Games have come a long way over the years, with a dedicated fan network screaming and shouting various games into their correct positions within the sales chart. The great games are praised and passed along by word of mouth, and the rubbish games are (largely) boycotted as those with taste condemn them in public forum. I remember a time in my youth though when this information network wasn’t as robust, and you often picked up a game just because it had cool box art. Even though some of these games are real classics, they comprise the fifty games you would have never thought of buying for this reason. Read on for the fifty worst game box covers ever.
