    The voice in that was the best: "Do-bull dre-bull."

    Haha! And gotta love the half-National Anthem before every game.

    I remember what an innovation it was when Super Tecmo Bowl had ALL of the teams and you could play a season! Dropped my college GPA significantly.

    I used to kick the computer's ass at the Basketball game in Atari 2600.

    Whenever you got ahead by more than 4, the computer player started having spastic tics. Once I was ahead by 12, and it was like playing against the caffeinated version of Cornholio.

    The garbled voice in the "Blades of Steel" into was pretty sweet, too.

    I once rushed for 900 yards in one game with Emmitt Smith on NFL 94 on Super nintendo. Also, the Rangers pitching staff on the Original Ken Griffey Jr. baseball had a team ERA under 0.50 for the whole season. In short, unless it was a homer,  you weren't scoring. My defense was impregnable.

    But my best achievement came one drunken night my sophomore year of college. We were playing the original WWF game for Playstation, the one where you had to be a prodigy to do a body slam, much less the Rock Bottom. Anyhoo, I made some ugly fat wrestler a week before, but it got deleted, unknownst to me. I tried to find it, hit the wrong button, and ended up with Default, a 150-pound white dude in black underwear.

    My friend was the bitch-ass Shamrock with his endless boring grapple holds. My friend is also a video-game bitch, who naturally excels at the damn things. And he gets every break to boot. So the match starts, and I mash buttons. I somehow get the upperhand and get Shamrock out of the ring, where I proceed to beat him down for exactly 9.5 seconds. Jump in before the count of 10, and voila, DEFAULT WINS, MOTHERFUCKERS! That's what I shouted in my drunken stupor, before everyone else in the house told me to shut up. I told them to go to hell, I won with default.

    Me = dork.

    Still the only basketball game where you could climb the basket standards.

    Kind of like Egypt and the Pyramids, even though we've advanced, we cannot possibly understand that primitive pixelated technology.

    Does Joust count as a sport? I got a million on that once.

    Man, does that get tedious after a while.

    The full season stat tracking was awesome, too...complete with "realistic" mugshots.

    A buddy of mine, playing with the mid 90s Washington Bullets, shot like 85 percent against me in NBA '96 (?) once, and I was playing straight up, not letting him score. Damndest thing, because I usually beat him pretty soundly in that game.

    I'd hate to see how good his stats would be if he were not in "bad" condition.
