Worst NES Games Ever No. 1 — 10-Yard Fight
We’d forgive an ancient football game for the inability to include the proper number of players on the field, but it’s tougher to overlook forgetting to include things like correct scoring and plays.
This rugby-like abomination avoids a soundtrack in favor of the repetitive sounds of players’ footsteps and dives. Kickoffs bizarrely pit a 5-player defense against an all-but unstoppable 9-player return team. Things get easier for the defense should it be lucky enough to somehow tackle a ball carrier, because the offense is limited to a triple-option attack that gets fewer points depending on how long it takes to score.
We remember being all giddy about getting to play football on our new NES, only to be crushed that there was nothing close to football in the game.
