It exists at the perfect junction of accessibility, depth, realism, and fun Its legacy is so well regarded that decades after launch, unlicensed cartridge versions with updated NFL player and team rosters are still released annually And we now clearly understand that the men who play it professionally do so at their peril Until something changes, I have plenty of other games to play
