The "MS Paint Your Favourite Games" Game

Postby MusicallyInspired » Wed Aug 04, 2010 4:19 pm

No artistic ability necessary. Just open MS Paint or any image editor available to you and draw screens, areas, elements, characters, objects, or anything from your favourite games. Don't get too detailed or anything like unnecessary shading or something. Just do a quick mockup. The idea is that it's supposed to look bad.

I'll start:

Good, I bet mine will look worse than yours, even with my best efforts :lol:.

Dude, the definition of bad is very different... dude, that looks pretty damn close. Especially the exploded door...!

I am truly, honesty, seriously impressed at how good everyone's pictures are. All I have to do is blur my eyes and it's like I'm looking at the original game.

And then I had to ruin everything by making this.

Wow, Tawmis, that's impressive!

And, Datadog, I still like your picture: it's way, way, way better than anything I could produce ;)

A clever idea! :lol:

It's probably because you're tackling a VGA shot as opposed to EGA. But then, it makes it that much more amusing! :D

I'm putting a little bit more than 10 minutes in my next one. Should be done in about 5 hours :D. It's a really tough one :? !

It's by far one of the most memoriable scenes in Sierra games for me... because I remember playing LSL1 to death... and then when I got LSL2... that opening scene... I thought, "OMG! Check out these graphics! This is awesome!"

Who would have thought how realistic games would eventually become...
