What Are the Most Important Attributes in Sports Games?



Attributes are what drive our sports games. Without them, franchises would feel hollow, head-to-head games would be less strategic and editing players would become a confusing mess. Each game has a single attribute that stands above the rest, so let's go game-by-game to determine which one is king.

Re: What Are the Most Important Attributes in Sports Games?

I personally feel like Awareness is more important than Madden than Speed anymore, but that's just me.

I also tried to start a wide receiver with great physical ratings but AWR 20 in a preseason game once and he was hopelessly stupid on the field - he couldn't even recognize the ball was being thrown to him to get his hands up to catch it - so there's a touch of anecdotal experience with my opinion, haha.

Who would you rather have in Madden, the receiver with 99 awareness and 20 speed, or 20 awareness and 99 speed?

Awareness is an extremely close second, CM. When I started writing the piece, I broke out Madden and lowered some players to a reasonable awareness (50) and they played relatively similar to guys with max awareness. But when I lowered speed to 50 on a player, the difference between that player and someone with 99 speed was pretty much game-breaking.

Re: What Are the Most Important Attributes in Sports Games?

Not sure what happened to NHL, but I'd probably say (in light of recent videos) that shooting accuracy is the most important. All the other attributes are affected by user control (e.g., body checking is affected by user speed and aggression at the point of contact) except speed, but as a recent video showed, speed isn't all it's touted to be. I think that Speed and Acceleration especially will be the most important attributes next year.

Absent other information, I would have a lot of trouble justifying even signing an offensive lineman with 20 SPD, much less a wide receiver, whereas I took a flier on the high-athleticism guy who was dumber than a box of rocks.

Based on my experience with the 20 AWR receiver in the past, however, I probably wouldn't be signing him either, lol.

For The Show it's speed.

I destroy people with a team with almost no true power hitters and an outfield of Young Jr. Hamilton and Dyson, all 99 speed. You get on base and you can steal 2nd and 3rd about 80% of the time. Then you have a few high contact hitters to round out the lineup.

Helps with defense too, I play them deep and give up almost no extra base hits because they get to everything.

99 awareness, 20 speed. He will be my possession receiver.
