Ninth Inning of World Series Game 7 Re-Enacted with NES RBI Baseball (Video)
Despite going the full seven games, on the whole the 2014 World Series between the Royals and Giants wasn’t that exciting. Of the first six games, five weren’t close, and four were full-fledged blowouts.
That said, Game 7 was pretty awesome. The Giants took a 3-2 lead into the bottom of the ninth with the indomitable Madison Bumgarner on the mound going for a ridiculous five-inning save. Then, with two outs, Kansas City’s Alex Gordon hit a single that Gregor Blanco misplayed and turned into a triple. And suddenly the trying run was on third base.
The stadium was raging. The tension was palpable. It was pure, unadulterated drama. And now you can relive it all in glorious eight bit graphics.
Yes, that’s right. Somebody recreated the whole thing with the Nintendo Entertainment System classic RBI Baseball and set it to the audio from the Giants’ KNBR radio feed. And it is awesome.
So without further ado, here’s the ninth inning of World Series Game 7 re-enacted with an old-school video game:
Almost as fun as watching the real thing, wasn’t it?
