Alabama Football looks good in 4k and 1080p but for old school Bama fans this 8 bit version will take you back in the day.
There is no “Tostitos Tecmo Bowl.” It’s not sponsored by AT&T. The halftime show is not presented by AllState Insurance. For fans that grew up in the 80’s there’s no need to explain why watching the Top 5 Bama plays of All Time in original Nintendo 8 bit graphics is awesome.
This paragraph isn’t for them. It’s for you – the dude who thinks the term “cordless phone” is redundant and has never felt the anxiety that comes with a girl’s dad answering after rotary dialing her last digit.
Tecmo Bowl was one of the first playable football video games ever. It may look archaic by today’s standards but prior to Nintendo putting this on the market the only options were paper football, Atari and metal football field games that vibrated more than Mia Khalifa’s carry on luggage.
Now, check this out:
The top five 8-bit Alabama Football plays in this video played and produced by friend of the site and all around awesome guy @Kyemcvideo are:
#5 circa 1992: Antonio Langham’s CLUTCH interception against Florida in the 1992 SEC Championship Game that sealed Bama’s matchup in the national championship game against the Miami Hurricanes and a 12th national championship for the Tide
#4 circa 2015: Kenyan Drake’s electric 95-yard kick return for a touchdown in the 2015 national championship game against Clemson when Bama brought home a 16th national title.
#3 circa 1967: Kenny “The Snake” Stabler’s “Run in the Mud” vs. Auburn in the 1967 Iron Bowl
