Most gaming fans will either have their own memories or a folder on their computer in which to keep their favorite gaming moments alive. But some fans go the extra mile to try and immortalize their experiences of #VideoGames forever.
Here I have brought together the best examples of when fans have used incredible skill and craft to bring their favorite gaming objects to life. These objects may represent the best part of a game or the most iconic object in a game, and with the help of these fans, their generation-changing legacies will live on, not just in our memories but in the real world too!
Life-Size Aku Aku Mask From 'Crash Bandicoot'
This has to be one of the most recognizable objects in all of gaming history—the Aku Aku mask from Crash Bandicoot is here brought to life using just clay and paint. Apparently it took about 16 hours to make, but it was definitely worth it to give something back to that spirited witch doctor that guided us through the jungle.
A Real 'Legend Of Zelda' Treasure Chest
These treasure chests are scattered around The Legend of Zelda universe, often containing weaponry, maps and other various items Link might need on his quests. From the size of this chest, hand made from wood, it probably holds something pretty special inside.
I love this: it's simple and yet effective. The helmet of a Spartan warrior is definitely one of the most iconic objects in gaming history, saving many of us from countless blasts from our Covenant and Flood enemies.
Hand-Sewn Companion Cube Quilt From 'Portal'
The companion cube was introduced in Portal in Test Chamber 17, and it became a friend that we had to use extensively to solve almost all the puzzles thereafter. I remember walking around the test chamber slowly discovering that someone had previously fallen in love with the cube. However, at the end of this level players must actually put the cube into an incinerator. Well, thankfully, this Redditor has saved the cube from its fate!
A 'Space Invaders' Wall
I love this. Why? Because, as the Redditor explains, this was in a burger restaurant in between the male and female toilets. It made his journey to the toilets more enjoyable, just like it made a generation of youngsters ever more addicted to video games.
'Rocket League' 3D Chalk Art
If you have ever played Rocket League, then you'll recognize the mayhem that this chalk art represents. Driving up the sides of walls and smashing the metal ball with a boost from your car; it's all part of the experience, and here it is brought to life in glorious 3D, albeit only from one direction.
Remote Control 'Mario Kart' Shells
Crafted, painted and then played with using remote control. What a legacy for the Koopa Shells that have taken down so many players in their paths. I love the fact that they are remote controllable, I just wonder what they'll be used for? Maybe something resembling Robot Wars!
Pokemon Clay Version
I can't quite believe that someone actually put in the time to create 151 Pokemon in clay form, all atop of pennies! They look seriously awesome and capture the style of the mons just perfectly.
Real Life Nuka-Cola Bottle From Fallout
In the universe of Fallout, Nuka-Cola was the most popular soft drink before the Great War. Surprisingly, many of the drinks survived the war making it just as popular in the post-apocalyptic world too. Incredibly, the bottle tops are now often used as currency in-game. This fan decided to recreate Nuka-Cola as we see it in this famous landscape, and it looks so good. Maybe this will start a new craze?
