Topic: How different do you think gaming would be if 1981's Donkey Kong was a Popeye game?

Posts 1 to 3 of 3


The original 1981 Donkey Kong (the game that both Mario and Donkey Kong debuted in) was originally going to be a Popeye game. The Popeye game Nintendo actually released was nowhere near as successful as Donkey Kong. Do you think that Nintendo or even the Japanese game industry as a whole would be as big as it is in the real events?

Probably another game would've come along.


It's like, I just love a cowboy
You know
I'm just like, I just, I know, it's bad
But I'm just like
Can I just like, hang off the back of your horse
And can you go a little faster?!


I have no idea. Too many unknown variables. I loved Popeye, though. It's like that was one of the first licensed cartoon properties in a video game that I can recall.
