One would hope that after SomethingAwful, 4chan, GiantBomb and now GAF (among others, no doubt) have done this that it would be the end of bad boxart for re-releases.

Tetris one is brilliant.

I really don't like this one, but spent too much time on it not to post it. It's amazing how the better ideas are normally the quickest to get to 'work'.

EDIT: Okay, realised that it works way better without the fake-looking hook and just leaving the shadow. Anyone that saw the original, would you kindly erase all memories of it :P

This thread has made me realize how much of a wasted opportunity that 'Platinum' or 'Greatest Hits' box art is, especially the hideous yellow vomit adorning PS3 games with otherwise majestic artwork.

Publishers, if your game is a greatest hit, then it's already established itself in the market. Why not give the successful title a second lease of life with a new, simple but suitable cover sleeve to celebrate the achievement?

Oh wow, looking at some of those, that's what I always thought Collector's Edition boxarts should look like.

It would be cool if a HD link became kinda standard, for those who would like to switch them with the actual covers. It would clean the thread from the "HD LINK PLZ" posts.

Thanks, it's called Dali. I had thought about the color thing but didn't bother since no one is going to print this out and use it for anything. :)

For my next one, I loved the original (Japanese and PAL) boxart -- the way it used the painting by Ueda himself -- but I wanted to try something entirely different with a minimalist style. It's kind of a wish fulfillment thing: I wish Greatest Hits versions did something similar, rather than adding garish colors to the original design.

I like the concept very much, but maybe you'd want to add the title somewhere.
It requires people to know it's Mirror's Edge, but this isn't a given.

The point of the Criterion Collection is that they are for people who are already massive fans of the (in this case) game. so, I think the ones that are most true to the spirit of that packaging are the ones that are a wink/nod to something that only a fan would recognize. They're intended to make the owner feel like they're part of the "in crowd" for that game. You could argue that they work better without including the game's name.

I love all the covers with a byline. They add a certain amount of class to the games.

It'd be cool to have something like The Gaf Collection - Yu Suzuki.

I really like this one. It captures what the game's about while still remaining quite minimalist. I was thinking about doing a Mirror's Edge cover since the game is just so darn stylish, but I couldn't think of one that would do the game justice. Good job.

While you might be correct to a certain degree, it isn't entirely accurate: a quick check of my Criterion DVDs and of their website reveals that seemingly every one of them has a title.

I'm not saying they shouldn't. I'm just saying that you shouldn't worry about someone knowing what it is without the title. If the design is iconic enough, you can definitely get away without it.

Yes, these are all artistic covers that would fail to appeal the mass market. They're indeed destined to a crowd that knows exactly what to expect... but at the same time I feel there's still a need not to be too cryptic.
An example could be something iconic like Alistairw's Yoshi's Island boxart: it lacks a title, but it's instantly recognizable and it doesn't need one. I couldn't say the same about that Mirror's Edge entry, in my opinion adding one would be an improvement.
But yeah, just my opinion here ;)

I've bought a couple Criterion movies almost exclusively because of the covers when I hadn't even seen the movie before.

Yeah, I originally had the title in there but I just couldn't find a good spot for it. It was weird for me. Couldn't find a spot where I liked the title but didn't really like it without the title. I was originally looking for the footprint but a quick search resulted in nothing. :lol
