The Great Gatsby Game

Reading and writing are my passions. I also adore video games.

The Great Gatsby has been one of my favorite books ever since I first read it. I love the way it feels as a reader, to be drawn into Gatsby's world, getting tangled up in all the hormones and emotions, and I also admire Fitzgerald as a writer with his to fabricate this world and detail it so crisp and serene.

An unreleased Japanese The Great Gatsby video game for NES was bought for 50 cents at a yard sale, and the finder turned into a website to share it. It looks and feels like the old Nintendo 64 Mario game that I grew up with. Interaction with the characters reads like Zelda. And the whole plot has to do with Gatsby?! Ah, I fell in love.

It's hosted online, and free to play. It's pretty short, and easy to beat, yet it's enticing, entertaining and addicting. Play, and enjoy.
