Games like this rarely happened when you played the Chicago Blackhawks
People always love nostalgia. For hockey and video game lovers, one item that gives many that feeling of nostalgia is NHL 94 which was released in 1993.
Now, I was the ripe age of three when this game came out, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t spend a bulk of my childhood playing this game. In fact, aside of Sonic the Hedgehog, NHL 94 on the Sega Genesis was the only game I had for the system from the time I was five to seven years old. It was a game I never got bored with, and still play from time to time to this day.
Of course, why wouldn’t you still want to play this game. It was the first to implement the use of a one-timer which was basically a sure goal every single time. Let’s not forget the other great “glitch” goals in this one. You know, the dash from the corner to the front of the net which you see in the video above produced by NHL.com; the wrap-around goal which entailed skating around the net three or four times before the goalie was out of position which led to an easy goal.
I remember there were two teams that were unplayable whenever I would sit down with friends and play: Chicago and Pittsburgh. They were just too good so it became unfair to play as those teams unless, of course, it was Chicago vs. Pittsburgh.
