The awesome folk over at CineFix on YouTube created a video showcasing what The Shining may have looked like if it were given a NES version. Taking serious nods from Manic Mansion this faux game gives the movie a pretty good treatment. Many of the iconic scenes such as the tricycle scene are recreated here, but the 8-bit translation loses much of the haunting effect. That said, I wonder how well a game like this would have done being a recreation of the movie itself?

I didn't watch the video, but instantly thought of the awesome Maniac Mansion
