Turns out the confused banjo player on the Phalanx boxart was also a mall Santa Clause. Gee, and you think you know a guy.

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. 

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. 

Another example of a great use of contrast:

This one really hurts because there was just SO MUCH potential......and this is what we got.



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.

So "Does whatever a spider can." doesn't include "Appear on good PS4 boxart."?



Is it weird that I think so many of these are really good. Like the Ico cover and Pac-Man.

Apologies in advance to everyone I thought this thread was over but...

Turns out that NHL cover wasn't just the work of some intern with a deadline. 

These EA covers were planned. Somebody over at EA thought these covers would be a good idea. LET THAT SINK IN!



 

Looks like I'll have to add another one to the list. This guy's mouth looks like clown makeup. He's screaming for no reason. His eyebrows say worried, but his face says excitement. It looks idiotic. And then there's the Konami logo.

This is barring Kojima from his award levels of bad.

This is not only an insult to my Neopagan background, but it looks like the game's just about some raving idiot in a cloak for no reason.

Yeah, it is quite poor. Surprising to see such an awful boxart from Insomniac, their Sunset Overdrive boxart was among the best this generation.
