Awesome video, Mike! Keep up the good work!
April 9, 2013 at 3:21 pm
Almost first 😛 good job Mike!
May 18, 2013 at 6:34 pm
Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job Ive had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this – 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringin home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, http://qr.net/Jobs100
April 9, 2013 at 3:47 pm
To be honest I only knew like 10 of these, since my knowledge of video games is somewhat truncated due to my unfortunately late year of birth.
April 9, 2013 at 3:49 pm
What was the last game?
April 9, 2013 at 4:20 pm
Bionic Commando…I still remember the first time I saw that face explode!
April 10, 2013 at 1:47 am
Ah yes, what did they call him? Master D? AKA Hitler?
April 9, 2013 at 4:14 pm
Playing that Little Nemo game is one of my earliest memories. Also, wicked “Curse of the Demon” poster! That’s one my favorite horror movies, so underrated.
Mike I really appreciate the constant work you and the team put into these great videos. It drives my girlfriend mad but she knows the score!
All the best
Love from England.
April 9, 2013 at 4:21 pm
Can’t recognize many of them though good idea including some games reviewed by AVGN including Milon’s Secret Castle and Kid Kool.
That last one with Hitler’s face exploding is shockingly cool!
April 11, 2013 at 6:38 pm
One of the Bionic Commandos, I think.
April 9, 2013 at 4:27 pm
Well, I got about 1/3 of them for sure.
April 9, 2013 at 4:28 pm
No way in hell you beat Tyson. Video that shit and prove it.
April 9, 2013 at 4:50 pm
Was going to say that defeating Tyson would have been by far the most impressive accomplishment of this review, but now concur that such a neigh-impossible achievement requires its own video…
April 9, 2013 at 9:06 pm
Meh, beating Mike Tyson isn’t that hard. Especially nowadays. If you have a bat. And some friends.
April 12, 2013 at 11:04 pm
Beating Tyson is super easy. You just have to know that for the first 90 seconds how to dodge. He winks at you and you know which way to go. If you want practice use the legendary code 007 373 5963 to go straight to him. I have never defeated Super Macho Man. I always handed the controller over to someone else and said, smoke him, and I’ll defeat Tyson.
April 9, 2013 at 11:51 pm
its possible just don’t get hit 😉
April 10, 2013 at 9:30 am
it’s not impossible to beat tyson! just watch some speedruns..
April 9, 2013 at 4:56 pm
I thought I was a good video game nerd… I have clearly been slacking.
Good job Mike ^.^
April 9, 2013 at 5:00 pm
Excellent work Mike. Another great vid.
April 9, 2013 at 5:02 pm

link to the past
April 10, 2013 at 11:08 am
My bad, i did not play those yet
April 9, 2013 at 11:46 pm
and its Kirby’s adventure not Kirby adventures
April 9, 2013 at 5:21 pm
Were we supposed to find out the name of the games? Because I found that they all include either an explosion of some sort, fire, or falling down
April 9, 2013 at 5:28 pm
The ones that hit closest to me (due to childhood frustration): Little Nemo, Kid Icarus, Conquest of the Crystal palace. Though Nemo would probably be the least frustrating of the 3.
April 9, 2013 at 5:37 pm
Good Job:D now i wanna finish one of my nes games too, most of the times i just play half through them, especially when there is no save option. I have only beaten shorter games like mario 1, contra, ducktales and so on;)I think I’m going to start with my mother 1 repro:D
April 9, 2013 at 6:26 pm
I had no idea Hitler was in an NES game…
April 10, 2013 at 1:07 am
Never beat Bionic Commando eh? haha.
April 9, 2013 at 6:43 pm
I must’ve beaten #12 & #16 on several occasions, now I can’t rem their titles!
Please someone help!
April 9, 2013 at 6:48 pm
OK, I had to go look @ my collection #16 – Trojan.
Now to find #12.
April 9, 2013 at 6:51 pm
Sorry for multiple posts, #12 – Kid Niki: Radical Ninja
April 9, 2013 at 7:47 pm
Well, I guessed about half of them, but wow. I hope this is not all of them that you played since I couldn’t find Super Mario Bros. 2 here, and only Mega Man game. Yet there was Transformers… I can’t believe both James and you put yourself through that torture (yes, I played it too).
April 9, 2013 at 7:55 pm
I’ve beaten many other NES games. I figured 50 was enough to try and guess.
Okay then, thanks for clearing it up 🙂
April 9, 2013 at 8:18 pm
Oh! Congrats on beating Rainbow Islands! I’ve been meaning to give that one another go. My biggest NES achievements was beating TMNT, and Double Dragon 3. No cheats of course
April 9, 2013 at 8:26 pm
what no faxanadu ??? for shame.. you must beat that
April 17, 2013 at 12:53 pm
god… the noise that was made when you were talkigto people… it’s like their ever blinking eyelids were actually making the noise
April 9, 2013 at 9:42 pm
Is there a limit to the size of the comment one can leave? I jut typed out my list, but it seems to have disappeared. You might want to mention this to other posters to save them some time.
April 9, 2013 at 10:17 pm
I recognized some of the games on the list, makes me want to break out the NES and beat all the games I have in the collection.
April 9, 2013 at 10:20 pm
Hydlide Roger Rabbit Jaws=
April 9, 2013 at 11:31 pm
I’ve been waiting to see the game “Rockin Cats” make an appearance on this website for so long now. That was very exciting to see. I was debating emailing you guys to tell you about it because judging from the title you’d never expect it to be a great game. **** YES for it finally being on a video
April 9, 2013 at 11:49 pm
Mike does an awesome job. Great video.
April 10, 2013 at 1:32 am
Micheal ME TOOO DUDE! lol I remember playing it wheni was like 9 or 10 and got to the end and was like ITS HITLER!!!!!
when his face exploded my jaw dropped BEST GAME ENDING EVER
April 10, 2013 at 1:33 am
It’s safe to say that I have my disagreements with anybody. And I was about to shit a brick when I almost didn’t see Bionic Commando make your list. Thanks for saving the best NES ending for last. Exploding Hitler’s head can’t be topped. And if you did…well…since I’m a coward, I’d probably curl up in my sock drawer and cry for days. But I’d let your guilt tear you up inside, we passive aggressives can be bastards too, as Kevin MacDonald has said. Good vid.
April 10, 2013 at 1:51 am
Hitler’s head exploding was as out of place as Picard & Riker exploding that dude’s melon on TNG and definitely left an impression on this young man! But for sheer skills I have to respect anyone beating a Ninja Gaiden.
April 10, 2013 at 2:39 am
Great video, man! I only missed 8, but some of the games are easy to guess just by looking at the main character.
April 10, 2013 at 2:51 am
Great work Mike! Keep up with it!
(I really like that titlecard before playing the video lol)
April 10, 2013 at 3:20 am
I only could come up with 12. I’m here since the SNES so i don’t know very much of NES but some deaths were really cool.
April 10, 2013 at 3:36 am
I was a sega guy back in the day and even then I only had a few games (was/am more of a pc gamer) so a lot of these I had a small idea what they were but I couldn’t give an exact game or anything.
April 10, 2013 at 3:38 am
Then again the famous ones I did know, just not enough to give a good list 😀
April 10, 2013 at 3:42 am
This was really cool Mike. It kept throwing me off when games I didn’t recognize came up. I like the obscure stuff like Fist of the North Star and Adventures of Tom Sawyer.
April 10, 2013 at 4:33 am
what game is number 43?
April 11, 2013 at 3:16 am
DETHEW #43 is splatterhouse. The game was only released on the famicom but there are translated nes reproductions out there.
April 10, 2013 at 6:18 am
Hell yeah Mike! My personal favorite one is Street Fighter 2010. You all know what I mean: the final boss who looks like a big, blistering ballsack that swallowed Grimace. Muhaha!
April 10, 2013 at 6:37 am
That was a great trip down memory lane. Knew probably 2/3rds of the games and beat half of those. You said 50 was enough to guess but please do another set of 50 in the future. Great Job!
April 10, 2013 at 6:59 am
And now we need Genesis vid.
April 10, 2013 at 7:05 am
Wait…was that Hitler in that last one??
April 10, 2013 at 8:22 am
Gezz Mike?!? how long did all end boss took?
April 10, 2013 at 9:07 am
I’m not trolling but this video is kind of a spoilerfest. There are nes games I want to play and not know what the end is going to be. Obviously I’ll use some intelligence and not watch it…
April 10, 2013 at 11:16 am
Good for you for still wanna play and beat NES games 20+ year after their release (Y)
April 14, 2013 at 11:55 pm
What is even the point of this comment? You know it’s full of spoilers and you know not to watch it. So once again was there any reason to even comment?
April 10, 2013 at 10:06 am
I can name about half of them.
April 10, 2013 at 10:56 am
Awesome video Mike!! Keep em coming! 🙂
April 10, 2013 at 11:05 am
boss 48 WTF?!! he’s got cock ‘n balls on his forehead! Does that make him a pretentious dickhead?
April 10, 2013 at 3:49 pm

April 19, 2013 at 10:05 pm
dasfonzie number 17 is the guardian legend
April 10, 2013 at 6:59 pm
Mike’s the man.
NES is getting older and older…make sure you’re keeping up with great vids like these to remind everyone of the good old days of gaming! 🙂
April 10, 2013 at 7:30 pm
Thanks for the fun triva Mike.
I’m pretty sure i got them all 50.
But correct me if i’m wrong.
April 10, 2013 at 8:08 pm
#14 is not the real final boss though
April 10, 2013 at 8:12 pm
Is #1 Jackal? Random, but I think I remember it…
April 10, 2013 at 8:44 pm
I knew about 30 of these… but for the life of me I cannot remember what game 35 was! I used to rent this one from the video store all the time when I was kid but I can’t remember what it is called.
Please can anyone tell me what 35 is?
April 11, 2013 at 3:05 am
MAPLE_SHAFT #35 is kid kool.You can see all the answers in my video i posted.AVGN reviewed this game also.
April 10, 2013 at 9:18 pm
I did pretty good got 39 on my first runthrough
April 10, 2013 at 10:14 pm
Knew about 25-28 of them (3 im unsure)
Ninja Gaiden 1-2 were really my nemesis when I was younger.
Then Kileak the DNA imperative on the PS1 got that title.
Still playing Monster Hunter series and Demon Soul/Dark Soul when I want a challenge 😀
April 11, 2013 at 12:41 am
yep, I beat Bionic Commando too. That was a hard one. Lone Ranger was hard too
April 11, 2013 at 1:36 am
Wow, I grew up with the NES and I knew less than half of these.
April 11, 2013 at 2:26 am
April 11, 2013 at 6:45 am
Didn’t know many of these, but it was great to see Rockin’ Kats in there! Played that one to shreds as a kid.
April 11, 2013 at 1:53 pm
Mike is not fucking around holy shit!
April 11, 2013 at 7:54 pm
I got maybe 15-20 of these. I can’t believe you beat Mylon’s Secret Castle; I got to that boss and that level is freaking hard. I had my game console get knocked over at that point, and that meant playing all the way through the game again. Same kudos with Werewolf and the original Castlevania. Games with no saves and password systems are hard, hard, hard to beat, especially super long puzzle sort of games like Mylon. Awesome job bro!
April 11, 2013 at 10:22 pm
No Bubble Bobble? Are you kidding me? Have you seen that Boss? I can barely do it now, with help!
April 11, 2013 at 11:15 pm
Wow mike I’m impressed I didn’t know you we’re so good at games
April 12, 2013 at 3:55 am
Hey Mike, nice work man…you are giving this site a fresh approach..
Oh and what is the name of the game number 42 (4:29)? A sauropod as last boss on a NES (damn..)…it’s the only game I have really no idea what it is
April 12, 2013 at 4:26 am
DRIES #42 is tom sawyer
April 12, 2013 at 11:57 am
Cool vid. So, whatever happened to Mike’s Game Glitches?
April 12, 2013 at 12:12 pm
Good work if you can get it.
April 13, 2013 at 3:36 am
Why there are no TMNT games? I’ve expected to see super schredder from TMNT 3
April 13, 2013 at 12:38 pm
I can’t believe some of the games beaten here, Mike Tyson’s Punch Out, Batman. Those games alone were worthy enough to drive me insane as a kid. Great video Mike!
April 13, 2013 at 1:22 pm
Someone, Please, What game is that as #6…I’ve been trying to remember since the age of 5 that title. I need to track it down and play it again. Cheers !
April 14, 2013 at 3:45 pm
hourofthewayne #6 is metal storm
Chttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EWgdbYBt1wheck out my youtube video for the other answers.
April 14, 2013 at 12:48 pm
I got 40/50. Not bad.
April 14, 2013 at 2:45 pm
To be honest Mike I kinda thought you were a hack in the early days ….. but in the last year I have grown to love your videos and they brighten my day when I see an update appreciate all the hard work you do
April 14, 2013 at 4:22 pm
April 16, 2013 at 5:29 pm
My God! Tarantino has used this final NES scene HAHAHAHAHAHA.
April 17, 2013 at 12:26 pm
can someone please say the name of #17? it was one of myfavorite games growing up. it was like half gradius/flying and half zelda esque adventure with guns and such if im remembering correctly.
April 17, 2013 at 9:28 pm
I second this request. I’ve been trying to find this game for ages now. Can’t figure it out.
April 18, 2013 at 6:59 am
#17 the guardian legend
April 21, 2013 at 2:48 pm
play it right here http://nintendo8.com/game/782/guardian_legend,_the/
April 18, 2013 at 1:02 am
Honestly i think we need allot more Angry video game Nerd!!!!! Not this crap i want swearing i love this idea and i want you guys to do well! Please let all of us fans know when the next AVGN will be out please, sorry Mike i just wanna be heard as you.
April 21, 2013 at 4:32 pm
Mike! Have you STILL not beat the original Ninja Gaiden? Or did you just not put it here? I remember when I finally beat the first one, I actually thought the second was too easy. The third is just impossible though (but mainly because you have only 5 continues).
April 22, 2013 at 4:58 pm
Good stuff. How the fuck did you beat Karate Kid?!
