  1. I'd REALLY love to see NHL '94 on XBOX Live...
  2. If any of you guys would like custom-made shirts, I make them...get in touch with me and tell me what you'd like...I don't ask for nearly what they are asking...
  3. Yes, that's correct...Electronic Arts ran the Buy 2, Get 1 Free promo throughout the first couple of years. I ordered John Madden Football and pre-ordered NHL Hockey and I selected PGA Tour Golf as the free game. I still have all three. I believe Road Rash was also part of that list...
  4. I have this book...I think it was the one and only guide they ever made for the series back then...it covers the Genesis, SNES and PC versions.
  5. Here are some other classic Electronic Arts ads for the games during those times: Lakers vs. Celtics & the NBA Playoffs: John Madden Football: USA Basketball: PGA Tour Golf:
  6. Yeah man, thanks...great memories. I remember the days of going into Electronics Boutique, Babbage's and Toys R Us to buy my games. I'm with you on the jumps in gaming platforms. The Genesis really was a huge launching pad for EA into console games, and their sports games shined on the Genesis. I have a ton of those old great games they made, including games of sports I've never even card about, such as soccer & rugby. They were such fun games to play, and the same went for the NHL series back then. They were also such easy games to pick up and play, making them appealing to those non-sports fans.
  7. Here's the Electronic Arts ad for NHLPA Hockey '93...
  8. Quick story about this ad - I used to get GamePro Magazine back in 1991. I got an issue with a Spider-man game on the cover being featured and when I opened the cover, that ad was in it. I was floored and had never been so excited about a video game coming out. I carried that magazine around all the time just staring at the two-page ad. Up until that point, the only two hockey games for the NES and Genesis were Blades of Steel and Nintendo Ice Hockey, so this was a huge jump in terms of both graphics and a different point of view. A video hockey game with REAL NHL teams and their logos, plus real players. I already had a Sega Genesis (one look at the back of the John Madden Football box for the Genesis and I traded in the NES!) and back then there was no web, so you either pre-ordered games in the store or by phone. I was so obsessed about this game that I immediately pre-ordered it by phone and would call "Electronic Arts Direct" every week to see if a different person would give me a different release date for the game. PLUS during these first couple of years, if you ordered games thru Electronic Arts Direct, you'd receive the game in the mail about a day or two before it hit store shelves. I called that phone number so many times that I STILL remember the phone number: 1-800-245-4525. Here's a scan of that GamePro Magazine cover (August 1991 edition)...yes, I still have that magazine - GREAT MEMORIES!
  9. Actually it's the correct song, just the wrong image for the game. NHL ''91 had the same msuci but it was sped up, just like the game was...
  10. Hey guys, sorry I haven't been on these boards in ages...I can make the shirts for you if you'd like, let me know what you'd like. I'll keep my eye on the forums more closely...
