Do Sports Games Need More Competition?

Sports games, nowadays, seem to be lacking the competition they once had with each other. Whether it is football, basketball, or baseball, it seems as if there is less competition each year. Is this a good thing or bad thing? Well... that all depends on which sport we are talking about. (Madden 25, MLB 14: The Show, NBA 2K14, PC, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

What do you all think?

Yes. They aren't saints so many of them need the god of competition putting the fear of losing the mighty dollar into them, lest they go and make a game like BF4.

Of course, I wish the leagues wouldnt make exclusive deals and leave the license open for other devs. There are alot of gamers waiting to play something else.

I would like to see NFL2K, High Heat Baseball and Links make a comeback!

I think they do. It's for this reason that I'm so excited for EA's UFC. They seem to be going for more of a simulator than your traditional arcade-styled THQ UFC game (no hate toward THQ, their UFC games were fun).

I think this new simulator will be a step in the right direction - making both single-player and online more competitive.

Forget what I just said... I should have read your entire article before commenting.

After reading it, I also agree with what you're saying. Franchises like Madden and The Show monopolizing the sports market can get away with lesser-quality games. If there were competition, we'd have a wider variety with each developer trying to out-qualitize (new word?) the other.

I agree. Competition breeds excellence.

Remember the days of NFL Blitz and Midway's Slugfest baseball games? Those were good games.

I remember them having a funny commercial for their football game with Manning on the cover.
