Remember in ESPN Basketball 2K4 when they used to have the ESPN Nightly Wrapup with Kevin Fraiser? That was a great feature that suddenly disappeared...

Decent article with good points.

The idea that gamers want the bells and whistles back from previous years' titles isn't too far-fetched.

Problem is, whoever puts out these games are looking for the money in the end... if "Playmaker," "Hit Stick," or "Truck Stick" equal an extra coffer or two, so be it. Chaingangs be damned if you don't plunk down some coin from your paycheck.

In the end, I see this phenomenon continuing as long as new players come in and praise the new-school draft picks with the multi-million contracts instead of the old-school hardnosers like Jim Brown.

I think that NBA 2K4 is the game that invented the "where did these features go".

I really had planned on mentioning a few more things. One was definately the in game highlights that both Madden and NHL had at one time in the early 90's. When I would take a break to go back and play the older games I would then come back and have 5 new things to write about and that one slipped my mind at the very end.

I just hoped to shed some light on the fact that these games take so much out and bring it back and call it new. That by this point in time we should be able to have it all! There is no reason to keep doing this anymore, and it is something that as a gamer makes me rather upset.

Great article.

The thing that pisses me off is no in game saves. I would love to have that feature and I think every sports game should have it.

First sports game I remember having this was Tony La Rusa Baseball. Don't know which one though. I know there is more to save now, but there is also a lot more memory on the systems.

I would like to see a sports game come out with the old Baseball Stars setup. Doesn't have to be real players, real teams, etc. Just give me the chance to create a team where I want, edit the rosters(names, etc), trade with various other teams, and build up cash(or points) to upgrade my players abilities.

Old School Baseball Stars is where it's at....

It would be nice if they could even bring back little things like a pre-game weather report or a drive summary after a score. How in the world do you take those things out? It's only a text graphic!
