It’s funny how the video game versions of these players are remembered as fondly as the real athletes themselves. Here are the five most dominant players ever to put on a helmet in "Tecmo Super Bowl."

Bo Jackson: Bo knows video games, and how to run circles around defenders on the field -- literally.

Lawrence Taylor: Sack machine was almost unstoppable blocking field goals.

Christian Okoye: First in a long line of dominant Chiefs running backs in video games (Priest Holmes, Larry Johnson, Jamaal Charles).

QB Eagles (Randall Cunningham): Not only can the man scramble, but he is deadly accurate with the long bomb.

Derrick Thomas: Disrupted digital offenses like few others of his generation.
