If you were a child of the 80s, you may have fond memories of the Tron video game. But do your recall the other 8-bit creations based on the movies of the day, like Dirty Dancing, Cool Runnings, Rain Man, and Field of Dreams? No? Well, I suppose that’s because they didn’t exactly… exist.
But they do now, thanks to Dan Meth. Meth has animated a clip reel for the “forgotten” Nintendo games of the 1980s. His scope extends beyond the cinema to other cultural events of the decade, from Tank Man, to tearing down the Berlin Wall, to the Chernobyl disaster. It’s absolutely worth a look after the jump.
Via College Humor:
1) I’m impressed that he parodied Dirty Dancing without resorting to a “Nobody puts Baby in a corner” joke.
2) As a Tetris nut, I actually want to play Chernobyl.
