15 FOOTBALL VIDEO GAMES YOU SHOULD HAVE IN YA COLLECTION AT ALL TIMES

What it do mayne? Football season is right around the corner and I couldn’t help but think about all the great football games that have came out over the years. Football video games have came a long way since NFL Football debut in 1979 for Mattel Intellivision. 

As many are still arguing that Dallas is America’s favorite team, here are 15 football games that many would argue are America’s favorite games. Feeling a little old? Don’t. Madden is still ruling the gaming world even if you did play the first one in 1990 on Sega Genesis. Peep the list and see if you got any of these in your all-time collection. #SWBY

1. TECMO BOWL

Release Date: 1987

System: Nintendo

Even with up to date and advanced graphics and a killer Madden franchise, MANY will say that this is the greatest football video game of all-time. I might not even argue that. After all one of few video games to feature Bo Jackson. Bo knows.

 

2. JOE MONTANA FOOTBALL

Release Date: 1990

System: Sega Genesis

They want to throw Tom Brady around as the greatest quarterback ever but I will forever argue that these new athletes can’t have that title until they get their own video game and not just grace a cover. That’s for all sports games.

 

3. MUTANT LEAGUE FOOTBALL

Release Date: 1993

System: Sega Genesis

This game was super fun for the time period. Not to mention it was the first violent and gruesome football game created. It was different but the cartoon brought this game to life!

 

4. SUPER PLAY ACTION FOOTBALL

Release Date: 1992

System: Super Nintendo

This game was just a tad bit better than Tecmo Super Bowl for Super Nintendo.

5. NFL QUARTERBACK CLUB 96

Release Date: 1995

System: Sega Genesis, Super Nintendo

This was not a bad series. The fact that you could do the quarterback challenge was pretty cool.

6. NFL BLITZ

Release Date: 1997

System: Arcade

This was the NBA Jam of football games. This hit like wildfire. 7 on 7. Damn near no rules. It was on.

7. NFL GAMEDAY 99

Release Date: 1999

System: Playstation

This series was live! I still believe if they would have stuck with this series as game systems advanced , they could have gave the Madden franchise a run for its money.

8. NCAA GAMEBREAKER 99

Release Date: 1999

System: Playstation

Again this series should have continued to give EA Sports a run for its money.

9. ESPN NFL FOOTBALL

Release: 2003

System: XBOX

ESPN made some cool ass games. This was so realistic at the time. I think that you could even C-Walk during a touchdown celebration.

10. MADDEN 96

Release Date: 1995

System: Sega Genesis, Super Nintendo

The Madden series. Enough said.

11. NCAA FOOTBALL 2K3

Release: 2002

System: X-box

I don’t why 2K/ESPN stopped it’s football series. It was just as good as the basketball series.

12. NFL FEVER 2004

Release Date: 2003

System: X-BOX

This was a cool series Microsoft had going. I guess nothing could compete with Madden long enough to stay relevant.

13. NCAA FOOTBALL 2001

Release Date: 2000

System: Playstation

Damn shame that this franchise had to end. Running dynasty will beat running a franchise any day.

14. TROY AIKMAN NFL FOOTBALL

Release Date: 1994

System: Sega Genesis, Super Nintendo

America’s quarterback had America’s game at the time.

15. NFL STREET

Release Date: 2004

System: XBOX, PS2, Nintendo Gamecube

This was the like the best game to play against ya friends. Running up walls was different and creative. It was almost like playing Dead Man Pickup on a video game.
