Punch Out, which was the original title in the arcade before they licensed Mike Tyson for the NES version, and then they went back to it after Tyson fell out of favor. Mr Dream is the same exact "boss" as Tyson but has a lighter complexion.

Bonk's Revenge looks like it could be some good fun too.

Vitual Fighter 2 sounds like a possibility as my son and I have had a lot of enjoyable gameplay with SF 3rd Strike on the XBox. Other than in the arcade I actually never played Virtua Fighter.

How does Virtua Fighter 2 stack up as a console fighting game?

The Genesis version is a 2D sprite fighter that if I remember correctly was pretty good for the time.

I was all ready to mock you, I thought for sure this was one of the first 3d rendered fighters, but I guess you're right.  This is the first screenshot I could find for the Genesis version:

Yeah, I think they had a 3D version that came out for the 32X attachment, but the raw Genesis didn't get that.

Having played it on the Genesis Collection on PS2 I can say it isn't too bad.

I wasn't even aware there was a genesis collection for the PS2 that had games like VF 2. I'll definitely check out the cost and availability of it before I download this from VC.
