OS Awards: Team-Based Game of the Year

This year was an excellent one for team-based sports games with several highly rated games making their way onto consoles. MLB '09: The Show, NHL 10, FIFA Soccer 10, Madden NFL 10, NBA 2K10 and NBA Live 10 were all well received by fans and critics alike.

However, the game that won this category stood out among the rest as being head and shoulders above the pack, at least in our voting results. MLB '09: The Show ran away with both the staff and reader's vote. With deep gameplay and realistic presentation, The Show had just about everything you could look for in a sports game. For a variety of reasons, MLB '09: The Show is our Team-based Sports Game of the Year.

I voted for NBA 2K10. I don't have a PS3 and really can't justify the purchase for 1 game. I would like to caution people on being so quick to fall in love with this game. NBA 2K10 has been ridiculed in a very strong manner for the last couple of years for bad online play simply because it has another game in the market which isn't valid competition but has the EA name attached to it. The Show on the other hand, is getting away with a lot because 2K Baseball is not the marketing scam that EA is. The Show had better tie these loose ends before MVP gets back into the market. I am not downing the game in any way because I don't own it, but I am stating what I believe to be the truth in that The Show is getting away with a lot because of the lack of a powerhouse competitor and we will look back in the near future and you guys will be complaining about it just like NBA 2K

I kinda feel the same way the show is great but, w/o a true measure against it how great is it really? I think overall this was a great year for gaming. 2010 will just be better.

Morons. How can you even comment on a game you have never played! MVP PC with the mods was great, but The Show is better. Also, The Show has 25 years of baseball video games as a measuring stick. If you know baseball, have played baseball at a high level, and understand all its nuances, then you realize how great The Show is. They don't have to market it. People who have spent time with it and have bought the PS3 specifically due to this game, are all the marketing The Show needs.

With that being said, Sony needs to step up to the plate and deliver with the online aspect of the game. This has been a big disappointment in the series. Hopefully, that will be fixed this year. Also, I look forward to the Classic Stadiums this year too.

Almost all modern sports games have flaws that make them something you only play offline or only play online.

The Show may fall short in its online experience, but then again, so do many other great offline games.

The same can be said of games like Madden, NHL and NCAA that are played almost exclusively online because the offline play has so many major issues.

I think I am in the vast minority. The Show disappointed me. I play on the PSP, and the inability to check swing, combined with the frustration of judging the location of pitches made my play time with The Show pretty short-lived. I guess the gameplay must be much better on the PS3.

GlennN,
Those are not issues on the PS3 and that is what is being awarded here. Thanks for the info on the issues on the PSP though. I wasn't aware of that, not having a PSP.
