I'd be curious to hear what the initial pitch for Donkey Kong sounded like. The idea of a gorilla that's kidnapped a princess and hurls barrels at a plumber is a little bit bizarre, even by gaming standards. Nevertheless, the ape has held the #2 spot of most famous Kong for 31 years and isn't going away anytime soon. From his first apperance in arcades, up through a 2007 documentary, The King of Kong, no other primate in the gaming world has garnered such attention. We've scouted all of Donkey Kong Country for the best examples of Kong tribute art around.
