Right now this image is the top trending link on gaming.reddit. I wanted to share it as soon as possible because it’s just that awesome.

  • I’m terrible at the NES games. I think I killed Mario like a billion times. Good luck kid.

  • HaroldO

    That is just fantastic. I myself never had a NES as the Master System was more popular and widely available where I lived, But I remember that I couldn’t beat a game until I got my SNES. Games were frigging hard back then.

  • AntiAvenger

    Best parenting strategy… like ever. I have to remember this for the future!

  • TheyCallMeTomu

    If the kid had any sense he would have insisted that he get to pick the game. Clearly this parent has not taught his child how to think rationally. He should be ashamed at his child’s gullibility. Tsk tsk tsk.

    • TheyCallMeTomu

      Come to think of it, so help this parent’s wallet if the kid figures out that there was no stipulation that said he couldn’t use Game Genie… though, good luck finding one without getting your parent’s assistance to buy it!

  • odderz

    Aha, absolutely spectacular. I’m going to keep this in mind, and keep my NES close at hand…

  • foreverbadass

    This man (or woman) is a credit to gamers everywhere. This is perhaps the best parenting strategy of all time; good thing I kept my NES…

  • omniaus

    Tooooo cruel. That bet is a parental statement saying you will never have a 360.

    Here’s a video that explains the torture of the game:


  • snap. now i gotta buy a “new” nes, the last one burned in a rage epic quit.

  • Nuckel

    Made my day.

  • PrinceJonathan

    …Doesn’t Silver Surfer have a God Mode?

    Checking it out on GameFAQs, the only walkthrough they have lists some passwords at the bottom and one of them, KJTTJK, is an invincibility code.

    Also has Full Power weapons, Unlimited Continues and Level Skip codes.

    Somebody needs to find this kid and tell him.
