Thanks as always to geographer Matt Rosenberg for bringing yet another bit of geographic whimsy my way. Programmers at Google have -- for this week only -- created an April Fool's Day version of Google Maps that resembles the old-school, 8-bit graphics used in the 1985 Nintendo. (Yes, I had been using even more primitive TRS-80 computers, so I remember this being an advance!) As Matt explains, the temporary "Quest" link toggled on this low-resolution digital model. Since it was temporary, I captured my hometown above, and I provide this direct link.
