Old Game Covers Are The Best

What a great cover picture. This is a Sierra text adventure that would later be given graphics to become the considerably more popular Leisure Suit Larry.

Why can't any covers be amazing illustrations like this?

The embracing tiger-people would make the list of most awesome illustrations ever, let alone just on the cover of video games.

You would buy this if you saw it in a store. Or I would, anyway.

The Japanese Ico cover is famously better than the American one, which I will save for my next feature: Old Game Covers Suck.
