Though we live in a world where Deep Blue can win against a Chess Grandmaster, the fact remains that the computer is inherently never going to be as good as a human player who understands the systems of a game. They are fundamentally handicapped by their nature, so game AI cheats far more than we think in order to close the gap. A good game will never let the player see this, since nothing shatters the illusion faster than seeing how the sausage is made. But then, there’s these games. These 14 games weren’t careful enough to keep us from behind the curtain. Share your examples in the comments below!

Mike Tyson - Punch-Out

Mike Tyson- Mike Tyson’s Punch Out

Iron Mike’s legendary performance in the world of boxing is as well documented as his fall from grace and infamous tattoo, but his early appearance in the world of Nintendo has gone down as one of the moments that would define “Nintendo Hard”. In a display somewhat similar to the real life events, the AI was only able to deliver KO punches against the player character, Little Mac for the first round. His fast, hard to read movements made just surviving long enough to have a shot against Tyson difficult enough, but unless you were omnipresent, you weren’t going to last that long anyways.
