Watch Happy Gilmore reimagined as an 8-bit brawler

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

No one ever tried a video game adaptation of Adam Sandler's golf comedy Happy Gilmore, but if they did, what would it look like? YouTube's 8-Bit Cinema imagines something straight out of River City Ransom.

Yes, it includes beating up an alligator. And beating up the clown. And being beaten up by Bob Barker. There was a lot of beating in this flick, which is probably why a brawler was the most appropriate genre.

It's the work of CineFix, which has put out a series of well known Hollywood flicks adapted to an old-school 8-bit visual style. Past editions include Pulp Fiction and Inception.
