These GIFs of Video Game Backgrounds Are Mesmerizing Works of Art

Did you ever realize how silly 2D video game backgrounds are? Especially those in fighting games like in Street Fighter 2 or Samurai Showdown. Random people watching you fight with random objects like planes and dogs around them in random places of the world. Let's fight in an aquarium! Or an airport hangar! Or a gym filled with beefcakes!

RudeBootie, a redditor, created GIFs of the fighting game backgrounds, removing the fighters to reveal true works of art. I would totally want a painting of a Street Fighter 2 background in my apartment. Some are beautiful. Others are hilarious. A few make you nostalgic. All are wonderful—I can't stop looking at them.
