6 Things I Hate About Sports Games

MMGN: Sports games are some of the most addictive in my collection. It’s easy to get lost for a night in Fifa or NBA, only to complete a tiny amount of the overall season, let alone career.

However, these addictions aren’t without frustration. There are a few key points that seem constant to all sports games that lead me to a fit of extreme rage, vowing to quit sports games forever. But like all “never again” self promises, it only lasts a few hours before you’re right back up there on the horse again. Nevertheless, the rage doesn’t go away.

I think most of these complaints come with the increased level in realism in sports games.

Gone are the days of Tecmo Bowl and 100 yard passes, or Nintendo World Cup and the super shots, you can still get an RBI Baseball style game in Japan with the Power Pros series, but they haven't been localized in the West since the PS2/Wii games were released due to the MLB license not being used, but I wouldn't mind playing as a Japanese team.

I'd rather have fun playing a sports game than worry about the technical aspects. At a certain level they can add to the gameplay, but it seems like now they've just gotten ridiculous.
