The Greatest Sports Video Games of All Time (maybe)- Tecmo Super Bowl for Playstation 1

Let’s take a look at Tecmo Super Bowl for the Playstation 1. This was the last Tecmo football game to have the official NFL license. It was not loved when it came out but I think history should look more fondly on the game than it does. Tecmo Super Bowl came out during an onslaught of American Football games. It was competing with NFL Gameday and Madden Football, as well as Konami’s Full Contact Football. Tecmo Super Bowl came out in 1996 with rosters based on the ‘94–95 season. This game came out during a tumultuous time for me, the Browns were murdered by Art Modell and then they reanimated the corpse in Baltimore. It hurts my heart to play this era of games but here we are. This was one of the first games to have the Baltimore Ravens. Does Tecmo Super Bowl have the same magic that it’s predecessors did? After Tecmo Super Bowl III Final Edition for the SNES and Genesis, the series really felt it peaked. Spoiler alert, it did peak at those games but let’s look at why this one isn’t as bad as people think.
