Sports Games

Sports Games are a video games genre in which the gameplay simulates real sports disciplines. Such games require from the players mastery as far as the game rules, skill, and tactical thinking are concerned. Flagship examples of sports game are those released by EA Sports.

Sports Games – a Division

Sports games can be divided into those in which we control a single player and such in which we take control of the whole team or club. Examples of the first type could be WWE series, Tony Hawk’s series or Rocket League. The representatives of the other kind are such hits as Football Manager or Championship Manager series. There are also hybrid games where the first and the second type of play coexist. An ideal example of such games are the new FIFA editions, for example, FIFA 18.

The rules and the modes of play in the games of this genre are faithfully copied from the real world. Consequently, in most of such games, we can play friendly matches, training rounds, or take part in various competitions. The premieres of sports games are often related to the real-life sports events. IT was so in the case of Summer Athletics series which was always released during Olympic Games.

In the top production of this kind, the developers care for realism. Thus on the sports, we will find licensed players that look like real ones. All the leagues and events will be also licensed bearing real names.

Sports games sometimes require physical prowess. This is so in the case of games that need a move controller in order to work.
