  1. Ok, sorry I had to use that as the subject, but I figured it would get the most attention and this definately deserves attention.
    Basically what it is is a story written by someone that is good with flash and used the original NES sprites in a flash movie to create a drama based on mario (mario 1 nes style). A buddy of mine mirrored the links to his site so please if you like it don't go whoring it out to places like /. (although I'm sure they already have seen it months ago - but I mean don't post it somewhere where its going to get an incredible amount of hits).

    Anyway enjoy and please post comments: http://web.umr.edu/~pigg/mario/

    It's pretty good, I've seen all 4 episodes ( are there more ? ).

    I like animations that use Old School game footage. *sniff*

    Heh, that was probably directed better than half the major Hollywood movies I have ever seen.

    Hilarious.

    Go to http://www.newgrounds.com/ -> Flash Portal & you can do a search on Classic Gaming. There are loads of nice animations with old games ( especially 8-bit NES ).

    Some animations are for a mature audience, mind you.;)

    5, is the last one. I read it on a site - the dude says he's tired of working with sprites, but he feels he needs to finish what he started.
