NES Play Action Football is an American Football title released exclusively in North America in 1990 by Nintendo IRD. It was released for the Nintendo Entertainment System. The game was also released in 2007 for the Wii's Virtual Console. The Play Action Football series received a sequel on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System titled Super Play Action Football.


In the game the player chose from eight licensed teams from around the country and also contained players that were playing for the teams at the time. Because of the Nintendo Entertainment System's graphical limitations, it was impossible to tell which player was which (the players' jerseys didn't have numbers on them).
