The box is kinda funny, but well made. 4/5

Just in case anyone was wondering, I didn't use a template for the box. I made it myself. I also designed the Atari "ball" logo, the stripes and the 3D blocks on the back cover.

Mind explaining the joke?

Yeah I guess it is a bit of a reach for the joke. Honestly, it's more for my own amusement than anything else. I was thinking, "What if the classic video games hadn't been created until NOW?" Imagine if pong had just been invented a few years ago. How would the "classic" games be packaged and marketed if they were just being released for the first time. With that in mind, I tried to build a box for Breakout (on the fictional Atari360 platform) that would have a modern art style but still feature hopelessly retro screenshots. I thought some may get a chuckle from the idea. If not, it's ok.

So your saying the joke isn't really funny? Because it isn't much of a joke in the first place.

#5, I'm saying that the joke is mainly for myself. Most art is for the benefit of the artist and not really the audience anyway. I don't really care if you favorite me or not. I'm going to make what I like rather than pander to the masses.

#8, Sure You can. Would you like it in the red box color that I used, or would you prefer the original Xbox360 green?
