    Why is the game art so simple?

    I've always wondered why Nintendo has made more simple designs on their game dvds

    For example, WarioWare

    and here's HL 2 for the xbox

    Obviously, more colours have been used.

    I'm just wondering why Nintendo does this? It doesnt bother me very much, because I play a game for the gameplay and not the game art, but I never understood why all of the games have that look with less colours.

    The only reason I think they'd do it is to save a bit of money from designing and printing costs.

    What an odd question and thing to be annoyed by, you should probably go on Maury. Anyway, that's just some of them, and simplicity is cool sometimes. I'm guessing the Metroid, Resident Evil, and Mario Galaxy covers will be fairly complex.

    I don't care about the GFX on the cover.
    Nintendo don't need fancy GFX on their boxes to be cool

    I'm not annoyed.

    i agree, It is a odd question, but i've been curious ever since i had a gamecube.

    I LOVE the Zelda and Warioware art. I guess another possibility is that it's original art.

    thats just how they want to market their games. They most likely have an inhouse marketing department that makes the art. If its the same department, most likely the same group is going to keep using the same style. Like any artists, they tend to stick to their style.

    Now that's a real good answer. Thank you.

    I actually like the simple art of Wario Ware, reminds me of old Sega covers. I also like the more detailed covers too.

    Wii Sports, Red Steel (27%), Zelda : Twilight Princess (Forest Temple), Resident Evil 4 : Wii Edition (3-1), Trauma Center : Second Opinion (Ch2 1), Super Paper Mario (Ch 3-1), Mario Strikers Charged Football, MoH Heroes 2

    nintendo purely focuses on gameplay. but if its a major title like Brawl, Metroid3, or mario galaxy, they make those look really good. zelda is another good example. nintendo really only cares about graphics and such wehn they asre working on a big title (the majority of the time)
