The Great Gatsby and Waiting for Godot: The Video Game Editions

Some geniuses have taken two literary classics and reworked them as retro video games. The Great Gatsby Game, obviously based on the classic by F. Scott Fitzgerald, reworks the game in vintage Nintendo Style. The clip above gives you a little preview, but you can always play the game right here. Then, for a little more absurdist fun, the Waiting for Godot Game awaits you. The game, sporting a throwback 70s look, requires you to download a plugin – one we can’t vouch for. So may just want to watch this YouTube clip. You’ll get the schtick pretty quick.

By the way, you can read both classics online — Find The Great Gatsby here, and Waiting for Godot here. Both are listed in our collection of Free eBooks.
