Umm... are you going to drink that Skooma?

There are multiple layers of magic to the sweetroll that is video games, where graphics are the icing and its content the... content. But there's nothing quite like the moment when all of these ingredients and more coalesce and bring together an occurrence so damn mind-blowing or just downright awesome that it sticks with you forever. Much like sweetroll in a cavity.

It used to be hard to describe these moments to people before YouTube and Twitch began streaming gameplay to every device you own, or consoles allowed you to take native screenshots of games in action and share them across social networks.

And now that we have these options, you wouldn't think the idea of creating dioramas of moments from classic NES, Super NES Game Boy, and Sega Genesis/Mega Drive games would be a good idea, would you?

A wonderful way of remembering some of the most iconic moments in classic games. Oh, you do? Well that's lucky, because this brilliant artist agrees!

Over on DeviantArt, user Mark Green takes papercrafting to a whole new level by literally taking mental screenshots of games such as Super Mario World and Tetris, and building some incredible paper dioramas of the action.

Take a look for yourself:

Castlevania (NES)

The Legend of Zelda (NES)

Justice League: Task Force (Sega Mega Drive)

Super Mario World: Ghost House (Super NES)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (NES)

DuckTales (NES)

They're great right? If you like what you see, get over to Green's DA page and if you ask him nicely enough, he'll send you a template of whichever diorama you so desire.

So get asking!
