Re: OS Roundtable: Most Dominant Cyber Athlete

My unsung but highly dominant player would be Marcus Camby of UMass in Coach K College Basketball. On the defensive side of the ball he was like Patrick Ewing and Bill Russell put together. Anyone who tested him down low saw their shot rejected, and then on offense he was a helluva player who could hit jumpshots from about the 10-12' range. He was a total monster.

Wilkins was the 3-point line dunk which I used all the time to beat my brother, LOL.
IIRC in Tecmo Bowl the Giants had a play where Mark Bavaro was uncoverable. Even if you picked that play the route he ran couldn't be intercepted and once he caught the ball he was a beast to take down as he had near Bo Jackson like break tackle ability. By himself he made the Giants offense almost unstoppable and generally lead to a lot of 'house rules' against that one play.

The 49ers also had a similar player with Roger Craig out of the backfield that was completely undefendable.

Jordan in Tecmo Basketball. He was unstoppable in my hands.

LOL, I remember both plays well... if you had the right LB and DE combo, you could stop the Craig play. The Bavaro play was pretty much unstoppable. (I think we had a rule against that play too!)

As far as Tecmo Bowl - Kevin Mack was beastly, along with Eric Dickerson (if you happened to have the version with him on the Colts) who would run out of any blitz...LOL.

Tecmo Super Bowl - I made many friends cry with Christian Okoye. The 49ers as a whole, were illegal on there too.

As far as next-gen games - Earl Campbell on APF2K8 did WHATEVER he wanted to do before the patch...LOL

Yeah Campbell was a beast. It usually a red flag for game developers when the game was designed for people to mix and match stars but 90 percent of the teams had one guy.

I am not a fan of Reggie Miller but using him in the NBA Live series on Sega was unfair.

Dude, that was so freakin true. I had a buddy back in the day that always picked the Pacers and shot nothing but 3's with them...they had a couple other deadeyes on that team right? Was it Chuck Person I think! Miller and Person would have like 40 plus points each, no one else in double digits. I would pick the Rockets and just abuse the paint with Hakeem. Kenny Smith, Vernon Maxwell, and Chris Jent could hang with almost any team from 3. Might have to dust off the old Sega and play a game or two...
