Re: Video Games

Tecmo Bowl.

Oh. Wait.

What was the question, again?

Re: Video Games

I love them all, more each year.  But the year that made the biggest difference was the first year that letters were added over receiver's head so you could choose who to pass to.  I think that was 95.  I still have it for my Sega Genesis.

Re: Video Games

My fav was Madden 97. On defense there were two buttons: switch and dive/catch, if i remember correctly. It was so easy to get interceptions it was awesome. Offense was slightly more complicated. Madden 99 was also awesome. You could run outside all day with Terrell Davis and they introduced the juke that year, so it was way over powered. You would press the button and slide 5 yards to the side while not losing any forward speed. I probably ran for like 400 yards a game lol.

I thinkn that they get better every year.  However the new settings where each system has different things in the game sucks.  Is such a bummer that the 360 doesnt have the race mode anymore.  I hope that they go back to how it was.

I was invincible in Madden 98 with Detroit...Barry was amazing...

Re: Video Games

Actually, I liked 04 the most.  For me, just the right mix of action and strategy ( owners mode )...but it still gave you full control of gameplay.  I still use 2003 for my "Fantasy League" though.  I replaced each team with a different logo, uniform and, in some cases, city and then did a draft to mix things up.  IMO that year's release gave the best uniform options.   Geeky I know but it's fun to mess around with when I play my niece's and nephews

Re: Video Games

I think it was Madden 92

Yeah the DOS graphics were basic, but it was fun to play...except I remember passing wasn't the easiest.

I played the KC Chiefs with Okoye and the other RB (forgot his name)...and the AI on defense had a flaw that a sweep play would fool all the defenders and so I ended the season undefeated and with stupidly outrageous stats, like:

Avg points per game: 80+

With 5 min qtrs: Avg time of posession: 5 mins total

Okoye and the other RB had over 2000 yds each.

From where I no longer have to remember the coversheets to the TPS reports.

Why?  Because the Bobs made me the boss.

Re: Video Games

anyone play the PC game Football Pro by Sierra? That was a great game! You could design plays, owners mode and with add-ons from independent publishers you could see if your guy made it to the Hall of Fame.

Tecmo bowl also rocked.

As far as Madden, I really like 2004 the best.

Re: Video Games

Okay I don't remember what year of Madden this was, but it allowed you to use the mouse to pass. So you would click and the QB would launch the ball down the field. I think all I did was run Hail Marys and throw the ball deep. I want to say it was 93 or 94 but I'm not sure. It was a long time ago, I barely remember.

Re: Video Games

yeah that sounds about right.  I remember the hail marys being easier to throw than the short routes.  That too must have reduced my TOP.

Sheesh....

Re: Video Games

Has anyone here ever played Tom Landry Football?? It was an amazing game around 1992 that came on a floppy disk. It was probably the most fun game I've ever played but I lost the disk like 5 years ago.

I can't stand Madden. I loved the ESPN 2k5 game.
