Appreciate Sports Gaming, Don't Ruin It

Every year we all hear the same incessant whining go on across various forums about the price of the latest sports video game. Complaints about a $60 roster update or a tiny little facelift in gameplay for the price of a decent first date. So how can this be fixed?

It canít.

The idea to release a sports game every other year has been floating across cyberspace for quite some time now. Battle cries for a cheap update have been heard, yet ignored. But this year it was not entirely ignored -- there was a lackluster attempt on the side of one video game conglomerate.

EA Sports canceled NBA Elite 11. The game has since moved on to Tiburon, but in the interim, EA gave all those NBA Live 2010 players a free update.

Yes, I just said free.

There's a place for constructive, helpful criticism. There is never a place for hateful flaming for any reason. Break from the flaming, continue the constructive criticism.

Well put.

Personally, I liken all the complaining and ridiculous expectations to two things.

1. Your not very good at the game you loath so much.
2. Your comparing a video game to real life.

One or both of these 2 factors is always at the root of incoherent criticisms of above average sports games, ALWAYS.

And to think, I'll probably log well over 100 hours playing NBA 2K11 this year.......for $60.

Meanwhile, I'd have to go to the movie theater 50 times and drop well over $500 to get those same hours of entertainment value elsewhere, or how about I spend $20 for 2 hours of fun at an arcade (and thats if I stretch it.)

NCAA 11 negates that argument...well IMO of course. This has been the best year ever to be a sports video game fan.

You just have to let the game play. If you want the exact NBA, then subscribe to NBATV. This is indeed a video game, not the real sport. Play to win the game, and let the rest happen.

If Randy Moss was traded, then released, then claimed in a Franchise of Madden, people would think thats unrealistic. But it happened.

The high offense Miami Heat scored just 9 points in their debut game's 1st quarter...sometimes that happens.

Play to win the game.
