When the NES was released, Nintendo released a line of very shoddy sports titles to launch with the system. Golf, Tennis, and Baseball are the only ones I played, and they all have one element in common: they suck. The graphics do a poor job of showing off the system, they do indeed seem like direct ports from the Atari 2600. And the gameplay is just good enough to make it satisfactory, but not fun. See RBI Baseball or one of the Bases Loaded games for an example of what the NES was really capable of. This has horrid graphics and EXTREMELY limiting gameplay - you control very little of what goes on on the field and theres no statistics/team management of any sort.
