Journal FortKnox's Journal: Change your desktop wallpaper 16

For all you old school gamers, here's some desktop wallpapers (most are full compressed complete maps of games for wallpaper). Cool stuff. My fav is the metroids, but I wished they would have assembled the ENTIRE world all[1] (or at least all of brinstar, or whatever) into one mondo wallpaper.

Oh, and sorry if this is a site that is obvious general knowledge and everyone has seen before. :-P

  • Thanks for the link, brought back a lot of good memories :)

    other than that, it's a complete map ;) I just may have to break out the emulators again and play super metroid - that map shows the locations of all those statues (minus meridina & ghost ship) of which I'm pretty sure I didn't find every single one last time I played it.

  • This is the shit, baby. [desktopgaming.com]

    God, I can't believe how many hours (and quarters!) I wasted on that game back in the day. I always was über-eager to go to the grocery store with my parents because they had a Space Invaders machine up in front (one of the first arcade games in the whole area). I'd stay in the front area while they went shopping -- and I'd plunk in all my pocket money (except for the 25 cents for a 16 oz. Dr. Pepper in the deposit bottle, of course) into that damn thing.

    In fact, it was an od

  • Cool links, thanks
  • Galaga? In 1600x1200 resolution? Who are they trying to kid, anyhow? Some arcade, some NES. Kinda good tho'.
