Not quite a meme...  
From kirinn: The gaming magazine Edge just came out with their 200th issue, and decided to do 200 different covers based on different video games. You can see them all here. How many do you recognize?

Hah, I think I was about due for stealing other people's productivity instead of the other way around.

Also, I totally beat you. ;) Which... means I spend too much time reading gaming sites. Er. Yay?
