Boo. THPS2 is better in every single way than the original Pro Skater.

That is my only objection. Because it's pretty much the only thing I looked at on the list.

I'm disappointed to be honest... People from all over the world come here to talk about all sports titles and yet there are titles still missing. Why limit this to the USA? Seriously, if Mutant League Football can make the cut, titles like Kelly Slater Surfing, 4D boxing and Rugby League on Megadrive should at least get a mention...

What about a wildcard round where titles from around the world - and even those that weren't nominated - get a sneaky chance to spoil the party?

Wouldn't Kelly Slater Surfing have to be considered a good game to make the list? Its not like the video game world was missing a surfing game, or that somehow the only attempt at such a game should be on the list of the greatest sports games ever.

This is a competition for the title of the best sports game ever, we could make it 69 teams and just pretend that Kelly Slater Surfing had a chance and eliminate them in some sort of play-in round, but then you'd be considering Kelly Slater Surfing one of the 69 greatest sports games of all time, and that's just wrong.

Why not throw the cricket game on the list? Sure its not the best game by any stretch of imagination but its played elsewhere so it deserves a shot. Lets give some high school a spot in the NCAA tourney this March, or at least mention the school, they play basketball too though not nearly on the level of the NCAA.

MVP Baseball 2005 is better than any of 2k's baseball games. Hopefully EA can win the rights to a baseball game so this great series can come back.

List is wack without WWE Day of Reckoning. Some of this garbage on this list is just road kill. Day or Reckoning is the reason why it is hard to sell and stay without a gamecube, same as the original XBox still lives because of MVP 05. It is what it is though, which is wack in this case.
