Publishers double-dip on their biggest hits all the time, but it's rare for Game of the Year editions to get cover art befitting the games' quality.
Earlier this week, Warner Bros. announced Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition and displayed its terrifically terrible box art. We've seen some hideous packaging, but this one really goes for the gusto with its wanton disregard of anything resembling restraint. Just looking at the box, you'd be forgiven for thinking the game is actually called "10 out of 10," as that is what's most front and center on the box. However, that's Game Informer's review score.
The actual name of the game--Batman: Arkham City--is written in tiny lettering and pushed all the way to the right-hand side of the box. On top of that, you really have to examine the page to see that the game packs in the all-new story-based downloadable content called Harley Quinn's Revenge, which is one of the big reasons any of the millions who already played Arkham City might be interested in this double-dip.
This got us to thinking about the best and worst game of the year/complete edition examples. We've compiled a highlighted selection here of some box art that came to mind. Let us know if you prefer the original art or the rerelease art, and which ones we missed!
