Enjoy This Badass 16-bit Title Screen Art

We've seen title art from modern games. And from NES games. Today, we're hitting the ground somewhere in between with a collection of animated title screen art from the Genesis/Mega Drive and Super Nintendo.

These images come courtesy of Title Scream, a site run by Kiwi interactive designer Cameron Askin which is looking to preserve and celebrate some of the most memorable (yet unheralded) art in video game history.

His site runs from the NES days through to the mid-90s, but since we've already featured NES art previously, I'm sticking to the 16-bit stuff today.

Most, though not all, of the images above are animated, so give 'em a second or two to kick in. Also, they're just a selection; for the full collection, brew some tea, settle in and head to Title Scream.

Total Recall is a look back at the history of video games through their characters, franchises, developers and trends.
