Ugliness, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. But, lets be honest, no one wants to behold or even glance at images on our list of the 10 Worst Sega Genesis Covers. Just give it a cursory glance, giggle at how bad they are, point and laugh with your friends, and move on to gaze upon something more beautiful like our list of the 100 Hottest Cosplay Girls. Those with sensitive aesthetic pallets might want to skip this one since the images below may shock their highly tuned sense of beauty. Some might consider our list of the 10 Worst Sega Genesis Covers downright offensive to good taste!

    Oh lord, they used two exclamation points within an exclamation word bubble. Does that count as three? Also we're pretty sure this was cut and pasted from a dime store fantasy novel from 1982.

    Did someone with no photoshop skills bash together Tetris with Bejeweled, then added their uncle for good measure? Yes. Yes they did.

    What the hell is this game even about? It looks like someone who has had a mild accident trying to throw up the "Hang Loose" sign.

    Phantasy Star II

    This looks like a movie poster for a certain sci-fi movie that we all know and love. Is that a Death Star in the background?
