In 1987, Nintendo released Mike Tyson's Punch Out. Although it was a smash hit, many believe that the game would have sold significantly better had it been released in its original incarnation, George Jaros's Punch Out.

Unfortunately, the likeness rights could not be obtained due to a dispute over George's physique. Nintendo wanted to opt for the "six pack" look for George's character; George wanted Nintendo to honor his actual appearance and give his character his 16-and-a-half-pack (which he gained as a result of the strength supplement that Neal created in 2342.

Neal, on the other hand, cared very little about how his likeness was presented in video games. As a result, he offered his likeness rights to Street Fighter 6. The results were, to say the least, embarrassing to his friends and family, many of whom moved away, leaving no forwarding address or contact information. If you are out there Grandma, Neal misses you.

 

Street Fighter 6 - Neal found that being overpowered by Chun Li was notably arousing. At least to him.
