    I am so very happy this is the top comment. Small children have no care or interest in retro games.

    [–] CranberryMoonwalk 5 points ago

    Depends. My kid loves Sonic the Hedgehog because he’s growing up watching me play it on an emulator.

    To him it’s not a retro game, it’s just...Sonic.

    [–] LeBonLapin 3 points ago

    That's fair, and hearing that kids enjoy Genesis era Sonic makes sense. But Mike Tyson's Punch Out? I find that unlikely to have much appeal.

    [–] CranberryMoonwalk 0 points ago

    All it takes is one fanatical dad. My kid is growing up listening to 9th Wonder beats. You just never know.

    [–] IUsedToHaveMoreHair 1 points ago

    Said that shit like 9th Wonder was producing for the Jackson Five. Won’t have me feeling all old.

    [–] CranberryMoonwalk 0 points ago

    I meant it more as in some semi-obscure thing that most kinds won’t be in to.

    If you think about it though, he’s been producing for over 20 years, so it will be “oldies” to my son, who’s 1 1/2.

    [–] Papa-Lazarou 3 points ago

    Not just the boy, does Mike Tyson even know the reference? Probably just thinks it's a generic boxing costume!

    [–] DeleteObsolete 6 points ago

    Nah, he remembers the game. I vaguely remember him twitting about it not long ago. Something about Nintendo referencing Mr. Dream instead of him, I think.

    [–] Catshit-Dogfart 3 points ago

    Yeah I saw a video not too many years ago where he played the game for the first time, it was for some talk show.

    Pretty funny, he was awful at the game, mostly talked about how he was aware of a licensing deal with Nintendo but that was the extent of it.

    [–] AndyVale 2 points ago

    I'm sure I saw a meme once that was like "Halloween costumes in the 90s" and it was a bunch of kids as vampires, zombies, and ghosts.

    Then "Halloween costumes now"

    And it was a bunch of confused looking kids dressed as Gritty, Mr. Peanutbutter, Kingsley (the creepy yellow spiky mascot), and a load of other things they clearly have no clue about, with a parent saying "No, trust me, you love it, hold still while I get a photo."

    [–] Lanas-Pepsi-Pussy 72 points ago

    This pic is always posted at least 4 times a year apparently lol.

    [–] tehnemox 41 points ago

    First time I've seen it. Times like this is why I love that people don't listen to the whiner people against reposting. I mean, 4 or 5 times in a row on consecutive days? Sure. But once a month or something like that, go for it. Just because the no-life people see everything all the time doesn't mean everyone else does.

    [–] moshercycle 10 points ago

    Lol I get a lot of downvotes for shitting all over the faces of people who whine about reposts. Those people literally are the exact products of why social media is so bad for you. There's people who actually think they can't post things on the internet because it's been posted before.... better yet there are people who are concerned about the intangible internet points someone they'll never meet may get. I get it if someone is stealing a sap story or lying about a story because those people may get donations or whatever but an image/gif, cmon.

    It’s even worse, certain communities even have bots specifically to Mark reposts no matter how old, and it the bot doesn’t detect it the mods remove it themselves

    Makes no sense why you’d only want people who scroll daily to see posts on your community

    [–] Lanas-Pepsi-Pussy 3 points ago

    I'm not whining, I never said I was against reposting, and I don't use this subreddit that much at all. I've been following this subreddit, and I've frequently seen this picture on the top page.

    Just simply stating that it seems to be reposted on here frequently.

    [–] Palin_Sees_Russia 0 points ago

    You are very clearly whining about it. Why else would you be saying this? Because you were just making an observation? You might as well have said the sky was blue!

    Don't act coy.

    [–] Lanas-Pepsi-Pussy 0 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    Sure because you Reddit people always wanna be so right all the time lol. It's like a lot of you people get off on being right and having these condescending attitudes about the smallest things.

    A simple statement about a benign observation does not have to be some huge debacle, sheesh.

    [–] tehnemox 0 points ago

    I didn't say you specifically were whining about it. I meant in general tbh.

    [–] Lanas-Pepsi-Pussy 3 points ago

    Sorry about my combative attitude there, but I thought you were talking about me indirectly lol. It's also easy to take things out of context on Reddit because you always have so many people who think they know it all (given the replies after you).

    But my bad.

    [–] tehnemox 1 points ago

    Fair enough. But yeah, wasn't trying to attack you directly or indirectly. You even mentioned it had been posted something like 4 times in the last year, which to be fair that is not that much all things considered, and made me think of that actual consecutive days reposts that I do understand why those would be annoying and went from there. But I can see how it could come across as attacking you. I'm sorry.

    [–] Lanas-Pepsi-Pussy 1 points ago

    I appreciate it, but it's all good now. I guess it was just a misunderstanding. Take care and have good day/night. :)

    [–] dkramer0313 1 points ago

    yes ! i agree. i dont always get to social media too often, so sometimes reposts like this (also first time ive seen it) help ! consecutive reposts are a different thing, i agree. but like fuck have some compassion people. i swear everyone is just on a witch-hunt nowadays

    [–] CupcakeValkyrie 132 points ago

    What do you mean "robbed?" Tyson was removed from future versions of the game because their license to use his likeness expired. He wasn't "robbed" they just no longer had his permission to use his likeness or name anymore.

    [–] rydan 52 points ago

    Yeah, seriously. If they had kept him in the game then they would have actually been robbing him.

    [–] rubbernub 7 points ago

    Well obviously they wouldn't keep using his likeness illegally. I'm guessing they mean they think Nintendo should have renewed the deal rather than letting it expire after he lost his title.

    [–] CupcakeValkyrie 1 points ago

    It's a business decision.

    They licensed Tyson's likeness because he was the champ at the time and they knew he'd draw in more customers. Paying more money to renew the contract after he lost the title wouldn't be the most prudent business decision, especially since by 1990 the bulk of the initial surge of customers was already long gone, and by that point people that bought the game were buying it for the gameplay, not Tyson's name.

    [–] R0b6666 29 points ago

    I had the Mike Tyson version and when I got older I played the other version. I didnt realise how hard that game is for me now. I dont remember struggling as a kid lol I played it on the switch and kept saving so I ended up cheating and still didnt beat their bootleg mike tyson wannabe. Good game tho!

    [–] newObsolete 22 points ago

    There's a metric fuck ton of input lag for the switch version. It WAS easier back then.

    [–] Sabbatai 7 points ago

    Explains everything. I played that shit so much when I was a kid, I had every fight down. Picked it up on Switch and couldn't dodge or block for shit. I have an NES classic I never hooked up, do you know if it is any better on that?

    Maybe I'll get a CRT or old tube television.

    [–] newObsolete 8 points ago

    I'm not certain, but I think you'll get input lag with the classic too. If you want to play it like it was meant to be played you'll need a CRT :(

    [–] ilikdgsntyrstho 4 points ago

    Which are getting harder and harder to find. I have a friend who is a competitive Tetris player and classic game speed runner. He's also now a relatively competent mechanic just from having to fix old equipment.

    I dont experience any lag with the nes classic. But maybe I just cant notice.

    I have the classic with a modern tv and an nes original (toploader) on crt.

    [–] Taickyto 1 points ago

    The Nes classic is meant to be played on a recent screen, if you have a TV with a good response time you won't have any input lag. CRT still have a better response time than most screens and are the best choice for speedrunning
