Is Tecmo Super Bowl not considered arcade?

To me what it means to be an arcade game would specifically relate to unrealistic statistics. In Tecmo Super Bowl you could throw for 100 yard bombs, rush for 300 yards, and get 10 sacks in one game. It was so competitive and fun but definitely not a simulation. I hope 2K takes the NES Tecmo Super Bowl engine and updates it in the best ways possible. I would be first in line to play this competivley online. Please 2K make it happen. What do you think makes a game arcade versus simulation.

I think you nailed it. Based on something real, but obviously not an accurate representation.

I'd argue Madden is arcade after a guy won the Madden Bowl without throwing a pass.

.. I think NBA Jam is the mother of sports arcade games. If 2k can manage to roll out something like that, I'd be beyond thrilled. Not sure how to make that work though? 7-on-7? No RB? I can't see the licensing agreement allowing them to produce anything close to what Tecmo is/was.

Re: Is Tecmo Super Bowl not considered arcade?

It most certainly is an arcade game and the best ever doing it for the NFL.
I consider RBI Baseball 3 (NES) and Baseball Stars (NES) the best arcade versions for baseball.

What all these games had was amazingly addictive gameplay (I still play these titles from time to time on my original NES) but also season mode with statistics to go over and have fun with. Baseball Stars was ahead of itís time for sure.

If 2K can make and NFL game like Tecmo Super Bowl I will be thrilled.

There is one that came out for Hockey this past year call Super Blood Hockey. Awesome fun.

I agree with all of you, and I'll be the hockey voice in the room to say NHL Hitz Pro is the greatest arcade hockey game of all-time, and the series as a whole is the greatest NHL arcade series of all-time.

Hoping 2k delivers a fun, customization-heavy experience!
