A popular and classic video game produced in 1981. Often considered one of the greatest video games ever made due to its simple gameplay, revolutionary sounds and graphics and universal appeal. The original name of the game was called "Monkey Kong", but due to a faxing error from the U.S. to Japan before the game was to be completed, Donkey Kong was born.
Donkey Kong also starred a then unknown hero named Mario, who, four years later in 1985 would receive his very own adventure game for the Nintendo Entertainment System, thus launching an entire new revolution in video games.
It also passed down a generation when in 1994, Donkey Kong Country was released to the Super Nintendo, thus claiming its own legendary legacy in the gaming world.
Rightfully amazing. Never duplicated. Donkey Kong.
Mortal Kombat sucks compared to Donkey Kong.
Kid: Mortal Kombat, on Sega Genesis, is the best video game ever.
Billy Madison: I disagree, it's a very good game, but i think Donkey Kong is the best game ever.
Kid: Donkey Kong sucks.
Billy Madison: You know something? YOU SUCK!
