Another year, another countdown, another birthday. And I’m boxing it all up, tying a nice little bow around it, and turning the ripe old age of 32 with a celebration of 32 BRILLIANT examples of FANTASTIC video game box art. Join me, won’t you?
Impossible Mission (1985) – If there’s one thing synonymous with the 1980’s that’s not shoulder pads it’s nuclear weapons. And when those nuclear weapons are made of neon, you may as well get yourself a perm and call yourself Jennifer Grey. The box art of Epyx classic Impossible Mission wears its 1980’s heritage on its sleeve, so much so that just looking at it now gives me warm and fuzzy feelings of my childhood. If artist Dan Flavin was less into minimalism and perspective, and more into action films, it would’ve manifested itself as Impossible Mission’s box art.
