Skip the Book, Movie, and Cliffs Notes... Just Play the Game!

Most movies nowadays have a video game tie-in and they usually suck. Like ET. One of the more rare inspirations for video games is classic literature, but between Lord of the Rings and Dante's Inferno (to some degree) the genre DOES exist. Back in the hayday of the original NES, there was one novel which it seems everyone wanted to play through on their TV sets. Fortunately, through the magic of web-based games, those people can finally fulfill their desires. Without further ado, here is F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby in 8bit glory.


  1. Best game evar. If I remembered anything about that book, I might have been able to make a witty comment.

  2. Hmm, it's been awhile since I read it...guess I forgot about the shooting rampage at the party. At least they captured the homoerotic undertones.
