what is the best mlb game this year for xbox? i really like the gm control and things like that if that helps also realistic gameplay, etc. pretty much what everyone else looks for. who is the top dog this year and why
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.
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.
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
