This is a miserable Mike Tyson thread so far. Blood, dammit.

glad I'm not the only one this game imprinted itself on so much.

That was pretty much perfect. You can see other video game recreations at Mega64, though I don't believe they did this one.

The part with the statue of liberty is the best... Also, is it sad that I could tell who he was fighting?

I love this. It makes me irrationally happy. I would love to have seen a TKO, though, just so I could have heard Mario say "EE AY OH."

Awesome beyond words. Is an exclamation point a suitable sign of respect?

Awesome. But perhaps not the best. But still awesome.

I could actually name the fighters in the first few seconds. I don't think I've actually played that game since about 1988 or 1989 or so. It undoubtably resides somewhere in my GFs huge stack of NES games.

Similar to the singular period, it means, this is so cool I am speechless.

Wow, [this is good].

How many fighters does it go through? I admire their thoroughness, but man, it's long...

Well, it's cool, but it ain't that cool.

Okay, now I want to play Punch Out again. I actually beat the arcade version, but could never beat Tyson on the NES. I want another shot!

Sniff. I'm so glad they're teaching highschool kids what's really important these days. Very cool.

My god, man, you read my mind!

I was also hoping for the Hippo!

There is a far superior video floating around that recreates Grand Theft Auto. It goes on for many minutes, following the main character as he runs into a phone booth, makes a call, jacks a car, flees cops, and gets in a shootout. Wish I could track it down -- it's hilarious.

Artifice: I saw that the GTA video on boingboing.

I think the first fight was against "Dom Flamenco" - at least he was the guy who you beat by just throwing alternating lefts and rigths until he went down.

sewshi, you just made my evening. I'm listening to this "live at drunkenes" set. I'm not sure why the "I WILL KILL YOU" stuff about 1/5 away from the end appeals to me so much, but it does. thank you.

And about the video - sometimes I wonder about this stuff. I was a tiny bit young to have played all of these things, and here I see some highschoolers paying homage to a game that came out when even I was barely out of diapers. I think if I were to show this to most of my friends, they wouldn't get it.

It's just sort of weird that everyone goes back to the oldschool like they do now. I'm definitely not complaining, though.
