Best Football Games That Aren't Madden (Prima Games)

So if you don't play pigskin with the legendary Madden, who should you play with...? (NFL Blitz, PS3, Retro, Tecmo Bowl Throwback, Xbox 360)

This confused me until I realised they meant 'American' football.

American football is Rugby for wimps.

That's what they say, but American football is more refined and has strategy and grace and you have to remember plays and its a really amazing sport. Cant say I've ever played Rugby or care to, but I played high school and college football and its not for wimps in the least. Especially playing in Florida.

On topic, NFL2K5 was amazing, NFL Fever was great too, I also have fond memories of 989's Gameday. Good times.

Bet a wimpy high school team could tackle you all night and day.

Nah,they'd be too busy whipping each others asses with wet towels in the locker room.

I've played a very good share of both and I can say each has their place. I'd say Rugby is a bit tougher but for Football - players don't hold back as much when hitting since they have pads on...

Rugby players wouldn't stand a chance in the NFL. Where as NFL players wouldn't have too much trouble adjusting to rugby.

I consider ruby a sport for football rejects.

American Football=A game where you run around with the ball in your hands.
American Football and Rugby both suck anyway.Football or soccer to dumb ass Americans is the only real football anyway.AF is just for padded up sissy boys.

***"AF is just for padded up sissy boys."***

LOL Only people that have never played football say this. .

You should have no trouble making millions in the NFL then since you know you'd be up against a bunch of "sissy boys" eh?/s

I enjoyed Cyberball, but I'd much prefer to see Mutant League Football or even Jerry Glanville's Pigskin Footbrawl, even if it just vaguely resembled the actual sport.

I second the suggestions for Mutant League Football and 989's PS1 Gameday's... how's 'bout NFL Football on the Intellivision and Joe Montana Sport's Talk Football and Genesis, too?

BTW (bring on the hate)but NFL 2K5 is overrated.

In no order and the top of my head

1. NFL Quarterback Club(SNES)
2. NFL 2K5(PS2)
3. Tecmo Bowl Series(NES/SNES)
4. John Elway' Quarterback(NES)
5. I would like to say Blitz but I want all sim football choices.
