When we remember the good old times, we can not exclude the 8-bit graphics that amazed us in our childhood. Today, it’s all about nostalgia. Sometimes, the new technologies like anti-aliasing, 3D, anisotropic filtering and many functions that squeeze the power from the new GPUs, are overtaken by the simplicity of the old and still fascinating 8-bit graphic. Artists from all around the world recreated games, maps, movies, and photos, with awesome results. Let’s see some great examples after the break…
