The lights are on
Pop Chart Lab, a site devoted to the curation of interesting data in visually appealing chart forms, recently tackled the Nintendo Entertainment System.
The chart/poster, which you can see below, organizes the more than 700 NES games that were released between 1984 and 1993 in a visualized solar system set adrift in space. There are more than 100 graphics and illustrations highlighting some of the more notable games, and a color-coding system that dictates each game's genre.
You can head to the Pop Chart Lab website to get a better look at the poster, as well as purchase a 24" x 36" for $26. Every poster is numbered, and signed by the artists who created it.

That is quite the impressive chart, and I was really visualizing them.
I'm most definitely ordering this for my wall.
Yep, my eyes hurt.
This is awesome. If I were a Nintendo fan, I'd snap this up in a heartbeat.
Unfortunately, I'm not a Nintendo fan, but I'm still considering this.
I'm taking an information design course right now, I'm in the class as I type this after pulling an all-nighter. Seeing this makes me feel sorry for the poor soul who had to construct it... But it is beautiful.
That is a very nice chart you have there.
I really like it! Though I can't help but wish for a SNES version.
I can't find a good reason to buy this, and the cartridge on the lower left corner bugs me.
