The Great Gatsby for NES - have you seen this??
I'm assuming everyone here knows about this and I'm late to the party (old chap) but I searched the forum and find no mention of 'gatsby'.


Apparently this is a real game, an unpublished port from a Japanese game? The guy found it at a yard sale? I don't know, the whole thing reeks of fake backstory for an internet joke, but the game is surprisingly fun.

Also, I would totally buy this awful novel if it came with the cover for the game:

I found the novel to be kind of overrated. I guess. Or maybe my opinion is overrated by me, but either way it sort of bored me.

Yeah I really didn't like the story much in high school, but this game intrigues me. The boxart is awesome.

Definitely not real, it's a homebrew made by one guy that he just released a few days ago. Looks pretty cool. The fake magazine ad is awesome.

@Orbital74 Disappointed but much less confused. Although I dunno, I could have more faith in humanity if 90's Japan produced cool literary video games.

Posted about it on PK Gaming on Wednesday


I had some fun with it but didn't play through completion.

Probably fake, I mean that boxart seems way too modern looking.

Talk about a way to disgrace a classic novel though, lol.

@Brick Not as bad as what EA did with Dante, right?

Hmmm...a Divine Comedy 8 bit game...

Yeah. Even though I was actually interested in that game, I'll admit that it was indeed just a horrible way to adapt that epic poem. Really could have worked better as a Silent Hill clone.

Does Zelda make a cameo?

@anandxxx Aaaahh I forgot about Zelda Fitzgerald! That's it, it's a real name, I'm naming my next daughter that.
