Which Jason Is The Poster Jason/Should Be On The Cover?

Recommended Posts

Basically which Jason is the Jason you believe to be the poster boy/the one this game is marketed around the most?

 

I think most would say Part 3 Jason. He was the first revealed if I recall. He's in a lot of the marketing. He's the background of the beta main menu. Though maybe this is randomized on final release.

 

Which Jason is the poster boy Jason? Which Jason do you think should be the Jason they market this game around? Which Jason should be on the cover of the physical copy? Or should the physical copy just have the classic Friday the 13th logo?

 

Your opinion of course. Some might feel it should be one of the 3 playable Jasons in Beta. Maybe the physical copies could have variants of each of the playable Jasons on Beta. Some might even argue that you could have ALL the playable Jasons as different collectibles for physical copies.

 

But really...it all comes back to which Jason is THE Jason this game is marketed around?

 

You might feel its all of them. Since this falls under the entire Friday the 13th umbrella.

I think a cool box art cover would be Crystal Lake with a silhouette of Jason near the top of the box, (possibly Part 3 Jason) and all the Counselors near the bottom of the box all looking around worried.

 

 

Kinda like this but with all the counselors at the bottom

Part VI Jason. Always the iconic Jason in tertiary movie-goers minds, which will sell to the mainstream. Mask needs to be movie resonant first though!

I always thought VII was the iconic zombie one.

I already made a thread about the game cover if this is focused on that

 

Didn't see it. Sorry about that. I should've realized we already have a million threads of the same thing that get locked all the time. I should've searched for it.

 

But in fairness, im talking larger scope.

 

Which Jason is the Jason they will market this game around the most is more or less what im going for. That and what Jason SHOULD they market this game around the most.

Would say Part VI Jason is the most memorable amongst the mainstream personally. Was the crossover movie from early 80's slasher to more mainstream type movie. Was 6 foot something, had the complete hockey mask etc. Don't think people envisage Jason as a decaying, skeletal (Must. Fight. Darrin. Howard. Skeletor. Joke. Urges!) type figure with an oddly shaped mask.

Hm. well if that's the case, people in the mainstream missed out. The New Blood has a lot of stuff working against it (Fuck you, MPAA!) but the look is probably the best in the series. At least in my humble opinion.

I agree, part 7 with all his decaying glory!

It's all good! I actually don't like that rule at all sorry ben and Jpops I can see why it's a rule to keep it from people posting hundreds of the same topics but there should be exceptions like if a topic hasn't been brought up in weeks or months then let the topic be revived!

 

Anyways I think they should use the basic part 3 simple mask because even people who don't know the films will recognize it as "heyyy it's the killer in Friday the 13th" lol

You know guys,i think it would be better if the cover art was a bit more faithful to the franchise,like have a silhouette with a weapon like the original first 3 movies cover arts,that would be a nice homage.

Those would be sweet as heck,or we could go with something similar to what GameboySM suggested or maybe with something similar to these...

those would also be awesome,it need to be something really visual and right into your face.

Nice thoughts but I'm sure guns ideas are altered or going with more of a original idea!

It's crazy to think that this topic does not apply to everyone who ordered digitally ... sorry but physical copies to me means more to me than a cheaper digital (like cover art work)

Part 3.

 

He is the most generic and easily identified, I think. He looks like every other incarnation, including the remake, because he is the basis from which all masked Jasons are built.

Now i know this might sound crazy, but stay with me on this. 

 

How about a 'Three Jason Moon' cover.

 

Huh? Perfect solution to this problem.

Yeah. It's the 'cleanest' version of hockey mask Jason.

 

I mean, I think visually the Part VII look is the best he's had, but in terms of a general Jason in the public mindset, and given how well he's actually suited their Kickstarter image and so on, I'd think it'd be Part 3.

 

That's if they put Jason on the box anyway, there are other options if they wanna get all arty.

Yes. That's reason enough, right? 

 

Though to be fair Jason X does look cool. I'm still hoping for a Jason X vs Wolverine comic. So it's nothing personal. Also shiny nickels.

No lol. Although Jason x is very high on people's worst f13 list I've always loved the upgrade look known as uber Jason
