Well, bravo, this is truly the Family Guy of "awful sports articles written from a high school Journalism class", try to get people to chime in not to form a discussion, but to reminisce about the fact that "I too remember NHL 2002!!!!11111 Shanahan was da bomb diggity!!!!" as opposed to actually having a decent discussion.

It's no wonder why your "activation email" ended up in my spam folder.


anyway, my pick would be the 'tanned' dudes in super spike v-ball - remember them?

The first iteration of NCAA Football, which came after Bill Walsh '95, for the Genesis/SNES, featured some of the most horrifically frustrating comeback AI in any game I've played. I used to rent that game regularly, and try to beat the computer... I'd play as Nebraska, probbaly the best team in the game, against Akron, the worst. Akron would always win. At one point, I had a 14 point lead with the ball and 20 seconds left. I fumbled for a TD and with 5 seconds left on the clock, they kicked off to me... I had every intention of receiving the kick, draining the 5 seconds, and running out of bounds or into the endzone to end the game. Yet with 0:00 on the clock, as I am racing to get out of bounds, I am tackled, fumble, and the CPU returns it for a TD. NOT ONLY THAT, but it was the first year EA implemented the two-point conversion, and they went for two and beat me by 1.

Other than that, I agree with Attezz -- especially because some of the remarks in the article are just incorrect. Making a friend play as the Wizards in NBA Street was not punishment -- Michael Jordan was on that team and was the best player in the game. He was also on the cover of the game. The Jordan / Yeti / Shaq combo was the most unstoppable combo in the game.

What remarks in this article are incorrect? Please note that this article is purely opinion based, so it was based off my personal experiences with these games. There is no scientific method of proving which teams are truly the best in video game history.

P.S. Jordan was not on the Wizards in NBA Street- he was an unlockable character that you received when beating the game. He was not assigned to a specific team in the game. Here is the Wizards team list as taken directly from the game guide that I have lying around in my media room (I still play the game a lot).

Washington Wizards
Jahidi White
*Richard Hamilton-Superstar
Courtney Alexander
*Mitch Richmond
*Christian Laettner

Also, Attezz, can you please justify your comments with some supporting statements? I value your opinion, but you have said some pretty strong comments about this article and have provided no proof for your statements.

Again, it's ok that you guys don't like the article, but this is an opinion based article, and there is no right/wrong answer. You say that this article is not condusive to debate, but I'd have to disagree. This article was made so that you could talk about past memories, but also put the teams you remember as being dominant into the limelight.

Attezz- what do you mean by "it's no wonder your activation email ended up in my junk box"?

Another glaring error in this shoddily written article. it's QB EAGLES, not QB #12. Have you played any of these games in the past 15 years or are you just making up random tripe off the top of your head?

I haven't played all those games, but I can vouch for #'s 23, 22, 21, 16, 15, 11, and 7 (especially #16, as I had many seasons with the new Charlotte Hornets...Rex Chapman, Mugsy Bogues, Mike Gminski, Del Curry, etc.). These retrospective articles are gold. Good job, I love it.

Every single error that people have tried to point out in these two articles has been proven to be wrong. Keep em coming though.

I played all of these games non stop growing up. I researched the heck out of this article before writing it, and I did not make any of it up.

Sorry the majority of posters this week apparently hate this article, and think it's "shoddily" written.

I hope there are some out there who find this to be an enjoyable read, and can see this article for what it is- an entertainment piece that can inspire some fun discussion about dominant sports teams thoroughout sports gaming history.

Some people take these things way to seriously.

One I remember that probably won't make the list, but you never know, is Oklahoma St. in NCAA Basketball for the SNES. They had a 3 point shooter who would hit about 90% of his 3's.
