A great many of us are athletically challenged, and only a handful of us actually go on to play sports in high school or college, much less professionally.
Thankfully for the rest of us, there are video games.
They allow us to pretend we're Joe Montana or Michael Jordan—and occasionally a hockey-playing mutant—when we're sitting in our boxers on the couch.
I've compiled a list of my top 35 sports video games. I ranked them mostly according to my personal preference, though I threw some in that I know I'd be skewered for if they weren't included.
Enjoy, and please save your scalding criticism 'til the end.
