Ninja Turtles on NES...

I grew up as an '80s kid. I played with Transformers, He-Man action figures, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I watched their shows. I carried my food in their lunchboxes. For Halloween, I wore their costumes. So naturally, I played their video games.
Games based on franchises, even back then, sucked. And although there are some good games based on the Ninja Turtles, the first game on the NES, was fucking awful. Not only was it awful, but it was so hard. So difficult for a young, rage-filled child like me, that I remember biting my NES controller so hard that one of my loose teeth popped out.
Thank god for that loose tooth, because I had to use the Tooth Fairy money I got to buy a new NES controller -- because I smashed the shit out of it, making it only one of two times I've broken a controller I was so angry. (The other time was because I kept losing to Sagat in Street Figher II Turbo Edition)
To anyone with a similar childhood memory of this game, this video is for you (and me).
