 The 12 Best Video Game Box Arts of 2012
topic by MischiefTooReal - 12-12-2012, 12:22 PM


"As games move in an increasingly digital direction, a trail of dead, once tangible media lay in their path. Gaming manuals are all but gone, pull-out posters are nowhere to be found, and box covers are being relegated to tiny thumbnails in the corners of your gaming download service of preference.

So while this might be one of the last years of video games having actual box art (or for that matter, actual boxes) it wasn't exactly a slouch of a year from an artistic perspective. To truly get a picture of how successful a video game box cover is at properly conveying what a game promises to deliver, try and imagine the following covers stripped of all logos and labels and see them for just their individual art. Here are the twelve best video game box arts of 2012."

NSMBU case is really colorful. #### stands out next to all my games just like the red NSMBWii one did. Out of all those I like the Xenoblade one the most.

I think so. Its classy and clean and captures the Hitman game perfectly. The special edition box is really bad a$s. Dishonored though?
