As NASCAR fans watched the finale in Homestead, one has to wonder as a video game fan, why we have no next-gen version of NASCAR yet?

Obviously Eutechnyx is the latest developer to take a crack at the NASCAR series, but with releases only on the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, the develpoer has left early adopter fans standing on pit road with no ride or sponsorship.

The history of NASCAR console video games is littered with failed attempts. There have been multiple efforts on consoles, and most have left fans wondering if the developers even watched the sport they were trying to digitally recreate.

Everyone has their go-to characters in a fighting game, and EA Sports UFC is no different. Particularly before the most recent patch, there were a predictable number of fighters you might see for the various weight classes. Names like Werdum, Aldo, Bar„o, Jones, GSP and Rousey are familiar if youíve played any of online for EA Sports UFC, but here are six names that might not be as common. Some of them are a staple of certain players online, but I still see them so rarely that I think most people havenít realized what they bring to the table.

WWE 2K15ís debut on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is kind of like when Chris Masterís debuted on RAW years ago.

It certainly looks the part. It can be entertaining at times in the ring. But give it long enough, and you see that all you really have is a midcarder being given a major push that it doesnít yet deserve.

While WWE 2K15 is a perfectly fine game, it's going to take another year or two to become a main event star.

Now 19 games into his 2014-2015 season, the 22 points tallied by Nashville Predators rookie Filip Forsberg currently tie Steven Stamkos and Phil Kessel for the fourth-highest total in the National Hockey League. Forsberg's +20 on-ice rating leads the NHL, placing five pluses ahead of the second-place skater, Vladimir Tarasenko.

It's been 10 weeks since NHL 15 launched, yet in the game, Forsberg remains the worst player in the Predators' lineup, tied with fourth-line grinder, Taylor Beck, for a team-low 77 overall rating.

Things are bad when youíre practically begging for the CPU to put up a stop.

It was the 12th time that drive I had run the same play: HB Dive right up the center. My Eagles had a significant lead, and I wanted the opposing defense to force me to pass the ball. As you may have already guessed, that never came to fruition.

On that 12th play, LeSean McCoy cruised into the endzone for a touchdown. Why was it so easy? Because despite my repetition in the playcalling, the CPU refused to stack the box. Better yet, they would often spread their defensive line in a QB contain. Why? Why wouldnít they try and stop me, when Iím making it so very easy for them?

The answer is simple: Maddenís AI doesnít adapt. This is more prevalent in the playcalling than anywhere else, and itís especially noticeable as the game carries on. No matter the score, no matter the time left on the clock, the CPU fails to adapt defensively.

What a shame it is, that in the year 2014 we still have to abide by house rules and dumb ourselves down to the CPUís level.

Itís 2014, and Maddenís AI is still wrong.
