one trend in the industry that has come a long way is the box art for video games. It used to be common practice for companies to just decorate their product with whatever picture they figured would sell the most copies, whether or not that picture had anything to do with the actual game. To be fair, I realize the graphical limitations of certain older systems made it necessary for video game publishers to engage in a reasonable amount of creative embellishment when designing their cover art. However, judging by the following examples, many of those publishers just thought we were all fucking stupid.
