Submission + - The Misleading World Of Atari 2600 Box Art: Part T (rundlc.com)

Buffalo55 writes: These days, you donâât have to worry about misleading box art, thanks to sophisticated video game graphics. In the 70s and 80s, though, companies tried to grab a consumerââs attention with fancy artwork that bore no resemblance to the actual game. Atari, in particular, was one of the biggest offenders, particularly with its 2600 console.

We already covered a handful of the systemââs box art, and now itââs time for the second round. We pulled some classic Atari efforts from Microsoftââs Game Room to show you what old school players had to deal with.
