    Default Evolution of the Hockey Video Game

    Since there has been a lot of talk about the new NHL 2K8 vs EA NHL 08 I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the evolution of the hockey video game. While searching for a site, I came across this:

    Very cool. Be sure to take 10 minutes and look at all the years. I have some vivid memories of actually playing most of these games.

    To all you video game fans: Enjoy the trek down memory lane.

    P.S. I'm a newbie! Sorry, I just noticed that I posted this to the wrong forum. Please forgive...or if a Mod can move it that would be great.

    I remember playing some of those as well. It also made me think of this classic clip

    That was awesome.

    I still have this one hiding in the basement. I'll have to break it out some day just to see how far the games have advanced in 14 years:

    I remember NHL 95, for genisis. It was so easy to score. All you had to do was go benind the net and come into the slot and either shoot or set up for a one timer. i scored 99 goals one time.
    Live from Las Vegas....All Sarcasm all the time!!!!

    I probably played Blades of Steel 5,000,000 times before it died...

    I'm still bitter

    This game was responsible for my being a hockey fan. I had no idea how hockey was played, but I bought a SNES and thought NHL '93 looked fun. Played the game, decided to catch a few Kings games on TV... and now here I am, 15 years later (the game was released in '92), a die-hard Kings fan.
