That was the first time they had all the teams and all the players. The original Tecmo Bowl only had like fuckin’ eight players on the field because the dudes were too big to fit on the screen. There weren’t a lot of football games going on at the time. They got it right with Tecmo Super Bowl though, eleven players and all the teams.
I remember I played a season with the Chicago Bears and Neal Anderson got injured for like a month. It affected my Super Bowl, but I didn’t start the game over and I didn’t cheat. I did the right thing and played the whole season.
