1Magitek_KnightSat 29th Aug 2020 So I've recently been playing a lot of Tecmo Bowl on the Switch Online service. I'm not at all a football fan and have probably never watched a whole game-it's stop and go and I find it boring to watch. I know only the basic rules and don't know what most plays are called. Definitely not the kind of person that knows how to or would want to play a Madden. If a football game didn't have a league or team license I'd never notice! But Tecmo Bowl strips it down so it's simple and feels action packed. It got me thinking about other sports titles that are still a good time for those that don't follow the sport. NBA Jam is probably the king of this. Pretty much everything I know about basketball I learned from endless NBA Jam sessions after school at my friends' house. What other sports games are fun for people that don't play sports? SNK's Baseball Stars on the Neo-Geo is probably good (though I'm enough of a baseball fan that I don't know if it would be fun for people that don't follow it). I think the core components here are: 1) Simplified rules. 2) Arcade style pick up and play gameplay. 3) Multiplayer capability. Does anyone else similarly enjoy a particular sports game despite not really care about the professional sport? I'd love to discuss this. Retro and current, arcade and console, if you have a favorite I want to hear about it! Edited on Sat 29th August, 2020 @ 02:40 by Magitek_Knight Sorry if I got your thread locked.
