Tecmo Bowl is a series of football-themed video games developed by Tecmo. The games are notable because the designers took liberties with the sport resulting in something that is closer to a video game than a simulation. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the Tecmo Bowl games were the most popular football video games on the market, not just because they are good games, but also because they were licensed by the NFL and had real teams and player names. In the mid-1990s, players began to appreciate games that more closely simulated the actual sport, and the Tecmo Bowl series waned in popularity.


If I recall correctly, my first experience with Tecmo Bowl was from my step-brothers bringing the game over when they came to visit from Illinois. the game. My brother and step-brothers loved both football and video games, so it was a guarantee that they would adore Tecmo Bowl.
