Musician AaronGrooves puts a seriously shiney new coat of paint onto the theme music from the 1980s arcade game Pac-Man, playing the classic 8-bit tune on xylophone, drums, ukulele, cowbell, and a loop machine.
A handheld edition of the classic Atari 2600 game console with a 3.2″ color display. It comes pre-loaded with 60 games, and can also play game ROMs loaded onto an SD card too. Has a built-in rechargeable battery, and can connect to a TV with RCA composite inputs.
Using the classic Nintendo game Tecmo Bowl, YouTuber irishkidd84 replicated all of the scoring plays from Super Bowl 51. No matter what resolution you watch the game in, the Patriots’ comeback is just as mindblowing. The only thing missing is a pixelated Lady Gaga.

Animator Paul Robertson created this awesome pixelated version of the intro from Rick and Morty. We’re hoping there’s a dimension like this and they’ll do a whole episode there. Maybe they can address the whole “it’s not 8-bit, it’s 16/32/64-bit” argument once and for all.
