If you happen to take a look at Google Maps today, and presumably tomorrow, you will be greeted by 8-bit graphics that look like they belong on the NES. There is even an instructional video describing how to get Google Maps on an actual NES. Google Maps has found its way onto several types of systems, and Google decided that it wanted to get into the ancient console market as well. The full map of the Earth is very well done, and my hometown is just as sparse in 8-bit as 3D.

I really needed this 35 years ago on my Sinclair ZX81
