15 stunning pieces of video game cover artwork

Graphic designers often face the challenge of having to create artwork that fits a certain mood. Designing art for an album cover or for a film is a great example - more often than not, the artwork needs to encompass an overall feeling of the end product. It's also true of video games, and it's something that I've been looking at more closely over the last few months.

Historically, I think it's fair to say, video game box art hasn't had as much attention in terms of design compared to things like film or music, but in the last few years I think that's changed. The artwork that a video game arrives in potentially has the ability to change how that game is perceived, and every so often you come across a design that's just perfect for the game.
