I used to play a lot of sports games a long time ago on a number of systems I own or have owned. I don’t these days save for assorted racing games I like and some “extreme” sports games, but Netamin’s Hockey Manager 20|20 does look somewhat intriguing with all those charts and graphs to peruse and use. The trailer isn’t at all that exciting unless anything about the sport automatically gets you cheering, so here you go – a little test, followed below the jump by a slew of screenshots and some game info.

That’s a lot, isn’t it? Granted, I’ll admit it’s not for me, but this looks as if it will be a slap shot that zips straight into the goal for the most dedicated fans of the sport, so that makes me happy if they’re happy.
For ten years now, since my Windows 98 desktop PC died, I’ve been trying to figure out how to play EA Sports NHL98 again. A friend just gave me a desktop computer, and I think I’ve discovered on-line how to get this thing going again. After reading this post, I was curious: was NHL98 one of the sports games you used to play?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sy5NIHzEk3M&t=118s I think the last hockey game I played was this one and wow – someone has a YouTube page dedicated to videogame hockey? I think there’s more that one of those pages, too. Will wonders ever cease?
Wonders WILL never cease! Here’s a sample of NHL98, the one I have and love. I was still playing this in the 2000s when I found a guy in Sweden who had TONS of add-ons and mods for this game; he let me download them, and holy cow, how cool they were! New ads, brand names on helmets and sticks, updated scoreboards for each arena…and I could dig inside the game and make changes to player names, arena names, stats, etc. It was incredible. Hopefully I can get it running again!
