ESPN Ranks 25 Best Sports Game Ever, Comes Up Close to OS'ers



ESPN's Jon Robinson has been going through his personal top sports video games of all time and came up with a list that was very similar to what OS'ers voted on last year during our second ever 'Best Sports Video Game Ever' tournament.

In his list, Robinson ranks Tecmo Super Bowl at the top of his list, which was the runner-up in our tournament. In the OS tournament, MVP Baseball 2005 (#4), WWF No Mercy (#5), Tecmo Super Bowl (#1), and MLB '10: The Show (did not appear) made up our final four. MLB '13: The Show did appear on Robinson's list at #18 though.

Other notables for were our first 'Best Sports Game Ever' tournament finalists of NFL 2K5 at number eight and College Hoops 2K8 at 18th.

Robinson's Top Five
#1 Tecmo Super Bowl
#2 NHL 94
#3 Mike Tyson's Punch Out
#4 MVP Baseball 2005
#5 WWE No Mercy

What do you think of Robinson's list? What would your own top five list look like?

Nice list. I'd throw MTPO about NHL though. I would also replace WWE NM with NFL 2k5. Either way, that's a solid set.

I still play Tecmo Super Bowl mods to this day. Game is just flat out fun to play!

Tecmo SB was a great game.

I would put Pro Evolution Soccer 5 or 6 on the list as well.

Surprised Pro Evo 3 didn't make it somewhere on the list but outside of that little to no complaints

Great list! Mine is somewhat similar:

1) NHL 94
2) NFL 2k5
3) Tecmo Super Bowl
4) MTPO
5) High Heat Baseball 2002 [for the PC] (for me, no baseball game has risen to that level!)

It looks like it's more of a nostalgic list than anything but NBA2K13 is one of the greatest sports games ever made, imo.
