Last week-ish I asked our readers to use the power of Photoshop to beat the inevitable flood of Pokémon Go-alike games to the punch. Together they’ve created an array of imaginary AR games ranging from compelling to mildly murderous.

Though I graciously gave everyone an extra day or two to get their entries in and wasn’t just late in posting the results at all, the overall winner was pretty much a shoe-in from day one. I’ve been giggling about Greg the Mad’s Mirror’s Edge Go entry all week. What the rooftops of our world really need are a serious of rails and walkways that aren’t really there.

I’m imagining one guy amidst a room of excited game execs, wondering if he should say something.

Suddenly it’s raining cellphones! Oh, and people. That’s bad.

Of course Greg the Mad is just the best of this week’s winners. I’ve picked 20 also-winners from the outstanding entries you all submitted, which we’ll get to shortly. I’ve also gone back to the contest post and approved all pending entries, so if you get to the end of this list and want more, then by all means.
