Downton Abbey as an 8-bit Nintendo video game

If Nintendo teamed up with Masterpiece Theater, you'd get this game

If you're fans of the English drama "Downton Abbey" and old-school video games, then you're going to love this mash-up.


Break out your white gloves and knowledge of bouillon spoons, because it's time to play "Downton Abbey: The Video Game", for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Actually, it's just a parody video of what such a game would look like, but I have faith that someone out there might actually try and make such a game.

Although after what happened last night on the series, I'd probably add some more pathos to the game. Also, more Lady Edith.
