Does It Hold Up: Double Dragon

Oprainfall writes: "Double Dragon is a beat ‘em up that was released in the arcades in 1987. It was ported several times over, including to the NES. However, if you know much about this game, you know that the NES port has several differences over the original arcade game – including but not limited to the final boss. But I know a number of you don’t really care about comparisons between revisions and ports and stuff like that so I’ll skip.

So, why do we all remember this game? Because some whiny little kid who wanted to go to California to see the dinosaurs from Peewee’s Big Adventure got 50,000. And we all wanted to beat that score so we can say we were better than him." (Double dragon, Retro)
