Favorite Video Games of My Childhood: VI

Mike Tyson's Punchout

You knew this was coming: Mike Tyson's Punchout. I really didn't get into video games until the NES came out, and this was probably my favorite NES game of all time. If I still had a working NES, this is probably the game I would put in first. Pictured is the great King Hippo, probably the greatest demonstration/lesson of what this game was all about: dodge until you get your chance to inflict the most damage. You can't go in there all willy-nilly just flailing around like a drunk Cheesehead! No, you've got to figure out the fighter's weakness. I probably enjoyed fighting Soda Popinski the best.

My crowning achievement was beating Tyson in the first round. Do you remember?

Now everyone can beat Tyson (the real one, I mean). Glass Joe rules!
