Hey let's keep OWF from dying (of boredom), shall we?
I'd like to discuss about the current state of the box arts in games. The lack of any creativity and detail in them. It's just heroes posing to the camera, sometimes they stand back to the camera, but in overall it's just shitty and unoriginal. I mean, what the hell? I thought they were supposed to sell the game, interest the player! How could anybody feel interested in their game if it look as bland as the one next to it?
I was thinking about my favorite box arts of all time, and it turns out most of them are really old. Old boxarts were cool, there were no clear formula to what they were supposed to look like so the designers really were outdoing themselves.
My top 5, order doesn't matter:
Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge
Heroes of Might & Magic 3
...I have never played an Ultima game in my life. But, man, these arts make me REALLY wanna play them. And I will.
