Anybody else here play video game hockey?

I go all the way back to "Blades of Steel" on the old NES, but my glory days were the Sega Genesis games of the mid-90s, like NHL 95 & 96, as well as 2000 on the PC. I'm also partial to some of the newer games, but I'm stuck with a PS2, so my favorite "Recents" are NHL 09 and NHL2k10. The 2k series, in particular, is fun because you can unlock classic teams and program players in, so on 2k10, I've recreated the full rosters for both the 1980 USA and Soviet teams. It's a blast to throw into International Tournament mode and have at it! What do u guys play?!?!

I play NHL09 on PS2 and Wayne Gretzky's NHL for the WII. That one is a workout, but fun.

That's the one. Guess it's called NHL Slapshot. It is fun, but like I said, it's a workout. 3-4 games and I'm pretty well done for the day on that one.

Back in the early 80's I recorded a score of 112-110 on this...

Mattel Electronics Handheld Hockey

Otherwise no except for maybe Nintendo hockey a couple times. I played table top (North Stars vs. Blues, metal and plastic player versions), air hockey, phoos ball and bubble hockey games growing up. My favorite was Super Stick - Super Jock hockey player. You slammed his head and he let off a slap shot.

I'm TERRIBLE at sports video games, but I love air hockey.

Gotta have the latest NHL! haha

Nothing quite like Drew LeBlanc setting up Ben Hanowski in the pros, en route to a Wild Cup!

Though I'm gonna have to start anew soon, as by the final Roster Update there should be a veritable gold mine of Huskies available in-game (Fedz, Dowd, Gravel, Lee, Jensen) :lol:

Though if (BIG if with how EA seems to work) Fedz does get added I'll be able to save sixty bucks next year and not buy NHL 15.
