We will continue to present the sports games that EA Sports released over the years. After we posted the games EA Sports released in 1992 we should start now with the beggining. The first sports games Electronic Arts released was in 1987 and this represented a new beggining for the gaming industry. EA Sports took it to a whole another level and their sports games continue to break selling records.
Of course over the years several things happened like releasing games for different platforms and stopping the development of NFL and NHL for PC the platform that was actually intended in the first place for those games.
Not too much to present for the '87 released games but anyway these games are representing an important part in the gaming history, so here they are:
1. Earl Weaver Baseball (1987)
2. Skate or Die
It's amazing to see how games evolved over time and to think that the guy on the 'Skate or Die' cover must be around 50 now and the little kids that were playing those games in 1987 are over 30 years. We got now smartphones, tablets and more platforms to choose from on where do you want to play your favourite games. Kids are now playing games by using motion control (Kinect or PS3 Move) or even voice control. That should've sound crazy in 1987!
