The Hockeywood Video Game Hall of Fame presents: Nintendo's Ice Hockey
This afternoon, I was greeted by Yahoo's Puck Daddy's news that EA Sports' newly-released NBA Jam-styled "3-on-3 NHL Arcade" has debuted to, um, middling reviews ('I can't recommend this game to anyone, including hockey fans.' said GameFocus. 'The over-the-top gameplay is a good fit, but it is a bit unimaginative,' states IGN.).
It was sort of disappointing news, since I like any kind of sport video game, even dumb ones. And since I'm probably the last gamer on the face of the planet without a PS3 or XBox, I'm missing out anyway to do my own review. So, I figured rather than forking over $300 for a new cosnole, I'd just hop in my WayBack Machine, and do a series of articles on some of the greatest hockey video games of all time. Not only that, but I'm going to create the Hockeywood Video Game Hall of Fame, aptly named the HVGHOF. Yeah, that's not a mouthful.
And the best place to start would have to be the beginning, at least for me. And that journey starts on the Nintendo, in a little game called called... Ice Hockey.
