Something Awful presents movie posters as video games (book covers too!)

Was reading this up via Kotaku – the community over at the Something Awful forums have been putting together movie posters, but changing the titles to those of video games. Makes for some amusing cross-overs (click for larger versions):

Movies with video game names - F-Zero Movies with video game names - House of the Dead Overkill Movies with video game names - Cannon Fodder Movies with video game names - Bomberman Movies with video game names - Space Invaders
Movies with video game names - Dynasty Warriors Movies with video game names - Snatcher Movies with video game names - Road Rash

This isn’t the first time they’ve come up with some classy takes on video games – inspired by Olly Moss’ Video Game Classics project (which were featured in Edge and Kotaku amongst other sites/magazines), the folks over at Something Awful took a spin at creating video game covers in the stylistic vein of the old book covers Penguin and co. produced yesteryear:

Video game covers as classic books - Hitman: Blood Money Video game covers as classic books - Bubble Bobble Video game covers as classic books - Killer 7
