All Time Greatest Sports Video Games

Postby AT » Tue Sep 13, 2005 4:06 pm

I just read this link from Simmons' Intern...Pretty cool story. Got me reminiscing to the old games.

If you grew up with better than a basic nintendo or genesis your opinions are garbage as far as I'm concerned. You gotta be old school for this one.

http://www.boston.com/sports/lighter_si ... videogame/

The ommissions that got jipped were (IMO):

The first few FIFA games (Soccer) for Genesis and ultimately the PS2 version of the games were and still are amazing...

NHLPA 93 is, and always will be, better than 94 which I refused to buy because they took the fighting out (I was 13). Not to mention the Rangers were an absolute juggernaut that year...

Baseball Stars for Nintendo needs to be on there and so does Bases Loaded.

Bill Walsh College Football for Genesis was an absolute beast and is the first College Football game I remember. Had the fight songs, team profile cards that you could actually shuffle through while you were playing, deeper playbooks than Madden at that time, and was thoroughly a great game.

March Madness (Right Around 2000) for PS2 was an absolute beast before it got into all that NBA Live business with the Freestyle play and the ability to dunk from half court and a complete inability to play defense against anyone half-decent.

Also, Evander Holyfield's Real Deal Boxing for Genesiswas better than Fight Night if for no other reason than they started the new era of sick boxing games after Punchout.

Arcade games don't count so "Cruisin USA", "NFL Blitz", and "NBA Jam" don't really count because although they made appearances as a console game, they were predominantly an Arcade game.

What were your favorites?

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.

Tecmo and Punch Out are the best ones imo.

Yeah RBI is up there. The Sox lineup ruled with Jim Rice, Dwight Evans and Ellis Burks.
