“Gatsby” the Videogame: Daisy Meets Mario Bros.
“The Great Gatsby,” the novel, starts with the narrator, Nick Carraway, recalling a piece of advice his father gave him when he was young. The beginning sets the tone for the rest of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s lyrical treatment of the American dream.
The Great Gatsby, the videogame, opens on Nick Carraway shooting waiters armed with trays of martinis, scooting past falling chandeliers in Jay Gatsby’s Long Island mansion and dodging around Roaring Twenties flappers. It gets weirder from there, continuing with Nick staring down a pair of eyes, maneuvering through a speakeasy and zooming past ghost soldiers on a beach.
