Play “The Great Gatsby” … Nintendo Game?

“Whoa. Almost got hit by a chandelier.” – My husband, while playing this game.

Before you go thinking that making a video game version of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby” was the craziest idea Nintendo ever had, know this;  They didn’t.  As Escapist magazine points out, Charlie Hoey (from San Franciso) created the game recently.

That said – it’s a trip.  Play it here.

For those with a fondness for8 bit style games, and for those who get the literary jokes, this might be right up your alley.  You play as leading man Nick Carraway, and basically – you travel through New York and throw things at people.

What will they think of next?
