Longing for the Days of the 2600...

Chest Bumps to the folks at Gamespot:

So Donavan McNabb will be the face of Madden 2006. Actually, it looks like the name will be Madden NFL 06, due to the fact that EA snapped up exclusive rights to the league late last year.

That got me to thinking...

Remember when almost every game company had their own football game? Just off the top of my head I can think of:

  • Tecmo Bowl
  • NFL Blitz
  • High Impact Football
  • NFL Football 94 Starring Joe Montana
  • TV Sports Football
  • Jerry Glanville's Pigskin FootBrawl
  • NFL Gameday
  • NFL Fever
  • NFL Quarterback Club
  • Mike Ditka Power Football

By the way, the first ever Madden Football game was designed for the Apple II.

Take Care,

Mike G.
