The Introduction for NFL Quarterback Club 2000 is a Hilarious Throwback
Do you remember NFL Quarterback Club 2000? It was a video game that was for N64 and Sega Dreamcast. At the time, Madden did not have the rights to the NFL meaning there were multiple NFL games. The real ones would tell you that NFL Gameday 99 was actually a better game than Madden 99. I know that’s hard to believe, but it’s true. I never owned an N64. Despite having a Nintendo which I loved dearly, I became a PlayStation guy and was one until switching to XBox360 before retiring at age 23. Quarterback Club 2000 though was only the video game in my lifetime that featured a Green Bay Packer on the cover. Brett Favre was the star. And the introduction to the game featured Favre getting hyphy in his full Packers’ uniforms watching game highlights.
They don’t make video game intros like they used to. In NFL Quarterback Club 2000: Brett Favre, in full uniform, walks into a control room and gets fired up watching highlights of football culminating with an “it’s alive” pose like he’s created NFL Frankenstein. It’s perfect. pic.twitter.com/ixG8jLZRmX

This is so bad. I get it’s 2000. Things were different back then. We barely had the technology. Sure, the tech boom happened, but most of us didn’t have Internet at that time. Some people didn’t have cable television. So I cannot be too critical. It’s funnier than anything else to look back on how low our threshold was for entertainment. Do I miss video games? Yes from time to time. But I barely have time for writing and podcasting, so, I have zero ideas when I would have time to hit the sticks.
