These Iraqi knock-off game covers are incredible

Spit-take

Iraq, what are you even doing? If you're trying to make me laugh, you've done well. 

Check out this roundup of Iraqi game bootleg cover art over at RocketNews24. These are strange. I mean, look at Shadow of the Colossus. There's a guy and a horse -- that's all right. But wrong guy and horse! Wrong attitude! Not that I wouldn't play a Shadow of the Colossus / Dynasty Warriors 8 cross-up, because I totally would. 

With a quick scroll, I was already snickering at the art for The Mark of Kri, and shaking my head in disbelief at their version of Bloody Roar's art. But then I scrolled back up to get a better look, and then actually spit out tea looking at the Matrix 2: Path of Neo art. Why the jungle? Why the Fallout tat? 

If this is an elaborate troll, well done.
