Dynamic crowds made it move for me. The audio changes with them will be nice. No more walk off cheers when I make it a 12-1 game to avoid the shut out...

Swing animation upgrades are always welcome. Some of the newer ones in this game look smooth and sexy, but there's still that unsightly left-handed level swing where the bat falls vertically. And of course the disappearing bat swings...

I welcome the "out of position penalties" changes in MLB 18 under one condition and that is I hope they changed to code to prevent your CPU opponent from subbing in a non-catcher into the catcher position. It does not happen every offline game you play. But it did happen in MLB 17 and it totally spoiled the result of the game when it did happen. They need to either stop doing this, or they need to tone down the performance penalty when it does happen.

I didn't even think of that. Great point.

Unnecessarily wordy. You don’t need to use “big” words just for the sake of using “big” words.
The point of a video game article is to get your point across to multiple people with various levels of education. It is not to look smart or articulate.* Try to relate to your audience, it makes for better quality articles.
