What you think makes your drawing so big (awesome)? Props to ya man, prescription makes me happy to be a gamer.
You mean why has Mapstalgia gotten such a big response? I think it’s just how universal this idea is: there’s tons of people who’ve played video games, for sale who have, sildenafil without really trying to, created these mental maps of fictional worlds that they’re still carrying around with them.
All it takes to make a Mapstalgia map is to sit down and remember a little and put it down on paper. Getting the details right can be hard, but the basic idea is awfully simple. Everybody can do it. Everybody should!
I’ve noticed a lot of new followers the last couple of days, so welcome! If you haven’t drawn up a map already, go ahead and do it; this place runs on your submissions, so send ‘em on in!
Updated version of this Tony Hawk map including box placement, cure 1/4 pipe hip, kicker 2 kicker gap instead of bowl. 1/4 pipe at top right, platform instead of ? marks. Thanks Leek, brought back some awesome memories.
Heh, that’s great. It’d be interesting to see more of these collaborative creations/amendments; if you see something that needs some annotations, give it the old red-pen treatment and submit it as an update!
You know how hard its to draw a octagon so it looks flat? Even a normal octagon is hard!
joseph, treat man, I have no idea what this is! Help me out here. Thanks, internet! And now it’s obvious and I am a doofus, because god dang but I hated that freakin’ Mr. Hand jerk.
Tbh Half Life 1 is a fairly easy game to remember, as you really only go through one room at a time, and there are no loading screens to “disconnect” you.
…Although I find it quite easy to remember what you get attacked by in each room, and even the order of the the rooms, it’s rather harder to remember whether empty corridors and vents turn left or right, or how many times. In some cases I have conveniently twisted an unmemorable corridor so that I could keep drawing in a direction where there wasn’t some map already…
Holy cow. This is epic.
Corinthian, you got a higher-resolution version of this available? Let me know, tumblr’s image size limit makes the small text pretty much unreadable even zoomed in.
It’s terrifying to think that I haven’t played this game in over three years and yet I still remember almost every detail.
Brilliant. Just freakin’ brilliant.
