- Debut: 1984
You likely know of the Punch-Out game series, but probably mostly the Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out version. However, this was an entire franchise that was massive in the 1980s and even the 1990s. The original Punch-Out was released in arcades by 1984 and became an instant “hit” in arcades across the United States. That led to the development of others, including the Mike Tyson version. Due to its massive popularity, Nintendo then added it to the Super Nintendo console along with a sequel in the mid-1990s. However, the original Punch-Out as well as the Mike Tyson version remained in arcades throughout the 1990s. Leading it to become one of the best arcade games of all time.
