Re: Sports Games

woah, someone should kickstarter a ninja golf 2 straight away

I was wondering where the alligators are, but sharks are almost as good.

I see your point. I don't see this logic applying to myself however, as I do like football but still find myself bored by FIFA 11 (haven't tried 12 yet). The same way I like martial arts (and was doing some forms of martial arts until I finished uni, changed countries and didn't find a nice dojo), but I don't like realistic fighting games. Instead I prefer the over the top streetfighter-type of fighting games. I also love climbing, but I'm not sure if a climbing simulator would be all that much fun as a game. Climbing in games like Assassins Creed or Uncharted is as realistic as Mario Kart is as a racing game.

Re: Sports Games

Ha ha! That trip into the water really killed him.

I have to agree with what Li-Ion said above about the increasing sim-ness of sports games becoming a barrier to entry; it's a shame.

Re: Sports Games

Checking out the Out of the Park Baseball 13 forums, I came across this incredible AAR.


Warning, must like baseball.

Re: Sports Games

I traded my copy of GT5, but we should totally have had a Gamecritics mini\civic\yaris race series for the lulz. We missed a trick there.

Re: Sports Games

Mini races are awesome! That is races with a Mini, not just small races. There are a couple of races that sound more fun on paper than they actually are... cars like the VW Bus or the 50ies Fiat 500 have way to weak acceleration and sluggish handling to have any fun.

GT5 is still my favourite racing game of all time ever. Even with the awkward UI, it's just a love letter to cars and a GT6 could actually convince me getting the PS4...

Re: Sports Games

Great timing! You don't need the PS4 now. We definitely need to arrange these small car races if a few of us get this on release.
