Messenger Bags for Old School Gamers (and Everyone Else)
August 27th, 2009
Certain images from the classics of gaming are burned indelibly into our brains; they are so iconic that they are recognizable not just to gamers, but to nearly anyone who has paid attention in the last couple of decades. And if you have to put something game-related on a messenger bag, it might as well be something people know.
You know, looking at this, the opening of Super Mario Bros., it occurs to me that I couldn’t possibly guess how many times I have played through this moment of the game. I think the motions are probably so ingrained in my fingers that I could do it with my eyes closed. But is that a testament to the game, or to the NES’s amazing gamepad?
I like the blue on the Mario bag, but it has to lose out to the controller that lives on in my heart. But whatever your tastes, from Donkey Kong to Pac-Man, you can find it in the 16-BIT Etsy shop.
