Get This Precious Retro Hobbit Game Into My iPad Right Now

I fondly remember one of the very first games I played on the Sinclair ZX Spectrum: The Hobbit, a text adventure with crude illustrations that was probably made in BASIC. It was crap, but this Hobbit game looks great. So good that it makes me hate the Cinefix guys for making these awesome videos without actually releasing any real games.


Brutal Scenes From Game Of Thrones Turned Into 8-Bit GIFs

The cultural explosion that is Game of Thrones has spawned countless passion projects: the Wiki of Ice and Fire, heavy metal covers of the intro music, artisanal hair braiding lessons.

This 8-bit Game Movie Remake Of Inception Is Great, As Usual

As usual, every single time I see one of these movie remakes as an 8-bit retro game I feel the nostalgia of playing something that I never played. Their version of Inception is, once again, impeccable. I wish these people made games instead of just videos.

Someone Needs To Make This 8-Bit Abrams Star Trek Video Game Right Now

There’s a very good chance that if you’re a fan of Star Trek, you’re also a fan of video games. And even if you didn’t grow up in a time when 8-bit graphics were mind-blowing, it’s still easy to love this condensed re-telling of J.J. Abram’s first Star Trek movie as told via the original NES.


This 8-Bit Video Will Make You Miss Your Childhood In The '90s

It’s every generation’s responsibility to grow old and talk about how growing up back then was so much more fun than growing up today. THESE KIDS KNOW NOTHING.
