Pretty much all of those box arts have an 80's vibe to them, but I do love it. Some great pieces of art in there!

NES 80's boxart is very Nostalgic to me. It adds something more to the idea of the game than JUST the game. It helps give it a certain feeling when you match the box art with the game. It's a small part, but an important one IMO.

* 90's Box art with Sega/SNES/N64/PS1 was also pretty cool, but I prefer cartridge boxes to Cd Cases.
