I love the Internet. Somewhere out there exists a fellow who wondered, "Y'know what I want? A video showcasing title screens from every Famicom game ever created, arranged in chronological order to a swingin' beat." And being that it had not been done before, said fellow up and did it himself. So here you go, gang: every Famicom screen flashing before your eyes at a rapid-fire rate.
It's almost hypnotic, isn't it? The great thing about a video like this is the ways in which you can watch the level of detail and the design standards evolve from the Famicom's three original launch titles -- Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., and Popeye -- in just the title screens. Amazing how things can change in eleven years.
