Let me be clear about one thing… I have never beaten Mike Tyson’s Punch-out. I’ve been playing this game literally as long as I’ve been alive and I have never been able to beat it. It is the only game that I can remember that was the perfect mix of “too difficult to beat” but also fun enough to keep trying. Hell! It’s fun enough for me to try for 25+ years.
What I learned from this game, or should I say continue to learn from it, is that it doesn’t matter how long it takes… you will accomplish your goals if you just stick with it. Because, ultimately, it who really cares as you’re at least enjoying yourself?
