Worth it? Check these cool, pricey video game art prints

Do you love video games? Duh! Do you want to celebrate your hobby, without filling your home full of nerdy figurines and plushies that might repel potential friends / partners / victims? Then you need one of these classy art prints from Cook and Becker. Like a good butler, these prints politely suggest sophistication without getting too showy and garish. However, to continue the good butler metaphor, they're also quite expensive, and available in limited numbers.

Still, imagine having one of these limited edition prints hanging on your wall. There are all kinds of games available, from Journey to Street Fighter, Mirror's Edge to The Last of Us. And they're all really nice. You know how a lot of video game art is a bit guff, because it's all men-with-guns and weird tit-witches? Everything here is bold, understated, and actually belongs on a wall with other bits of art.

The only real problem is the price. Cook and Becker is a bit cheeky because it's only when you get to the check-out that you add stuff like VAT or tax. And then there's framing. So the price you actually pay is more than you initially think. Is it worth it? Umm... maybe. If you've got plenty of cash in your account, and a yen for something with a touch of class, then: yes. Also, hands off this Mirror's Edge print--it's mine!

    Huh. That's pretty great. That's exactly the kind of thing I'm into. The only thing I've got to question is the price, of course. I don't usually mind unfairly high prices, provided that's what a person values their work at. I just feel like these are unnecessarily jacked up prices, similar to how you would jack up the price of clothing for being name-brand. Its the same art that I enjoy and have plastered all over my desktop so why do I have to pay out the butt to get a physical copy? Its not like the seller did anything. If its because its limited edition, well then print more! Not like I give a shit. Anyway, neat stuff. Part of me hopes they sell out, because that would mean the spread of our culture in a more respectable way. Another part of me hopes that they don't sell a single work, because nobody should be about clearly unfair prices.

    Yea, I'm not one for pricey artwork either, as nice as it all looks. I'll happily frame a photocopied picture.

    --WAY WAY --WAY WAY WAY too expensive --plus --its not even all that 'nice' OR 'COOL' --the way its all done up is boring and uncaptivating --and --the website is underwhelming and DULL to navigate --sorry Andy --but --"cool stuff" FAIL!
