I want to believe that if this trailer for Paperboy 3: The Hard Way was entered into the Grindhouse faux trailer contest that ran for the Grindhouse theatrical film, that it would have easily beaten out Hobo with a Shotgun for first place.
Paperboy is one of those video game titles that I remember fondly playing in the arcades as a kid. I also owned it on the NES as well, but my memories of that just aren’t as fond. I don’t honestly think it had anything to do with the way the game played, but the lack of proper audio and colors that the arcade had offered.
Still, with the limitations of the Nintendo Entertainment System’s hardware and the fact that Paperboy was the first NES game developed in the United States , it’s not that bad.
