That Was An 11.1842

Happy Wednesday and Happy start to the NHL season. Don't watch hockey you say? Then what is wrong with you? And that just isn't my Canadian self speaking. I hadthis in mind when I came up with the topic for this week's list. Sports games are still some of the best games to play with others. More fun when in the same room then online, but still they are some of the best. They are about showing up your opponent in every way you possibly can just so you can throw it in their face at a later date. I know it really is something. So here you have it my top 5 favourite sports games.

5. WWF Attitude

Now some probably won't even consider this a sports game. Honestly I don't really care if you do or not. I think what this game did had an impact on all sports game which came after. The create wrestler component of this game was exceptional for the time and really expanded on a "meh" features from all other games at the time. This plus being able to go 4 player nuts made this game a great get together game at any time. 

4. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2003 

I don't think there has ever been a bad Tiger Woods game, but this one in my eyes is the runaway winner as the best of the bunch. The game was channeling and ridiculous at other moments. Not sure I ever had a bad time playing the game.

3. Wii Sports Resort

Who really hasn't played Wii Sports Resort? Whatever game you choose that day is never a bad choice. Not to mention it really is something you can play anywhere with anyone and be fun. Now not really the most fun game alone, but who really plays it alone anyway? 

2. NHL 98

The first NHL to actually try to have player's faces be part of the game. At times it looked silly but it made it feel more real. This game finally had better control over the simple things of the game, which made the skill of actually playing it something which had some importance.

1.  NBA Street Vol.2

If you were ever looking for a channeling, ridiculous, aburb fun game with the craziest person as your commentator this is the game. Now the first game was great but the second took a wining formula and made it even better. I really hate basketball games and this game is beyond amazing and still to this day is stupid fun.

There you have it. This week's list and I am sure there will be loads of arguments about games being left off my list. That though is the best part it is my list.
