    Today’s games are great, but they just don’t carry the same immeasurable nostalgic value as, say, Chrono Trigger, Link’s Awakening, or even Number Crunchers. Now Stockholm-based pixel artist Junkboy has hypothesized for Swedish magazine Level what it might have looked like had contemporary games—Arkham Asylum, Bioshock, Guitar Hero, Little Big Planet, Red Dead Redemption, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Soul Calibur, and more—existed in the golden age of 8- and 16-bit gaming. Of course, several of these games indeed had low-bit predecessors!

    Compare the full series of “demake” images to their modern originals, below.

    problem is with modern games today is if you striped them of their nice next gen "graphics" and put them in a retro form you can see what the games are really all about about, most of today's games rely heavily on graphics more than anything else back in the day that wasn't part of what made a game good, gameplay mainly was.

    Hah, I wish FFXIII was like that. Overall these are really well done. A lot of em gave me a chuckle and they're pretty creative. I did question why there was a Mario Kart one though...

    They look better as 16 bit if you ask me. Hell, Final Fantasy XIII looks almost playable.

    There was actually one of that set where they demade Brutal Legend to be an old Lucasarts point and click adventure. THAT would rock so much balls.
