    Default 8BIT Nintendo game based on Deathwish?

    My buddy claims that there was a Nintendo game made about Death Wish. It might not have that name, though. Can anyone point me in the right direction to it's name and some info on this? I can't come up with anything from my memory. Thanks.

    Your friend is likely mis-remembering Dirty Harry, which would be understandable considering the era and genre of both films.

    There was a Death Wish computer game though.

    He stills says it was on the NES. Unfortunately, all he remembers is that the guy you play wanders around and karate chops people until he finds a revolver. And that could be literally 10's of games. I thought it might be Metal Gear at first. Eh, if you know what this might be, let a brother know. Thanks for yer time.

    Well, there may be games that fit that description, but, like I mentioned Death Wish was not released on the NES.

    You can say to your friend with impunity that whatever it is, it is not "Death Wish".

    Yeah, I told him that he might be combining memories or thinking of a dream he had. Whatever. He's not really a gamer, so for all I know it could have been Metal Gear. Heh.
