Can we all agree that Metal Slug has some of the best pixel art of all time?

The Metal Slug team is absolutely fucking crazy

No one said “hey, we need you guys to create like a dozen giant intricately-animated bosses at a totally ridiculous resolution”

THE LIGHTING CHANGES WHEN THE CANNON GOES OFF AND EVERYTHING

THE PLAYER CHARACTERS ALL HAVE LITTLE RELOAD ANIMATIONS IN A GAME WHERE YOU NEVER ACTUALLY HAVE TO STOP SHOOTING

AND JUST IMAGINE THE THOUGHTS THAT WENT THROUGH THEIR HEAD WHEN THEY MADE THESE

JESUS

AND THAT’S WHY I FUCKING LOVE METAL SLUG.

I aspire to make pixel sprites this fucking awesome.

Indie game devs that make really shitty-looking pixel “art” need to take a lesson from Metal Slug. Pixel art in old games like that aren’t about “how minimal can the design be given the hardware provided?”, they were more like “with the hardware provided, how much can be done with it?”

Out of curiosity, could you take a moment to reblog this if you believe that demisexuality exists? I’m demisexual, and I feel like demisexuality goes really under the radar, even within the asexual community umbrella. A lot of people don’t believe that it exists, and even within the ace community, demisexuality is still questioned as being legitimate, although we share the same flag. So reblog this is if you believe it exists. image
