'Downton Abbey' SNES: Finally, Some Upstairs-Downstairs Operatics for the Home Console

Do you like retro video games? Do you like prolonged period melodrama between the ruling and servile classes of World War I-era England? Well, what a treat for you then: here's a video roughly simulating the surely-boring game that would have resulted had Downton Abbey aired during Super Nintendo's heyday, when even Home Improvement somehow became a platformer. Sadly, it's not as expansive and nuanced as The Wire RPG or SNES Breaking Bad, so you'll just have to imagine your own pixelated intro from Laura Linney.
