8-Bit Pickers: The Annotated Arcade Cabinet
It is a well documented fact that nerds enjoy enshrining great moments in nerd history in poster form. Today’s 8-Bit Pickers find comes to us from the interestingly named Koboh Department of Consumer Wish Fulfillment.
The design shop created a series of annotated diagrams of famous arcade cabinets, ranging from the entirely common Donkey Kong cabinet to the “it must be big in Japan” New Astro City cabinet.
While the annotations themselves aren’t exactly earth shattering bits of information, they do bring to life each arcade cabinet as a work of art in its own right. Something tells me today’s most popular arcade games (I’m going to guess Golden Tee and Big Buck Hunter) won’t inspire the same kind of artistic treatment. Prove me wrong, Internet.
