Massive Retro-RPG-Gallery


Felipe Pepe schreibt ein Buch über die Geschichte der RPGs und weil er für viele der alten Klassiker keine „hochauflösenden“ Screenshots ohne JPG-Artefakte fand, hat er drei Jahre lang selber gezockt und gescreenshottet, 16000 Screens verteilt auf ein paar hundert Alben auf Flickr, „includ[ing] Fallout, Mass Effect, The Elder Scrolls, Ultima I, Dark Souls, Deus Ex, Diablo“ und jede Menge mehr.

An annoying issue when talking about old RPGs is getting good screenshots for them. MobyGames is great, but some really rare games have very few images, usually only from the first area, and sometimes they are compressed in .jpeg. So since I began this project 3 years ago, I’ve been taking .png screenshots of very single RPG I’ve played. They are currently just over 10.000 images, including stuff I never saw before in screenshots, like a multiplayer round of Dark Messiah of Might and Magic.
