Slate has posted an article entitled, Olympic Video Games: Why are they so crappy?
"Sports video games have evolved to the point where they're almost as good as the sports themselves. So, why can't designers get the Olympics right? Unlike other sports games, which assume a lifelong knowledge of a league and its players, Olympic video games are quickies, designed to cash in on a brief infatuation. But just like the Olympic Games themselves, the Olympic Games games are easily forgotten."
