Best NHL game?

Post #1 by Dr_Chimera » Sat May 29, 2021 12:31 am

I remember playing NHL 99 and 2002 on the PC when I was younger. A lot of fun. Simple, straightforward gameplay. No fancy shit.

Thinking of purchasing a few of the old EA games from 10+ years ago. Which did you like the most?

Honestly not trying to be an ass, but the ones I had (in that era) were 98 and 2002 (the latter I am unsure of). Hundreds of hours of good clean fun with my good bud J~~~~~ while we should have instread been preparing for matriculation.

In my memory NHL 06 is 2002 with updated rosters. : )

I imagine SEGA’s NHL 2K3 has been ported to PC by now, so you might consider looking for that as well.
Send him to the AHL and tell him: "This is your team now. You have three years to win a championship or at least seriously push for it".

EA NHL 2001-2008

NHL Breakaway 98 on N64 was so bad, but brings back so many memories.

That beat will pop in my head at the most random times.

Brian Leetch was absolutely OP.

96. The last hurrah of the first great EA NHL engine. The series would never really improve after that.

94. Probably the most well balanced of those games. Lacks fights.

92. More commonly known as just plain old NHL Hockey on the Genesis is immensely enjoyable as well. Often overlooked
