NES...Word by M-Watts-Art NES...Word by M-Watts-Art
I had to make a recognizable image using only text in my Illustrator class. So, I decided to make a NES controller using game titles. I also threw in two peices of hardware and the contra code.

If you are a fan of this, take a look at the Gameboy--> [link]

I pulled from a list of NES games from Wikipedia. A lot of these were chosen at random.

I played only a handful of those games. Luckily I managed to buy an NES from a place in my hometown. Now I can buy games I read about in old issues of Nintendo Power as well as old avorites of mine.
