Ugliest video game boxes ever :)

I kinda remember that IGN had their own list about the ten ugliest boxes ever. What do you think? Which game has the crappiest front picture ever?

The American EFMI PS2 box was awful, Guybrush and Elaine fighting a hoarde of monkeys, Guybrush with a rubber chicken. Utter crap.

But it's pretty rubbish compared to the brilliant cover art of the other games, MI2 especially.

Theres a fine line between "shit because its cool" and "shit because its shit".

Warioware GC's cover is shit because its cool:

You just confused me. And I like the Warioware game box, it's PINK!! Pink should be a nationally recognized colour.
