Super Nintendo, atleast the Ken Griffey Jr. Baseball game I played all day, every day was on the Super Nintendo. Even the homerun derby ruled in that game.

I believe the Super Nintendo had 2 Griffey games, and then 1 or 2 on the N64 when it came out.

Indeed... I'm talking about the original on the SNES... I never really got into the second one that much even though you could trade players AND I think the game actually kept stats for others for the year as well... not just your own.

Oh how I miss those days.

Re: Whatever Happened to the Good Times?

Great article .....and responses.

Back on the NES and Genesis, I would get a game, play around for 5 minutes to learn the controls and then start a season. In recent years however, purchases were immediately followed with a "Slider Adjusting" period......it would sometimes take weeks before I could really start to "play" a game. Each year, it was taking longer and longer to get those perfect settings.

But a year or two ago, I was getting really frustrated with sliders for a sports game (Can't remember which one). Suddenly, I stopped and thought "Hey wait a minute, 10-15 years ago, I was having alot of fun with games that aren't nearly as good this is."

From that point on, I have really tried to take the approach of enjoying the game. I will still play a little with the sliders in the beginning, and I might post a few whining complaints here at OS, but after that I move on and just enjoy the game....like I did on the NES.

I played the crap out of the N64 version. Simple yet ridiciculously fun game.

Playing NFL 2k online with my Dreamcast was very enjoyable......very underrated system.
