Titanic Reimagined As An NES Game

Even if you loved Titanic, you have to admit one thing: it wasn't enough like The Legend of Zelda. Well, that's no longer a problem thanks to this 8-bit reinterpretation of James Cameron's 1997 film.

The folks at CineFix have managed to condense Cameron's 210-minute movie into a four-minute video. And I think I speak for everyone when I say "this is better."

Check it out:

CineFix's video hits all of Titanic's highlights and sprinkles in some gamer humor. In Cameron's film, Jack and Rose ditch a stuffy, upper-crust party and end up dancing with the third-class passengers. CineFix's interpretation involves a Dance-Dance Revolution-style dance-off that includes a power-up maneuver.

Obviously, no Titanic parody would be complete without the steamy, backseat love scene, and this video is no different. Jack and Rose's sexy steerage shenanigans have been faithfully recreated, and they're every bit as sensual as the original.

I should probably throw a NSFW tag in the title.

I have to admit; I was surprised with just how heartwarming James Horner's bit-crushed soundtrack is. In fact, after watching the Titanic video, I found myself scouring the Internet for 8-bit interpretations of Horner's tunes, and they're not hard to find. So, if you get a hankering for some chippy James Horner music, click here and here and here.

If this is the first time you've seen a CineFix creation, your evening is about to take a unproductive turn. The YouTubers have been creating 8-bit renditions of television shows and movies for the last few years, and some of them are genuinely brilliant. I personally, enjoyed Scarface, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, and Se7en. But the channel is jam-packed with other recognizable franchises.

Also, I should probably mention that this week marks the 103rd anniversary of the Titanic's sinking. April 15th is National Titanic Remembrance Day, a holiday that I didn't know existed until I started researching this article. I'm not exactly sure if this video is an appropriate way to remember a tragic shipwreck, but since only a handful of people who were alive in 1912 are still breathing, I don't foresee many complains.

So, enjoy.
