if you have them separated by "then," -- seemingly to show an order of preference -- can they really be tied? I think not.

....F**k you....Stop posting.

I'll pass on both. thanks?

I think it's interesting that segathon's list features zero NHL '94 incarnations and that two-way KinGraph's has no SNES NHL '94... not even in the honorable mentions!

off to play some Lockout Simulator!

Intellivision Football was revolutionary at the time.

Oh yes.

Someone else old enough to remember.

Loved this game.

Run to the top and throwback to the bottom of the screen.

I think I learned how to read/run the option in real football so well from the hours of Intellivision Football.

Baseball and Basketball were actually pretty good too.

Hockey was terrible and then you Had B-17 Bomber!

I'd definitely add Barcelona Summer Games '92 and Dusty Diamond's All-Star Softball (both from NES), but Raph and I have basically the same list. I still run some summer games every now and then. 92-94 was the wheelhouse for NES games.

Yes! And I should have added that to my list...spent crazy quarters on that game. I loved the end when you couldn't understand Andre:

MDM: "I'll put you to sleep with my million dollar dream"

Andre: "NO BLOUB CAN BLEEB BE OF COSS"

Note, there was WWF Superstars (where Andre and DiBiase were last match), and then came WWF Wrestlefest, where you can do tag team or Royal Rumble. Both incredible games.

if you like WWF arcade games try Fire Pro Wrestling Returns for PS2. Their used to be a site devoted to it but looks like its down now. Plays a lot like those old arcade games. I download a bunch of rosters 80 WWF, 90 WCW, old AWA and even old NEW Pro Wrestling rosters.

1) NHL 2K5

2) NHL 94

3)NHL Hitz 2002

NHL 2K5 is unbeatable by a landslide. The graphics were ahead of its time, physics were good, I liked the feature of historic themes, and of course, the presentation done by ESPN.

NHL 94 is another amazing game. It's arcadish feeling will have me playing for hours, and the ROMs make it even better (shoutout to Naples39).

NHL Hitz 2002, both combined, fun game, but not close to the top 2.
