Sorry, but that is the best cover ever. Period.

Yea sure as a joke picture to look at I agree, one of the more funny box arts but to have on the shelf and to look at it It's pretty ugly as hell. I'd rather have the more generic but pretty cool looking phalanx box art in europe simular to other great shoot em up box arts.

I've always been fond of the European Box Art in a lot of cases - In particular with the PS1, I Prefer their Cases with the embossed strip compared to the other standard CD jewel cases.

Also, I will defend the Final Fantasy box art, there is something special about seeing that plain white background with full focus on Amano's Artwork Logo, looking at the USA FF covers I find them too busy filled with characters and no room to breathe. I actually have found it a shame that later FF games haven't kept the traditional blank background and logo design - FFXV was meant to but it doesn't have the PS4 strip at the top making it not look authentic.

Personally I've found the Japanese FF games from the PS1 on with the white background to be very boring. I really like the NA games, especially VII and X.

It's probably a bias, but NTSC always has the best box art compared to any other region. It's not just the cover itself, but also the box art template and layout. There's going to be some stinkers, but overall I'd take our lot over anyone else's.
