    Hey Guys

    I was at a friend's cabin this weekend and he cracked out an old Sega system with NHL '95. Old-school 2D and a blast. I don't play sports games and have none in my collection, but am wondering what might be good cheap titles to have for spur-of-the-moment.

    If you are a non sports fan, then you'll love the EA series. They take the best of the sports(hard checking from hockey, dunks from basketball, home runs from baseball, etc) and expand on it to make it more impressive.
