VGBS 41 – Video Game Box Art: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Episode 41 is here! We start this Box Art-centric episode talking about games that fooled us by the awesome box art. We then move on to good games hindered by their terrible/strange box art. Then games that have terrible box art and are indeed just that. We go into how we found out what games were like before the Internet and YouTube. How the Video Game crash actually affected gamers. Franchise Game Rental Chains vs Mom & Pop Rental Stores. And finally, what Retro Nintendo System has the best ratio of decent games over subpar ones. This is VGBS!
