While the classic movie Fight Club from David Fincher and starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton may have received a lackluster video game translation for the PlayStation 2 and original XBox back in 2004, this is the â€œvideo gameâ€ version you have been waiting for… full-on 16-bit side-scrolling button-mashing action! Check out the video below.
The most excellent minds behind the YouTube series 8-Bit Cinema have retold the basic storyline of Fight Club using mostly 16-bit generation graphics and game elements with huge success here. Veteran gamers will most likely recognize the foundational elements of the fighting â€œgameplayâ€ being pulled from the Genesis series Streets of Rage and what might be Final Fight or Fatal Fury. Special kudos for incorporating bonus rounds featuring a sliding penguin and having to catch bags of liposuctioned fat.
Be sure to stick around to the end for the videoâ€™s credits featuring a MIDI/chiptune version of The Pixiesâ€™ classic â€œWhere is My Mind?â€, which also closed out the credits of the actual film.
