Retro Video Games Revisited

We've got a bit of a thing for alternative posters here on ShortList.com. Some would say it's a dangerous obsession, but our doctor assures us that it will remain a "keen passion" so long as we keep taking our pills.

As such, we decided to try something a little different to our usual process of commissioning alternative film posters and take our first tentative steps into the vast world of video games. We're so glad we did.

We commissioned some of our favourite artists to come up with a unique set of posters that sees retro classic video games reimagined for next generation consoles. Some are cute, some are high concept, all of them are excellent.

If you think you have what it takes to get involved in our next video game gallery then please email david.cornish@shortlist.com.
