Video Game Cover Art

While browsing video game stores looking for something new to play, either physical or online, the first thing I see is the cover art of the game. The style and images can give me an idea of what kind of adventure I’ll find playing the game. Some covers are more appealing than others, and sometimes I would be interested in a game because of the art only to look at the description and find out it’s a Candy Crush clone with a new palette. Not all are that misleading though, and can give you a glimpse of the feeling you will get while playing the game.

Some are about adventure and exploration, so they have some landscape in the background. Others are about challenges and have a character reaching out towards something. And some are about scary haunted houses and will let you know with a spooky house in front of a setting sun indicating that dark and spooky times are to come.

    Just like movie posters or book covers the image on the image like that is the first impression of what you will experience. Although the old expression goes “don’t judge a book by it’s cover” most people do anyways.
