Michael Jackson 1990 Moonwalker Video Game For Sega Genesis

Vintage Video Game Memorial: Michael Jackson's Moonwalker

However you watched Michael Jackson's memorial, we all have our own ways of dealing with the loss of a cultural icon. For my friends, it was by pulling out something dusty from the back of a closet: a Sega console and a copy of — wait for it — Michael Jackson's 1990 video game Moonwalker.

We blew out the game and hooked it up, and like Jackson himself, gameplay is a pretty outrageous. You dance villains to death and free kidnapped children all while midi "Smooth Criminal" plays. And at level intervals, the 16-bit king of pop's face comes on-screen and yells "OW!" in case you forgot who made the game.

Check out the video I found below, with the highlights of this video game that's as memorable as its namesake.
