These are great! My favorite is the Leisure Suit Nighthawks.

Here’s a reverse challenge for you: famous paintings found in classic adventure games. Go!

(Update: someone already made these nice screengrabs of the Lucasfilm pixel-Suerat paintings, which were the ones I was thinking of! Now I don’t have to fire up ScummVM! PS: I’ve long loved the idea of A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, the original pixel art piece, being further referenced via pixelation in these games, an homage to the pointillism that had come almost exactly a century before)
