How long has it been since you’ve changed your desktop wallpaper? Probably too long. That stuff’s like underwear – you’ve got to keep it at least pseudo-fresh. Three months is pushing it, buddy.

Don’t be nasty. Change it up today. Here are some good candidates for a newer, fresher computer desktop. These gamer-themed nuggets were all done in a minimalistic style and created by 14 year old Patrick Waye (or dragonitearmy as he’s known on deviantART). More after the jump.

    Awesome. I wish I were better at Photoshop so I could fix that myself, because that’s an awesome wallpaper.

      Yeah, these are pretty slick. Ol’ Stevie there has already been migrated to my son’s PS3 background and it lines up nicely.

      There’s a ton more in Patrick’s gallery, all of them well done.

    Luigi seems to be stuck in a mirror.

      It took me way too long to figure out what you meant. Nice catch.

        Ha! I somehow left out the word “Luigi” in my comment. I meant “so I could fix that Luigi myself”.

        I tried a few different things, including just flipping the emblem horizontally, but I couldn’t get it to work. I’d have to actually redraw the L in, hence the need for Photoshop skills.

          I wondered if that’s what you meant, but then figured you guys must have been talking about something else.

          If you’re cool with Luigi being on the left side, you could just flip the whole thing.

          Ah, I misunderstood your OC. Make much more sense now.

          Sheeeeit, homie. You know where you are: http://i.imgur.com/QKqKm1o.png
