Time for the glory days of NES baseball to return.

We didn't have named characters.

We didn't have much pitch selection.

We didn't have accurate graphics or substitutions to make.

And you know what...the game was still a hoot.

Quadruple that when you talk about Bases Loaded, that had rosters of made up characters, but was still a great deal of fun to play.

I hope that cheap alternatives- minus the real rosters (isn't it more fun creating your own name sakes anyway) come out and take large market share...

This is Horrible for gamers.

It will stiffle competition. You will not see a NES Bases Loaded..

Its a much bigger market nowadays, you cant risk it...

I have to agree. My favorite sports game had no license tie ins. Maybe because they spend time money and effort in making the games fun and not realistic

This freaking sucks.  Visual Concepts has the best football game, and EA has the best baseball game... yet we're going to be stuck with playing the other version for both games.

Dammit.

I played both of them quite a bit (as I do every year), and while I have always given the nod to Sega I gotta say that I had much, much more fun with MVP 2004 this year.

Apparently I'm not the only one either

My God!! Who would have ever imagined that a site like IGN would rate an EA sports game higher than a Sega one?  :wink:

All the rankings in the world can't make up for lackluster on-field play. I'll say that MVP was better last year but not better than ESPN.

I hated the 'field goal meter' in all the throws. It's fine if you wan't to use it for pitching but a routine grounder to short shouldn't turn into a fighting games worth of timing and meter watching. Just throw and let the ratings do the rest.

The other thing that killed MVP for me was the fielding momentum in general. Any movement toward the lines with your cornermen and the play would turn into, a diving into the dugout, wild sidearm to first animation that would have any grounder to the foul side of your 3rd baseman leaving David Ortiz safe at first by about 5 steps. Not fun, nor real.
