On this past weekend's show we did a story about the new Dante's Inferno video game. Probably the most fun we had all week was thinking of other video games based on great works of literature. We came up with:

Don Quixote Kong
A Hundred Years of Solitaire
Ernest Hemingway's Pac Man and the Sea
War and Peace, But Mostly War
Super Karamazov Brothers
A Tale of Sim Cities
Grand Theft Odyssey
Pride and Extreme Prejudice
Love in the Time of Tetris
Huckleberry Metroid
