3 Words: Mutant League Football.

Some of the best times my buddies and I had on the Genesis was ML Football & Hockey. General Chaos was a frickin' blast too. I'm still holding out hope that the Wii's VC will allow remote multiplayer and these games make it down.

Also, I'm a HUGE Wing Commander fan, but I've never understood how that works on a console, let alone a portable. Luckily I have DosBox for that.

I'd love to have a compilation of their early Genesis sports titles, like NHL Hockey, Lakers vs Celtics, Jordan vs Bird, etc. But I suppose that might be tricky license-wise due to the old rosters and team names, etc. even though they curently own all the league licenses.

Keep hope alive! I can see this also coming out on the consoles. Everyone else is doing these things, why not EA?

Mutant League Football is great, but Mutant League Hockey is the greatest. I guess they had to save something for Vol. II.

Syndicate!

Man, I wish I still had my PSP. These would be killer games on Xbox Live Arcade.

Don't have a PSP but would consider it if they did an old school comp with EA NHL Hockey on it

EA did put NHL 2000 out for the Gameboy (which I believe was the same as NHL 96). It just included the old rosters. Only problem is gameplay speed was too fast.

if not for the PSP it would be a good idea to put out for the DS and have the space between each screen be the red line

I wouldn't get so excited. All the games will be the console versions not the pc. So it will be the snes version of Ultima 7 and the genesis version of syndicate. I never played these on console, but I doubt the comparision to the pc versions is all that favourable.

When I saw the title of this old bumped thread, I thought I might have to get a PSP so I could play some classic EA titles like Archon and MULE. That was a close one. For those who know and enjoy these games, I hope it does hit some other platform. I just don't know any of these games to miss them.
