Summer Olympic Review Special

I posted the Summer Olympic Review Special I promised:
http://videogamecritic.com/extras/theme ... _games.htm

Selecting the games was a little tricky! Obviously all the track and field/Decathlon games were an obvious fit, but there are a lot of volleyball/tennis/golf/soccer/etc games I could have also included. In the end I decided not to because they didn't have Olympic themes. I did include the Michael Phelps game of course because I'm from Baltimore for Pete's sake.

It's a work in progress so if anyone has any suggestions let me know.

Great! But you missed a few games you reviewed on your site!

Why not include
- Summer Athletics (Wii)
- Virtua Athlete (Dreamcast)
- Izzy's Quest for the Olympic Rings (Genesis)

Thanks for the feedback Capt!

Thanks! What's your favorite Olympics game on this list? (I only played Decathlete for Saturn and did not enjoy it very much).

I got two more additions on the way (next week):
Summer Games (Atari 2600)
Mario and Sonic at the Rio Games (Wii U)

I'm kind of surprised there's not a "serious" Rio Olympics title this year.
