NHL.com Celebrates The 20th Anniversary Of The Iconic NHL '94
I know this isn't PlayStation-related but we often cover general gaming news, especially when it involves iconic names and landmark titles.
If you check NHL.com, you will find a piece detailing the legendary status of NHL '94 and celebrating the game's 20th anniversary. Yep, 20 years.
For those of you who don't know, NHL '94 was the first installment in the series to include real team names, logos and rosters. It was also one of the most popular games of its day, as it managed to ensnare even non-hockey followers (such as myself) in a way nobody had seen since Blades of Steel on the NES. The article also cites former Chicago Blackhawks star Jeremy Roenick, who was a beast on the ice. He says that people will still come up to him and mention the '94 hockey game.
I have this game for the SNES and I still play it from time to time. I really do. It's just one of those old games that never seems to get old, and is always fun. I always play as the Boston Bruins because I find I can really dominate with them; I think my best score ever was 17-0 and that's pretty good considering there were only 5-minute periods and the seconds weren't really seconds. Remember that? They were like half-seconds.
Anyway, I just thought some people would want a trip down good ol' memory lane. I know I did. :)
