"If you think about boxing and the 1980s, you think of names like Julio Caesar Chavez, Marvelous Marvin Hagler, Sugar Ray Leonard, and of course Mike Tyson. While Tyson later became synonymous with promising to eat children and trying to get through his impregnable defenses, he nevertheless lent his likeness to quite possibly the best boxing game ever made: Mike Tyson's Punch Out!!."

TO this day I still can't beat Mike Tyson.


Edit. Wait a minute, now that I look at the line up, I could get as far as King Hippo lol.

Great game, great write up.

Its defenitely true that if you were able to beat Tyson back in the day you got a lot of respect. Its a game that still challenges you even today if you play it and fight Tyson. That says a lot.

It is ingrained in my mind. It got to the point I beat Tyson so much that I had more trouble with Mr. Sandman. I loved that game!

Get this. I didn't memorize the code, but when I popped in the game to play for the first time in maybe 10 years, I could imput the code! No idea what the numbers were, but my fingers knew! How crazy is that?

This game is truly deservant of a HOF spot. I still play it till this day thanks to the NES emulator on my PDA.
