Request: Olympic Games

Now that you have re-reviewed Video Olympics on the Atari 2600, and with a new Olympics coming up this summer, maybe its time to do a full Olympics article?

I see reviews on games (not all Olympic games) such as: Video Olympics, California Games (I and II), Caveman Games, Nagano 98, Lillihammer 94, Mario and Sonic (Sochi 2014, London 2012, Beijing 2008, Vancouver 2010), Epyx Summer games, Epyx Winter games, Epyx World Games, Int'l Track and Field (original and 2000), and Konami's track and field (I and II).

That might be enough to compile into an article right there. There are some others out there too, such as Konami's Hyper sports and a Daley Thompson game on several 8 bit computers, and I'm sure there are more sports collections too.

This is a great idea - especially if I can get it out a month or so before the Olympics. I think I'll limit this to Summer Olympic games. I can do a winter games special in the future.

Thanks for this great suggestion!

Maybe this would be a good time to review Summer Olympics for the 2600?

YES - how it the heck did I miss THAT?

Also, have a Turbografx summer olympic-styled game in the queue.

Intellivision has an INTV era game from 1988, called Super Pro Decathlon. You have not reviewed it yet. Its on the flashback unit if you don't have a cart.
