    Fucking like this cover

  2. Eric Schell says:

    Such a great game for such a bad cover. Capcom at the time definitely
    needed someone like the artist that Konami had.

    fuck off asshole, some people can only afford dollar store materials”

    I will always and forever see the Mega Man box art as an example of how
    shitty I could be, how shitty life can be. So when things get tough, I
    think to myself; “It can always be worse” * Looks at Mega Man covers*

    What’s with the pinball bumpers, and why does Crash Man look like the Scout
    from Team Fortress 2? Such bad art.

  11. Sean W. Stewart says:

    Probably the most infamous examples of bad cover art. XD
    Mega Man 9’s art is still awesome though

  12. etherraichu says:

    My favorite part about the Mega Man 2 cover is that it clearly depicts
    stages from Mega Man 1.

    I really, really doubt anyone but James can say “radioactive asses” and
    sound so utterly serious….

  14. Chaospp says:

    the European mega man one cover looks really good imo

  15. 01 Asztronauta says:

    I always thought the original Mega Man cover looked like it was made by a
    pre-pubescent Rob Liefeld.

    If you enjoy shitty art getting torn appart with hilarious commentary,
    +FridgeArt has some really entertaining videos, although it’s not game

  17. SERO | セロ | Horror Games und Mehr says:

    Oh no. Really bad covers, for a really good game series.

  18. Christopher Rowe says:

    the background is kinda cool..

  19. thmalex says:

    The box art of Japanese version is much better

    What’s next James?
    Battlefield 4?
