We absolutely love video games, and really any design or art related projects that can use our vice as inspiration. The “Video Games vs Real Life” series just does this, fusing reality with the video game worlds we loved to get lost in as kids.

Photographer Aled Lewis took some of our favorite 8-bit video game characters, and placed them into modern world landscapes in this manipulative photo series. The collection includes the likes of car wrecking E. Honda from Street Fighter, Double Dragon’s “beat ’em up” brothers, and Bowser from the world of Mario Kart among many others. Check out the entire collection below.
