When shopping for games, how much do you depend on the boxart? We're sure you also read reviews and check out a synopsis or two, but we have to admit that sometimes, a crappy box can turn us off a game if we weren't fully invested in the first place. Sure, maybe it seems a little superficial -- maybe it is a little superficial -- but the box is, after all, among our first physical interactions with many games. It does make an impression.

We've included the Brain Buster Puzzle Pack here as an example, as it's quite pixelated and rough up close, but as far as puzzles go, it's so worth it. Sometimes, it's rewarding to take a chance!
