Nostalgia for old Nintendo games is still at an all-time high, and artist Stefan Birgir pays tribute to the enormously successful Japanese gaming company by rendering images of the various cartridges that go along with all the console systems they’ve produced. Nothing’s overlooked as cartridges for the NES, SNES, Game Boy and N64 are all here.

Stefan Birgir appropriately illustrates each image using a pixel art style, emulating the graphics commonly seen when these vintage software devices were booted up. Birgir also incorporates the word "nostalgia" into every picture in place of the iconic Nintendo logo.

Browsing Stefan Birgir’s eclectic Society6 page, you’ll find works inspired by video games, comic books, cinema and pop culture. Birgir also has an affinity for Andy Warhol, having emulated his style numerous times in his artwork. Stats for Retro Game Cartridge Renderings Trending: Older & Mild
