What?!?!?! All of the other baseball games suck besides MVP. Are you serious? Is EA Sports at least going to make baseball games?

Last rummor was that EA was going to make a College World Series game.

LooseCannon is correct, EA MVP 05 is the best game for this year. The GM control is amazing. ;-D

Yup, I also heard this.

Nothing compares to MVP 2005. It's incredible. The gameplay is awesome. ;-D

MVP, for X-Box.

If you want to try a different type of GMing game, check out Out of the Park Baseball, for your PC.

Yeah, for this year's set of games - MVP is the way to go. ESPN is a cool game too, but I personally like MVP because the control seems easier and it's just an overall better game I think. It's too bad that they don't have the rights to MLB anymore, they were really starting to make strides over the past couple of years into getting the game better and better.

Here's the link to the NCAA game:

I'm probably gonna end up getting it, looks sweet with the aluminum bats.

For realism, I recommend Out of the Park Baseball 6.

The game is so detailed, it's sick.

    Salary arbitration.
    After trading deadline, players must clear waivers if you want to trade them.
    Single A, Double AA, and Triple AAA minor league teams.
    40-man rosters.
    Rule 5 draft.

And then are the things that make the game fun and interesting while being rare enough that it seems realistic

    Players have a national and local popularity rating.
    Rain delays and double-headers.
    Japanese and defected Cuban players entering the league before free-agency.
    Off-season and spring training injuries.
    Player personality. Some players want to play for a winning team, some are greedy, and some simply hate your organization.
    Bench clearing brawls and ejections.
    Players sometimes come out of retirement and start a comeback.
    Play enough seasons and you will start to see Randy Winn Jr., Roger Cedeno Jr., etc. No guarantee they will make it out of the minors though.


Game is $20 and the expansion pack is $10.

what are the biggest differences between the mvp and the sega one this year? i know last year mvp had a glitch where it was almost impossible to hit a hr from the left and it was also tough to pitch. also, i haven't played a computer baseball game before. is it pretty comparable? thx
