How come no hockey games?

EA unfortunately has my favorite sport on lockdown, so it probably wouldn't even be good anyway.

Wait a minute, EA's the only company that can make NHL games, too? Not just NFL? Man, I can't stand EA(who can?). To me, they're just a bunch of cowards, looking for the cheapest and easiest ways to eliminate the competition, instead of just improving on their formula so they can beat the competition fairly.

I don't think they have exclusive rights, but 2K just stopped doing their series a few years back.

The last Hockey game I played was Wayne Gretzky's 3D Hockey '98, and that's only because it came with my Playstation, and it was fun to force fights. Something akin to an NHL Blitz would probably be fun.

Ah, ok. Still, what they did with the rights to NFL games made me lose a lot of respect for them.

Something hockey-related needs to be on the 3DS, though. It's sad that the only hockey representation exclusive to the 3DS right now, is one NES game from 1988. Maybe a Mario Hockey game developed by Next Level Games wouldn't be a bad idea after all...

Ice Hockey would of been an excellent choice for the 3D Classics line...

Yeah, but only SEGA, as of now, is committed to converting VC games into 3D VC. I still can't believe that not even one Mario VC game was in 3D.

I feel it would have a hard time trying to find the puck on a tiny 3DS screen. I''m perfectly fine playing NHL on PS3.
