Best Looking Disk / Cartridge Art?
« on: May 16, 2018, 04:56:03 pm »
Started archiving my collection this week, and am just now noticing a lot of amazing looking art on some disks that I own. Okami and WarioWare Smooth Moves for the Wii come to mind, especially that vibrant purple for Okami. Some games I plan on keeping if only because I find the disk (more so than the front cover/case) awesome, like Ecco the Dolphin for Dreamcast.

Was just wondering if any of you have a particular favorite cover for a cartridge or disk? Any games you keep around just for aesthetics?

Yes I do!  Here it is!



Operation: Secret Storm for the NES.  It was an unlicensed game, but it still had the best artwork!

All of the Working Designs games on Sega CD and PS1 have great art.

Here's one example: http://i.imgur.com/hFRjhdy.jpg

You beat me to it. Also they have disk art variants. I knew a guy who was going for all the different variants and last I knew he had all of them except one of the versions of Magic Knight Rayearth. You can bet that was an expensive sub collection.

Atari cartridges had gorgeous art over the years. Defender, Asteroids, Missile Command, Phoenix etc... Even something as simple as 3D Tic-Tac-Toe had great art. When the games had your hero represented as a single square on the screen, something had to spark the imagination.
