Of all the various styles / genres of design, Art Deco is probably my favourite. The shapes used and particularly the muted colours.
When I was a kid the most spoken phrase in my house was probably Why don’t you turn off that damn video game and go… do just about anything else. Music, art, culture, none of it was to be found in video games apparently.
This Bioshock 2 artwork says otherwise.
The game even includes an LP of the 1950’s music featured in game. Classy.
Don’t fret, there’s a CD included “just in case” you don’t have a record player.
Now about that LP…
I wonder if I can dig up the record player I threw out 15 years ago?
