So naturally, shovelware tends to have subpar box art. Low quality game, low quality art. Makes sense.
But what GOOD game do you think had the worst box art? Personally, I would have to go with the Western box art for Ico. How that ended up replacing the original box art, I will never understand. I know some might suggest the original Mega Man, but I think there’s some kitschy charm to it.
(I think we can all tell which is which.)
Also Bioshock Infinite is a definite honorable mention for not using its amazing alternative box art that is found when you flip the art inside out.
