George Washington & Ben Franklin, As Seen By Video Games In 1993

Two of America’s founding fathers, George Washington and Benjamin Franklin, will be starring in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed III. It’s not, you know, their first time in a video game.

They’ve been in plenty, some serious, some less so, but my favourite in both cases is 1993 adventure game classic Day of the Tentacle, in which two of the most defining moments involve Washington’s wooden teeth and Franklin’s penchant for flying kites in a storm.

Sorry about the obnoxious voice-overs, but there’s no such thing as a silent adventure game playthrough on YouTube, it seems.
