is NFL Head Coach a SIM game?

this just hit me, imagine if one of 2ks games is an NFL Head Coach game. they just blow the franchise/coaching decisions mechanics out of the water, then they make whatever game they are making that features actual game play on the sticks and carry that same coach mode over into that.

Re: is NFL Head Coach a SIM game?

In NFL Head Coach, you literally make a play call and watch the result of your decision get simulated before your eyes in real-time with little to no opportunity for user interaction while that happens. You do this repeatedly over the course of multiple NFL games and seasons. The decisions you are allowed to make are authentic to decisions real-world NFL head coaches make on a play-by-play and day-to-day basis. In addition to these mechanics, the game shares Madden's high-level art style, that being photo-realistic graphics and audio.

Of all the examples or hypotheticals posed so far, I think this one is pretty cut-and-dry. NFL Head Coach is obviously a "sim" game, IMO. It's arguably the most "sim" console football game that exists.

Aside from them reviving APF with a generic league this would be the next best option in my opinion. APF animated so well for its time, it was fun just to watch fan made vids of it.

Updated with next gen graphics and a deep franchise I could play an NFL Head Coach like game all day. I donít think itís very likely to be the game 2k is making but if it was...oh man Iíd be crying tears of joy after not having a football game I enjoy for so many years now.

NFL Head Coach is basically the definition of a sim game. Compare to OOTP. A baseball simulator. It's basically that but with football.

09 is the most accurate representation of NFL 'franchise' simulation that EA has come up with.


There isn't a close 2nd.
