30 Day Video Game Next Generation Challenge Day 19: The Art Of Pixels & Sprites

We ran our first video game challenge all the way back at the end of 2020 so it’s definitely time to revisit it with a new challenge. While it says Next Generation in the title it’s going to focus on gaming across the board as it’s just our silly/clever way of saying it’s our second challenge within this realm.

Today, we want to get things going by talking about retro games and what has come before. What are the best looking of these games that are trying to capture an older aesthetic?

Bonus question: Are pixels and sprite throwbacks overdone? 

Extra Bonus question: What games are shaking them up in new ways?
