Hotline Miami is one of the most vicious, violent games in recent memory. This video by PulpitPower explores what would happen if we put Hotline Miami's savage protagonist in some old-school games (and a couple of newer ones, too!) The results are about as horrifying as you'd expect.

The worst part is, watching this, you think to yourself—hey, sure he's bashing Link's head in. But, I bet it would feel good to play!

Damn the ways you've made us all complicit, Hotline Miami. Damn the ways.
