The Many (Faceless) Faces Of Video Games

Last year, Briton Ashley Browning gave the world a great set of minimalist video game character faces. Now, Justin Russo gives us minimalist video game... chests.

Showing that game characters are as recognisable for their costume design and colour scheme as they are for their faces, Russo's works are apparently the result of a dream the artist had one night. What, Justin, a night spent dreaming of chests and no Prince of Persia? What gives?

    Yay, I recognise... one! Unless that top-right one is West-era Batman. Though I don't remember him having anything to do with pirate belt buckles.

      You couldn't recognize Mario?
      Pretty sure top left is a Big Daddy too.

    OK it goes like: Big Daddy, Guybrush?, ???, Snake, Mario, ???, Ezio.

    The red tie one is a bit too generic for my head

    The answers are in the tags.

    Try guessing again. And no, there's no games in there called "art" or "posters".

      Damn. I loved that Art game.

      hmmm, got 4 out of 6. Left 4 Dead!

    Bioshock, Uncharted, ?, Metal Gear Solid, Mario, Left 4 Dead, Assassin's Creed 2.

    I reckon.

    Bioshock, Uncharted, Dead Space, MGS4, Mario, Left 4 dead, Assassin's Creed 2.

    Made me pretty excited to see a Dead Space one, and guess it :)

    these are clever.
