Top Nine Worst (US) Dreamcast Cover Art
By Gregory Oborne | June 4th, 2021
To celebrate It’s Still Thinking’s 9-year anniversary let’s have a gander at 9 of the worst US region Dreamcast cover art. Please understand this article is in jest and the critical analysis of design and illustration is by no means an attack on the original artists and designers. I would however like to aim blame on the art directors, and decision-makers of these titles because they DID have their meddling mitts all over these covers and I sympathize with the resulting frustrations.
Downward we go!

Most of the time our Dreamcast games are busy sandwiched between each other with only their spines showing so we don’t always get to appreciate their full frontal glory.
I had to ban any Japanese cover art from this list because the majority of it is just leagues better, but since each region has its own cover style to begin with I think it’s only fair we look at one region’s games. Instead of actually playing any of these games, let’s do what any respectable collector would do and just look at the best US region Dreamcast cover art!

Water looks quite different from game to game (as you’ll see on this list). The variety is actually quite astounding considering most games are almost always trying to render water realistically.
