man, TechmoBowl, the original and only the original, was the best. trying to guess which of the 4 plays were being run. Pick the right defense, and your opponent feels the force of 11 players tackling him at once. Unless they were SF and ran the TE post to Russ Francis... That play was unstoppable, even if you picked it.

Ronnie Lot running crazy all over the field, Bo Jackson fast as hell. Those were great times.

Whats everyones scoring record on the original Tecmo? My best score ever was 77-0... Lost a bet that time that I could score 80. Last play Ronnie Lot was returning an interception and got stopped at like the 5 when time was out. Ohhhh the humanity.

I still have both my NES and my Atari 2600. Zelda was my favorite game for the NES, but my favorite sports game was Baseball Stars. Also, River City Ransom and Super Dodgeball both were real fun. My mom still has an original pong machine somewhere in her attic. Now that is old school ;-D

Good ol' NES days..........


I actually was fortunate enough to hold onto my collection over the years and in the past 5 upgraded it a lil.

Currently I have 290 different NES games(no dups) and every damn accessory u can imagine.

A couple years ago me and some guys decided to replenish this collection and we built three, 5 foot tall standing custom NES shelves, each row fits about 12 games.....Flippin looks good, if any of you are interested in making one you can PM me and I will get some digital pics of them.

But for games.....All-time Fav's are all 3 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Tecmo Bowl (the 1st one)

To this day me and the guys still get hella drunk and bust out some mean Tecmo Bowl action, best part is there is only 4 plays in the game, makes it one tough bitch. :-D

If any of you have any questions about games or accessories you can ask me, I have about everything except Bubble Bath Babes the game......my entire collection is worth about $3K

I remember that if you were thr Giants and had the O.G. LT noone could score a extra point let alone a field goal with that crackheaded moinster lineing up over center a dicing on the ball on the set. Tecmo was cool- but Superbowl was a ton better (could finaly play all the teams and could change your plays.

RBI baseball The first one (Tiger were great in that game '85. Bring in Bill "Mad Dog" Matlock off the bench with runners on in the later innings was an instant Homerun. You could also play as Houson and have Nolan Ryan and M. Scott combine for nothing but 100 mph fast balls for the whole game (about 4 inning each)

IWho needs all those games. I only have 5 and they are all the ones you need.

1.Techmoball
2.Techmo Superbowl
3.RBI base Baseball
4.Double Dribble*
5.The Legendary Black Bass**

*Was the New York Team Mascot a Joint or a Rubber? To this day it still bothers me.

**I cant believe that no one has mentioned The Black Bass. The game was beyond cool. NES 1st fishing game. I live in michigan and love fishing, but I cant stand Ice fishing so how else am I going to enjoy the thrill of the catch?


I gathered up about twenty controllers at one point. Techmo can get quite heated and many a controller has been sacraficed after the mysterious X play that often happened in the endzone (usually when a long pass play was called in the redzone and you wait to long to hit your reciever.
