CX 2679, Realsports Basketball, and CX 2680, Realsports Tennis!

This week I cover two more games in the RealSports line, Tennis and Basketball. Basketball was an unfinished prototype that saw the light of day near the turn of the century. I think there is only one more RealSports title left, Boxing, which oddly came out much later than the rest. Next time I'll be discussing the Activision games Oink! and Dolphin, so if you have any thoughts on these games (or the RealSports games, I expected the feedback to be a bit light and I was not mistaken), please send it to me at 2600gamebygame@gmail.com. You will not regret it! Thank you so much for listening, and this Sunday, please say hi to your mother for me.
