    Instead, I liked the NBA Street games, I think 2 was better but it's been a while.

    RBI Baseball was my first sports video game I loved.

    That being said, NBA Jam on Sega Genesis was the shit.

    There was a tiger woods game that featured gamebreakers, which was pretty much an automatic hole in one on anything. Loved that shit.

    If people who drive cars are athletes then so are gamers. Same shit, just less dangerous.

    it's a shame that it hasn't become more popular as retro gaming has become massive and cool

    blasting your friend sitting next to you with a turbo throw from about 7 feet away was awesome and probably still is

    In terms of total play time, nothing really comes close to Madden for me. It's always solid, rarely bad but also rarely great.

    Even with all of the failed and stupid gameplay experiments over the years, I still love breaking a big run like I did when I first started.

    Blitz, Jam, and Hitz are such heads and shoulders above the rest of the entries for major sports I feel like it’s not remotely fair.

    Anyone suggesting an MLB game, even the Griffey series, should probably be reviewed as a likely candidate for institutionalizing. That shit always blows yo. You know it and I know it. Hell even the gamemakers know it fucking sucks.

    I've always enjoyed pitching/hitting 1v1 against someone in the same room, and The Show has been awesome in this specific way for like 10 years (as long as your pitcher has 2 fastballs) :idk:

    The Show consistently sells less than FIFA, Madden, NBA 2K, and NHL. Do you realize how shitty the gameplay has to be to get outsold by hockey? Sure obviously someone out there keeps buying them or they wouldn’t still make it, but for most of us it’s a disaster palace.

    i think it's fun to pitch to someone in the same room when they have the ability to guess pitches :idk:

    obviously there's an element of good faith required. it's not very fun when your opponent tries to get you to chase the first 2-3 pitches of every AB and/or just drills your best hitters every time they come up

    i still hold a grudge against one of my buddies who constantly threw at Matt Kemp in the version of The Show right after his near-40/40 season and that was like 8 years ago
