Wilderness Walk: Preseason Distractions

Preseason football is finally here to distract us until hockey starts. Thanks NFL!

Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

All this video game talk has got me thinking, which can be a very dangerous thing.

Here are my top video game picks

My top NHL video games:

  1. NHL Hitz (just awesome, giant people, crazy hits)
  2. NHL 05 (50% of one timers went in)
  3. NHL 07 (skill stick)

My top Multiplayer games (non sport games)

  1. Super Smash Bros. (Melee, not  F'ing Brawl)
  2. Halo 1 & 2 (the good old days)
  3. Mario Kart 64 (still the best in the series)
  4. Star Wars Pod Racer 64 (Just 2 player, but it gets heated pretty quickly)

With that out of the way.
