OS Awards: Most Realistic Gameplay

Traditionally, gameplay has been the cornerstone that great games have been built on. All of the games nominated for this year's Most Realistic Gameplay award fit that requirement by having gameplay that effectively mimics a real-life sport. While 100 percent realistic gameplay is not attainable on consoles for obvious reasons, our winner this year came about as close as you possibly can.

MLB '09: The Show is nominated for just about every award it can be nominated for this year and for good reason. The gameplay is not only incredibly realistic, the game also features an impressive amount of presentation aspects and a robust set of modes. While other games did receive some fleeting attention for this award, it really was MLB '09: The Show's to lose. So with all of that being said, congratulations to the Most Realistic Gameplay of 2009 Award Winner: MLB '09: The Show.

I'm surprised to see NBA 2K place second in the reader vote.

I've played basketball competitively since the first grade and neither 2K nor EA is anywhere close to putting out a decent representation of the sport.

2K is all animations with no actual substance to back it up.

EA is a little closer but still has a lot of issues with passing and general player movement.

Bottom line is, I've yet to play a basketball game that made me use real hoop strategy to win. Instead, "strategy" in modern basketball games consists of exploiting certain animations and AI tendencies.

Re: OS Awards: Most Realistic Gameplay

Don't mean to nitpick or anything because you guys did a great job on these awards articles, but BlueNGold34 didn't make that first reader comment, it was me. Also it came out wrong because at the end it says "there are many glitches/exploits like rocket dunks, etc." but I was actually saying "there isn't many glitches/exploits like rocket dunks, etc.".

Reader Comments: This one was tough since I have only played NBA 2K and NHL, and I have a feeling FIFA or Forza are more realistic, but I voted for NBA 2K10. A lot of the fundamentals of basketball are there and there are many glitches/exploits like rocket dunks, etc. -- BlueNGold34
