Winter Olympics 2014 – NHL 94 Style!

avatar

Here at BetNHL.ca, we love our video games. We’re always playing against each other – be it Madden, NBA 2K or of course NHL games. Sometimes we fire up NHL 14 on the 360, other times we break out the Genesis for some NHL 94 action.

We also love to simulate games. Often after a night of hockey and beers, we’ll put on NHL 14, pick a team each then let the AI battle it out while we’re placing bets on it. We did this a couple of weeks ago, simulating the entire Olympics on NHL 14.

Then we thought “Wouldn’t it be cool if we could do that on NHL 94?”.

So we did.

We have added in all of the international teams onto NHL 94, added all of their rosters with accurate attributes, added in their strips and are going to simulate the WHOLE tournament prior to the Olympic Hockey kicking off on Wednesday, February 12th.

Why yes – we don’t have a life. Why do you ask?

Important Note:

Simply click on each of the below links and it will open in a new window, with a boxscore and video highlights of the game. Bar 2 games, everything is utilizing Instagram Video as it made it much easier to process. The video will look like this, and you’ll just need to click “Play” to play each one. If you don’t see a video below – I dunno, try another browser or something.

Technical Notes:

Many thanks to the website NHL94.com whose comprehensive guides and detailed information on their forums allowed us to do this.

Thanks to Alexander Keiths beer, of which many we consumed while simulating games over and over again to get it as accurate as possible. The whole process took over 40 hours of our lives, but the hangovers were well worth it!

Oh and it should be noted that this is purely for entertainment purposes and most likely not an accurate simulation of the Olympics. Although being the degenerates that we are, we’re totally heading over to Bovada(USA) or Bodog(Canada) or http://www.SportsInteraction.com for everyone else and betting each one with the “correct score” bet. Around 98% of the games were simulated in 10 minutes “NHL 94 Time” which gave an accurate simulation.
