Made up game box art is better than Easter photo



I have to be quick about this. The Easter Bunny has me pinned down behind a crate of chocolate eggs. Who knew he'd be so well armed? Thankfully while he's lobbing grenades around me I have these fantastic game covers to look at. The friendly people of at the NeoGAF forums have started "The GAF Collection," a bunch of photoshopped box art in the vein of the Criterion Collection.

If these were real it would sell games faster than the Easter Bunny runs from my chainsaw attacks of death. I can't tell you how many times I've stared at the box of an insanely expensive Criterion Collection DVD, basically thinking it was worth it just for the box art. I'd pick up plenty of games again if they looked this good. Must buys would definitely include Killer 7, Zelda, Katamari, Shadow of the Colossus, Pikimin, Dr. Mario, Ico, Another World and Rez. Those are just from the first three pages! It's pretty awesome in general. Crap, you have to see this BioShock one as well.

OK, time to make my move. It's just you and me now, Easter Bunny.

Even more characters in that classic Bubble Bobble style

Well, my Monday is off to a good start. Yours will be too, if you liked Paul Robertson's Taito-style pixel art series. It continues with another hundred characters, viewable below. Without a doubt, my favorite this time around is the Cacodemon from Doom. It looks so friendly! Who's yours? 100 Taito style sprites part 3 [Paul Robertson]more

Here on Farts 'N' Crafts, we tackle a lot of hard-hitting issues. And by hard-hitting issues, I specifically mean "bodily fluids," which is almost ironic considering the show's title. We've done dog feces, we've gone hedgeho...more

All characters should be redone in the style of Bubble Bobble for maximum cuteness

Hamza and I are huge fans of Paul Robertson's pixel art and animation, though the same could be said of everyone here at Destructoid, I suspect. He's one of the best. Trips to Robertson's blog are always a treat, albeit for d...more
