Walk This Way

To hear users from the Operation Sports Forums tell it, chicks don't dig the long ball .... they dig walks.

Or at least "sim gamers" do.

Walks are one of those fascinating areas where "sim" and "game" intersect, and developers find it's hard...{br}{br}View the Entire Article{br}

Re: Walk This Way

Wow. I hope you were just joking.

Let me ask you this. Why does he sucks as a moderator and a writer?

BTW, the staff and the mod crew, we do this for the love of sports gaming, we don't get paid for any of this stuff. We volunteer to do this to give out sports gaming information to the public.

That's got to be the most insulting and tasteless thing I've ever read.

Fortunately, the rest of us will now be spared your drivel for a while...

Re: Walk This Way

very good point there about the walks..
i totally agrre that if we could have joy of drawing a walk(although i get it in mlb2006) maybe stats would be much more closer than real life counterparts..but ive tried to go this way , and the problem in mlb2006 specificly is that they throw too many strikes...so unless you are a very good hitter and keep defending the strike zone pitchers wont walk you as they should...but i do think that a Strke/ball slider would fix it.

anyway great article!

Re: Walk This Way

I'm able to draw walks in ESPN but I'm always tempted to swing. Let's face it, it's always more fun to take a hack then to take a ball. Now I know what it feels like to be Shea Hillenbrand.
