    Minecraft has been great for people who want to look backwards at the history of video games.

    It's easy to go and build a sprite out of blocks, since they match up perfectly with the pixels all game characters used to be rendered with. YouTuber SethBling has gone several steps further though, creating a working Atari 2600 emulator in Minecraft's creative mode.

    Well you can finally watch (very slowly), Donkey Kong being played in Minecraft, at the blasting speed of 60 frames in 4 hours! :) :)

    So what do you think? -- What is the most impressive thing you seen built within MineCraft so far?
