Today I was rummaging through my closet, packing for what will be yet another brutal trip across the country, and I came across my old Nintendo. It was still in the box, it still works (as far as I know), and it had a shoebox of games next to it.
However this was not my original Nintendo, I had bought this one on Ebay a few years back, and the original one I had sold—along with all the games—back when I was in college. In going through these games I currently have, I noticed I had the original Tecmo Bowl, but not Tecmo Super Bowl, and it got me thinking....
Was Tecmo Super Bowl not the greatest football video game during its time?
I mean, you had all the teams, almost all the actual players, and you could play the entire 1991 schedule. Fantastic for a 10-year-old boy who had nothing better to do than play video games.
But then I got to thinking about some of the best players on that game, and not just Bo Jackson. There were so many others that could heave the ball 90 yards for a score, or lineman who could run faster than a tailback. So, it made me think, who are the best players in Tecmo Super Bowl history.
During this slideshow I will attempt to put these players on a list, in no particular order, to honor the game that both PS3 and Xbox are trying desperately to recreate for 2010.
