Before heading out of town last week, I entrusted a simple task to our crack team of Photoshop-savvy space outlaw readers — put The Guardians of the Galaxy in all of the games. Now they are. Excellent.

After a bit of a bummer of a homecoming, today was greatly brightened by going through all of your entries to pick out there very best. As fate would have it, I stumbled upon omeanizot's entry just as the concentration of Persona-loving Kotaku writers in our chat room was at its daily peak, and the winner was chosen.
