If you’re an 1980’s kid, then you probably remember the 8-bit video game system – the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). The NES was selling like hot cakes and had many peripherals, like the NES Power Glove. The long but forgotten device gets a new use by animator Dillon Markey.
The documentary is “Europe In 8 Bits” takes a look at “chip” music and how it’s growing in Europe. Many musicians are looking back to old school videogame hardware like NES, Amiga, Commodore 64, Sega Master System, etc and using them to create new sounds. What catches the eye is the animated 8-bit opening to the documentary. Here’s a look:
Andre is a video game collector from France and he was able to sell his video game collection for about $1.23 million USD on eBay. This huge collection consists of over 7,000 games and 22 game consoles.

I just want to tell my mom now that I’m pissed she threw out all my old NES and SEGA consoles and games!
