What Features Should Sports Games Borrow From One Another?


With the year's cycle of sports games starting to come in full effect, it's apparent that we'll likely go one more year without the "perfect" sports title. That is perfectly OK, of course. There hasn't been a perfect game up to this point and it's reasonable to assume there won't be one for a while. Collectively, however, there's enough to draw from each individual title to make something great. For instance, what if Madden had a coaching carousel mode similar to College Hoops 2K8 and NCAA Football 2014? Or maybe if Rory Mcllroy PGA Tour had The Golf Club's intricate course design? These are all things that are easy to fantasize about, but just as easy to shove aside as things that will never happen. But why can't they? There is no reason why games should be so afraid to borrow from another series. With that said, here are a few features that games would be shrewd to obtain.

Depth! Presentation, Creation modes, Tendencies, realism, atomsphere. MLB: The Show and 2K; some of 2K's features because they took a backstep on some features.

I used to like Madden's team relocation feature, and MVP's stadium builder. I wish all sports games included these. Stadium creation would add to "ultimate team"-like modes and owner/franchise modes.

In terms of presentation, it shouldn't take a license to have good presentation. They just have to do to what they would do with a license without the network license. Not difficult.

Every sports game needs TeamBuilder-type features. Build a team, build a stadium, build a uniform, etc all on a website. Then enjoy in game.

I really wish Madden & NBA2K would take a page from the Show as far as creating historical rosters go.
I wish the Show would go as deep into customisation as OOTP does.

The Show's FRANCHISE SAVE ---

And of course NFL2K5--- stilll waiting for someone to copy a ten year old presentation that should be in all games.

The Dual-presentation aspect is definitely interesting. I would love to see (though cost and logistics make this unlikely) at least team-specific broadcast graphics, even if the commentary remained the same. Why stop at CBS and ESPN? How about WGN for Cubs home games? Fox Sports for Tigers, Royals, etc? Or Sportsnet coverage of the Blue Jays?
