I could never do a list like this because there are far too many games I would want to list. However, I am really happy to see RC Pro Am. One of my favorite games.

and RBI Baseball, another one of my top games. I thought the list before was my favorite, but this one is even better. Throw in Blades of Steel for good measure and most my favorite sports games are accounted for.

I spent many days playing RBI and RC pro AM, NES actually had some really good sports titles for the time..

  • Super Spike V'ball
  • Super Mario 3
  • Bases Loaded 2
  • Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers
  • Ducktales
  • Legend of Zelda
  • Castlevania 2 Simons Quest

Probably my favourites of all those are Super Spike V'Ball and Bases Loaded 2. I don't even like volleyball or baseball or even sports games much, but loved these games as a kid. I still play them often. I especially like Volleyball when in video games, but theres been so few decent ones to ever release. Outlaw Volleyball was alright, and Summer Heat beach volleyball was pretty good as well. But they could do better if they just went back to the basics of Super Spike V'Ball and built a game outward from that. Outlaw was cool since it had a skill gain system, but the game was boring after a few hours because there were so few game modes or objectives to do.

Why am i sidetracking to talk so much about volleyball? Time for my meds.
