    old man rant - Sports video games just suck ever since PS3, Wii and XBox 2 (whatever the fuck its called) came out. PS2, first XBox and Gamecube were the last era of good sports video games.


    Once they brought out PS3 etc they tried to make every single game all about flicking the dopey stick around to make plays instead of the old fashioned button mashing of our youth.


    EA Sports is the worst offender - they turned every classic sports game into a stick flicking mess. Madden, hockey, soccer, golf, basketball, even boxing. In the UFC game from another company you have to spin the stick in circles to make the guys wrestle or do submissions. Like WTF.


    I'm having a meltdown from trying to flick the stick for Tiger Woods golf 2010. They're like "you have to flick it 80% on this shot, you're last flick was only 65%".........fuck you EA Sports.

    side note - I only own $5 games from the bargain bin. I haven't bought a sports game that was released in the last 7 years so maybe they fixed what I am whining about. Still making me crazy though.

    I've never found a good sports game. I want to call plays or make trades. I don't give a shit about joystick motions for spin moves or jumping around like an idiot. Plus I suck at all that.

    Give me old-school Tecmo Bowl... people still come up to Bo Jackson in airports and tell him how awesome he was in that game.

    Also, the first Madden games, before the NFL PR hacks got their sticky fingers on it, used to have ambulances drive out on the field and run over players after you killed the QB. The first hockey games had head bleeders after you beat the shit out of somebody. Ahh... good times.

    But nothing beat the fun of Mutant League Football. Any football game with an audible of "Kill Ref" is my kind of fun.

    I find a lot of them to be too complicated. Especially Madden.

    What the hell are you talking about? EA's FIFA franchise is absolutely awesome and it keeps getting better every year.
