Thatís it for me

I’ve played this game for 16 years. I’ve had a lot of fun. I’ve won a few championships, threw three no hitters, and I’ve had players win multiple awards. I’ve been a member of OS since 2011 when I had a different user name. I’ve learned a lot from people on this site and always looked forward to the camaraderie of individuals who enjoy baseball gaming as much as I used to. The Show is the only game I play, it’s actually the only game I’ve owned in a long time. But it’s time for me to put this down.

I’ve lost any and all enjoyment in this game and I’m not exactly sure how or when that happened. It’s not the game either. It’s just me. It’s this constant changing slider’s, levels, restarting my franchise repeatedly. It truly doesn’t make any sense. I’m not even really sure what it is I’m looking for. This has been taking place since 2020. Long gone seem to be the days of me just starting my franchise, changing pitch speed only, if that and playing the full season. I’m not sure what caused this but certainly it’s drained me of any enjoyment of the game. And it sucks.

I’ve had some great memories and teams and some of both I’d just rather forget. I wish you all luck this season and with your experience with the show!

Sounds like you've just outgrown the show or maybe even video games in general. It happens in many different aspects as we age. All good things come to an end. At least you have 16 years of memories.

If you still want a baseball fix you should check out OOTP! Not as demanding as The Show and a great sim

Re: Thatís it for me

If you happen to have an Xbox or PS2, Major League Baseball 2K5 is quite underrated and is most enjoyable. And hopefully you have an old CRT because it looks absolutely marvelous on one..


I hear you tho, I've been a Show guy for ten years and often wish there were other options. Even though I really like 22.

You can request a name change, just has to be approved and done by whoever does those. I had mine changed years ago. Really want go again to match my PSN but just never get around to requesting it.
