We love Madden, but we can't deny that there have been other football sims that left their mark in video game history.
2k football :(
ATARI FOOTBALL ARCADE 1978 was my first football game ! Was one of the first video games , that made vertical scrolling popular.
I'll take it one further to the handheld football game where all you did was just go up and down until you reached the endzone. Yep! Had that AND the baseball variant. They re-released those about 10 years ago and I was SO tempted to get one...just for nostalgia. My favorite early football game was on the Commodore. It was 4th and Inches.
Oh yeah ! MATEL ELECTRONIC FOOTBALL 1977 , that handheld football game was awesome back then!
THAT'S THE ONE!!!! Those were the days!!! LOL
I wish I could been given a copy of NFL 2k5 with my xbox one bundle instead of madden 15, I am not liking madden at all so far. 2k5 is still to me the best football ever made
2k5 and all pro football 2k8 still put madden to shame.
Joe Montana talking Football
I loved all the games on the list except Quarterback Club. Football on the Atari 2600 was the first football game I ever played. It was alot of fun . The first 2 football games that I got addicted to was Super Tecmo Bowl and NFL 94 Starring Joe Montana.
Tecmo Super Bowl is a great game.
