Complementing Please Press Start, the Tumblr blog dedicated to title screens from modern games, NES Title Screens does the same for 8-bit classics like Super Mario Bros., Kung Fu, and others (and is also conveniently hosted on Tumblr).

It was a simpler time for title screens then, when all one had to do was slap a logo, sprites, options, and maybe a high-score on a black background. There's beauty to be found in their minimalism, though, not to mention a bit of charm in details like the selecton indicator.

I've included several shots here, but you can see nearly 90 NES and Famicom title screens (many of them animated!) here.
