Current video game characters battle old-school 8-bit rivals

Cosplayers used to make cool video about new games vs. old games

Yesterday I talked about the Atari Arcade site, which lets you play classic games on your browser - as part of that campaign (or inspired by it), YouTube channel freddiew has created a cool video in which "new" or current video game characters (such as Lara Croft, Master Chief, Nathan Drake and Altair) take on the 8-bit pixel "enemies" like the Centipede, Asteroids and Combat tanks.

Who will win this epic battle? Watch to find out.

This video reminds me of the Sony Playstation ad from a few years ago, in which all of the video game characters gather in a bar to praise "their player". Very cool stuff.
