Craps all over the garbage that was the EU cover (much like the actual game)

Image

The difference in appeal between this Jap version and the EU cover isn't so big as the SoR3 boxart but this is still much better and looks awesome.

I know my picks are a bit newer than what has been posted so far but I do love the covers for the stuff on the 8/16bit computers and wish modern covers had a bit more of that hand-drawn brilliance to them. The cover for Where Time Stood Still is one of my favourites if anybody can post it at a sweet resolution...

These covers are the gaming equivalent of Ronseal :)

RG should bring back the old series where they did full-pages of old ads. The ads were usually the box art anyway.
