I had such a nerdgasm!
Super Mario, Ikaruga, Megaman, Metal slug Zelda, Pong, Canon, Outrun ahhhh it was so awesome, and I`m loving the cutscene animation is incredble. However, none of it was actually 8Bit graphics. The bit that was, was the 2 second Zelda clip. But I still enjoyed.
Damn... I guess he`s the real 8BitHero here D:

Also, I guess that 1000 character limit isn`t as accurate as I expected.

I figure the protagonist represents gaming, and appears as a stereotypical console gamer - an unshaven someone who spends a lot of time just wearing pants.
He`s trying to save the woman - who represents the older generations of computer gaming, presumably also his first love - from being consumed and/or destroyed by the newer 3D generations of games - the boss.

The main antagonist continually flickers between his 3d-animated self and his potential red/blue anaglyph 3D future-self.

"Do you remember 0 and 1?...your very mind...contained in a little piece of code" - Referring to the early days of AI, when NPCs were far simpler.

Easily one of the coolest styles of animation I have seen. Didn`t pick up on every game, but awesome nonetheless.

Entertaining! Weird and pointless perhaps, unless you `get` all those game references. And there`s a lot of them!
