What's good, TAY?!

The Last Five Games returns to the Open Forum! This time: Boxart.

Take a look at this:


Pretty nice, yeah? Simple. Clean. Stylish. Most FF logos are quite wonderful, so using them as cover art is greatness.

Now take a look at this: Kinda cool with all the sharp angles and stuff but also very busy. Not a terrible cover at all though. And definitely represents the kind of game it is.

The suggested topic(s) for today:

  • Of the last five games you played, which game had your favourite cover and why? Did it do well to convey just what sort of game it was going to be?
  • Of the last five games you played, which game had your least favourite cover and why?


  • Which game had your favourite cover art of all time?

Despite this, Danganronpa was by far the better game, I believe. Can't always judge a book by its cover, yeah?


As always, feel free to Talk Amongst Yourselves if ain't nobody got time for a cover up! It is the Open Forum, after all. Don't forget that the IRC Channel is always around for you to carry out discussions as well. If you wanted to give an admin, author, and/or friend a shout: You can find them on the DirecTAYry.
