The top 25 best (and worst) SNES box art of all time

Destructoid: Before the HD-era, box art served as both an introduction and an expansion to a game's world. Like a great movie poster or album cover, great box art has the power to encapsulate and influence your views of the product it's promoting.

Despite Nintendo trying their best to suffocate Super Nintendo covers with all sorts of ugly logos and formatting standards, some gems were still made. Along with 25 of the very best, I will show you 25 of the very worst.

Continue forth for some amazing (and some amazingly bad) SNES box art. (Chrono Trigger , Fatal Fury, Final Fight, Phalanx, Retro, Secret of Mana, Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts, Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Wolfenstein 3D)

The guy who created the Phalanx one was on some seriously strong drugs at the time, but the guy who approved it was on even stronger ones.
