Tecmo Bowl

released on Dec 31, 1987

A side-scrolling, four-player American football game that can be played as two-on-two, one-on-two, etc. The game is somewhat primitive in that there is no play pattern selection; only the receiver can be selected before play begins. One player controls the QB, the other plays the wide receiver/running back.

This has no right to be this fun

I hate football. I love this game.

I fucking love this game; I have willingly played a season of tecmo bowl over several years of madden, a game with so much more than there is on the surface, one of the best football games of all time.

Unironically the only Football game I have ever enjoyed playing, and as a person who doesn't really enjoy sports that says a lot.

Another one for me and my pops.

I'm not a huge fan of the sports genre but this is easily the best one I've played - still holds up great today as well.
