The Great Gatsby Game

Got some time to waste?  Are you of a literary bent? Here's a simple laugh for you...  Try the "Great Gatsby" game.  It's an old-school Nintendo style game I found listed on NPR's site.  In the game you are Nick Carraway searching for Gatsby in his mansion and on his grounds.  The eyes of Doctor T.J. Eckleburg greet you as you begin and eerily watch your progress.  You have to heartlessly destroy innumerable innocent butlers along the way, but there are lots of martinis to help numb any objections your guilty conscience might make and give you the impression that you actually can hide from "the EYES."

I guarantee it's an hour you'll never get back, but it's a silly sort of fun nevertheless.
