Classic Literature Meets a Not-So-Classic Medium

Get ready to practice the arts of martini mixing, gin bootlegging, and inordinate obsessing through Big Fish Games' video game adaptation of the 1925 classic The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Okay, you don't really get to practice any of those things. Mainly you just stare at a computer screen searching for poorly hidden objects (think Highlights) and completing simple word puzzles (Highlights again, I guess).

Creatively titled The Great Gatsby Game, the PC-operated release purportedly allows users to "launch themselves into the high-society, low-morality world of East and West Egg and wade neck-deep into all the excess and depravity of Gatsby, Daisy, Jordan, Tom…the whole gang!"

And all for only $6.99. A steal really, when you consider what excess and depravity normally go for.
