Out of Bounds: Keeping Those Rolling Stones Stationary

Dynasty mode is, without a doubt, the backbone of any serious single-player sports game. It is where the true experience of managing an athletic team is re-created. You have to account for free agents, trades, and in more in-depth games, you even have to purchase advertisers and pay for transportation. The team is yours to do with as you please, and the sweet feeling of achievement and bitterness of defeat are all the more real and tangible.

After the last game of the season ends, and you are left with either an emerging empire or a crumbling infrastructure, you still have a ton of work to do before the next campaign begins. You have to take a good hard look at where your team is and where it's going.

I agree with your article. I wish they would add a conversation system like in Dragon age or even like any other rpg that would allow you to interview and sway different free agents or players. This could be influenced by your 'negotiation' skill and/or the 'negotiation' skill of the player. This could in tern limit what could be discussed or the manner of how it is discussed.

It certainly would add a roleplay element to sports games. You could even work in a press conference type element that would influence moral if you were a loud mouth jerk.

I feel as if the last point you made has loads of potential, but picturing how the first crack at it would look completely petrifies me. Just an emotionless face while you click 2 yr/$20 mil.
