#13: Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!

Released In: 1987
Developer: Nintendo
Publisher: Nintendo

      Fight your way through the three circuits of the World Virtual Boxing Association, where you will face off against ethnic opponents with bizarre mannerisms. If you beat all comers, you will win yourself a dream match against vintage Mike Tyson. You know, back when his punches were his most intimidating feature.

Syd Lexia: I used to fucking hate Great Tiger and his goddam Tiger Punch... I thought the guy was impossible. Then I learned that sometimes you have to block instead of dodge. After that, he was a fucking joke. This game is a true classic, but it has one major flaw: Super Macho Man. No, I'm not talking about how his hair is gray in his profile picture but black in the game. I'm talking about his incredibly creepy man tits.

Rycona: A lot of my game timing skills were developed by this game. When I first played this game, I lost to Glass Joe constantly. After watching my Uncle Mike play, I picked up his heavy dodging tactics and soon developed my own method of dodge punching with straight up punch obliteration. But even now, Mike Tyson/Mr. Dream is still a bitch to beat.

greeneyedzeke: In hindsight, pressing Select really quickly to make Doc rub your shoulder faster seems kind of… odd. And Soda Popinski was a punk bitch.
