As we get to the top of the college basketball period and transition into the magnificence of the 2011 baseball season, I conclude it truly is only fitting to think about several of the most unforgettable, yet forgotten sports games of all-time. Some of these were set aside thanks to politics, others were shelved just because people happen to be far too fickle to give them a chance (pun intended).
Nonetheless, this is my list of the most unforgettable sports games that nobody discusses anymore. Well, we will change that right this moment…
NFL blitz meets NHL 2k in this amazing game. This game is not as forgotten as some, bragging a fairly solid cult following of individuals familiar with the likes of the Shark Tank, Circus Rink, and the ever imposing Disco Arena (a tough location for any challenger to go into) yet you would nevertheless be challenged to find it. The game play is definitely fantastic and truly quite solid for a game that’s meant to be over the top. Here’s a secret, do anything you could to get out to an early lead, and set your defense to zone and “less aggressive.” And who could forget the quarrels? Evidently, so many people. The game survived only 2 years.
Barkley Shut Up And Jam
Barkley Shut Up and Jam! This is sure to be a somewhat controversial option, as several will argue that it already has a reboot and is not that forgotten about. But the video game was solid. Basically, everything you should understand about the video game is on the front cover. It features Charles Barkley and lots of dunking. This video game offered something that most games don’t provide nowadays: simplicity and the ability to commit a flagrant foul any time you wanted. Travel the nation, taking on the likes of D-Train from Watts and Funky D from Oakland, chain nets, 360 dunks, and awesomely lame music. What else can you ever want in a basketball game?
ESPN NFL 2K5
All hell broke loose when this video game was launched for the incredibly low price of $19.95. Madden had to respond with a 40% price decrease of their own, marking their version of the video game all the way down to $29.99. The series was initially unveiled when Madden made the decision not to produce a version of its series for Dreamcast. But, even Madden could not match the game play which NFL 2K5 offered, a game that felt extremely realistic and set the tone for Madden’s “Truck Stick” having its maximum tackle element. Its franchise and “career mode” just weren’t nearly as deep as Madden, and yes it had several useless features like first person football as well as the Crib (which NCAA Football eventually stole for the “dorm room’) yet who can forget draft mode with Mel Kiper, and the SportsCenter cutaways? A solid game that for 20 bucks was the steal of the century.
