How to Play Mega Man 2

Sure we have all kinds of online game references today, but what did you do if you got stuck in a game before the internet age? You may have watched a video like this one, part of a VHS (a what?) series released with the gaming magazine Game Players. This guide combines actual game footage with narration straight out of a work training video. Cutting edge for 1989!

You really do have to love a guide that recommends using a turbo controller, and taking damage to run through enemies. It may seem cheap now, but it was fairly common practice back then (when games were, you know, challenging). And if you can sit through the whole thing, you'll be treated to a ridiculously awesome commercial at the end.
