Break time!

I used to play this cabinet during my breaks at Nintendo for some reason. Well, when others weren't playing it, that is. It was quite popular with the few bro's there. Actually, even if you hate American football like I do and have no idea what you're doing, it's a solidly fun game.

It's fun because it is ridiculous. There's some announcer dude yelling random things all the time. The players make bonkers plays every time, jump around incessantly, and do more violence than Mortal Kombat. The graphics are pretty great for the time and the only thing that really annoys me about it is the play selection sound (and that I don't know what plays do, really). It's a fast-paced and exciting version of a pretty boring and commercialized sport and you get a solid amount of play for your quarters. I can see why the bro's played it!

"That was uncalled for, but a lot of fun to watch."

If you like this page, you can buy me a coffee.
