off topic - baseball sims

Postby juh915 » Wed May 19, 2004 7:12 pm

i wasn't sure where to put this, so i figured this was the best place.

i've been looking around for a baseball management simulation video game but can't really find any sites that review these kinds of things. so i figured that people in the cafe know quite a bit about baseball and there might be some who enjoy the video game sims. all i've really seen is the game "out of the park 6" and it has received decent reviews. but what other games out there are worth my money?

sorry for the off-topic post, just not sure where to look.

I don't know if they still make it, but I liked Baseball Mogul. Its pretty much a numbers game and should be very cheap.

I was wondering the same thing. It appears they stopped making it this year, which is unfortunate.

that baseball mogul game has been getting worse and worse reviews lately from gamespot.com.

here's last year's review, it got a 6.7 out of 10:

and here's a link to search for more sports game reviews:

i think the problem with Out of the Park is that they use fictitious names. The plus with Baseball mogul is that they use the real players. But from what I gather, Out of the Park a much better game.

oh I found you! I'll send you a challenge. My team is the Frisco Ruff Ryders. Also be sure to sign up when the game goes live (in a couple of weeks).
