This "baby's toy" had a far bigger impact than you realize.

But even though the 1985 NES version of Wild Gunman is downright ancient as far as contemporary gaming sensibilities go, it's actually been around for far longer. It's responsible for an unlikely alliance between rival gaming powerhouses, and even inspired a highbrow art-world takedown of traditional American masculinity. Let's dive in to the history of Wild Gunman you probably never knew.
