Crate and Barrel - Not Just a Store!

Armin Wagner's created a brilliant collection entitled Crates and Barrels, cataloguing the ubiquity of these containers in video game culture. Though they're obviously favorites in 3D games for their simplicity (hey, that's a cube, and that's a cylinder!), there's something kind of pleasing about the way they cross so many genres and generations of games.

You can even get separate lists of the most recently uploaded crates and barrels.
