This series of incredible video game “demakes” is from artist Junkboy over at WayofthePixel. A “demake,” in case you haven’t guessed, is a rendering of a current game if it were made on an older console. In this case usually something like Genesis, SNES, NES or Game Boy.

The results are pretty stunning, and there’s a whole gallery of these, in addition to Resident Evil 5 here above, that you can view below. I’ve figured out what most of the titles being demade are here, but I’ve missed a few and I’ll need your help to figure out the rest.

Check them out:

Bioshock

    the missing titles are of course metroid prime (or perhaps Metroid:other M) and the other one is definetely Sin and Punishment 2 :D

  • Chak

    The first ??? might be Metroid Prime or so on Game Cube, or where ever it came out.

  • Bashman

    Third pic down is ‘Metroid: Other M’ :)

  • Banocho

    The ??? entry is Sin & Punishment I belive

  • Bashman

    p.s. all look great!!

  • John

    The one you just have 3 question marks for I believe is supposed to be Metroid Prime

  • Freckles

    #3 looks Metroid-ish… just from the visor and the weapon.

  • Branden

    I think the first one is Bioshock 2, not the first one.

  • Mark

    Thinking the first ‘???’ is one of the Metroid Primes.
    Also, Smash Bros retro would have been so awesome!
    Thats something they could easily bring out for the DS.
    But I’ll keep dreaming…

  • LAO

    Since no one else has said it yet, that third one pictured is Metroid.

  • Henrik

    That Super Smash Bros image is from an actual flash game. It been a while since i have played it, but i think it was on Newgrounds. It was pretty fun. I have to find it again.

  • Ledon

    The one below Batman: Arkham Asylum is Metroid Prime.
    The one below MGS4 is Sin and Punishment

  • james

    The one everyone is saying metroid looks like halo 2 or 3 to me.

  • Michael Ellingham
  • xXburekXx

    the first ??? i think is metroid prime or halo

  • Matt Chi

    benjaminson nailed it immediately on the first comment, I dunno why people still keep trying to name them.

  • Brendan

    I believe the “Killzone” one is Gears of War…….just for the dudes bandana! Could be completely wrong though. Amazing find!

  • Ssyrie

    I’d play most of those games if someone actually made them.

  • Basthian

    first ??? metroid other m
    second ??? sin and punishment

    Hello,

    Just found this collection menwhile searching for demakes, because my artcile is greatly covers it.
    So, I want to told you, that in the ex_USSR in the 90′s the 90% of computers were ZX Spectrum 128 clones.
    As from 1993 the official support of ZX Spectrum ‘platform’ was stopped, crazy Russians made amazing demakes for ZX128 from Amiga and PC (amazing means, respecting the capatibilities of the machine.)
    See:

    Also worth to check the best of bests conversion on YouTube, as Prince of Persia, Mortal Kombat demo, etc.
