8 hated box art cliches

GamesRadar - It’s only a matter of time before a major art museum hosts an exhibit for videogame box art. Imagine… Your favorite titles blown up to impossible sizes. Ripped out of context to be ogled and discussed by art critics. People milling about stark white rooms breathing hushed commentary of how they “get it.” Curating such a show would be a nightmare – even with covers stretching into the millions and a history that dates back more than thirty years, moments of visual genius are few and far between.

Ok now I'm' a huge God of War fan...but that close up of Kratos eye on the GOW 3 cover was very, very lame.

I thnk they just ruled out all 8 styles of box-art, lol.

Agreed. I mean - c'mon, what else is there?

I agree partly with this article but imo "Giant logo" and "Don’t look at the camera" can be very stylish. I don't hate those. Like the one starcb26 linked above is gazing off into the distance but is still very nice.

i HATE face close ups. It looks terrible.

I hate the flat white background. Look at Final Fantasy 13's cover. THAT'S the best you could come up with?

SE does that because it always wants to give the FF games a classy look.

Rocket Sauce2758d ago

I should've pointed out that Just Cause 2, Spiderman Web of Shadows and Prototype did the exact same thing...just some guy standing in an empty white world. Not sure how that became so popular.
