VideoGameSprites.net Links and Affiliates



VideoGameSprites.net Home



Here you will find reviews of sprite archives. Be sure to read the explanation of my rating system.

Want to exchange links with videogamesprites.net? E-mail . (I am primarily interested in other sprite and background galleries.)

Note: I won't affiliate with sites hosted by Freewebs, Geocities, or other free services. The reasoning behind this policy is that these sites tend to be poorly maintained, ad-ridden, and quickly abandoned. Nor will I affiliate with sprite galleries that merely hot-link to content on other sites.

See my link buttons if you prefer a graphical button to a text link.

DESCRIPTION
Creative Uncut Awesome collection of high-resolution RPG illustration art (among other RPG multimedia). Best of all, there are no annoying logos or watermarks on their images. Be sure to check out their forum!
FantasyAnime My friend's site, which covers classic gaming and anime. This site has so many cool things that it's difficult to describe in one paragraph.

It also covers various aspects of the Final Fantasy world, such as species, transportation, jobs, etc. I often consult this site for character names when building VideoGameSprites.net.
