Sorry to drag everybody down the nostalgia hole, but sometimes we miss the old way of doing things. Back when games came in cartridges and your graphics settings were either "on" or "off", and your sole source of hype was a theme song and an intro screen to get you pumped up for the adventure ahead. It's that exact feeling these designers recapture in these mockups that make us yearn for bleeps and the bloops that never were.
