Former WWE star and a former WWE NXT champion Adam Cole who is currently working in the All Elite Wrestling recently revealed the video games that he grew up playing and his favourite professional wrestling video games.
Adam Cole is a 90s kid and most of the 90s kids and early 2000s kids grew up playing video games on the consoles like Nintendo 64, PlayStation and Sega Dreamcast. In the earlier days there were consoles like Nintendo, Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis. Every platform had their own professional wrestling video games, unlike these days where every platform gets the same game. Things during the 90s and 2000s were quite different in the world of video games.
Adam Cole Reveals His Favorite Wrestling Video Games
The games that the kids from the mentioned time period grew up playing where some of the best video games based on professional wrestling ever made. There were some multi platform games to like WWF WrestleMania The Arcade Game, WWF War Zone and WWF Attitude. PlayStation had the WWF Smackdown games, Dreamcast had Royal Rumble. Nintendo 64 had the most of the wrestling video games. They had all WWF, WCW and even ECW games.
Among these games, WWF Wrestlemania 2000, WWF No Mercy, WCW/NWO Revenge, WCW vs. NWO World Tour, ECW Hardcore Revolution are some of the best wrestling games on the Nintendo 64. But if only one game has to be selected among these games, it has to be the WWF No Mercy, which is considered as the best ever wrestling video game ever produced.
Of course opinions differed in this case as some of the offence considered WWE SmackDown: Here Comes the Pain on PlayStation 2 as the best ever wrestling video game. However most of the gamers believe that the great greatness of WWF No Mercy could never be surpassed.
Adam Cole who is currently working in the All Elite Wrestling recently spoke to #Dork Podcast where he revealed the video games that he grew up playing and his favourite professional wrestling video games. He said;
“Between [WrestleMania 2000] and No Mercy, and they’re two incredibly similar games as well. There is a part of me, and again, there are certain aspects – I do feel like No Mercy honed in on what made WrestleMania 2000 so special and kind of perfected it.
“That initial playtime with WrestleMania 2000 was so legendary that it’s like, ‘Maybe that one deserves all the credit.’ Then WCW vs. nWo [World Tour], that one was really good.”
