You know, I realised that the term 'cover art' is pretty much dead, given that there's an enormous heap of digital only games now. Regardless, what are your favourite 2014 covers / whatever equivalent a game may have?

Not only is it a fantastic game, but I really dig the...cover...of The Talos Principle:

I was going to sit here and mentally go down a list of all the covers of games I'd played this year, but then I realized there's a very clear winner:

Don't really know if this counts as "cover art" or not, but The Banner Saga.

Meh, I think there is only a few choices. It can't be just a few games you liked that burp-fart a barbarian/soldier/knight on the cover. Cover art means art...something with some composition and meaning besides dumping the main character on the box in standard champion pose.

I really like Ultra Street Fighter 4's boxart.

And Broken Age's Steam not-boxart is also awesome.

Gotta say, I like the art from Wasteland 2 despite being a slightly different version of the original. The original is still fucking awesome though, so I vote for this.

The Evil Within's alternate launch copy boxart is pretty snazzy, too
