I cannot believe there is no mention of College Hoops 2k8 anywhere.

We complain about glitches in a game today but remember fondly how fun/frustrating it was to play with/against the LA Raiders. Its because we remember how fun it was to play the game as a kid.
I agree completely. 2k13 is amazing with the depth of the game. But I remember fondly Brad Muster coming out of the emergency room in Tecmo Bowl!

Jon Robinson's list reeks of nostalgia.

Not that that is right or wrong, just an observation.

Those are all great games, not sure Tecmo football should be #1 though. I'm glad to see No Mercy has that well of a rank on the list.

I love Tecmo Super Bowl. Still have the original NES and cart and I play it with my son every so often.
Great game, great memories.

I have lot's of sports games I love. But the 5 I listed.....are ones I still play to this day and with MVP 2005....I put 5 hardcore years into that one before switching to The Show series with the 2009 version. I still play NFL2K5 to this day as well as the other 3 listed.

The very best sports games today are amazing in every way.

Gameplay
Stats engines
presentation
player models
realism
franchise modes
be a player modes
AI
controls

Yeah I have great memories of games like Baseball Stars, Tecmo Super Bowl, Madden 93, NBA Live 95, Madden 99, Bill Walsh College Football

But wow.....we have it so amazingly good now.

For hardcore sim sports gamers....it does not get any better than right now for:

Baseball
Basketball
Soccer
Hockey
Boxing
Tennis
Golf

The only sport that has not lived up to the hype is football. It's been good.....but nothing like the other sports.

Lol, I loved nearly everything about that game. The music, single player content, gameplay., for a first attempt, and lone surfing title, it deserves at least an honorable mention

To be honest, my top ten would also include Table Tennis by R* lol...
