Top 10 Worst Video Game Covers

Oh my god!! Do I really want to play the game just by looking at the cover!!

The Top Ten

1 Mega Man

Bad Cover BUT awesome GAME! Don't let the covet trick you CAUSE I LOVE THIS GAME!

This is actually the worst box art I've ever seen. Mega Man looks like a chimpanzee with a gun in a space dude costume. It looks really ridiculous.

The cover was nothing like that video game it was a really really big insult

2 The Lawnmower Man The Lawnmower Man

Who is the guy on the cover supposed to be? The Lawnmower Man? Also, I think BOTH the name & the cover are horrible! Is this game about a man who's a lawnmower?

Ahh that face gives me nightmares

Oh my god I wanna play this game so bad now

3 Super Bust-A-Move Super Bust-A-Move

Woah, that's a creepy cover and stop voting for games just because it's bad. Superman 64's box art looks attractive and eye catching when the game isn't

Holy crap, I remember this game. I used to stare at the cover all the time. It's definitely an attention grabber. - EnchantingWizardOfRhythm

4 Super Valis IV

She isn't what she looks like in the game. And she's fighting some blue guy on a tiger that breathes fire. The Japanese cover is right.

Death Battle: Miles "Tails" Prower vs. Super Vails

5 Resident Evil

Well, Chris Redfield looks like Rambo in misshapen version, tremendously horrible desing, even in a gamecube remake cover Jill looks nice.

6 Sonic Rush Sonic Rush

Haha just looks like a normal game cover to me

Who the hell came up with the idea to put Blaze in the damn cover!
She is a dumbass and all she says is 'let's do this'
screw that! - sagat2010

Everyone's bossy old hedgehog is once again featured in a crappy Sonic game.

The fact that this is number 6 makes this list irrelevant

7 Phantasy Star II Phantasy Star II
8 Grand Theft Auto V Grand Theft Auto V

Wow. Are you stupid? This game sin't even out yet. You can see it say: Not Official Box Art on it!

What the hell does every game being the same have to do with how bad the box art is?

It's repeating the same thing! It's like saying: "Hey, want to go take a ride in my convertible car? " V is five, we get that! What's next, Sonic 4 : Episode 3 I?

9 Superman 64 Superman 64

Everybody! Check out the super S on my chest! I can't get more creepy than this right?!

His expression is like he's saying, "how dare you put me in this awful game! "

Guys come on I know the game sucked. But the cover is pretty normal

The developers also forgot to put the title on the cover. Shows the careless effort of the developers.

I DO like Zelda but this cover's just dull - sagat2010
