Diablo III

In a freaky alternative dimension, Atari not only won the first console war with the Colecovision and the Intellivision, it also managed to keep up market dominance for over 30 years. Alright, that might be a little too BioShock Infinite-ish, but we can imagine divergent history with the help of these beautiful images of modern games imagined as Atari 2600 cartridges.

Artist StarRovias captures that dazzling but less-than-informative art style found on real Atari 2600 cartridges while invoking our memories of the final products, but I can’t help but wonder what Persona 4, Diablo III, and the Sims would look like as simplistic retro games.

Be sure to check StarRovias’ DeviantArt gallery for more images. Some of the pictures are decidedly not safe for work and aren’t included in the gallery.
