The 25 Best Virtual Athletes In Video Games

12. Lawrence Taylor

Game: Tecmo Super Bowl

Before Lawrence Taylor went on trial for sex with an underage prostitute he was a dynamo in Tecmo Super Bowl (oh and also he was rated No. 3 on NFL Network's top 100 players of all time).

He was capable of anything from 8 sack games, and running down guys 40 yards away, to shutting down the kicking game by blocking field goals and extra points. He was so fast it seemed even his video game counterpart was on speed. In a game with more than its fair share of offensive legends like Randall Cunningham, Barry Sanders, Jerry Rice and Joe Montana, Taylor was the ultimate equalizer giving the Giants the greatest defensive player in the game and even gave them a puncher's chance to hold Bo Jackson under 500 yards.
