Why The MLB Should Care That The Show Changed My Life

What does MLB '08: The Show, a renewed passion for baseball and sports leagues issuing exclusive licenses all have in common? Our Senior Features Editor Chris Sanner checks in today to tell us just that and how MLB '08: The Show changed his life.

"There are certain moments in one's life where you know your life will never be the same again. For some people it is a new job. For others it is the death of close friend or family member. Many others see their lives changed by a simple act of kindness or a simple event in their life. As for my life? My life was changed forever by MLB 08: The Show."

MLB: The Show is the best sports gaming series going now, but I almost think MLB will give EA an exclusive license the next go around and kill it. I would say we need to enjoy it while it lasts.

As for 08 I love it too, but the lack of a fix for being able to switch between Major and Minor league clubs to do roster editing was a disappointment. An eeor like that should have been caught. It isn't as bad as some of the bugs in NCAA 09 though.

Oh how I pine for the days before these restrictive exclusive licenses.

I love the game and constantly play, it has flaws though. IE:

Computer fouls off way to many pitches
Only balls hit over OF's head are off the wall
Even the No-Doubter Homeruns go barely over the wall
Too many double plays broken up

2K has the exclusive license right so even if it switches over to EA we will still get this game every game because it's developed only for Sony systems. That said this game is awesome, but after playing over 150 games in my season so far I can say that there is indeed lots of room for improvement so I hope SCEA just doesnt lay back and get lazy like EA has done for years.

I'd agree, there is still a lot of things that could be improved with The Show...one thing that always annoys me is definitely the huge amount of foul bouls the computer hits. However, The Show is a lot closer to replicating it's sport than any other sports game out there right now minus NBA 2K IMHO

NHL 08 says hi! I love this game sure it has its issues, but it is still a great game and the stadiums are amazing to me.
