I’m a fan of good box art. Not a connoisseur, but definitely an enthusiast. Unfortunately, quality box art is hard to come by these days, as the startling majority of what we see plastered on retail shelves is usually just a slight variation of a similarly themed game. It’s an annoying trend that continues to affect most post-Modern Warfare shooters, from the abysmal Medal of Honor reboot to the extraordinary BioShock Infinite. No game is safe.
Since 1996, there have been more than two dozen standalone Resident Evil games — not including the many remasters, obscure spin-offs and digital-only titles.
You would expect a series like this to have box art that’s all over the place, and it does not disappoint. When I was spending an inordinate amount of time compiling these covers, including some UK variants for our friends across the pond, I expected to see more stumbles than successes. Choosing a favorite isn’t easy, but since I’d like to know yours, I suppose I’ll settle on the GameCube remake (sorry, Resident Evil 2). What about you?
