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?

uh, yeah, I beat Tyson many, many times
Oh, my god. Me and my friends always used to call Doc Carl Winslow, too. That's hilarious.
Also, Family Matters is just a spin-off of Die Hard, which is a spin off of this game. Think about it.
The camera was a great idea, too. Watching Dan spaz out made this.
hahaha this is hands down the funniest replay ever because of Amagon and Dan's reactions kill me everytime
Another fun replay, guys. Dan, you are soooo into this game, haha. Watching you on camera made it so much better. And then the NES shut off. >.< Oh my gosh, I can't believe you had him at one more hit and then he knocked you down. But hey, you got him once! And you just grimace watching everyone else the entire time.
Loved the ridiculous roulette. Punching small reptiles in the face looks awesome.
wow, you guys are pretty horrible at this game. lol
I love the Danmera (Dan Camera)
That was awesome!
Dan has become my new favorite GI editor after this replay. Not only was he the only one to survive to the 1:30 mark, he also knocked Tyson down, and flipped him off. :)
"how quickly can you get a camera?" is one of my favorite moments in replay history. watching Dan wiggle around in that chair kills me every time, and the short but sweet roulette could not be better. I love this episode.
