Tecmo Super Bowl

I mentioned Tecmo Super Bowl in one of my previous blogs. Why is this like the best sports game ever made (I'd go as far as saying one the best games ever made)? It's a 8 bit game that game out in the late 80's early 90's. It certainly doesn't have the dept of todays sports games. No stadium visuals, no real player faces and body types. An etremely limited playbook, no commentator (which could be a blessing). It's not advanced at all. But I'd go as far to say that many people would play that before picking up Madded or NCAA 2006. There's something about it that makes me gravitate toward it. Whenever i mention Bo Jackson or Lawrence Taylor, people know that on Tecmo they were beasts until about 3/4 into the season when they started getting hurt. Running Warren Moon back to the endzone and chucking the ball 99 yards as your players dives into the endzone to catch the ball from the 1 yard line. Running in zigzags to avois tackles while that one guy gets a super speed burst to just miss you as he dives. Winning the Super Bowl with John Fourcade. Tecmo Super Bowl may not be the best game graphically, but it has to be the most memorable game of all time.
