Somehow, the early 2000s are almost a decade and a half behind us, but that era created some of the most legendary sports video games to ever be released. That was long before we were 20 years deep into the same series cycles that no longer feature as much innovation and depth to them. Not to mention, the series that have been forgotten or still awaiting a comeback.
Now, this list isn’t ranked on which game is the best, because it’s impossible to do based on your favorite sports and how some of these games were constructed.
Just a nice trip down memory lane of some of the sports games that shaped our lives in one way or another.
