Eighties Video Game Dreaming

I pulled this out of a magazine a while ago because I thought it really captured what was going through my mind when I played even the most unsophisticated of video games in the 1980s. The simpler games often made my fill in the gaps with my imagination. Which I think was a pretty common occurrence back then and why the explanation of a retro game being so well-remembered and respected because of “nostalgia” doesn’t always give you the entire picture. Whole worlds were built upon the tiniest amount of pixels and I wouldn’t trade those worlds and the memories I made upon them for anything a modern console can give me.

This art was made by Amy Bryant. I found a few people with this name online, but I could not identify which one made this.
