1. Mega Man

1987, NES

What else could be here? This is, without a doubt, the worst video game cover art we have ever seen. All it would have taken was a single cursory glance at what the game actually looks like to determine that there's no yellow on Mega Man's suit, he doesn't have a pistol, and he's not the weirdest looking guy ever with one leg a great deal larger than the other. And what the fuck are those yellow things on the ground? Goodness gracious.
