Duck Hunt

Duck Hunt may have been (and still is) one of the most popular games in NES history, but let’s be honest.

We all just wanted to shoot the dog, didn’t we?

When the game debuted in 1985, it seemed fun enough–– use your Nintendo Zapper to shoot those pesky ducks that flew into the air from behind the bushes. All you had to do was blast ten ducks, and you’d move on to the next round. After ten rounds, the game flipped. Plus, you also had your two-duck option and the ‘clay’ shooting option, too. See? Fun!

…until you miss–– when ol’ Rover (or whatever his frickin’ name was) would pop up and give a little, derisive giggle.

You gotta imagine that the idea of wanting to shoot the damn dog would have come up somewhere in the testing phase. And it’s not like the developers decided against it because of the humanity of it all… seriously, the whole point of the game was shooting cute little ducks!

Over the years, the idea of killing the Duck Hunt dog has taken on a life of its own. Don’t believe us? Google “kill Duck Hunt dog”.

5,240,000 results in .15 seconds.

In fact, if you (like us) have 25+ years of pent-up frustration, here’s a little something for ya. Thank us later.

We ♥ Duck Hunt.
