I gotta say it here,all those sports games were great and my friends and I played them for a couple years on end. Every one of them!!! I still love Baseball,Bowling Skiing etc.
hi there, they was (are) great and for some (me at least) the reason to decide for the inty (licensed or not, while i guess it makes a difference, certainly not for the game but to sell a game.
how much nickels i will ever have spent in arcade machines, the sports games made the difference to me, unfortunately back then i couldn't get my hands on the "super" releases to play them without a friend.
The best? Creating more original games!
in some sort of way i guess it has been digged out what's to dig out, real new ideas i can't imagine (me).
but well, original mustn't mean a complete new concept, just original.
that was a very pointed point.
i guess yes they brought them a lot of reputation, so i also guess the sports licenses had payed off well.
"players" are idiots (pardon me), but they run for a character (or brand) they know no matter how bad the game is, it was and it's still that way.
i'm pretty sure you could sell millions of "pong" if it would be entitled "zelda".
