A knee injury ended this Philadelphia Eagles draft pick's playing career. But as a Hall of Fame NFL coach, John Madden (April 10, 1936-December 28, 2021) led the Oakland Raiders to seven AFC titles and a Super Bowl championship in 1977. With an overall 103-32-7 regular-season record, his .759 winning percentage is the best among all NFL coaches with more than 100 games under their belt.

And he never stopped coaching, making a complicated game fun and easier to understand for millions of viewers by bringing his boisterous, unpretentious love of the sport to the broadcast booth, on CBS, Fox, ABC and NBC. Over 30 years on air he earned 16 Emmys, illustrating and analyzing plays with both visual aids (such as a video marker tracking player movements) and comic sound effects (dropping a "Boom!" or a "Doink!" at appropriate moments). He was in the booth for 11 Super Bowls between 1979-2009, retiring after Super Bowl XLIII.

He also shared his football love with video game enthusiasts, creating a groundbreaking franchise, "John Madden Football" (later "Madden NFL"), an EA Sports game that launched in 1988; it has since sold more than 130 million units.

An orphan at age 9, Lee Elder (July 14, 1934-November 28, 2021) got into golf as a caddie, and polished his game while serving in the Army and, after discharge, joining the United Golf Association tour for Black players. [At the time the PGA was only open to Whites.] One of the UGA's best players, Elder won 18 tournaments. After attending the PGA qualifying school, he earned entry for the 1968 tour. During his rookie year he strode into a sudden-death playoff against Jack Nicklaus at the American Golf Classic, losing after five extra holes.

A graduate of Williams College in Massachusetts, Sondheim learned at the knee of Hammerstein, and from avant-garde composer Milton Babbitt, and he brought to his work a playful precision and a love of word games and puzzles that would color his output (including, in 1973, a screenplay for the twisting murder mystery, "The Last of Sheila").

During his 12 seasons in the NFL (he also played for the New Orleans Saints, Washington Redskins, Cleveland Browns, and New York Giants), Patten appeared in 147 games, catching 324 passes for 4,715 yards and 24 touchdowns.

Curiously, in a season two episode, "Obsession," Lt. Leslie actually DID die, thanks to a red corpuscle-eating cloud, but Paskey turned up again later in that same episode, and in 20 more, with no real explanation as to why. (It was, after all, a science fiction show.) Paskey would later claim, in a 2004 online post, that the original script had a scene of Leslie being brought back to life, but it was never filmed.

As the 1960s series ended its run, Paskey dropped out of acting, but he maintained a "Star Trek" presence with appearances at conventions, and a turn as "Admiral Leslie" in a fan series, "Star Trek: New Voyages." Meanwhile, the term "redshirt" as a trope of expendables has lived on, called out in parodies, video games, and even the 2009 "Star Trek" feature film reboot.

Japanese publisher Maki Kaji (October 8, 1951-August 10, 2021) turned a numbers game into one of the world's most popular logic puzzles. In the mid-1980s, Kaji, founder of Japan's first puzzle magazine, Nikoli, popularized sudoku, a form of numbers game that first appeared in the 19th century, in which a grid of boxes must be filled with digits one through nine.

In 2007, the "godfather of sudoku" told The New York Times he believed that was a brilliant mistake, allowing the game to flourish: "This openness is more in keeping with Nikoli's open culture. We're prolific because we do it for the love of games, not for the money."

Along with "Castlevania" and "Arcane," Netflix has created adaptations for games like "The Witcher," "Dragon's Dogma," "DOTA," "Cuphead," and, more recently, "Resident Evil," which dropped to mixed reviews in 2022. Netflix made a number of mistakes with the live-action "Resident Evil" series, but it will have plenty of chances to make up for that, as the company's slate is filled with video game adaptations. There's anime versions of iconic fighting and sci-fi games, as well as spin-offs and sequel seasons to its most notable adaptations. Read on to find out more.

"Tekken," developed by Bandai Namco, is one of the most popular fighting games in existence. Since debuting in 1994, the series has developed into a franchise with ten main entries and numerous spin-off titles. "Tekken" has become so prolific that characters like Heihachi and Kazuya have made guest appearances in other fighting games like "PlayStation All Stars: Battle Royale" and "Super Smash Bros. Ultimate." The "Tekken" franchise is no stranger to being adapted into animated and live-action films, but it's now set to get its first anime treatment from Netflix with "Tekken: Bloodline."

"Bloodline" is apparently set between "Tekken 2" and "Tekken 3" and focuses on Jin Kazama as he seeks vengeance for his mother's death at the hands of antagonist Ogre. The trailer shows that "Bloodline" is filled with notable characters from the franchise and is set to deliver amazing animation mixed with some iconic visuals from the games. It looks like a fan's dream anime version of the games and will hopefully live up to the hype.

Although it had a really rough start at launch, CD Projekt Red's "Cyberpunk 2077" has slowly won players back. When it launched, "Cyberpunk" became known for being unfinished and filled with game-breaking bugs and glitches. With several patches and updates, it has been able to become the immersive and ambitious sci-fi epic that fans wanted it to be.

Ubisoft's "Splinter Cell," based on the novel series of the same name by Tom Clancy, is one of the most beloved stealth games out there. With seven mainline games, the series generally follows elite black ops operative Sam Fisher as he embarks on dangerous secret missions across the globe. Fans have been begging for Ubisoft to bring back Sam Fisher for years, and while it has been announced that Ubisoft is working on a remake of the first game, fans also have a "Splinter Cell" anime series from Netflix coming in the near future.

At this point, not much is known about the story of the series, but we do know who is voicing Lara Croft. Known for her role as Peggy Carter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Hayley Atwell has been cast as Croft and will be joined by Earl Baylon, who will be reprising his voice role from the games as Lara's trusted ally Jonah. Allen Maldonado has also joined the cast and will be voicing tech-expert Zip.

"Assassin's Creed" is one of Ubisoft's longest-running franchises and has been bringing players into multiple historic periods for over a decade. From Ancient Greece to the American Revolution, "Assassin's Creed" has taken players on quite a trip through time and continually expanded its lore with each game. While the 2016 film starring Michael Fassbender failed to impress, fans should be excited about the upcoming Netflix live-action series.

It's pretty rare for a standalone spin-off title to become as popular as the original, but that's exactly what happened when Ubisoft released the "Far Cry 3" expansion "Blood Dragon." Fans instantly became obsessed with the game's retro-futuristic style, a loving homage to '80s action films. While "Far Cry 3" is pretty grounded for the most part, "Blood Dragon" has players fight off demonic lizard creatures with futuristic tech. It's a big favorite among "Far Cry" fans, and Netflix is now adapting it into an anime series.

The upcoming "Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix" takes the concept of the game and spins it into a neon-tinted animated epic that will take viewers on a universe-blending adventure. Not much has been shown of "Captain Laserhawk" yet aside from a killer animation test video that makes the series look incredibly ambitious. "Castlevania" fans should be especially interested in "Captain Laserhawk" as showrunner Adi Shankar played a big role in Netflix's "Castlevania" series. In an interview with Collider, Shankar said that he has "created a wholly new 90's retro-futuristic cyberpunk IP for Ubisoft that remixes several Ubisoft properties in a new fun 'Elseworlds' way."

"Cuphead" went from being an indie hit that pays homage to the golden age of American animation to becoming a pop culture icon. The game was not only a blast to play, as players would fend off some creatively cartoonish bosses as the troublemaking Cuphead or his brother Mugman, but it also struck a chord with a wider audience. Its uniqueness in modern animation is what made Netflix get involved with developer Studio MDHR to create animated series "The Cuphead Show!" The series sees Cuphead (Tru Valentino) and Mugman (Fred Todaro) go on multiple misadventures that evoke the vibes of "Ren and Stimpy" while showcasing some beautifully nostalgic classic animation.

The series is set to return for a follow-up season in August 2022, and is bound to deliver more nods to the games and hilarious bouts between Cuphead and Mugman. Ms. Chalice is set to play a bigger role, and the trailer has confirmed that fan-favorite villains like The Devil and King Dice are returning, alongside debuting villains like Captain Brineybeard. Episode details are still under wraps, but it won't be long until fans reunite with Cuphead and Mugman for more comedic jaunts.

"Castlevania: Nocturne" follows Richter Belmont, who fans know as the descendent of Simon Belmont and Sypha Belnades and the protagonist of "Castlevania" games like "Rondo of Blood" and "Symphony of the Night." "Super Smash Bros. Ultimate" players also know that Richter was added to the roster alongside Simon. There hasn't been much revealed yet in terms of the show's plot, but there are plenty of great story bits involving Ritcher that the series can pull from the games. 041b061a72
