Great thread idea. I'll post some later.

Spoiler:
Image

Awesome cover. Epic. The only sucky thing is the NA version has a million fucking logos that ruin it.

Image

Awesome. The NA version of this cover can suck it.

Image

While I'm pissed that NISA didn't use the full image, this is still pretty epic.

Image

Nothing could've ever spelled out "Wonderland" like this.

Image
Image

The is possibly the greatest video game cover ever. It's level of symbolism and contrast blows my fucking mind every time I see it.

Image

Not as iconic for me as R3's but when the PS3 launched, THIS image sure caught my attention.

Image

Image

While I was underwhelmed by the game... this cover did not disappoint.

Image
Image
Game isn't even out yet and love this cover.
Image
I love this cover EXCEPT for the horribly photoshopped in little sister... otherwise its perfect.
Image
My favorite game of all time also has one of my favorite covers.

I'll add more later, I'm tired.

Here, I'll post a cover of equal artistic merit. Image

Oh, okay then. Hold on, I have to dig up some shitty ones now.

Btw, the makers even admitted they put the Banjo Guy on the cover in a desperate attempt to garner publicity.

Personally, I've always been a fan of this box art:

Spoiler:

Maybe it's just how it looks like an 80s film poster, and has that Blade Runner-esque feel to it. I guess it just hits all the right notes for me. :P

For a more recent cover that I really like, there's always this:

The whole thing just looks great!
