    If InFamous wins I'll be sad.

    The Dragon's Dogma cover is GLORIOUS

    This is the hardest one so far. Dragon's Dogma has a great design showing an action shot, whereas I like the electricity in inFamous 2 and the use of colour to represent the karmic system. Both are great, however Dragon's Dogma isn't the sort of thing that would appeal to me as much if I saw it on a shelf.

    I love both designs but in the end it came down to the purpose: they're designed to make you want to pick them up and on this basis, I went with inFamous 2.

    Pairings are made based on the number of nominations they got in the pre-tournament thread. Regardless, how do they not make sense? It's better to pair two distinct designs than two that look almost identical.

    It is indeed! Dragon's Dogma is more eye-catching but your point, Beasley2K, about the karmic system being on display on InFamous 2's cover got me to take that into account and reconsider. There's even a scene in the logo! So, yes, I am about to vote for InFamous 2!

    Dragon's Dogma... While the electricity on inFamous 2's cover is cool, the effects on the DD's cover are insane.

    Despite mentioning the karmic system in my reasoning, funnily enough, I actually prefer to cover of the original inFamous where the electricity is in plain colours.

    I agree. The original cover doesn't need red and blue lightning to leave a mystery as to whether Cole is good or bad, as the positioning of Cole's head, along with the black and white ruined street behind him, do that. I suppose, though, that the front cover of InFamous 2 immediately shouts 'player choice' in a way that InFamous' doesn't.

    I never thought of it that way, but I suppose inFamous does imply karma in the way you suggested, so you pretty much summed up the reasons for why I like the case which I didn't even know yet myself! You're right with inFamous 2 more directly implying karmic choices, but I preferred the subtlety of the original. This one feels more in your face, not to mention the original was more imaginative as this one is pretty much the same but with colours.
