I have my favourite.
The feature is in NHL ’95 (the world’s best game by the way). In 2-player mode, when a period ends or when the referee blows in the whistle… the game clock stops.
But the players can still act for like 10 seconds or something (not in “play time”).
In that time (for example before the break between first and second period), you can tackle your opponents (and cannot get a penalty). One might think that tackling the player wouldn’t have any meaning, but the truth is… it has. A big meaning.
When me and my bros played NHL ’95, we were constantly trying to “mock” the guy. If you got tackled big time, the other could laugh or say something nasty (in a brotherly good way of course). It was okay, since we were pretty equal and knew what would happen if you got tackled or if the other guy scores or something.
So… when the periods ended, you could tackle. And the guy who tackled harder got “mental” grip on the other (and of course got the bragging rights – at least for so long until the other player did something better).
Hopefully this doesn’t too cruel… (because it never was) and we really loved playing that game. Over and over. Beating and competing against one another.
So – what’s the greatest feature you’ve ever experienced?
