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?

Ok, that was just about the best Replay ever. That is one intense game!
Best Replay ever. Watching Dan cringe everytime he dodged was priceless!
Favorite replay ever!!!
Great replay. I actually have beaten Mike Tyson too :) I decided to revisit the game when I was a teenager.
Check this guys instructional videos out. Sadly he has not finished the series. I never used these techniques because youtube didn't exist when I beat Mike Tyson, but it's still a really cool video.
Where's Rocky Balboa when you need him?
Dan, why the hair cut? If you can grow hair you should, take it from a guy with a "shaved" head!
Anyway, this is a great replay.
Best replay ever!
Funnest one yet!!!!!!!!!!!
Game is still great after all these years. Thanks for replaying one of the best games of all time! As for replay roulette, god, how awful.
