The Coolest Video Game Box Art of All Time

First, start with a giant robot. When a lot of people think of MechWarrior, they think of the Timber Wolf, also known as the "Mad Cat." It looks awesome:


Then, you make it even cooler. But how can you improve on a design like that?

I guess it would look cooler if it were, you know, on fire or had a giant explosion behind it or something. Wait, that's not a bad idea:


And there you have it. You don't know how often I stood in the video game aisle at Sam's Club and stared at this game, wishing I were cool enough to play MechWarrior 2.

Incidentally, the second coolest video game box of all time is a game we did end up getting, but that's a story for another day!

Cover looks cool, but I haven't listened to any of the songs.

One of the songs on that album sounds like Donald Duck freaking out. Needless to say, it could have been better...

You're making me want to listen to it now...

I once heard a black metal album with vocals that sounded like someone was beating a giant frog with a baseball bat. It was an interesting experience.
