Sometimes the internet is 100% awesome

Every once in a while I come across a website that makes the internet just the best thing ever. Today I present to you Pica-Pic. which is my new favorite obsession.

If you are a child of the 80s you will remember the first portable handheld games. Black LCD screens, two or three buttons, took 4 AA batteries, horrible yet addicting gameplay. Well Pica-Pic brings some of these back to life for you to play in your web browser.

 

It’s a simple Flash based emulation but a TON of fun. Each game has its own set of controls which are all keyboard mapped. You even get the horrible sounds. I personally hope some of the other LCD games (I’m looking at you Tiger) start showing up.

It is also an interesting reminder to see how far we have come int he gaming industry in such a short amount of time. This once was the cutting edge of video games, now we just had our first 3D handheld console released. Crazy.
