Why I Love APBA Football

Without a doubt, my favorite aspect of APBA Football is reviewing the overall team statistics of my replays against the actual statistics. Earlier today I finished a game between the Miami Dolphins and the Philadelphia Eagles and was amazed at the accuracy of the offensive statistics of both teams after 13 games.  After all these years of playing this game, I’m still in awe of how a dice driven game can render such results when played realistically.  This is just another small example of my “Pursuit of the Perfect Replay.”
