nestography

A while ago I had this project where I was going to play every NES game and write a short… thing about it.

They were mostly weird stories or essays.

That kind of changed a bit and turned into nestography instead.

It’s a series of images captures from the first 100 Nintendo Entertainment System games released in the United States, along with a sentence or two about each.

The problem with me and video games is that I want them to love me as much as I love them and they can’t, so I have to fill in the blanks myself.

That’s it.

In 2008 the normal way to do this would have been to release these one a day for some extended period of time but I’m doing this 1998 style and it’s a “site” that is mostly done and sort of meant as a finished thing, not a serial publication.
