The whole thing was just so you could find a note telling you not to waste time on video games.

Honest Video Game Box Art is a Facebook community founded by a gamer named Qualbert, dedicated to redesigning video game covers to more accurately depict what the game is like and also what it does to the person who plays it. Honest Video Game Box Art has only been a Facebook community for a few weeks, but it's already exploding into a thriving scene that's made the blog rounds more than once. It's not hard to see why—anyone who grew up on video games has far more complex memories of these products than just their titles. For example, when people say "Goldeneye for Nintendo 64," what I actually hear is "Proximity Mine Bingo" (or "Big Heads And Karate Chops").

Here are some of the best examples of honest box art from Qualbert and from members of the Honest Video Game Box Art community.
