Yesterday was a pretty big day in the hockey video gaming world, as EA Sports NHL 10 and 2K Games NHL 2K10 were both released:
Buy NHL 10 by EA Sports:
Amazon.ca | Playstation 3 or Xbox 360|
Amazon.com | Playstation 3 or Xbox 360 |
Buy NHL 2K10 by 2K Games
Amazon.ca | Playstation 3 or Xbox 360 or Nintendo Wii|
Amazon.com | Playstation 3 or Xbox 360 or Nintendo Wii|
And that's not even why yesterday was such a big day in the history of hockey video games. The reason was because now we have a definitive history of hockey video games courtesy of PensBlog.
They even included my favorite game as a kid: Wayne Gretzky Hockey by Bethesda. PensBlog certainly was not very complimentary of it, calling it so "terrible" that they "want to kill ourselves." I really enjoyed that game, being able to switch from player to player and then demand a pass from the whoever has the puck. My breakout schemes would have made Scotty Bowman proud.
By the way, this Odyssey image to the right is believed to be the first hockey video game.
