List Rules Games don't have to be console exclusive, as long as they were released for PlayStation at some point.

If you owned a PlayStation at any time during your life, then it's safe to say there were probably a few football games in your collection. Whether it's NFL or NCAA college football, taking the role of quarterback and slinging touchdown passes to teammates is one of the greatest joys a video game can bring you. With so many great options to choose from, there was never a shortage of games to play for fans of the genre. Since some games were much better than others, we've decided to rank the best PS football games of all time.

This list will feature the most popular and best selling football games that were released for PlayStation. While many of these games were console exclusive, we're allowing non-exclusives to be a part of the list as well. This poll features items like Madden NFL 2002 and Madden NFL GameDay 2005. Vote for your favorite video games below, and feel free to add any that you think deserve to be on the list.
