3. Final Fantasy VI (SNES, 1994, Japanese release)

Final Fantasy VI

Final Fantasy VI’s cover art is some of Yoshitaka Amano’s best work for the mere fact that is spills emotion. By only evaluating the picture at the surface level, we are subjected to a combination of sorrow and solitude against a bleak backdrop all hand crafted in oppressive hues. In truth, and in looking into the deeper concepts at play, it would seem the colors really tell the story in this one. The heroine’s vibrant crimson permeates the entire picture with an unwavering sense of hope; a pure, solid, steadfast kind of faith that can ostensibly overcome any and all the surrounding dejection. How perfect given the game’s story, right?
