Top 5 Sports Simulation Video Games

GameDynamo - "With the NBA and NHL seasons nearing the finals, baseball picking up, and a labor dispute in the NFL, I got to thinking: what are the best representations of sports in video gaming? EA Sports blazed a trail in the 90s with sports games that were no longer filled with fat little cartoon players and instead focused on realism and simulation of the real thing. Basketball games started having full rosters and season modes, the historic Madden franchise focused on realism, and so on. So, in 2011, what five games have really nailed down a video game experience that is comparable to the game on the field? This was the hardest list to compile because there are a lot of worthy games out there, but we did our best!" (FIFA 11, Fight Night Champion, GameCube, Madden NFL 06, MLB 11: The Show, PC, PS2, PS3, UFC Undisputed 2010, Xbox, Xbox 360)

I'd take out madden and put either NBA 2K11 or NFL2K5.

Where's Gran Turismo 5 and/or Forza Motorsport 3? Racing is a sport...

Might as well put up Shift 2 in the list in that case.

What...Shift isnt a simulation racer? Boo hoo. GT5 and Forza may be the realistic DRIVING simulator, by Shift 2 owns by being the realistic RACING simulator.

When I play a racing game, I want to be the driver, not the car, something Shift succeeds in where GT5 and Forza fail.

I'm surprised that BOTH 2K football and basketball are absent. Not a worthy list without NFL 2K5 and NBA 2K11.

Pfft, Fight Night Champion should be at the TOP of the list.
