Angles, definitely not (unless you use instant replay.) But the visuals are usually spot on.


Haha yeah I thought that after I posted it. Visuals are pretty spot on, it's the angles they use to sell the game. I'd love some quick action close ups. I just can't get past the view point :(. I get it's for the sake of seeing and controlling a team but I don't know...I just feel so far removed from the action. I do like watching my friends replays though!

I do like some sports games - Mostly EA MMA and the UFC Undisputed series.

Halo 4 reguvinated FPS for me, Black Cops 2 was a turn off

As for genre, I don't like the dance/fake guitar shovelware games I'm seeing. I use to like those games when I saw them hooked to Japanese DDR machines but for home use, nah.


same, any FPS that turns into reguvinated franchise year by year same thing with minor changes.

I hate the games like FF where you walk around and an enemy appears out of know where and you have to spend a few mins taking turns killing him. How stupid!

never understood Sports games beside racing... as for everything else BRING IT ON :D


Yeah, to me video games are about simulating a fantasy experience that you otherwise cannot do.

Want to go slay dragons? Do it in a video game.
Want to shoot aliens in space? Do it in a video game.
Want to play football? Go outside and play freaking football.

yeah not sure how people get so into them. like WOW.

also fast paced arcade fps games i cant stand, like any COD games especially black ops.

but i love bf3 :p

Never got into sportingsgames (baseball, basketball, etc), would rather play those in real life. also not into racing, or fighting games either.


People get into those because the game rewards you for playing. Easy time invested in something = easy reward at the end. Same with life but people struggle more with life.

MORPGs or whatever they're called. where you just do the same crap over and over to collect EXP and level up.
Repetitive.

Also games like THE SIMs really bore me.


I despise them too!!! I first thought I didn't like them for no legitimate reason and because I was young and silly,

After years and years, I am 100% I do not like RPGs, MMOs, MORPGS or whatever they're called these days >.<!

There are only about 1500 active players on NFL rosters. I would say it is something that fulls under "otherwise cannot do," especially for us older folks. Not a fair comparison there.
What is wrong with me roleplaying the quarterback of the Miami Dolphins? :(

I have to ask, considering your Green Bay logo. Do you play Madden?

I have, but that isn't my favourite type of game either and it's been a long time--I like RPG, FPS, platformers/Mario games, and racing games.
I have to ask, considering your avatar is Ryan Tannehill, do you? :laugh:

I don't like sports video games, because they are hard for me.
