Agreed, tougher group. My first two pics were relatively easy, had to take a few minutes to decide on the third vote. Really had to ask myself if I were still a kid standing in the store, "which one would I buy?" Had to block out the actual game play and nostalgia tied to some of these games, ie. Double Dragon.
Lots of good covers here. I went with Golvellius, Line of Fire, and the charmingly anarchic illustration for Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine - it looks like it would fit right in among Ralph Bakshi and Jon Kricfalusi's work.
My honorable mentions - Double Dragon is a fine, well-balanced illustration. Global Defense - I like the orderly, linear composition. I like the warped perspective of Slap Shot, although aside from that it's not that great of an illustration. Putt & Putter is really cool, and Baku Baku is really appealing as well. I admire all the detail in Gain Ground, and the art direction that surely must have been something like "What's the color scheme? ALL COLORS!!"

Line of fire - plenty of action, nice detail Golvellius - Very nice artwork, even if it does kind of look like the hero of the game is going to attack the woman Deep Duck Trouble - Don't think I ever saw this game as a kid, but I probably would have wanted it based on the cover
