Something I used to love as a kid was going to EB Games or Harvey Norman and browsing the shelves for all the boxes of brand new video games. And with good reason: it was an era when box art matted. It matters a lot less now, but it's still fun to look back in time.

It's for the Super Famicom-themed 3DS that Japan is getting. As if the handheld itself wasn't beautiful enough, now this? This should be on a gallery wall, not a retail shelf.
Most video game box art sucks. The new DOOM's cover, however, is especially bad. Thankfully, Bethesda seems to have taken note of this, and is offering fans a "vote" on a reversible second cover.
The best examples of box art tend to be those with a timeless design. Those you can look at ten, twenty, even thirty years later and say, yup, that still looks amazing. Super Mario Bros. is one such game.
