I don't remember where I saw it (I'm sure it's on Youtube by now) but someone made a recreation of Game 6 of the 1986 World Series using RBI baseball. They dubbed in the audio from the original broadcast. That was pretty funny.

LOL at the hit scoring. I remember if a guy got to 1st, I would throw the ball away so I could throw him out going to second and keep a "no-hitter" going. Ah, to be young again.

Good idea for a feature, but it needs vids and/or screen shots.

Did you happen to click the link and read the article?

There's at least three screen shots embedded in the article.

Wow, TO, you preferred Major League Baseball? Really? I thought that game was horrid, and if I recall correctly, it actually came out before RBI by at least a month or two. MLB was a part of the group of games released by LJN that were utter garbage. In MLB, every fielder wore what looked like catcher's gloves, and every time a batter made contact, the screen would blink and there would be about a 2 second pause until the next screen came up and showed where the ball was hit.

RBI crapped all over that sorry excuse for a game.

Awwww, memories. I loved RBI Baseball, Baseball Stars and Baseball Simulator 1.000. Everything was so much simpler back then.

I was just a kid. I didn't know any better!

I still have this game for my NES, although it doesn't work very well. I loved it, especially stealing bases with the cardinals and pitching with nolan ryan.

RBI was so much fun back then. I also played a ton of Bases Loaded. Paste and Bay used to tear it up on the New Jersey team.

TJ: you're right about how today games are held to a higher standard. In some ways I agree that they should be scrutinized as we are paying more for the games, and thus, expect more. But, we've also lost that youthful innocence along the way. As you mentioned, bugs in games we played as youths didn't bother us. As long as the overall experience was enjoyable, that's all that mattered. I think we need to go back to that mentality when it comes to how we view games.
