Top 5 Old School Video Game Adaptations of Modern Hollywood

Categories: Gaming

There's a Jersey Shore one. We didn't put it on the list, but we did make sure you knew about it because if we're going to suffer, so are you.
We talk a lot about video games here because they'll pay us to do so and holy crap that sentence gets more awesome every single time we type it. Even though we've finally grown up and embraced the complete awesomeness of seventh-gen systems and the photorealistic magic and being of Batman, a part of us will always long for the days of 8-bit and 16-bit gaming that we grew up with.

Apparently we're not the only people who think that the NES era technology still has relevance. Here are five great modern classics reimagined as old-school Nintendo games that we would drop real money on if they were actually available.

05. Dr. Horrible's Sing-long Game

This game would sell itself simply by putting "You control Neil Patrick Harris" on the box. Sure, it looks mostly like an obnoxious fetch quest of a title, but even the possibility of there being a code that unlocks an ending where Felicia Day lives is worth any amount of scavenger hunting. Playing the game isn't an option, but you can download a sweet chiptune version of the soundtrack here.

04. Breaking Bad RPG

We've been meaning to give Breaking Bad, and this Famicon-style adaptation has pretty much sealed the deal. Plus, if you slow down the text, we're pretty sure it offers helpful advice on making meth. Not that we want to make meth or anything, we just love learning.
