The 8-Bit Olympics May Be More Fun Than The Real Games

Arcade-style Sochi is where it's at this winter.

There has been some amazing 8-bit treasure on the web this week, including (but not limited to) the 8-bit renderings of Breaking Bad, as well as Sesame Street Fighter--the self-explanatory latter is still making us laugh. To finish out the week strong in pixelated creativity, we present Flikli's "8-Bit Games: Winteractive Edition!" a sequel to the studio's London Games makeover in 2012.

Like the original, this animated short features a montage of winter sports--bobsledding, skiing, the works--with a built-in, interactive mini-quiz game. While Sochi has had a few amazing spectacles, like the Selfie Monument we can't stop geeking out over, the month-long event can get a little tiresome. Sometimes a quick burst of arcade-style fun is an easy replacement for the real thing.
