There used to be a time when every sprite in a game was very clearly pixelated, and believe it or not, some artists and developers planned for their limitations. At least, that's what Toru Iwatani did for the original creation Pac-Man. See the concept art after the jump.

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
