Re: Five Classic Features The Current Sports Games are Missing
Awesome read. Totally agree with customisation. Why has this been so neglected from all major sporting games? It adds so many hours of longevity to their career/maanger modes.
It is more than possible to do in this age though. Look at some of the lesser played/known sports games such as Don Bradman Cricket and Rugby League Live (3 now 4). The developer of these games, BigAnt has included an 'Academy' of sorts. Initially to get around lack of any licenses for Cricket. It allows community creation and sharing of players, teams, leagues, umpires and stadiums. This sharing occurs across all platforms I think. It's use in Rugby League wasn't to get around licenses as all major competitions and teams in that game are official. Despite average gameplay of Rugby League Live 3 it allowed me to create endless teams and players, access old classics and updated rosters. It added 100s of hours of extra gameplay.
