Don’t think of Sportsfriends as a compilation of minigames; think of it as an indie anthology. Sportsfriends represents the distinct visions of four independent developers united for one purpose—to bring friends together. It has been called a “party game”, which it is, but it is also a manifesto, a conscious rejection of digital disconnectedness. There are no single-player or online modes to be found here. Sportsfriends has had enough of your Skyrim obsession and your World of Warcraft subscription, and it really just wants you to invite some friends over for some fist-bumping, controller-sharing, and aggressive back-patting. It’s hard to find fault with such an aim, even if the included games themselves may fall a little flat.
