Memorable Black Characters in Video Games

When EA Sports signed Tiger Woods to work with their golf teams on golf games in 1998, they planned a transition so that the PGA Tour Golf series would take on the "Tiger Woods" name. The evolution of the series has been continual since 1990, so the gaming roots of the franchise are 18 years old. The first version of the game to bear Tiger's name was Tiger Woods '99, released in 1998. The title of the game was subsequently changed in 1999 to Tiger Woods PGA Tour X, with X being the year of the season the game corresponds to. Currently eleven games have been released under the Woods license.Very Impressive Tiger...just like your golfing skills!
