Re: Tied to This World



Some of us are born to play our roles in life, and some are just born to play. It is the rare occasion when the two paths cross, merging into one continuous procession of 8-bit perfection. While this controller knows no life beyond the confines of his home base, he happily serves as ambassador between reality and unbridled imagination.

Cool entry. I thought this would be a great derby for video game designs. I entered an abstract design titled "Air...Oh" consisting of all...arrows.

bradyson is right, this does need zelda. another design banking on peoples' love of the nintendo. well, perhaps one day you'll have an original design of your very own!

Honestly, this is too low on the shirt. I know people say "no one tucks in their t-shirts anymore" but I know guys that do and they just wouldn't appreciate a controller in their pants. (don't most gamer nerds just flat out want a girl there anyway?)

I think it would have benefited from being on a gray instead (we don't have silver, and heather wouldn't have worked, so you're stuck with asphalt) but I would have made the line red to make it stand out and be vibrant, not subtle. There's nothing subtle about old skool consoles.

What if the controller has rumble?


Man, that was crass. I apologize, everyone. >_>

Yeah, I'm one of those guys. I'd vote for this shirt if the design wasn't so low. Chest, center... please?

And perhaps one day you'll just shut up and realize that MANY people are still going to make Nintendo designs no matter how much you don't like them.

I dunno, I have mixed feelings about the SNES. . . even accounting for nostalgia, it's worn out its welcome in the popular psyche. Sure, it was an advance for its day, but, let's face it, in the grand scheme of things the SNES kinda doesn't measure up.

Just my opinion.
