As the representation becomes more realistic, gameplay will authomatically become more constrained. If you want to go back to a gameplay similar as NHLPA Hockey, you would need to accept players clipping together and animating unrealistically.

Because sport titles come out every year, the improvements are minor year to year, but every 3 years or so we SHOULD see major improvment.
And leave Madden out of this, that game is a mess, anyone playing the demo can see it. There has never really been a "game changer" Madden , like 2k5 football, or like NHL 09, (I thing that was the first year with rt stick control), where the developers, truley improved the experiance.

Re: Who Is To Blame for Sports Gamers Being so Picky?

i remember the conversations me and my buddies had and still have. before the days of online gaming me and several friends would play sports games. either round robins or multitap football games all together in one room with cords attached to our controllers. to us graphics and game play meant something. not how much fake seats at a fake stadium cost. franchise modes and mini games ruined sports games!

Oh how things have changed.

Now it's almost fitting to compare modern sports gamers to fans of role-playing games. Ardent RPG fans demand nothing less than perfection. Woe is the developer that does not live up to the latest Final Fantasy. Woe is the developer who does not understand the subtle differences between a wood elf and a high elf. You get the idea.

Scoff if you will, but the fact of the matter is that aficionados of sports games are not much better. In fact, I would argue that we have become worse. We demand that our games be authentic, replayable, and somewhere further down this list, enjoyable. Sports games have turned us into monsters, highly educated and discerning monsters.

Sp let us take a look at what the modern sports game must include, as well as some of the culprits that have raised our expectations to these heights.

Re: Who Is To Blame for Sports Gamers Being so Picky?

As someone in the industry, I'd have to say advertising/viral marketing. Do I really need to explain this one at all? When you believe everything you read and hear, well, theirs a good chance your going to be disappointed.

Also, I have to say this, there has never been, and most likely ever be a video game that is shipped w/o bugs. I believe some folks think that devs are lazy or that a QA dept didn't do their jobs or whatever. Truth is, probably 99% of the bugs you folks find in a game, are already well known by the dev team.

I think that if games weren't marketed so heavily and publishers hype machines weren't so convincing to many people, then your expectations would be lower, and therefore your satisfaction w/ a title would be higher.

That's just my 2 pennies. All opinion of course.

Re: Who Is To Blame for Sports Gamers Being so Picky?

Expectations increase with technology. I am sure that someone who purchases a TV today will scrutinize in much greater detail that a TV from 20 years ago.

With that being said, when it comes to sports games, I have tried to put my mindset & expectations back to what they were in the 80's & 90's....Yeah, maybe I am settling for less, but I sure am having more fun.
