For its age and freeware status, Armchair Quarterback is a surprisingly fun and challenging simulation, even if it is somewhat limited. One nice touch is that the game plays in real-time ? you have a limited number of seconds during each match to call plays, make substitutes, etc. For a quick and dirty game of football management, Armchair Quarterback more than fits the bill ? although it is not as detailed as commercial titles released during the same period such as NFL Challenge. Recommended!
Bad news everybody!Okay so this\'ll be short, but in all likelihood, I am going to be shutting this page down. It\'s expensive (very), and I do not think it\'s needed anymore given the success of GOG.com, Abandonia, and a few others. I simply don\'thave the time to keep it up and running, nor can do I have the time to make it the kickass community that I think it needs to be. I tried to ping abandonia about taking it over, but I never got a response. if anyone else has any alternative ideas, drop me a line at admin at hotud.org and we can figure something out.

Armchair Quarterback is a decent free text-based simulation of American football. As the in-game description says, ?...nearly all aspects of the sport are simulated or taken into account, including actual statistics of professional teams in the 1980s. The designer did make a serious attempt to provide the game with enough intelligence to make it a worthy opponent.?
