Poll: Favourite Retro Gamer cover - (round 5) poll closed

Post by neuromancer » Sat Feb 28, 2009 4:36 pm

This is round five, the final round of my poll to celebrate my thousandth post (or so it was at the original time of writing)

[Edit: Rounds 1 - 5 and the Face-off are now closed. The Grand Final round can be found here:]
[http://www.retrogamer.net/forum/viewtop ... =1&t=13996]

As the poll will only support ten covers at a time I originally chose ten which I particularly liked, but following SirClive's suggestion I'm now running this in rounds; the winner and runner-up of each round will make it into a Grand Final poll.

Round one can be found here: http://www.retrogamer.net/forum/viewtop ... =1&t=13825

Round two can be found here: http://www.retrogamer.net/forum/viewtop ... =1&t=13830

Round three can be found here: http://www.retrogamer.net/forum/viewtop ... =1&t=13832

Round four can be found here: http://www.retrogamer.net/forum/viewtop ... =1&t=13834

Nights, Outrun, Donkey Kong

The Donkey Kong cover is simply too iconic for anybody to walk by and NOT stop to glance at.

Yeah, Donkey Kong gets my vote too. I really like the Nights cover too though.

As with the current Pac-Man cover, a screen grab of the Nights issue doesn't really do it justice - you can't see the physically raised 'snow', consisting of some type of semi-transparent gel with glitter.

I've added links to all five rounds to the first post on each poll, but it's unlikely that many people re-read the first post, so I'll add all five links here:

Round one can be found here: http://www.retrogamer.net/forum/viewtop ... =1&t=13825

Round two can be found here: http://www.retrogamer.net/forum/viewtop ... =1&t=13830

Round three can be found here: http://www.retrogamer.net/forum/viewtop ... =1&t=13832

Round four can be found here: http://www.retrogamer.net/forum/viewtop ... =1&t=13834

Round five (and final) can be found here: http://www.retrogamer.net/forum/viewtop ... =1&t=13835

I remember being particularly impressed with the NiGHTS cover when this issue arrived so I'll have to go with that one.

None of them are really THAT good.


Nights is the better of the bunch.

For the way the game screen has been integrated into the cover it has to be Kong

Outrun's making a characteristic break for the lead since last night - I thought Kong was a sure-fire winner (although I didn't vote for it myself)

I agree that there are no standouts in the bunch - but voted for Donkey Kong.
