I was quite amazed when I first played the original Sports Talk Football. For the longest time, any type of voice or digitized sound took up tremendous space in a cartridge. But here comes Sega with quality synthesized speech that can say any word they type in (text to speech), but some how they even managed to give it excitement, enthusiasm, and a bit of naturalness that most text-to-speech programs lack. The announcer actually gets somewhat excited sometimes, like on the play Icarus described above.

Amazing.
