As one teacher said every week in my high school,"IT'S FRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIDDDDAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY!!!!" There's so much diversity on this site I know there is more gaming love than with Madden NFL. I am a HUGE Super Mario fan and my favorite game is "Super Mario Bros. 3"!! What a Classic and a TrailBlazer!! The Worlds, Power-Ups, Koopalings and much More!! The same year that America got SMB3 with Giant World in 1990, the 1990 New York Giants won the Super Bowl! What is your favorite video game?

Sup BR? My favorite game of all time is also a sports game, but not Madden. Its Pro Evolution Soccer (formerly known as Winning Eleven). Madden and NBA Live round up my top 3.

I dont think you can put sports and other types of games in the same category. Most other games are movie-like, they have an intro, body and conclusion, while sports games... you can play forever! Specially with the franchise modes that are now so common in all EA releases. I will always remember the summer that I played two complete seasons of EA Sports MLB (The one with Randy Johnson in an Dbacks uniform in the cover). You heard it. more than 300 games, plus playoffs both years. That was during college, I had no girlfriend or anything, work and video games weer my only two pat times!

TMI?

I still have to say it's Goldeneye for the Nintendo 64. That game was ahead of it's time in so many ways, still might be the best FPS console game ever. It was better than anything else like it at the time, and it's probably better than most still out there today. Good thing I still have it.

Tecmo Super Bowl is still my favorite game of all-time. Contra is up there and some of the early Sega Genesis are part of the discussion.

I think th ebest baseball game was EA's MVP Baseball 2005. It had Manny Ramirez on the cover. I still play it on my PC with 2010 rosters downloaded from a community forum. Still a great game.

NBA Live has gone up and down a lot for me over the years. They can't seem to get it right for very long. The last couple of them have had some major issues that made it almost unplayable to me. I hope Elite 11 is a step in the right direction.

Tecmo Super Bowl was awesome. If you guys would like to play it there is a free site that lets you inside the browser. Lots of fun. http://nintendo8.com/game/321/tecmo_super_bowl/

Marcus Coleman, former NFL defensive back, comes up to my sports bar all the time and I see him playing this on a regular basis on his laptop. In fact maybe I can ask him if he's interested in talking football with us. I'll try to remember next time I run into him.

Good Answers Folks. I too like good sports games that have an impact beyond the console & GoldenEye was Legend all its own. Gotta Shout-Out to the Wii Sports (No Football!) but Love the Boxing and the Bowling Rules Hard!

Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time/Link to the Past, Super Metroid, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy III (VI, if you want to be like that), Jak II.

For sports games, Tecmo Super Bowl and the old NFL Blitz games (NFL Blitz 2000 was the one I owned, but I played the others on the N64 and loved them).

Tecmo Super Bowl will always be near and dear to my heart. However, I was a huge fan of Madden '98. It was the last Madden before the juke button and more sophisticated controls were used. It is simple, yet serves as a bridge between what we used to know (Tecmo) and what we love now (Madden '11).

I'm not a huge video game guy even though I feel like I should be for geek cred. One of the few series I really spend a lot of time on is Gran Turismo. GT3 probably wasted more of my life than other game.

I probably shouldn't admit this, but I haven't played Madden in years. Not that it isn't a great game, but I'm so bad at it I just lose interest. It also doesn't help that the release date coincides with me shutting down the ps3 for 6 months.

I don't blame you for leaving Madden, real gamers have realized the engine upgrades every 6 years. Most of the newer games require hours of time that is better spent with the family and friends.

GT3 in college was a constant beyond Madden and NCAA and then GTA came out (sniping people from a rooftop was fun after a 15 page paper). Eventually, I got the Indy car and would race it in any race whenever I needed a lot of money. I once did that race that was a full NASCAR race that was a ton of $$ if you won. I can't believe now that I took that much time out of my day to drive a fake car constantly. My thumbs hurt at the end. Got a lot of respect for real race car drivers that day.

Holy crap. I believe I just found a soul mate. FPS Football and Baseball Stars were awesome. The Civilization series wasted more hours than I care to remember. And the "Quest" games from Sierra still haven't been topped.

I'll add Ultima 1 through 7 on the NES to the mix. Those were fun.

Having grown up in the 90s and really getting my first experiences with Game Boy, one of my favorites is the first Pokemon series (Red/Blue/Yellow). Lately I've become a major retro gamer, even going so far as to have emulators of NES, Genesis, and even arcade machines. With respect to arcades, I think some of my favorites are Moon Patrol, Joust, and Spy Hunter.

SO glad that Shigeru Miyamoto is not retiring as originally speculated & reported. Thanks to CBS News for getting the latest. Mario is Family to me.

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-501465_162-57339320-501465/shigeru-miyamoto-rumors-of-retirement-not-true-says-nintendo-updated/

Shigeru Miyamoto rumors of retirement not true, says Nintendo [updated]

(CBS) - Whew! The man who brought us video games like Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda is not retiring.


Wired got an exclusive interview with Shigeru Miyamoto on Wednesday and declared the video game legend was stepping down. While it is a possibility, the man himself said it was not true.

"I'm not saying that I'm going to retire from game development altogether. What I mean by retiring is, retiring from my current position," Miyamoto told Wired.

Even the hint that Miyamoto would step down from his position at Nintendo Entertainment Analysis Development has fueled speculation over the company's future.

A spokesperson at Nintendo of America sent me this statement via email:



"Video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto's role at Nintendo is not changing. He will continue to be a driving force in Nintendo's development efforts. In discussing his priorities at Nintendo in a media interview, Mr. Miyamoto explained how he is encouraging the younger developers at the company to take more initiative and responsibility for developing software. He attempted to convey his priorities moving forward, inclusive of overseeing all video game development and ensuring the quality of all products. Mr. Miyamoto also discussed his desire to pursue fresh ideas and experiences of the kind that sparked his initial interest in video games."

"What I really want to do is be in the forefront of game development once again myself," Miyamoto told Wired. "Probably working on a smaller project with even younger developers. Or I might be interested in making something that I can make myself, by myself. Something really small."

Miyamoto went on to say that he hoped to work on projects that he could turn around in a year rather than five-years.

Call me crazy, but that doesn't sound like a declaration of retirement. It seems like Miyamoto is shirking the comforts of his success for a young developer's approach. Imagine that.

One of the many reason's Miyamoto has become a legend in the industry is because of his ability to think outside of the box. The video game icon started his career at Nintendo designing the company's first coin-operated arcade game, Sheriff.

Miyamoto's first big success came with Donkey Kong in 1981, a game that involved a gorilla and carpenter fighting over a girl. That carpenter, originally named Jumpman, went on to inspire Super Mario Bros. His portfolio also includes The Legend of Zelda, Star Fox and Wii Fit.

Front Page Sports Football (PC). Had "franchise mode" before Madden. Baseball Stars (NES), Civ 3 or 4 (PC), Gran Turismo 4 (PS3), and and of the Kings Quest or Police Quest games from Sierra (PC).

PumpknOne stole my list. Except for Gran Tourismo - I never played that one.

Yeah, no time for that stuff anymore. All my time is spent with football/fantasy/forums, school, and commuting to school.

I have many games that I still haven't opened. With me, many games have a high replay value. Gears of War 3 is out now, but I still haven't popped open GoW2. I play online with my friends almost weekly. We play Halo, GoW, COD, SW Battlefront2 and SoCom. I used to play World of Warcraft, but I haven't played much since it's been watered down for noobs now. I just log in to jerk around a bit.

I still play Star Wars Battlefront 2from time to time. I LOVE that game. The star fighter battles are top notch and ilove the sheer volume of truly intelligent AI.

I love the battlefront 1. I'd just pick a spot somewhere and snipe people. I've tried battlefront 2 a few times years ago, I was never very good at the flying missions. Would probably be better now.

The flying missions are insanely difficult. I'm terrible at dogfighting. If I'm doing galactic conquest and need to destroy the space ship, I just choose a bomber and ignore the fighter ships trying to kill me. Or I just land on their ship and go bananas with a blaster. I love to snipe in that game too, very simple and fun. Some great spots to snipe on Tattooine, Kashyyyk, and Hoth.

He's gotta be. It took me about 4 years to perfect that game haha. I'm not a gamer really, but I do love those kinds of games and grew up playing variations of 1st or 3rd person shooters.

All you gamers will laugh, probably pretty hard, but I have a ps3 that has never, ever been used to play a game. Only networked music and as a blu ray player.

After work and my fiancee I have to choose how i spend my "me" time. Football or gaming? It's clear where I've made my choice. However the ps3 is damn fast at loading blu ray movies, and I love the networking option for music..

Lol I'm 22 and I've never owned a PS3, xbox, or Wii. I got my PS2 back in 2001 and never got anything else. I like video games enough to play maybe 10 hours every 2 months, but I get bored quickly with it.
