    NBA Showtime and the original NFL Blitz, both on N64 - Both have elite head-to-head multiplayer that's much deeper than it originally appears, giving them basically unlimited replay value

    Ken Griffey Jr.’s Slugfest for N64 was an elite game. Finished an entire season on dynasty, 162-0.

    Does Nintendo offer multiplayer support for old games like these? I would buy whatever their latest console is if I could play the original Blitz online against other people

    Pretty much all of the Mario themed sports games were awesome. The one-off soccer game for the gamecube back in the day was amazing.

    Also NHL Hitz circa 2000-03
