Abandonware DOS title

Games based on a sports license

Sports games, in the DOS era, were often sponsored by popular sports personalities (John Madden, Michael Jordan, Jack Nicklaus, to name a few) or, in some cases, even by institutions (FIFA, NHL, NCAA, NFL). Such a name on the game box was a sure way to boost sales even for low quality games.
