Golgo 13 was released on this fine day in 1988. I received for a Christmas present in probably 89 or 90 from my Grandmother which outside of the original Mario/Duck Hunt that came with my system; it was my only new game I had as a kid. I saved the box and kept it all together every time I wasn't playing. It wasn't that great but it was my most respected NES game.
Have you played this game? When this came out on December 1st, 1989 the graphics were mind bending. In just the opening they have an radical little soundtrack followed by the pixels moving for a guy going down a rope. Later they show a zoomed in image! A technological feat for all of humankind.
