SPANISH HARLEM – I’m a proud to say that I have been a hardcore gamer since I was a little kid. My favorites have always been sports games and role playing games. Since I can remember I have always bought sports every year, as graphics and gamplay improved so did the experience. At this point there are so realistic, some people won’t be able to tell the difference if your watching a real sporting event or playing a console game. It’s super fun and with so many people at home, you can find some of your favorite sports titles on sale.
If you don’t own a Playstation 4 or Xbox One, but it now and immerse yourself in the digitial world of gaming.
MLB The Show 20 (Playstation Exculsive)
Sorry Xbox fans, you will definitely need a Playstation 4 to buy this game but those that already have will tell you, there is no better baseball game in the world. The gameplay is about as real as you can get and the attention to detail will have you thinking you were watching a real game. Your favorite player will have his unique batting stance and your favorite pitcher will mimic his signature pitching motion. The fielding mechanics are great with your occasional errors because they know nobody is perfect. Even the umpires miss calls inside the strike zone and even call some pitches off the plate. I definitely recommend this game for every hardcore baseball fan and if you have an online package from Playstation then you can play your friends in the comfort of your own home.
It’s one of the most popular sports franchises in the world. Every year they give you top touch gameplay and graphics that have you playing against some of the best athletes in the game, past or present. One of the features has you playing with classic teams. Want to play with Michael Jordan on the ’96 Bulls, they got you covered. Young Shaq… yup that too, they even let you play with the Walt “Clyde” Frazier and the last New York Knicks team to win an NBA Championship. My favorite is the online mode where you play 3 on 3 or 5 on 5 against other players online, you can even find your occasional NBA player, rapper or entertainer there. I have played against Dorian Finney-Smith of the Dallas Mavericks and he uses the same model player that he has in the game. You can tell when an NBA player is playing online because he has the NBA logo next to their gamertag and usually has the flock of players around them trying to get them to join their squad.
I always forget the hockey fans but not today. I never played hockey and I don’t know any of the players other than the stars but man is this game fun. I haven’t played the newest version but in the ones I have played, nothing is cooler than getting into a fight. You won’t know when it will happen but play dirty long enough and someone will get pissed and square up on you. Though I don’t know much about tactics, I do know the one-timers and the moss pit of passing to it players around the net, while pressing the shot button. The cool ones are when you shooting at the net and get the puck deflected only to have another player shoot while the goaltender is off balance. Cool stuff even If I don’t know what I’m doing half the time.
This has to be one of the hardest sports game I ever played but man does it feel so good when you actually score. There is no running and gunning in this game, you have to be methodical and precise with passes. You also have to know your players strength and weaknesses so I suggest playing with the same team as much as you can. Some players can handle the ball and make good passes, other players are there for defense. You don’t want one of your defenders coming up with the ball because it will get stolen and also leave you vulnerable on the back side. I recently starting playing soccer on my Playstation and I must say, as hard as it was to learn, I still feel in love with it.
Apologies to all your Madden fans, I have been out the loop for a while but there’s always next year.
