Michael Jackson's Moonwalker: Bad Ass for its time

Not that the guy’s already gone but truth be told, Moonwalker which was released in the mid 90’s in the arcades was actually one of the more engaging arcade games of the time. i remember myself in my teens with three of my friends — all playing as MJ. We’d spend Saturday afternoon beating the game.

For its time, Moonwalker had spectacular graphics, faithful and catchy background music and charge moves — yeah, the charge moves where’ you’d press and hold the attack button and MJ would moonwalk while charging up a ball of energy.

And of course, who could forget the special dance moves that would nuke an entire screen of enemies. So that was pretty bad ass. MJ would dance with everybody and blow them up after. Can Chuck Norris do that?
