The always creative Stockholm metro has created yet another eye-popping station and this time they paid homage to the highly addictive arcade games of yesteryears. If you still think Space Invaders is the bee's knees you'll absolutely adore the transformation a metro station in Thorildsplan underwent. The project was headed by artist Lars Arrhenius and features all your 8-bit favorites from Mario to the Pacman.

Lovers of all things pixelated are sure to swoon over this arcade homage. Each turn around this predominantly turquoise transportation jungle reveals yet another familiar video game feature you haven't seen since your NES gave up the ghost back in the late 80s. Since its unveiling of the 8-bit metro station, the Stockholm metro has received a flood of positive feedback. The Finnish band Madcraft created an entire music video centered around rudimentary digital designs.

Breaking all the high scores for style and nostalgia, the 8-bit metro station is a vintage gamer's dream come true.
