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?

Best replay ever.
From the look on Dans face,its probably best that he cut his hair before that fight.
ive never beat tyson
Argh, it stops right after the second level of Amagon. The Mike Tyson one was amazing. This was the best replay, by far. Now I finally know what Dan looks like! I have to say, it was intense. When Dan died when he was one hit away from Tyson, and leaned back in my chair so rapidly that the ear plugs came flying out. After you finally got him, I actually cheered for you. Then Tyson got his revenge and went rage on you. You should do the video thing more often.
Also, does it feel like it's been a while since the last replay?
Was Dan about to cry when he reset the game?
Dan probably died a little after knocking him down
Hey! Dan got a haircut!
I beat Tyson back in 1988. I first TKO'd him, then was able to KO him. My roommate was at work and didn't believe me when he got home, so I did it again so he could see it.
Hahaha poor Dan geting all tense XD
That was pretty epic when you pulled off the camera easter egg hit hahaha
Probably one of the best Replays haha, good try Dan.
