You know, I was never a fan of Basketball. I couldn’t stand the squeaking of the sneakers. You have
to run back and forth the whole game long and I couldn’t do that more than twice. To top it off, I was a terrible shot. With video games it was the same thing. Also, it was always too strategic, like with all other sports games. There
was one game though that entered the arcade “FROM DOWNTOWN” and gave me hope for enjoying the game a little.
NBA JAM by Midway is a four-player basketball all-star game that is very similar in style to the Arch Rivals format, with the exclusion of pulling the pants down. Punching and pushing is still allowed, but goal tending is NOT! If a player makes three consecutive baskets, he/she would be considered “ON FIRE!” and every basket burns up in flames until the opponent makes a basket.
