Eh I'm not a fan of the outline font on this cover but it's better than the cover DownintheHole posted that looks like a slapped together 5 year olds photoshop mess. EA Should be ashamed of themselves for even passing that as the final cover image. If I saw that sh*t I'd want to put it down quicksmart and never pick it back up. What were they thinking letting the Intern design the cover art? 


I know the old saying, don't judge a book by it's cover but this is one case where I'd be judging said game by it's cover, it'll make me think this is some sort of joke or fake game taking the mickey at EA because EA being AAA developers / publishers would have standards right?  

 

I always thought those off brand no name PC simulator games took the cake when it comes to cover art but at least they have a reasonable design, DownintheHoles which is apparently a standard edition cover (from my research) I can't even give a 1/10 to. It's just ugly. If this doesn't scare off people I don't know what will. 

 

I was also going to comment FIFA should be ripping EA to shreds over this kind of design as it will definitely put people off and possibly do damage but we live in a world where money talks so I don't see FIFA giving two hoots about this, maybe they will and it'll get blown under the rug as that saying goes.

That stock image of the net on the bottom is hilarious. The only thing that's missing is a shutterstock logo on top of it.

That's REAL? I though this was one of you guys making a quick piss-take parody photoshop job.

 

 

 

That's not even funny, that's a f*cking disgrace

Except the GTA covers, I think most game covers generally suck big time, it's unbelievable. They're always extremely tasteless and generic. Always that same pattern with some guy standing in front of some generic flashy hyper detailed, but messy background.

Compare those to this piece of pop-art:

 Osta Grand Theft Auto San Andreas GTA SA PC Peli | Steam Download

It doesn't need to try anything, it just works. If GTA:SA was made by any other company, the cover art would consist of CJ with a generic tough guy pose standing in the middle, holding an AK-47. Background would have cheesy explosions and all kinds of stupid flares pointing everywhere and it would all be so keeeeewl

Seems like Rock Man had trouble getting good box art around the early 00s

 

Travis-Strikes-Again-PS4-JP_07-24-19_001

Quite a downgrade from the original.

The worst render of Sonic I've seen apart from that McDonald's toy commercial.

Phoenix games itself is a treasure trove of terrible cover arts as already pointed out by other members

1511501641que_pasa_neng_spa_sealed.jpg 

 

Just searching their name on Google caused this to show up, no idea if it is even remotely real but Phoenix Games being Phoenix games it wouldn't surprise me.

Found this on facebook.

 

Literally just in-game animations overlayed with artistic filters. It's like they don't even try anymore.

the EA Sports covers are hilarious, it's like they tried to go with a modern hip-hop cover style but somehow failed in the progress.
