UK print studio Dorothy reimagined a bunch of influential video games in the style of an oversized stamp sheet, with each game displayed in a minimalist abstract style along with the year it was released. The artwork celebrates 50 years of gaming and features a lot of the most celebrated games of the past half-century. Not to brag or anything, but I’ve played them all. A lot while I was supposed to be working.
The print features “42 video and arcade games that were considered the best of their time, spanning decades, generations, developers, and consoles and include Asteroids, Pac-Man, Sonic the Hedgehog, Resident Evil, Call of Duty, Animal Crossing, World of Warcraft, Grand Theft Auto, Minecraft and Legend of Zelda.” Which is your favorite of the whole bunch? I think mine has to be Final Fantasy VII, but I also have incredible taste in games.
The sheet is available as an 80 x 60cm (31.5″ x 23.5″) poster for £40 ($49) and would make the perfect gift for the video game lover on your shopping list. Yes, I’m sure they’d REALLY love it. Me– I’m talking about me. Buy it for me.
