Forums - Gaming Discussion - What's the dumbest video game cover you've ever seen?

Although absolutely nothing can ever top the completely inexplicable cover of Phalanx for absurdity (which was posted back on page 1), I will now submit a couple of my personal runners-up:

With regard to this first one, personally, when I look at this cover, neither the words "pinball" nor "pure" come to mind.



And with regard to my pick below...frankly, what ISN'T wrong with this picture? Why a cat? Why a horn oozing...discomfortingly undefined white fluid? ETC.! Why? Why why why why why?

Great thread!

This one takes the crown for me.

Hey Little Buddy, why do we look disoriented as hell?

Like Christian propaganda in general, this boxart (and very likely the game itself) are utter shit:



 

This is all I see when looking at these.

I kid you not, this is the official cover of NHL 19. Looks like a 10 year old made this in Photoshop in 5 minutes. 



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Nope. Because it has balance, is well thought out, and doesn't have somebody making a stupid face. The ball, and the spotlight balance out. The EA logo doesn't clash due to the other logos on his shirt.

Orange on Yellowish-Orange? Great use of contrast! I love how EA throws it's logo right in the middle of their game. Imagine if all Nintendo games had the logo smack dab in the middle. The only way it works is with the Fifa Swich game, but that's because if mixes with the player's shirt.
