The lights are on
It sounds absurd that a boxing game is considered one of the all-time greatest NES games considering its competition on the system, but Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! deserves its place in gaming history. While other boxing titles would allow you to mash buttons until your opponent fell to the canvas, Punch-Out required immaculate timing and memorization skills. In this manner, it was almost like a series of difficult boss fights that led up to the most difficult of all...Iron Mike.
Watch below as Andrew Reiner, Bryan Vore, Joe Juba, and myself take Little Mac up the ranks towards the Baddest Man on the Planet. How will we fare against the legend?

Of course I have beaten Iron Mike. I took about 100 tries as a kid, but eventually it happened. The key was to leave just a sliver of health for him at the end of round 1. Then TKO in round 2...
hahaha Dan rage quit and shaved off his hair, I'd like to believe in that order
This is for sure in my top 5 NES and i have never beaten tyson, he always lays the smack down on me. I only got to see the end once when a friend of mine took him down, it was not me but it was still sweet to see him go down.

this episode was histerical.
This is such a tense game!lol and to this day im still stuck a Soda Popinski =/
And if it makes you feel any better Dan, I always tapped the select button =D
