13 Iconic Video Games That Were Sold With Hilariously Terrible Box Art

13. BioShock Infinite

2K Games

BioShock Infinite, the game from industry auteur Ken Levine that, like the original, has fronted the strongest argument to date that film and music should move aside and make room for another form of entertainment to be considered art.

As Rapture was before it, Infinite's floating city of Columbia suffocates the player with its personality and attention to detail, and yet, despite promoting that strong selling point on Infinite's skin, Irrational decided instead to slap a posing, brooding Booker DeWitt on the front, shotgun shouldered and ready for action.

Sometime after the stink subsided, Levine revealed in an interview that Infinite's cover was born out of a desire to reach as wide an audience as possible.

In other words, you have the uninformed casual market to thank for Booker's boring face hogging the limelight.
