Stop calling sports games ‘casual’. You couldn’t be more wrong

GR - "You don’t like sports games. Chances are, you only clicked on this feature to leave a scathing remark in the comments section. Go ahead, big fella: let it all out. Also, how dare I be so assumptive about what you do and don’t like, right? Better tell me that in your comment too. Well, statistically speaking, GamesRadar’s readers don’t click on articles about sports games." (Culture, Madden NFL 25, NBA 2K14, NHL 14, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Many of the people calling sports games casual are also the kind who enjoy "press x to watch the next cut scene" games. Its kinda ironic because that stuff is the epitome of casual.

I look forward to your supporting evidence.

Sports games aren't casual but a lot od casual gamers play them. Look at any casual gamers game library and the few games they have will more than likely have Fifa or Madden in it.

In the last year the game that I played the most overall was NHL 13. That game is just too much fun when u have a great team that plays together. I definitely got my moneys worth out of that one. Its hell on the controllers though.

Same here... until the lockout ended. It was the first NHL game I played since 96 and was amazed at how deep and diverse the series had become. I'm pissed that NHL 14 wasnt on either next gen console.

I just dislike them I don't care who plays them to each their own as the saying goes. We all have genres we like and dislike. This is nothing new.

Theres no way sports games can be classified as casual... Most of them have DEEP gameplay mechanics and take some effort to master.
