Total RecallTotal Recall is a look back at the history of video games through their characters, franchises, developers and trends.  

I'm not normally one to indulge in "TOP TEN THINGS OF THIS THING" lists, but when they involve badass box art from 1980s and 90s PC games, I can't help it.

Topless Robot put together their list of "10 Insanely Badass DOS Game Boxes", and it's good reading, mostly because they know the worth of Saboteur II: Avenging Angel's front cover (Panthers! Swords!), but also because they pay homage to Crime Wave, a PC game I'm really going to have to get around to featuring here soon.

For the record, top spot went to Sega's Crack Down, not to be confused with Microsoft's Crackdown, because one has a giant devil goat man on the cover, and the other was an Xbox 360 game that did not.
