Long ago I had a subscription to PCXL and either PC Games or PC Gamer. Eventually I had a huge stack of them, but I was too much of a neurotic packrat to get rid of them. The only way I could get rid of them was by using them for something. So I started looking through all of the old issues and clipping out cool pictures or slogans. Then I started putting them together in a giant 4' x 6' collage.

I have this memory (which might even be true) of working on this between rounds of playing Counter-Strike all day one Easter Sunday. I am amused to look at the picture now and see that it had the original ads for classics like Half-Life, StarCraft, Tomb Raider, Fallout 2, Worms, and Rainbow Six. It even has an ad for the Blizzard game that was never released: WarCraft Adventures.

It was destroyed with similar neurosis as it was created: After having it up on my wall for years I didn't know what I wanted to do with it. I couldn't bring myself to get rid of it. But I decided to take it with me when I moved, and didn't make too much effort to protect it. Pair that with its shoddy initial construction and it was torn apart during the move.
