Games with alien-like characters / monsters in them

Name the games where you can meet those Gigeresque species.

I have surprisingly found an alien recently in a polish game called Cyber kick
(upper left corner)



Also Deliverance, first level I would say.

Xenomorph has it on a box cover, not sure if the game itself contains that.

Of course, First Samurai and Cyberpunks. The one in FS is kinda random, though.

I think it definitely does, of course Giger himself contributed much of the artwork for it.

The first thing that sprang to mind for me was the horrific alien boss in Ecco The Dolphin:


Also:
More than one Contra game, notably Contra Alien Wars (too many examples to post screenshots!).
TMNT: Turtles In Time
Xenophobe

It could also be argued pretty easily that Shodan, the AI from System Shock, is based on Giger's artwork.

Would be cool if you posted game names above each screenshot s2325

...mind you I do know most of them but others may not.
