Crosses between Needs Help and Just a Face and a Caption slightly, but unless the current image representing the first game is agreed as a good one and I'll go find a HQ one from Trilogy, I've got some suggestions:

"Two years ago, the rest of the world knew it as... The "Joe Darke Killings"."

"What I saw then burned a permanent picture in my mind. I... I can still see it now..."

I feel that the second one might be a better fit without many spoilers. There was this other one where Manfred Von Karma brandished a taser, but it was kinda hard to see said taser when I looked it over.

The page has three pics in folders:

Of these, the only one that I think is even slightly good is the last one. I prefer 1.2 of the suggestions.

I prefer 1.2, and the caption suggestion is good. I don't like 2.1 because it's Damon Gant's default facial expression (he makes that same face when you first see him, before you even know who he is), and the caption isn't even from the game.

Edit: While I like 2.3 as well (including the caption), it might be too spoiler-heavy.

Leaning on 1.2. The image looks scary and the B&W tint serves to make it a lot more unsettling IMO. Aside from that, I like 2.2 and 2.3, though as stated before, the latter is spoiler-heavy so. Hard [tdown] on 2.1; there's nothing illustrating a scary aspect nor any context. That, and it's somewhat spoilerific.

2.2 at least isn't spoiler-heavy, since it's from the intro to the first case in Justice for All.

I don't mind having a pic in each folder, since they are different games. 1.2 for the first game's folder, keep the other two.

I think the second folder picture (2.2) is the only passable image. The others are so ridiculously plain for NF.

Given that 2.2 is starting to be decided as the sole pic, should I go find a higher-quality version of it from Trilogy in the meantime?

[up] 1.2 and 2.2 are neck-and-neck if I counted right, but still, it couldn't hurt to find a higher quality version of 2.2.

I prefer 1.2 out of all of them, since it's actually showing a murder in progress. I also wouldn't consider it a spoiler, since IIRC it's actually a flashback to a different case, not the one that the episode's actually about.

The rest:

1.1 and 2.1 are JAFAAC.

2.2 is just... weird, I don't see what's scarier about it over 1.2.

2.3 would be my second choice, but that one actually is a spoiler.

[up]I'll go with this one since I previously discussed multiple images.

If I'm allowed to vote for my own suggestions, I'll go with 1.2, based on the feedback of the others. It seems like the most-fitting.

Calling this one as 1.2's at super-consensus level. It's in and tagged; locking up.
