Console gamers have seemingly always had it easy when shopping for games: The games for each console tend to come in very uniform, easily-identifiable boxes. PC gamers have seldom had such uniformity. Of course, here at AA, we consider the packages game come in a subject of no small significance. Nowadays, of course, most games come with little more than a small cardboard box and a CD-liner (most of us here can remember the shift from shelf-hogging large boxes to much smaller boxes just a few years ago). Well, now an organization called IEMA is trying to further standardize PC game boxes so that they can be identified as easily as games for consoles. You can read all about the new packaging in this PDF.

What do you think? Will PC games benefit from more uniform packaging?
