Strange question, guess I'd go with Oblivion.

Love the game, but the box art just puts me off for some reason.

Any time the topic of "worst box art" comes up, I immediately think of Phalanx on the SNES.

And its absolutely true!!!

The developers did it on purpose because they wanted their game to stand out in the "sea" of space shooter games on the market.

When I used to go to Blockbuster as a kid and rent games I kind of forced myself to judge a game by its cover. It was shameful. its one of the reasons I never got Super Metroid in the SNES era.

More like one of my more hated games:

Left 4 Dead 2

Seriously, go with the same cover just with two fingers instead?

Oh my god the nostalgia...

My grandmother had this game, I don't think I ever played it, but I remember that darn cover.

Thanks for that link, hah.
