People used to say Michael Vick made the NFL look like a video game, so imagine how good he was when he actually was in a video game. He may not have been incredibly accurate in real life and that was reflected in his so-so accuracy rating of 84. However, it didn't matter much when his throwing power was 97 while having 95 speed, 94 acceleration and 95 agility.

If he wasn't torching you with long passes to Alge Crumpler or Peerless Price, he was juking his way to massive gains in the open field. When it comes to Madden players, pinning down a cloud was easier than pinning down Vick.

Michael Vick's "Madden NFL 2004" might be legendary, but that's only because of Bo Jackson's dominance in "Techmo Bowl." Jackson was so good in the game, that players came up with a rule banning the use of the Raiders because he was on the team. No one in the game could keep up with him and he was impossible to take down once he got the ball.

If you want an unstoppable player, there was no one better than a man who was unofficially banned in households across America.
