Top 50 Most Wacky Bootleg Boxarts: PS1 Edition

Top 50 Wacky Boxarts

After about three months of waiting for the SyrianGames website come back, I’ve now returned with even more wacky bootleg boxart, this time from their PS1 catalog. Now, an odd thing occurred after that last article was published. After some gaming outlets posted articles about how crazy their boxarts were, SyrianGames went into a sort of Admin mode where only the site runners could access it. Afterwards, the syriangames.com URL redirected visitors to their Facebook page. This probably meant that 1) they wanted to hide their shame, and 2) they took the site offline.

So how do I have more boxarts to show? Well, for some odd reason several weeks back, their old site was back online. I found this out I checked out my old article (for kicks) and wondered if the site came back. I took the opportunity to look at their PS1 catalog and pick out the funniest ones from the bunch. Good thing I did it too since their URL is once again redirecting to their Facebook page.

Anyway, let’s end this little tangent. Hit the jump and check out the PS1 Edition of the Top 50 Wacky Bootleg Boxarts.

One more tangent, promise. There’s only 50 here since their PS1 catalog was much, much smaller than their PS2 catalog. Also, oddly enough, it was… tamer. Maybe the surprising insanity wore off on me, like hearing a comedian make jokes for over three hours and getting bored.

Agh, I’ve talked too much! Let’s get this party started! In no particular order…

Sadly this might be the last list I’ll do of SyrianGames. They’re site redirects to Facebook, so their catalog is not available. Either way, the rest of the games they have is just the regular boxart we know and love from our own shores. But this won’t be the last of the bootleg boxart showcase.

If you find some bootleg boxart you want to show, send it to steven@thewiredfishnetwork.com.

Until next time.
