Yes its brutal.

The options are extremely limited. FoF or PFS and personally neither are that good. PFS is amatuerish which is about right the developer does it on side and he has been very busy so not much has come out lately. FoF looks like it should be run on MSDos and has some really poor AI that is game breaking imo.

If you are into college, Bowl Bound College Football by Greydog is by far the top football sim, but it is college. The mod packs are amazing and the game overall is incredibly deep.

"Front Office Football" is the best one out there now in my opinion. It has everything that football provides that you want to see. Playing in an MP league is the best because you go aginst other Human players. I've been playing in a MP league for over 3 years now.

1. Free Agency
2. Trading
3. Penalties (you even have ilegal formation as a penalty)
4. Draft
5. Your players ratings mean evrything.
6. Game planning
7. Salary Cap
8. Build stadium, set ticket price.
9. Updated NFL Rosters
10. MP League websites ie: http://www.fof-gml.com/teampage.php?teamid=7

Now the developer of FOF is coming out with a newer version of FOF this year. Some are saying as quick as Nov.

Yes you can get updated rosters, but not sure about the new conferences. However it is very easy to do those yourself. Also, you can do a playoff format before you start.

Re: What is the best football txt sim game for pc?

Was hoping to be able to start my own thread but noobie here.

First time poster looking for a recommendation. Iím looking for a Football simulation that would let me setup a fantasy league with a structure that isnít the normal NFL structure, teams or players. Has a draft, free agency, salaries and a cap that I can set. Ability to design plays and hopefully see those plays acted out on the field to some degree. Would also like to be able to design my own helmet, field and endzone logos that would show up in the game to some degree.


I have looked at Front Office Football, Football Mogul, Action PC Football, Pro Football Simulator and Strat-O-Matic Football but I canít get a good feeling on which one of these fits.


Really hoping to get some insight from people that actually have these games.

Strat-O-Matic is really only good for a single season, unless they've changed something. Growing up I played it a ton, and back than it was roll dice and look up the results.

dksports (Dave Koch) has a football game, but I'm not sure if it's good for multiple seasons.

Is FOF designed along the lines of OOTP, FM, EHL?

That's kind of the feeling I got from looking at the webpage and seeing all the talk dealing with seasonal cards. So with that said Strat-O-Matic doesn't look like it would fit what I'm looking for. Anyone else able to help me figure out if these others might be what I'm looking for?

Front Office Football
Football Mogul
Action PC Football
Pro Football Simulator

Thanks
