The reality of how newer games are designed is that they want to get as close to reality as possible. Older games? It was an exercise in making the game fun, regardless of how it translated to real life. So when you say, "Ugh, why can't Pacman be real?" think again.
Patrick Runte, a german photographer, decided to take his shot at making some of the most iconic video games in history and turning them into real life art pieces in a series he calls "Jump N' Run."
I love the Pacman one, but the Flipper one kills me. It looks so stupid its funny. I also like the Tetris one because it looks like the before picture where the pieces are just hanging out before falling having some coffee or something.
