and saying nothing
You could say that about anything, that's kind of a crazy question.
why do you guys get so offended by box art? Most people (especially the ones GotY releases are targeting) don't give a shit about how it looks. Most of their box arts are probably paper sleeves from Gamestop.
But keep in mind that, with time more games (and movies, etc.) are competing for the same retail space. So putting it in small/pretty way might make "fans "happy, but not mean much for the unsuspecting customer. :p
If anything, the "solution" should be "that" in a slip-cover and a more cleaner cover inside the case.
Hell, even this one would have been better:
Shows more character, shows a struggle
"Batman throwing a punch" just doesnt say anything to me
And I've rather liked their whole white/red aesthetic with this game, but this cover just takes it waaaay too far. In a way it's so bad it's good, though, it's like it's self-aware "yeah, we are doing the gamez because we want the salez first and foremost, we don't give a fuck".
And I hate people trying to promote/understand/sell games in a fashion similar to how people have been doing with the movie industry for quite some time. "10 out of 10!!!!! BUY IT!!", ridiculous.
