Why aren’t simulation and sports games a more integral part of eSports?

Would this attract more mainstream attention? Sean Daisy believes that we have to remove the unorthodox and underground nature of eSports in order to make it more accessible - could sport and simulation games in eSports be the answer? (Culture, eSports, PS3, Seth Killian, Starcraft II, Xbox 360)

Depends on the sports game. A game like Madden should not be a part of esports because it's an arcade game. It doesn't simulate Football really well. When you try to set up coverages the AI usually doesn't do a good job, thus leaves those who know how to setup good defensive coverages frustrated.

Well I'm a high level fifa player and I've seen competitive fifa streams before and simply put, it's just boring to watch. 1v1 games only make good esports when there is enough variety.. generally speaking in fifa at least there is only a few styles of play that are effective at high level and you see so many of the same attack patterns repeated.

I can only speak for Fifa here but it is, whilst a very good video game, not representative of real football. In real football you do not get repeated skills and magically curled finishes EVERY MATCH, not even Van Persie can do that in real life! The fact is though they have to cater to their audience who believe they are good at football when they pull off one of those so I don't see Fifa changing to become more realistic, I see it getting worse. I mean they introduced a defensive system whereby simply holding x your defender will shadow the person on the ball perfectly, not even the best of defensive midfielders can do that in real life. They need to take off all the crappy assists and let players play rather than assisted stuff

Manual fifa in esports would be interesting! They also need to sort out the bleeding problem where the goalkeeper dives and parries it right into the path of the oncoming striker constantly.. I actually lost £150 in an offline tournament thanks to that damn problem that's plagued fifa for ages.

I know there are inaccuracies and flaws, but personally eSports without a few sports titles just doesn't fit.

I hope in the very least we see a Nascar game hit eSports at some point.
