Mike Tyson's Punch-Out - Beating Tyson!

Adam Schleichkorn Monday, March 17, 2008 ,
I was in to video games when I was a kid, but I was never a super nerd (like Dan Taft), so I never really "beat" that many of them. Mike Tyson's Punch-Out was one of the greatest Nintendo Games of all-time, and one of my personal favorites. The thing is though, that it was freakin hard as hell! I used to be able to get up to Super Macho Man, and he'd usually pummel me in the first round. After (probably) months of frustration, my father figured out how to beat him occasionally, which got us up to Tyson, literally only about 3 or 4 times. My dad was always nice enough to let me play Tyson, but of course, he would knock me out in one punch! (just like Robin Givens, oh!) So he gave it a shot once or twice, and we could never beat him. All we wanted was to see how the freakin game ended, but after months of hardships, we finally gave up. Again I wasn't a super nerd, so I was able to forgot about the anguish Tyson caused me for many years, until now. I stumbled across a super nerd's video on Youtube, of him beating Tyson in the first round, and for the first time in my life, the ending of the game! Not only does he use the cheat code to get to Tyson, but this kid makes it look like the easiest thing in the world to beat him, which just makes me furious! To top it off though, check out the ending...
