Retro Games Vs Modern Games, To The Death!

This is 8BITS. It's a stunning piece of animation - and I'm not making this up - personifying the struggle between the games of yesterday and the game's of today.

It's tradition versus industry. Persistence versus greed. And since this is a story, and not a documentary, you already know who comes out on top.

It runs just shy of seven minutes, but please. Watch the whole thing. It's worth every second.

    Great animation, even if it was hard to tell what was going on sometimes.

    I watched it and I'm sorry but... eh?

    Would have been better with non-original characters. The art direction for hte characters was pretty ugly in my opinion.

    I get it but at the same time- wtf was dat shit

    It's kind of ironic that it critiques modern games for being soulless but uses computer animation instead of a more traditional hand drawn style.

    Can't we all just play D.Kong? :P :)

    I wonder if Bobby Kotick is like that boss dude in his internal meetings...

    The fact that the outro song is from YMCK makes this video +amazing!

    Gratuitous nudity (as rare as it seems) actually made this worse.
    And yeah the art was not to my liking large heads small bodies - and blob like enemies wasn't so much clever as meh.

    OMG Cool!
