Kotaku: The Binder That Ties You To A Game

Kotaku writes: "Wax nostalgic with a sports gamer of a certain age and it's not long before he will mention, like a venerated religious text, the Three-Ring Binder. It was the original franchise mode.

I'm 37, and I've yet to meet a guy from my generation who didn't keep his own stats in a sports video game and doesn't still take tremendous pride in it. A few early PC sports games, notably Micro League Baseball and Earl Weaver Baseball, might have compiled player and team stats, but for most of us, without that Three Ring Binder, Wally Joyner would always be a .290 batter with 22 home runs in RBI Baseball".
