Though they're never more than images on a screen (and sometimes not even that), video games worlds have a way of lodging themselves into our memory. Mapstalgia showcases the games that people remember by asking them to submit hand-drawn maps from memory, whether they're vague recollections of Call of Duty 4 or renderings of Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance in almost frightening detail. Classics like Legend of Zelda and multiplayer maps (including, of course, de_dust) are well-represented, but there are also some left-field selections — see if you can find the complete map for Pong.
