2. Bo Jackson
Bo Jackson was a god among men in the late ‘80s. He played baseball and football on major league levels, starred in Saturday morning cartoons, and, according to Nike, he seemingly knew everything. Meanwhile, in Tecmo Bowl, he was easily the best player football had ever seen, giving gamers a distinct advantage over the guy who didn’t pick the Los Angeles team. He later became an unlockable in 2004’s NFL Street 2, but that should just be the beginning for Bo.
These days, Bo’s basically a footnote in sports history, but his awesome-a-tude means he deserves to be a playable character in every sports game released. Hell, let’s not limit ourselves to just Madden, FIFA, or UFC. Instead of a difficulty level labeled Easy, every hero in a game should just transform into Bo Jackson, a character that’s invulnerable and can only do instant kills. He’s earned it.
