Retroist Podcast – Episode 198 – Duck Hunt

On today’s show, I talk about the seminal video game shooting classic, Duck Hunt. I start off talking about my early experience with Duck Hunt and how it fueled my desire for a Nintendo Entertainment System. Then, in between butchering people’s names, I talk about the game itself. Some subjects I cover include: the games and systems that inspired Duck Hunt, the people who made the game, its reception, music, how to play, how to shoot the dog in Duck Hunt and much much more.
