Competition Missing in Sports Games

 

 

Cordova, TN; February 20, in the year of our Lord 2015--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is addressing the lack of competition in most sports video games. No we are not talking about playing one another in a sports game. Nor are we talking about the difficulty levels in sports video games when you play against the computer. What we are talking about is competition in sports games on the market place. When there is competition the consumer is the one who wins. Companies have to beat one another out to be the best football, basketball, baseball, hockey, golf, or whatever sport being represented in the video game format.

In the past we had all kinds of competition. Baseball gamers could debate which baseball video game was better. Football gamers had spirited discussions over which football video game franchise was better. The same can be said for basketball, hockey, golf, and more. Basketball is actually getting some competition now that EA Sports has entered the arena again. Contracts like the one the NFL has with EA Sports is bad for the entire video game industry, and it is bad for consumers. Don’t get me wrong - I enjoy playing the Madden NFL football video games. I would like to play another modern day football franchise. I would like to see a different group with a different outlook produce a product in the football realm. The same can be said for baseball, hockey, and more.

The MLB The Show games are great on the Playstation 4, PS Vita, and Playstation 3. It would be nice to play a baseball video game on the Wii U, Xbox One, and Nintendo 3DS. I want to see what someone else could come up with in terms of a baseball video game. Maybe a first person perspective. Take the Olympics for example, there should be multiple companies creating games that consumers can enjoy. I am purposely ignoring the Mickey Mouse, a million worth one penny apps. If you love apps, hey that’s cool. To me they are too small, too limited, and too many have control issues. Then there is the deceptive marketing with the repeat pay to play apps.

It is my personal hope and prayer that someone out there can create a new franchise that builds itself up to become competition to existing sports video games. Whether it is Rugby, Nascar, Ping Pong, Football, Baseball, Golf, Hockey, or some other sport. Can you please create a new franchise with a fresh set of eyes. In the end you will help the entire industry, and you will also help consumers. I will even admit that it is getting boring year after year reporting on the same franchises with tweaks here and there. Where is the XFL video game? Or the USFL one? Why not some minor league teams? Anyone planning on a college football video game this decade? Anyone else think a college basketball game like say the Final Four might work?


God bless,
