2016 Sports Game of the Year: Best Solo/Career Mode (Reader's Choice)



Solo/Career modes have really entered into an era of flourishing in sports gaming. MyCAREER from NBA 2K really changed how developers approach this mode on a widespread level by introducing narrative to this part of the sports gaming genre a few years back. While other games had done the narrative idea before, none had quite the success than NBA 2K was able to achieve.


This year, FIFA 17 jumped into the fray with their new mode, 'The Journey'. Other games such as MLB The Show 16, stuck with a more tried and true formula of building up characters and having you create your own narrative to play within.

I'm somewhat surprised by The Journey's third place finish. Understandably it was up against two juggernauts in the genre. Although I wonder about the reception rate considering FIFA in general seems to have a lower adoption rate amongst OS members as opposed to the other two games. Not to say there's anything wrong with that, just an observation. Nevertheless a good showing all around by each game.

Wow, MyCareer has become an unmitigated mess. Don't understand how it could be considered the best. I'll take RTTS any day.

I actually almost picked up FIFA just to try the new career mode, but when I found out that you are forced to play with their created character, and that it just ends after one season I was turned off and opted not to go for it. I don't see how it could compete with NBA2K or The Show without the ability to create and edit your player, and multiple seasons.

I really only create guys to play team based modes online. I just wold like games to keep online separate from offline. 2K for example, I can't stand grinding for badges. If I could take my guy online, and earn them I'd be down with that. I voted RTTS because it seems more of an organic rise. Just my two cents. I'm all about franchise modes anyway...
