Catch Up With Stranger Things With This Retro Gaming Infused Recap Video

Netflix has posted a pretty handy recap video for Stranger Things, but what sets it apart from other recap videos is that it uses old school video game tropes to make it even more awesome.

Now this isn’t a full on 8-bit remake of the show’s big moments, rather it uses the actual footage from the show’s first season with retro gaming graphics imposed over it. It essentially turns the major moments of Stranger Things into a live action RPG if it were created in the mid-80’s.

If you need a refresher on the show’s plot points from its first season, head on up above to check out a unique recap video for it. Stranger Things season 2 is set to kick off on Netflix on October 27, 2017.
