Game Over: The Apocalypse in "Pixels"

Atari videogame

If we're gonna have to go eventually, please make it be as fun as this. The short film Pixels envisions a world invaded by the planets of Atari and Nintendo.

The urban destruction as wrought by Donkey Kong and Pac-Man is entertaining enough, but the use of the pixel shape as a narrative element is downright brilliant. See if you can name all the games, and be sure to stick around for the closing credits.
