Sega selected Cowboys star Deion Sanders as the heir to Joe Montana’s licensing crown, but that was likely the biggest change made to the series. Prime Time NFL didn’t do much to stand apart from previous editions, but it added enough to make it a contender worthy of the franchise tag.
Sega gave EA Sports a run for its money with a line of quality titles that covered all types of sports. One of its strongest series during the 16-bit era was NBA Action.
