Solid Archive of Retro Gaming Images?

by Daniel Primed Sat Sep 15, 2007 3:10 am

Hey guys, I am doing a design project and need a slew of images from retro games. Anything that really feels nostalgic, so no screenies. I mean:

-character designs
-marketing, adds, propoganda

Also if it can be helped, the large image sizes(high dpi or just high res scans/pics are fine).

I've had a flick thru this board already but I still need some more.

Hmm, I'll have to check that site out. I have a little bit of older documents that I haven't yet scanned, but I was wondering if someone else has archived them online as well. :)

Sadly, vidgame shut down a little while ago.
Thank goodness WayBackMachine has a bit of it...
