Gamers looking to increase their street cred should feel comfortable wearing their favorite gaming icons with pride. But if you’re not ready to wear something too over-the-top, then check out these sweet Converse Chuck Taylors, covered with hand-knit gamer designs.
Compared to 15 pixel videos of games, these minimalist prints of video game characters are much more recognizable. Of course it helps that the characters shown are very popular.
Or did they become so popular partly because they have such recognizable features?
If you’ve ever wondered how Ryu and the rest of the warriors who like to battle on thoroughfares would look like if they were transported to Megaman’s original 8-bit world, you probably have too much time on your hands.
If I was asked what video game head-to-head I’d like to see, I’d probably say Sam Fisher against Solid Snake. Or all of the characters in Final Fantasy, villains included, against all the Suikoden characters. Mmmmm want.
No matter what your religion you belong to, you’ll be a believer in the church of 8-bit platform gaming once you see this brilliant work of stained glass art, based on the classic Megaman gaming franchise.
Created by video game enthusiast / artist Gary in Cleveland, it was painstakingly assembled from numerous individually cut colored glass “pixels”.
