'The Great Gatsby' Gets 8-Bit Platformer Treatment

8-Bit Great Gatsby
This "garage sale find" (yeah, right...) game, based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's literary classic, is a blast. You take control of Nick Carraway as he hurls his hat at waiters, drunks and gangsters in a quest to track down Gatsby. The game is short, sweet and simple, and filled with NES-style cut scenes that tell the story in a way that should be familiar to anyone who has played an 8-bit RPG. We could prattle on and on about this gem, but it wouldn't do it any justice. Hit up the source link to play through 'The Great Gatsby for NES.' Trust us, you don't want to miss this one.
