013: Tecmo Super Bowl
(Originally recorded on August 21st, 2016)
Ready, down, hut, hut, hut, hut. Geeksquatch takes on one of the greatest sports video games of all time, Tecmo Super Bowl. Colin quarterbacks the conversation as the guys recall everything about the NES classic.
Released in 1991, TSB did so many things right that there’s an entire community of Techmobowlers that still play and participate in annual tournaments. With complete NFL rosters and the ability to play full seasons, Tecmo Super Bowl revolutionized the way that we play virtual football. And all this was done by a handful of Japanese developers that didn’t know anything about the sport before creating the game.
