See The Hunger Games and a bunch of other movies reimagined as 8-bit videogames

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire came out this past weekend to positive reviews and massive box office success.  To catch people up on the story before it came out, YouTube mainstay Cinefix reimagined the original Hunger Games movie as a top-down Zelda-style action game, complete with bow-and-arrow sharpshooting, tinny soundtrack, and communication via text box.  Watch it below. 

The filmmaker behind the 8-bit Hunger Games, David Dutton, has made a whole host of 8-bit film adaptations, including a side-scrolling beat-em-up version of Thor, a Japanese RPG riff on Anchorman, and a LucasArts-y adventure game take on The Shining.  Check out the complete list here.
