This is the first season of Retro Football on TheGamerPad and GSFN. The first few weeks started off as a 2 game special. The first game would be a retro game, while the second game would be played in Madden 17 on PS4 with special goals and custom rules. The added Madden 17 games seemed unnecessary and probably better suited for another series.
The match-ups are based on actual match-ups in the NFL 2016 Season during that week. The goal is to play with every team at least once in the season, but sometimes that might not be possible and sometimes there might be duplicates.
I haven’t played these retro games in years, if at all, so I usually fight a learning curve in the first half that I try to overcome in the second half. Sometimes I get blown out, sometimes I make an interesting comeback.
