Racketboy Podcast #36 – Retro Sports Games Roundtable


This episode of the show features our stalwart hosts in a roundtable discussion with two expert corespondents on the subject of retro sports video games. Forum members retrosportsgamer (of Retro Sports Gamer World) and sevin0seven joins us to run down our favorite 8-bit and 16-bit titles, talk about what makes a great sports video game, what causes them to be ignored by so many retro gamers, and how they’ve changed over the years. John’s Tradition Sports expertise proves useful, Dave’s strange love for Slam City with Scottie Pippen is explained, sevin0seven laments the lack of hadoukens in Mike Tyson’s Punch Out, and retrosportsgamer explains the Tradewest effect.
