Since it was possible, almost every system has had a few pro wrestling games on it. Many were great, and some weren't so great. I count down the five best wrestling games of all time!
5. Pro Wrestling
In the days of the NES, Nintendo made a game simply called Pro Wrestling, and filled it with seven interesting wrestlers. Before WWF games were made, this one was the way to go.
4. WWF Wrestlemania: The Arcade Game
What do you get when you take the WWF Superstars and add a touch of Mortal Kombat to the mix? WWF Wrestlemania! This game had the better known stars of the WWF in the mid 90's, including Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, Yokozuna, and Razor Ramon, using digitized animations from the wrestlers themselves. It made for some fun times in the arcade.
3. WWF Wrestlefest
Technos made a WWF game with all the stars in tag team action with vibrantly animated sprites. There were other wrestling games in the arcade around this time, but Wrestlefest shined the brightest.
2. WCW/nWo: Revenge
When WCW was the hottest thing on TV, this game was the hottest thing on the N64. With 70 wrestlers to choose from, the ability to customize existing wrestlers, and many arenas included, this game was, and still is, a must for any collector.
1. WWF No Mercy
THQ's last N64 WWF offering was a great game indeed. This game took what the already stellar Wrestlemania 2000 had and improved on it. Wrestler creation was improved, and costume pieces, wrestlers, and arenas could be unlocked in the Smackdown Mall. This game could keep many a player entertained for a long time, and if you still have this game and an N64, treat yourself to some retro wrestling goodness.
