The pessimist might be tempted to look back on 2018 and focus on all the things...

Re: The Trends That Move Sports Gaming Forward in 2018

I love the OS original content, but it was a very lackluster year for sports gaming. Moving more towards micro transactions, and less from realistic elements of the sports. I also cannot think that eSports breeds anything other than exploitive styles of play that moves sports games further from the sports that they are supposed to represent. I will take the pessimist tag.

My one hope is that some day all of the Ultimate Team stuff will be considered gambling and made illegal so they’ll have to take it out of our sports games.

Madden unfortunately took a step back, taking what was by far their most promising title because the esports community complained. The problem wasn't that the game was bad, it just didn't play the same as previous editions. The biggest and most destructive change was the patch that made Linebackers into superhumans again, allowing players to continually use base defensive formations against any offense. Prior to that patch, LBs would lose to WR consistently and couldn't cover the entire field, THIS WAS A GOOD THING!

I played more video games this year than in any point in my life do to job changes, conversely I probably played fewer sports games than in many years due to their poor quality and reliance on awful online modes and micro=transaction modes.*
