Have you ever bought a game SOLELY based off the Box Art and loved it?

Meaning you have no idea what the mechanics and story were like...

I bought No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise for $15 buck and enjoyed it quite a lot. Again, I had no idea what kind of game it was till after I beaten it lol.

Now if the sequel would come to PS3 so I can dual-wield beam katanas in that game...

Demon's Souls. The artwork on the Deluxe Edition caught my eye and by then, I needed that game. A wise choice in retrospect.

Yup. Bought Deus Ex Human Revolution Augmented Edition for like $40 and loved it.

Deadly Premonition. All I really knew was that it was a horror game (by the looks of it anyways). Ended up loving it.

I used to do it all the time when I was a kid. Back then if there weren't demos in the game store I had nothing else to go on.

Many games on PS1 and PS2. As a kid & teen I would get whatever game I thought looked cool based on the box art. Did that alot with RPGs.

i did that a lot when i was younger with ps1 and ps2, i also bought games blindly based on the IP, i actually was the proud owner of a babe the pig game on the GBC, a couple of bad spawn games, the crow game for ps1 along with the men in black one, i also bought a MIB one for the GBC, stupid GB games like a puzzle one with the ghostbusters, etc etc.

Funny i didnt realise some were bad games at the time.
This gen i blindly bought deadly premonition after i saw the tortured face, i tought it could be a fun/bad game, then i saw the squreel that screamed and i laughed and tought, im not going to finish this trash. Behold i finished it and it was one of mu favourite experiences this gen
