My Top 6 Favorite Sports Video Games From My Childhood

NCAA Football is coming back after a decade-long hiatus. And in honor of the iconic video game series returning, Andrew has been talking about some of his favorite things in sports video games all week. Here is what he has covered so far. 7 Players Who Missed Out on Being Cover Athletes For NCAA Football The Top 6 Songs From Sports Video Game Soundtracks The 5 Worst Cover Athletes In Sports Video Game History 6 Non-Star Athletes I Couldn't Be Stopped With In Video Games And now on the final Day of the week, he is talking about his favorite sports video games period. Here is what made the list. ESPN NFL 2K5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KftF9RqQq7o The GOAT football game. I could make the case it is the GOAT sports game. This game had it all. Fantasy Draft, legit gameplay, first-person mode, THE CRIB!!! You even got halftime shows from Chris Berman. The gameplay itself ruled, but all the bells and whistles made it the best. NBA 2K10 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQ_jXp1KOHI It was my favorite of the 2k franchises. It was so great that I kept my Xbox 360 for a LONG time just to keep playing it. The next 2k I bought was in the next decade. Madden 12 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5weEliUiYy8 No. It isn't my favorite because Peyton Hillis is on the cover. In my opinion, this was the last great Madden. The last Madden that you didn't hear complaints about 1 week into the game being released. NHL Hitz 02 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQZZ9yG4ZVw Not all of these games have to be the real deal. NHL Hitz was 3 on 3 arcade hockey where you could catch on fire and score from the logo. Want to kill a few hours with your buddies? This was always a safe choice NFL/NBA Street https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYrESCMQX0I I could do a write-up for both, but I want these two games married together. They are both iconic for what they brought. 3 on 3 hoops, 7 on 7 football, the locations you played, and the ways you could build your rosters in some of the game modes. I have never heard a person complain about either of these games MLB 2k11 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fs0Q_VzpocI Like NBA 2k10, this was my favorite of the franchise. It was also a game that kept me from buying another one for a long time. It also helps that Roy Halladay was on the cover and the Phillies were nasty to play with.
