How Our Favorite Films Will Look Like In 8-Bit Game Format

May, 15, 2014: Someone stumbled upon the idea of ‘gamifying’ famous Hollywood films, and they result is nothing short of brilliant.

We adore movies and we love video games, but how about if we get to play our favorite movies as video games, and that too in 8-bit format?

No need to get hysterical, it isn’t happening yet. It is, however, possible for us to watch our beloved movies in 8-bit game format and – spoiler alert – they’re awesome.

YouTube channel CineFix is on a God-send mission to ‘gamify’ some of the best Hollywood flicks of all time; the latest in the series is Forrest Gump.

It is fairly interesting, and even pleasantly surprising, to see how well Forrest Gump works as a video game. There are sports missions, war missions, chase missions, and even the shrimp-boat mission which oddly seems a lot of fun.

We cannot wait for the game to become a reality, and someone has to take the initiative. Come on internet, we’re counting on you.

Apart from Forrest Gump, CineFix has gamified other films as well. Here’s a look at the top three:

3. A Clockwork Orange

It's funny how the colors of the real world only seem really real when you viddy them on the screen.

Lovely lovely Ludwig Van and a smashing bit of ‘ultra-violence’. What else can one want from life?

2. Fight Club

This game works really well as a Street Fighter version of the David Fincher’s Fight Club. Oops, we broke rule number one. Sorry Tyler.

1. Pulp Fiction

Can it get any better than this? Jules and Vincent retrieve the briefcase, Butch gets his father’s golden watch, and Mia and Vincent do the twist. Sadly, Marvin still gets shot in the face. Poor Marvin.
