Friday Fun: Retro Nintendo Wallpapers

By Lowell Heddings on November 1st, 2007

I received so many emails about the Super Mario Bros wallpaper on my screen in the Outlook Desktop article that I figured I’d share the wealth with everybody.

I got the wallpaper from a great site named Desktop Gaming, where people take screenshots of old games from various systems and then spice them up a bit, mostly by adding gradients to make them look good on today’s large screens.

Here’s a few of my favorites…


Duck Hunt – Laugh It Up


Super Mario Bros 2 – Dual Monitor Size


Super Mario Bros 3 (personal favorite)

Definitely worth a look, there’s a ton of screenshots on the list in all different sizes.
