    Sports Games

    So after a small discussion with Slashed today about sports games, he was baffled that I like them, and that many people play them.
    Anyone else here play them? If so what?

    I love Fifa, I have Fifa 13. Also love Madden, and NBA2k games, I am getting Madden 13 and am currently playing NBA2K13. Love the old school NHL games and the AFL game and some of the cricket games are good as well.

    FIFA is ridiculously addictive, especially with mates on-line.

    I don't understand the appeal of playing a game about a game that can be played in real life.

    I've played some racing games and a very small amount of Viva. It was alright but they don't come close to my strategy games.

    This! So good having mates around, few beers, some food and a Fifa comp.

    Well you could say you could join the army instead of playing COD. Argument would be "But I'll die" or "I'm not courageous enough" Well, not many of us are physically skilled enough for some sports, like I'm not very good at basketball (though I can play soccer and AFL).

    Hmm, in my opinion racing isn't really a sport, but that is my personal opinion.

    I love racing games, though I haven't really played them. Outside of those, when it comes to actual sport it comes to my yearly dose of 20 minutes Wii Sports and the EURO soccer games. Mario & Sonic: Winter Olympics' Ice Hockey is also pretty fun when playing with others, as someone who has never even played it still has a 50% chance of winning.

    this exactly.
    Though I don't mind a bit of online pool but that's about it.
