After so many years, I can still vividly remember the day when I got my first gaming console NES. It was one of the happiest days of my life! For those who doesn’t know, NES is an 8-bit video game console that was released back in 1983 by Nintendo.

“As a kid I would become completely immersed in there crude pixel environments and they would seem very real! I thought it would be fun to try to express how gamers see these worlds.

So, for every Nintendo fan it will be a big pleasure viewing these images and remembering those careless childhood days.
