I love Virtua Fighter Remix's cover in Japan.
I wish Sega did more illustration work with their VF characters like this. 3D models are cool, but I also liked the variety of illustrated art for VF we got around this era.

You’d only consider this in the best of category if you are truly patrician with respect to the medium of not only US painted covers of foreign games, but also the spirit of the 80’s/early 90’s.
This perfectly encapsulates an era.

Anyone here make their own retro boxes? That 3d Big Box scans site really got me interested, but a lot of the boxes on there are in German. Nint And Box has some great scans also, obviously for nintendo stuff only.

Patrician choice. Atari boxart is unbelievably good.

Look at this. BASIC Programming cartridge had this as box art. They found a way to make what is most likely the most painful way to code basic into something that looks like you’ll be programming on a starship to a polymoog soundtrack.

I just noticed this but JP cover and number of MGS3 is using brown color as ink. EU cover is the same art but zoomed in on Snake and using green color. Later HD collection and Japanese "20th Anniversary" reprint are original JP cover but green coloring. US cover art is very different but number is also green. First JP is the only region with brown colored number. Did they intend brown as the defining color of MGS3?

US art of MGS2 is using red but Japanese art is using blue. Maybe they were experimenting with other colors for 3's cover art. It might be interpreted as autumn leaf color maybe, or has to do with flower color change after boss fight.
