Weren't the nineties great! With all that nineties music and oh, those nineties clothes we wore! And NHL '94 on the Genesis and SNES. As the nineties become 'retro' cool times which we're definitely not just remembering a handful of highlights from, EA has announced it's bringing back NHL '94 in a new mode for NHL 14. Twenty years. Look how old you are.

The NHL '94 Anniversary Mode takes virtual ice hockey back to a simpler time for video games, when you were young and cool and your hair! What beautiful hair you had!

It strips the controls down to three buttons--Shoot; Pass; and Turbo--and removes troublesome things like 'rules' so you can freely beat seven shades of hell out of your chums. Toss in retro music, celebrations, blue ice, star-shaped player indicators and oh, it's like The Good Old Days.

NHL 14 comes to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 10. Here, watch Anniversary Mode in action and check the announcement for more:

      Wait hold on. Didn't they already do this a few years ago? I have played NHL 94 (or maybe 95) on PS3 using a modern NHL game disc like NHL 12 or something. Or was I drunk and remembering this wrong?

      I dont even like hockey and im going to buy this, when i was a kid me and my younger brother woukd rent nhl 94 all the time. We didnt play to see who scored more goals tho, we woukd just check each other all game long and whoever had the most at the end of the game won. It was so much fun, and we used to laugh so hard while playing it. I was like..14 and he was 7...bjt some damn good fun was had

      Was '94 the one where you could hide behind the net and get the goalie stuck long enough to pull a quick wrap-around score?

      Put hundreds of hours into NHL 94 back in the day....and I had great hair. I wonder if I still have my genesis around somewhere.

      I will only get this if a wrap-around shot still gives you a guaranteed goal
