Hello PC gamers in Giant Bomb forums.

My favorite type of wallpaper is mostly cars which consist of sports cars, race cars and concept cars.

It's been a long, long, long, long time since I even thought about desktop wallpaper. I almost always have Chrome open and full-screened, and it's practically the only application that gets any play at all on this 2008 iMac anymore. If I'm seeing my desktop, it usually means something's gone terribly wrong and I'm forcing a restart of the whole damn thing.

That said, it's been an old, formerly popular but somewhat un-searchable watercolor painting of Joel and Ellie crossing a ravine underneath a broken highway in Pittsburgh as a herd of deer look over from the right side of the screen. I chose this when The Last of Us first came out, meaning it's been the wallpaper of record for around eight years.

I never see my desktop anymore. It's just Chrome or Steam these days.

I do change my wallpaper occasionally but I actually forgot what it is right now. I'm on my phone so I can't just look at the moment.

I usually like landscape pictures, typically deserts, but for the last year and change it's been Control concept art.

I like doing galaxies. There is a large assortment of space structures from Hubble and such available, and will even come in packs.

I've got a bunch of pictures of cute animals and they cycle randomly to a new one every day. Just a nice thing to make me smile for a few seconds when I see it.

I'm not a "browser always open" person, but I still just use the default Windows thing. It just looks clean and simple. Any time I try to change it to something else, the screen just doesn't look right to me.

The Microsoft Bing desktop app gives me a new wallpaper daily. They run the gamut with pictures of science, nature and cityscapes and most are well chosen by whoever is doing the job at Microsoft.

Sometimes I'll be presented with a cityscape or a nature scene and I'll try to guess which city or what part of the world I'm looking at before I read the description. It's a nice little diversion from my busy work day.

I've been designing my own wallpapers since 2009 since other options are too basic and boring for me.

That said, I wouldn't describe my DeviantArt as being entirely safe for work, so, heads up in that regard.

This has been my wallpaper of choice for the longest time. I'm thinking of changing it, but I'm not sure to what.

I use Wallpaper Engine so imagine the image on the left but animated. The Chicks are bobbing around and moving, the water is overflowing, there is steam moving across the screen and chillbeats that play when ever I am looking at the desktop.

I use a solid lime green color. It's clean enough for me to read on top of it, but distinctive enough that I always know when my desktop's showing.

Default windows 10 wallpaper. My old PC has a shot I took from a Manic Street Preachers gig.

Usually just a solid black color. But for a few months its just been stuck on cycling through a folder which has a variation of background pictures.

I'm using this wallpaper I made in Photoshop with a background I picked up from Google images and official K/DA art.

I haven't played a single second of League and only know like, one K/DA song but I really liked how the character looked.

@gtxforza: It's pretty great and it has so many ways to customize the desktop. Since I'm the only user when I boot up to the login screen, music plays at sign in so it's a little extra customization. Plus if the music does not play at login it lets me know something went wrong at boot phase even before I signed in.

This was a 1080p image originally that I found, and decided to upscale to 1440p using an "image upscaler" website and a few sharpening effects in photoshop. Trying to post the image here, but the uploader makes it look much darker than the imgur link. https://i.imgur.com/JpC2STp.png

Same image uploaded here looks waay darker:
