This infographic is all about the treasures you collect. Many video games offer rewards for collecting enough treasure, such as extra life, new magic, or access to new levels. For other games, collectibles are a part of the plot. In Sonic the Hedgehog, the collectible (and difficult to find!) chaos emeralds are used to unlock the final secret level in the early games.
It's also interesting to see how many video game collectibles are a kind of jewelry. Even the collectibles that aren't diamonds, emeralds, or gems wind up being made of gold or silver! This infographic is a visual compendium of some memorable video game treasures. Which do you think would make the coolest real life jewelry?
