    One of my favorite games of all time! The play controls on this thing are damn near impossible to get perfect. I didn’t get it until after having bought and played NES Open, which is far superior and, I think, one of the first Mario-themed sports games.

    The Darth Vader course is totally Madame Trashheap from Fraggle Rock … or Pizza the Hut …

    once again , cool video as always. it’s fun to see you imagining what the stages looks like. I always find those kind of videos you guys do funny because it allows you to express your imagination in many creative ways. you both should attempt to try doing improve. I’m also sure that an Akroid is also a golf fan. I personally think they should make a game called Shao Kahn’s Car Wash , or at least a funny fan made short. I never found golf games fun. hell , even putt putt golf to me was extremely boaring. I always find myself playing the arcades inside instead. I also think it would be finny if both David warner and Alan Rickman were in a movie together.

    honestly , if I were to make a golf game , I would make Al Bundy’s Golf.

    also , course 17 looks like Squidwards Easter Island Head House. & course 18 looks like a board game piece from the game of Life.

    finally , the only way this would look funny (IF you guys “were” hypathetically on drugs) is if you both were playing this game while on PCP. again , hypathetically.

    • lemonman

      December 31, 2012 at 1:45 am

      OOOH! Al Bundy’s Golf! I can see the opening now, *cue “Bad to the Bone” music*, montage of Al gearing up for the game, topping it off with a piss-poor audio recording of him saying, “Let’s Golf”.

      • LordJason1986

        December 31, 2012 at 1:53 am

        hah. that would be funny. I can also see that the sound effects for peggy would be the most annoying thing you would hear in the game. that would be a great mini game in itself. it would be a dream sequence kind of mini game with al bundy trying to hit peggy with a golf club.

        lewis black in one of his comedy albums mentions that the 2 kinds of people that are the fullest in anticipation are gamblers and golfers. “I am a golfer , which is a scottish word , and it means…asshole.”

        also , he also mentions that the following thing is mostly true to all golfers. you can take the most beautiful forest imaginable , and the first thing you hear in a golfers head is always the same : “if I had a chainsaw , that tree would be down”.

        all hell , lets play Chuck Norris’s Punch Out instead. or how about Wayne Knight’s work out.

    • January 2, 2013 at 4:29 pm

      Haha I though you were talking about Ted Bundy for just a second!

      • LordJason1986

        January 2, 2013 at 8:29 pm

        nah. just al bundy. although Ted Bundy in a video game would just be killing time…and the other players.

    Great new layout James!

  • LordJason1986

    December 31, 2012 at 1:59 am

    how about Gary Busey’s Baseball?

        January 2, 2013 at 8:27 pm

        XD that’s funny.

        I’ve got a few more.

        Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Football…
        Vanilla Ice’s Hockey…
        Alan Rcikman’s Boxing…
        Gilbert Gottfried’s Horse Racing…
        Patrick Stewart’s Super Go Cart…
        Kevin Bacon’s Iron Chef Challenge..

    Sound has to be louder!

    • Doogrisa

      Turn up the volume or get headphones. Headphones are good if you use a laptop.

  • December 31, 2012 at 2:50 am

    great video

  • fattoler

    Course 8 is the UK.

  • Joshua Adams

    December 31, 2012 at 3:17 am

    Have been watching for years. This video made me sign up to comment. I love NES Golf. Me and my buddy played this one hole summer and have played it since. Even created a drinking game for NES Golf. The chip in noise is the best in this game. Was cool that the Wii Sports Golf game used the first 9 holes of this. Bill Murray Golf would be cool. Hole 11 always reminded me of E.T.

  • Ace

    December 31, 2012 at 3:22 am

    Alice Cooper Golf would be the best game ever created…

  • Benobot99

    December 31, 2012 at 3:32 am

    It’s fun to watch you two goofin’ around. Maybe next time have Kyle and Kevin too, haha, just a thought.

  • December 31, 2012 at 4:08 am

    I like the layout man, good work, videos play more smoothly now too. On the topic of not being sure if certain games have mario or just a guy that looks like him, you should do a video on reoccurring sprites. Konami reused a ton if sprites. Like the guy in double dragon is apparently also in World Cup soccer and dodgeball, etc.

  • shplog

    December 31, 2012 at 4:36 am

    Great video, how high were you??

  • December 31, 2012 at 4:53 am

    Such a fun video.

  • adam.russo11

    December 31, 2012 at 5:03 am

    Did anyone else notice that the courses are the same ones from Wii Golf?

    • Cyberxion

    Not me, but it’s already been done.

  • FrancisHatesYou

    December 31, 2012 at 5:39 am

    9:00 is definitely an upside down man kissing a miniature abominable snowman on a rock Spiderman-style. …And 9:52 is E.T. in the fetal position.

  • December 31, 2012 at 5:48 am

    I haven’t played the Golf game since I was a kid. “Link’s Boomerang” course is totally Crocomire’s head from Super Metroid.

    Lovin’ the new site guys, the logo looks great too.

  • December 31, 2012 at 6:30 am

    Ah man you guys have good weed πŸ˜›

  • BrandeX

    December 31, 2012 at 7:09 am

    “new site” is pretty much just old site with a new theme installed. No forum either for discussions, can only talk i a video comment. boo.

  • BrandeX

    December 31, 2012 at 7:12 am

    “I don’t know the controls or how to play that much.”

    Er Mike, it plays exactly like every single golf game. Ever.

  • Peter449

    December 31, 2012 at 7:42 am

    Very cool episode! πŸ˜€
    And I loved the Bill Murray references. :p

  • executive333

    December 31, 2012 at 8:42 am

    Hey James, loving the new website and happy to be the first comment of 2013! Happy New Year!

  • executive333

    December 31, 2012 at 8:43 am

    ok maybe not the first then, woops hahaha

  • December 31, 2012 at 9:25 am

    Nice new design, James! The site is going running really fast!

  • smagyarown

    December 31, 2012 at 9:29 am

    Love the new website layout, nice and clean. But man, are those Blip videos laggy, whether HD on or off.

    • smagyarown

      December 31, 2012 at 9:34 am

      Correction: full-screen, they run fine. windowed mode is laggy.

  • December 31, 2012 at 10:15 am

    I like these videos because they help take my mind off things!

  • Lukas Sprehn

    December 31, 2012 at 10:17 am

    I once saw a cloud shaped like a sleeping lady with a hat on its head. Others saw the same too! πŸ˜€

  • Stefanoragnopazzo

    December 31, 2012 at 11:25 am

    Hudson Soft is known for using shapes from the real world in their games, sometimes they hide them well so who knows how many of them are true. You two sure can came up with some great ideas. ahahahaha
    PS: Great layout, very professional and easy to navigate.

  • hammerhorrortexas

    December 31, 2012 at 11:44 am

  • nostalgiavhs

    December 31, 2012 at 12:32 pm

    Funny video. I was definitely seeing a lot of shapes that looked like my green turds. As for the new site design, good job. I like the newer logo, looks more sleek and professional. There are still a few issues. For example on the front page the featured video is placed too far to the right and is overlapping with the advertisement on the side. Other than that, good job.

  • December 31, 2012 at 12:57 pm

    HA! Bill Murray golf, I would so buy that.

  • December 31, 2012 at 1:16 pm

    Awsome vid as usual guys. This game is hard!
    I love how it turned into your guys depictions of the shape of each course. I also tried to visualize each one into something, some harder than others.
    Alice Coopers Golf sounds like a pretty funny combo, hahaha.
    Loved the Casey Jones clip at the end πŸ™‚

  • December 31, 2012 at 1:19 pm

    Love the new version of Cinemassacre! And great video!

  • December 31, 2012 at 1:39 pm

    Just noticed, that many of the holes in this game are recreated in Wii Sports golf

  • Venkman

    December 31, 2012 at 2:08 pm

    fun stuff, i have 6 or 7 copies of golf….dont know why….
    Love the new site layout, slick shoes sir.

    December 31, 2012 at 3:02 pm

    I love those old golf games. I used to play one on my computer back when windows 95 was the new thing. Cool video guys, and I must say you have some very big imaginations. The only one I saw was the human head and bust

  • Blair Bradley

    December 31, 2012 at 3:02 pm

    the 18 th hole kinda looks like earth worm jim!

  • mgarcia

    December 31, 2012 at 3:17 pm

    Love the new layout!

    • LordJason1986

      January 1, 2013 at 1:23 am

      I do too. I also think the new logo is well done. however , does anyone else think that the old site and the new site kept the same shade of grey in the background? why do so many websites now a days use grey backgrounds? maybe one day we can see the Cinemassacre logo have blood dripping from it. maybe he can create an actual camera chainsaw as a prop. the film would be called James Camerasaw Cinemassacre.

  • jdshald

    December 31, 2012 at 3:18 pm

    neat video. didn’t expect a video about Golf on nes to be a what does it look like game. btw the new cinemassacre logo is awesome.

  • Douglas McGregor

    December 31, 2012 at 3:23 pm

    Ah, love the new site! Fresh look, and a sleek overall design. Always great to see another video up. Great work guys!

  • December 31, 2012 at 3:38 pm

    You guys are awesome, but not very good at golf. That’s rather amusing.

  • Dylan Kraiss

    December 31, 2012 at 5:43 pm

    Oh yeah… hoagies. Like, that’s normal. HAHAHA love your videos!

  • thejam216

    December 31, 2012 at 5:48 pm

    haha it’s great that you guys ended up focusing more on the shapes of the courses than the actual gameplay, and that it’s actually interesting enough to watch the whole time :P.

  • Iron65

    December 31, 2012 at 6:01 pm

    lol You are not safe on this one because you truly look you are on drugs! jajaja… You know something? Most of comedians, web artists and vignettes creators must learn from many many experience to have great imagination and have creative and original creations! beacuse there is some lack of it nowadays ! You know like Mike and james they are full living libraries

    It just occurred to me that the golf levels in Wii Sports are based directly off of the NES Golf levels.

    This is what this video was all about:

    PAREIDOLIA: a psychological phenomenon involving vague and random stimulus (often an image or a sound) being perceived as significant. Like seeing the “man in the moon” or images in the clouds.

    I’ve been watching your videos since 2009 but had not commented until today. Just wanted to wish you a happy new year and say that I like the improved layout for the site.

    Looking forward to the AVGN movie.

    Take care.

    January 2, 2013 at 12:20 pm

    I always used to think that was Mario (On the box) too,in fact I still do.Those sound effects,ha,so awesome…to me It sounds like something out of a classic 50s Sci-Fi tv show or something, when a space ship comes to land or some sort of alien makes it’s way down to Earth.

    March 15, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    Cool video. What a blast from the past- I forgot about this game. I used to play it with my dad too. And I also see those weird imagined images. I see them all the time, not just in this game. In course 4 I can’t stop seeing the silhouette of a man’s leg and shoe upside down.

  • Braleven Braleven

    Holy fuck, my eyes widened when Mike saw Bart Simpson in that one field. I saw him too, and for some odd reason… It wasn’t the same way Mike saw it. Like, I saw Bart in that image but I can’t even point it out now. Something about Bart just popped into my head when I saw that and I have no idea what the fuck it was haha.

    • Smexch

      May 21, 2013 at 3:25 pm

      I saw that too! Though, different from what Mike said. I saw his face in the upper right side green bit, just his head

    When I was 9, I got the NES and a bunch of games. This was one of em. A few weeks later, on New Years, after the ball dropped, my father played a full game of Nintendo Golf with me on my NES. Its the only time he made that video game connection with me. He never showed the slightest interest in games after that. Near 30 years later, its one of my favorite memories.

  • September 14, 2013 at 10:46 am
