On December 22nd, 1989 the Batman video game was released on the NES. This was the game for one of the greatest movie going experiences of the 80s. Think about how plain the first Batman's cover was and yet, it's complete and total perfection.
Somehow Tiny Toons has always been able to produce a good game from the NES to the SNES and even the GameBoy in between. This title from December 20th, 1991 started the craze did not let it end there. Although this is all about my NES games; I must say Buster Busts Loose for the SNES is top 10 for the system.
Superman gets a bad wrap because he's super powerful and a nice guy so everyone thinks he's cheesy and lame. The truth is he's awesome but if you want to hate on him for anything it should be for his video game titles. The original for the NES came out on the 22nd of December in 1987 but I need to give it away a little early.
Can you imagine a world without Mega Man? Don't even try to. Thankfully December 18th, 1987 existed and the start to one of the greatest video game franchises was born.
I told you; it's a weird month so let's bring out a game that is only one day early and one that many of you think is the bee's knees.
Everything about this December 16th, 1989 title screams fun. The commercial has all the nickelodeon vibes and the game is just a blast. It's a simple side scroller plane game but it's more you and a jetpack.
December 15th, 1986 showed us the release of Deadly Towers which made many people happy. I was not one of them.
This game is from December 14th, 1991 but this green dude doesn't exist to me on the NES. Never even knew he showed up until years later and had always thought he was an SNES mascot. Either way, I'm thrilled to have him on our team.
The Turtles on the NES are classic across the board. The first is the first and exciting strictly for that but it also gets insanely hard. Two is absolute perfection; it's so good it should be an SNES game. And then The Manhattan Project which follows the same line as 2. It's not as good because that pretty much impossible but it's a super enjoyable game you should play.
Dig Dug 2 didn't make it home until the 15th of December in 1989 but we're celebrating early. December is a weird month with a bunch of titles and I unfortunately have to give you this one early. But the reason I picked it and not the one you'll see in a few days is because Dig Dug is awesome and deserves respect and an early release.
