New games, made NEStalgic

8smw2nI

There’s something magical about the way that we used to play video games. That feeling of tethering a Golden China or Sega Megadrive to a TV, flipping channels until we tuned it in and then thrusting a cartridge into the console to play a game. Before taking it out, blowing into it and getting it back in again. In the future, we most likely won’t even have physical copies of games. It’ll be download only. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t project the past onto the oncoming generations of games.

Which is what we’ve got here, via All Games Beta. Beautifully nostalgic and current, all wrapped up into one game cover. Hell, can you imagine playing 8 or 16 bit versions of blockbuster games from today, yesterday? It’d make for an awkward conversation when you tell your friend to blow Max Payne if he doesn’t want to work.

On a serious topic, does anyone here know who made these? Credit where credit is due and all that.

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.
