15. Coach K basketball (SEGA GENESIS)
It was my official opening to playing any college basketball games on the gaming system, of course i wasn't you're typical noob and took DUKE, i proudly ran through my homies with Maryland Terrapins and JOE SMITH was a BEAST!!!!!!! Not to mention the NBA live 95 format style.
14. Deion Sanders PRIMETIME football (Sega Genesis)
I love this game, because i was a STAN of Deion's, this was a new look football game even though we all witnessed NFL 94 with Joe Montana on the cover, but this the first game i had a chance to not only play with prime time on my BELOVED cowboys, i could make trades and even create myself on the game! BY THE WAY TRUE FACT I STILL have this game with the BOX,MANUAL, etc!
13. Greatest Heavyweights (SEGA GENESIS)
Even though I should have put REAL DEAL HOLYFIELD boxing on here, i went with this game due to fact being a 10 year old in 1994 getting the game for my birthday, also seeing the fact i get to fight with all the LEGENDS my grandfather raved about. This game was phone of course anyone could beast with Ali because of height projectile, but i decided to create a Mike Tyson and go to WORK!
12. NBA Live 2000 (Playstation 1)
Another Legendary cover headliner with the fact i had a chance to play with MJ again.. HE was no longer considered PLAYER 99. It took me MONTHS to be MJ, finally i did it with GLEN RICE. The Soundtrack was very dope with the likes of Naughty By Nature with O.P.P and presentation was on point!
11. Tony Hawks Pro Skater (N64 and Dreamcast)
First off i want to give kudos to my childhood homies Richard Simms Jr and Tawaine Hall for introducing to the world of skate boarding and one of my first personal purchases (money by job) was this game.. I was a little skeptical about this game, new era of X games and of course the failures of Excite bike didnt HELP. But this game was classic, i remember i love doing Christ Air's, Kick Flips and Varial's wtih the likes of Bucky Lasek and Geoff Rowley!
10. Hardball (sega genesis)
MAN THIS WAS MY GAME!!!! I remembered when they had no real players on the original one, than in 1994 they dropped arguably my favorite baseball game ever.. i could edit the rosters plus my rangers team was stacked and i made DAVID HULSE a MVP! REAL TALK!
9. Lakers Vs Celtics and the NBA playoffs (Sega Genesis)
MAN this one really hurts honestly this one series could be my top 3 of all time but the times have changed and it wasn't enough teams on this game.. All though by default i ran with the bulls and perfected Jordans special reverse layup i had love for a Boston Celtics team and a certain player, not bird not mchale or parrish but freaking KEVIN GAMBLE, this game had two more to its series Bulls vs Lakers (Which i have box set) and Bulls vs Blazers (box set as well) than it became NBA showdown 94 and Live series came to life!
8.NBA JAM TE (ARCADE,SEGA GENESIS, SUPER NES)
YEP i didn't put the GOAT version on here, i put this one here simply for the fact JASON KIDD and GRANT HILL were on the game. I used to go off with Reggie Miller with the corner 3s. This game will forever hold a place in my gamer's heart!
7.Triple Play Baseball (PLAYSTATION 1)
Yep this was a great game.. this was the start of 3D baseball of course I don't have MLB the show on my list because i don't PLAY playstation gaming at all. The cover shows a young juiced up Jason Giambi and i ran with my rangers still. Of course during this time i was still gloating over Ken Griffey Jr Baseball on n64
6. NFL John Madden Football (SEGA GENESIS)
Where that TRUCK come from? BOOM! the classic sound effects this game bought and the long years of progression this game can make! Still today Madden stands strong to dedicated NFL fans like myself. I can only hope the MADDEN franchise will get better for the NEXT GEN consoles gets better and better. They've seemed to take a break the last few years due to no competition and i think with next gens coming soon they will evolve!
5. FIFA 12 (FIFA SERIES) (XBOX 360)
I KNOW I'M LATE! so what! I may not be the biggest soccer fan but since i purchased FIFA 12 i will now be a huge supporter of this great sports game. The game play is fluid and the excitement of doing the team up games are a thrill now all i have to do is learn positions and who's the best of the best!
4. NHL 94 (Sega Genesis)
Even though i played the original NHL HOCKEY on Sega, this 94 version was and still today the GOAT of all hockey games. Of course growing up in Texas the Stars were new to the area and they had this young superstar by the name of Mike Modano! This game introduced me to what line changes are, how important the power play is and also learn the greatness to the likes of Gretzky, Super Mario, and 100 mph slap shot himself Brett Hull, Thank you EA for this blessing,and by the way i have the box set of this game on Sega genesis today!
3. Tecmo Bowl (NINTENDO)
Why not? Even though this game has the biggest NOOB glitch ever BO JACKSON and by the way i to this date have only played with BO one time! I was so thrilled to play with Eric Dickerson even the young Dallas Cowboys i forgot about him! Thank God Tecmo Bowl wasnt online else i would be 0-99 vs the Bo Jackson's! Still today this game is used for CD COVERs, and my Screen savers around the entertainment industry!
2. ESPN NFL 2K5 (NFL 2K SERIES) (DREAMCAST,XBOX360,PS2/3)
FIRST OFF THIS GAME IN PARTICULAR HAS THE BEST PRESENTATION, ever for any sports game to this date.What video game had video highlights at halftime as well as after game highlights from across the league.. Not mention the swami himself Chris Berman is on the game. The NFL 2K series needs to make a come back to main stream gaming Madden has gotten very dull and needs major improvements, 2K has always been my choice of sports gaming no matter what console generation I still have my copy of ESPN 2k5 as well as the NFL 2K OG copy with Mr. Straight Cash Homie himself RANDY MOSS!
1.NBA 2K series (XBOX 360,Dreamcast,PS2/3,XBOX)
Man where do i start? From the first day i got my sega dreamcast i remember seeing the great allen iverson on the cover and i was sold. It was a fresh start from the B.S NBA live put out in 2001 so i started off with this game, and lets say 14 years later i'm still standing strong with NBA 2k as the best sports series ever! They officially tipped the iceberg in the last two 2ks by adding Jordan and other legends and of couse 2k13 brought in the USA team of 2012 and THE GREATEST TEAM EVER put together 1992 DREAM TEAM, last time i saw the dream team on a game was on the SEGA GENESIS JOINT i had and i still own today..
