Add Some Style and Class to That Growing Video Game Collection

Jasmine:

Being a gamer nowadays isn’t really a social stigma, but after a certain age people might start raising an eyebrow at your video game collection. Rather than having to explain your habits, why not cleverly disguise them as books? After all, most people appreciate and respect a person who has done a lot of reading.

Designer, James Bit, created these highbrow video game covers “to bring that virtual world back to life” in order to fit a more “mature” lifestyle. The camouflaging jackets emulate the bindings of classic Penguin books, with a few tweaks: Instead of the penguin logo, there’s a joystick and of course replacing the “Penguin Books” title is “James Bit Books.” Everything else about the design is pretty much identical. Of course, the colors weren’t added to the Penguin Book classics until a little later, but hey, nitpick. (Culture, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

So you can buy game cases... to replace your game cases?

It would be more "mature" to embrace the things you like without shame rather than try to hide them.

Hiding then really isn't the point. It's just a design quirk, simple.
