The Way-Back Machine: Super Spike V'Ball


They certainly don't make 'em like they used to, and they certainly don't make something like Super Spike V'Ball these days. What started as a fun arcade game — under the title ofU.S. Championship V'Ball — became a super-addictive port on the NES back in 1989-1990. Sports games like this were so great because they truly understood how to take a simple concept and make it approachable to all players. The “sport” was disambiguated from the game, and users were able to focus on a few gameplay systems rather than dwell on their unfamiliarity with the sport in question. Many football, baseball and hockey games around this time also achieved success by employing a similar design philosophy.

this was one of my favorite games on the NES, we had some great tournys back then. we also had those not playing at that moment watching to make sure no one switched their turbo buttons on for the super spikes.

this was the reason I bought the NES Four Score.

Beach Spikers for the Gamecube is probably the best Volleyball game in recent years. It was made by Sega's AM2 studio.
