Ugly Video Game Cover #9: Legend of Camelot

958146_120787_frontThis artwork bothers me because I want to know what exactly these guys are looking at. Maybe King Arthur and Maybe Merlin are both looking over at something that is clearly more interesting than this game probably is. Man, even the damn birds are looking over there. What is it?

Ahhhhh, I get it, maybe THAT is the Legend of Camelot and we are supposed to use our imagination. Sort of like the briefcase in Pulp Fiction. It adds to the excitement, the intrigue, the mystery, the romance. All of the vital components that contribute to the awesomeness of a game like Legend of Camelot.

Or maybe they just figured that since it’s a game for kids they can effectively torture them for years with the mystery of the Legend of Camelot. It could be a conspiracy developed by the Illuminati with clues contained in crappy video game art around the world. I should dig up some old Turbo-Grafx 16 games and see if I can decipher the mystery found within the Legend of Camelot.

Stay tuned.
