NES Cart Art

This post has been edited by the GamesBeat staff. Opinions by GamesBeat community writers do not necessarily reflect those of the staff.

When you think of a NES Cartridge, you probably think of a dull grey piece of plastic that requires excessive amounts of coaxing and blowing-into to work properly. What you probably forget about is the artwork that adorned the label of each and every cartridge.  

Some of the art was terrible, but much of it was quite memorable — see for yourself in this two-part gallery of NES cartridges that I put together from my collection.

Part 2 of the gallery is here.
