Many people out there who owned the NES in later years probably did not realize that Duck Hunt and Mario Brothers were both in the arcade before the NES. Duck Hunt, a single player game, was released by Nintendo in 1984, and there was another version, called Vrs. Duckhunt, that allowed two players to compete.
Duck Hunt was an arcade shooter that the boys from Duck Dynasty would be proud of. In this game, the player’s dog would flush out ducks from a marshy area, whereby the player would then shoot them down (PETA probably didn’t like this game). Hitting a certain number of ducks would advance the player to the next level or bonus level.
