"With the latest baseball titles out on the market, it's a great time to reflect on baseball games of year's past. What old baseball title did you enjoy playing the most?"

Great article. Sad there is no love for RBI Baseball though, even going back to its origins as an unlicensed NES game. IIRC, Jesse Orassco (sp) was a manimal on the mound.

Havent read the article, but MLB 08, its passes MVP 05. its MVP 05 next gen, MVP 05 got a little too much love dont get me wrong it was a very solid solid game, classic even but not the greatest not anymore...
2k5 was a decent shot as well, first game with specific custom soundtracks all new everything at the time. major blow to that game was multiplayer was weak but owell. it was also one of the first games i can remember that had HOF (in the skybox) that made me play ALOT of seasons in franchise personally. as for old school Ken Griffey number 1 for SNES was great for its time. Bigs a solid effort last year, seems like it could deliver an awesome arcade experience in future installments.

Best HR Derby was in Triple play 2001 where u were placed in odd enviroments ie Construction site, Living Room

It is important to distinguish the High Heat games. High Heat 2001 and 2002, specifically on the PC, post patches, and with all of the user mods and tune file adjustments was a brilliant, and highly influencial baseball game on par with games like Earl Weaver Baseball and FPS: Baseball. High Heat on the console just isn't the same. Not even close, really; also if you play High Heat even on the PC without the patches and tune adjustements it's just another game...and a buggy one at that. You really needed the extra stuff for it to shine.

MLB 08 is the Next Gen best baseball game hands down.MVP 05 will always be great.The best old gen baseball games in no particular order would be Baseball Stars (NES) RBI Baseball ( NES) Baseball Stars II (NEO GEO) World Series Baseball II (Sega Saturn) World Series Baseball 95 Featuring Deion Sanders ( Sega 32 X )

Bases Loaded 2 was one of the more fun games I've played. It had a Biorythym system that would tell you what players were hot and cold. I liked Bases Loaded 2 better than 3. Good article, honestly, if High Heat was that great of a game then a huge population would still be playing it, like MVP 2005. I remember playing one of the High Heats on PS1, it was a great game, but it was nothing earth shattering.
