What do you do...

If you produce football videogames, but not for Electronic Arts?

This year EA bought the exclusive NFL license, so that only they may use official team names and player names. Even though QB-Eagles is the greatest video game QB in history, having actual player names is essential to selling a video game. So what do you do?

In an outstanding bit of creativity, Midway Games decided to name the Atlanta QB Ron Mexico.

Heh. (If you don't understand why this is funny, click here.)

(Hat tip, Outsiders. You should read their entire NFC South Preview.)


  • That EA thing was such bullshit, they have it with NASCAR too. Thankfully MLB hasn't sold out yet.

    I'm sure that it's just a matter of time.
