Article 20 More of the Worst Videogame Covers of All-Time

By Andrew Bridgman / August 23, 2013

Cover art – it's the first thing potential customers see of a game. Before the internet, covers could make or break a game, given it was a lot harder to find info on any given game. So it's always a little baffling when a company puts out a game with an awful, poorly-made, ill-conceived cover. Yet they still did it, over and over and over again. Here are 20 more of the worst videogame covers of all-time.

(Note: see the first 20 here, and our coverage of the Mega Man franchise here)

Russell Grant's Astrology

What's Wrong With It: Let's get one thing out of the way: I have no idea who Russell Grant is, and I refuse to take the 3 seconds it would require to Google him. I don't really feel like I need to know, because any game about astrology starring the failed attempt to combine John Goodman and Chris Farley's genes through cloning is probably going to be a terrible game, and nothing about this cover seems like it would appeal to anyone (with the possible exception of people who have an incredibly specific fetish about John Goodman and Chris Farley laughing at you).

Article 20 of the Worst Videogame Covers of All-Time

They say "Never judge a book by its cover," but they never said we couldn't judge videogames that way. Terrible videogame covers have a lot of explanations: laziness, confusion, the desire to depict an airbrushed photo of Tommy Lasorda that came to the artist during a night terror, etc. But they all share one common factor: they are hilariously awful. Here are 20 of the worst offenders of all-time.

(Note: We are excluding the Mega Man games, since we already covered them extensively.)

Ultimate Duck Hunting

Worst Covers In Videogame History
What's Wrong With It: Welcome to the nightmare world of Ultimate Duck Hunting: Hunting & Retrieving Ducks, which seems like it should really change the title to give more focus to the enormous, god-like floating dog head that seems really disappointed in the badly de-saturated hunter's attempt to shoot a duck at his hip by aiming up into the sky.
