The Worst Video Game Box Art of 2011
You should never judge a game by its cover. Unless it's really, really bad.
A lot of games were released in 2011. Unfortunately, not all of them came with awesome box art. Frankly, some games came packaged in absolutely abysmal video game box covers. Here are IGN's picks for the 12 worst examples of box art for the year.
The only thing worse than the concept of a video game homage to a private military company rapped for the illegal deaths of innocents, is this nasty box cover. Tribal tats, backwards baseball hats and douchebag Oakley sunglasses are matched with blinged out SUVs favored by these harbingers of homicide.
This cover looks like somebody decided to make a game about what it's like to step on a pile of dog excrement where you played as the dog excrement from a first person perspective. First person sh*tting? Sold! Also, hugs and kisses!
It's 4:27 AM and you wake up to the maniacal cackling of a dying rooster in your backyard. Dawn propels you into a wretched day of dreary manual labor. Your field is covered in cow pies, vomited grass piles and horse manure and your only glimmer of hope is sadly puttering around the yard in the world's loudest, slowest automotive vehicle.
If Salvador Dali's ghost was forced to rise from the dead to run the graveyard janitor shift at a Lowe's Hardware store, he too would probably draw a lumberjack attempting to secretly sledgehammer a little girl.
There's nothing in the rulebook that says a dog can't play football, nor any law against a dog licking a distracted professional football player when they are of nearly equal height.
Really Jimmie? Anything? Why then, you and your drunk, illiterate circus friends should all sit on chainsaws.
Or "the last thing I imagined before I passed out and died of violent heat exhaustion in Australia."
And Fall of Resolved Sodomy Crime Percentage.
This is quite possibly the most boring looking action sequence since the mild fender bender your mother picked up while exiting a K-Mart parking plaza on President's Day.
When hell is full, the dead will walk the earth, probably in search of power pellets.
Dogs are cute and loveable. Sometimes they are scary and large. Wappy is creepy, ominous and terrifyingly out of scale. It's time to put 2011 down like a sick dog. Fingers crossed for better box art next year!
