Game box art challenge?

I’ll take Sopwith as the forefather, because the simulation aspects of those games (speed and fuel management for instance) and the light strategy of the more advanced ones are what appeal to me.
Speaking of which, I played more Rogue Aces, and damn is this game good. It’s got quite a few surprises too.

I Have No Guess And I Must Type!

@Rock8man Well that one is instantly recognisable for me, it is Dark Souls is it not?

It is! Well done! I figured the fire embers would give it away.

(Japanese cover, better than the rest of the World’s).

Ditto, the Japanese box art for Dark Souls is very evocative. As is this next game’s box art…

Age of Decadence?

Not Age of Decadence, but a strong first guess.

No other guesses so far, about time for the next reveal:

Age of Empires.

Ding, ding! We have a winner.

Nice! Good box, I guess I never really paid attention to it. It’s kind of false advertising on the box, isn’t it? I wouldn’t say Age of Empires is about Empire-Building. Conquest, maybe.

Ghost in the Shell, PSX.

Absolutely not. Need to play that game.

Abe’s Odyssey?

Age of Empires was one of my favourite boxes back in the day, along with the sequel. The expansion packs were very B-quality art compared to the main game, though.

I’m going to break the rules and guess again. Fallout 2?

Sorry, that’s illegal, so I can’t tell you whether it is Fallout 2 or not.

It is not Abe’s Odyssey.

Metroid

Dungeon Master 2?

Neither of those!
