RETURN OF THE STARTING FIVE!

I bitched and moaned to get it back for about a year, and then you guys finally did one, Shawn and Clay...and then it hasn't been back since.

I think that was in November.

I say we do a full redesign. Keep the message board going but actually make a real front page homepage like youd see at IGN, 1up.com or whatever..except its geared completely to sports and sports video games.

I guess I think big. I work in the interactive industry so I cant help it. All I do all day every day is sit in front of a Mac hooked up to two 20 inch monitors and I design all day.

Exactly what I was going to say.

Steve, I second what Ceasar is saying. It would be cool to have a site similar to IGN devoted to Sports and Sportsgames. I know it can't be done overnight, but I would love to see the reviews with a few pics in them to add to the page.

I think that having more graphics on the homepage will help the site get some personality. I would love to help in anyway possible if you need ideas. I may even make a mockup of what I'm talking about which could help spawn a few ideas.

I think this would be a good idea too.

I have confidence in you Candy on designing something. Let us guys know what you come up with. Who knows, Steve and the guys may like it a lot to.

yeah I could mock up something as well. This is basically what I do for a large marketing firm in Dallas. Ive worked on brands such as Mountain Dew, Old Spice, Secret, Pepsi, Fantastic 4 The Movie (a co branded mini site promotion with Samsung),Samsung...

I have no problems w/ you guys doing some mockups, but having my "Code Guys" make the backend work for the new "Look" is what worries me. Go ahead and do it up, in your spare time.

If anyone else wants to give it a shot, go for it and let me know.

Review ideas and situtions happening in sports in general. Tossing ideas about the MLB, NBA, NCAA basketball & football, hockey, golf....just go out and make different remarks about the sports and what you see. Talk about greats and what made them great. Talk about different players in their sport and what their contributions or lack there of is. Just different things like that. A podcast would be tight, maybe every 2 weeks, or every month. I know just sticking with sports might be a little on the slow end but it could work.

Also, the polls are always liked on this site. One every two weeks would be hot. More of those non-sports reviews would also be a nice. You guys did one on GRAW. Hey, maybe even go back in time and re-review the concepts and ideas of sports games a few years back. Just like one a month to keep it fresh. What about the poster of the month also? That could be a vote-in. Something like that. I don't know. And if you guys get down with the voter up a month (which would be only made up of someone making unforced contributions to the site), there could eventually be a voter of the year. That voter of the year could get a 1/2 discount on getting their name blue or something like that. I don't know.

My $0.02:
  • Podcasts about happenings in the realms of sports gaming and real-world sports.
  • Return of the Starting Five, if podcasts aren't a feasible option.
  • User-submitted reviews somewhere on the main page. I understand it'd be difficult to implement as someone would have to filter good content from flaming (especially with regard to highly debated games like Madden), but it'd be a cool feature.

Just basically keep it interactive. More football hits on the page from games and real game pictures. Real game pictures and real life game pictures for all sports. Sorry to say but the looking for things on hear is kinda old school. But you can take tips from like gamespot, ign, nfl.com, and some other things. Of course ESPN. All you need is a good designer and its cool because I look at how nice the xbox.com site looks. It looks fantastic and very user friendly an interactive. Thats all. I want you to do as the wise words of a famous person "Get-er-done".

Steve thanks for everything on the board. I don't really write on the message boards, but I do get a lot of good information from most of the people who give reviews of games, and things of that nature. The only thing I would like to see is if there was anyway to seperate the different consoles from the message boards. In other words, to make it easier for someone who has only ps2 to look up first impressions from Madden...I have to go through many pages because there may be xbox 360 content in that broad area under Madden. If it were me, maybe it would look something like this:

Madden xbox 360
Madden ps2
Madden xbox
Madden psp
Madden pc
Madden wii

Then once you click onto the console you play all of the content would be there for your reviews, and replies.

I hope this made sense. Thanks for bringing us the very best of sports gaming.

I like the idea of user reviews. And if a review has an obvious bias it should be deletable by vote or something. And I'd set criteria such as Graphics, Gameplay, Multiplayer, Online, etc. that must be rated individually by each user review.
 
# 15 daflyboys @ 07/05/06 04:23 PM
Yes, user reviews from guys here would be much more valuable than the so-called expert sites. Also, maybe weekly winners of a post of the week or different videos of the week for games, real-life sports, misc. funny, etc.

This would be my biggest gripe about the site. I still have trouble navigating to articles cause I can't figure out where I'm supposed to navigate to.

And since I'm a relative newcomer to the site, what was the Starting Five?

I recommend this:
http://web.archive.org/web/199812060...ionsports.com/

or maybe this:
http://web.archive.org/web/199904270...ionsports.com/

Kick it old school! Not that I'm biased.
 
# 18 luv_mist @ 07/12/06 08:07 PM
What about a computer forum where we can ask questions and things of that nature seperate from the Entertainment and Technology forum. It could be a subforum for the E&T forum as a matter of fact. That way more of those computer questions could be answered for noobs by experts.......

i think the site needs alot of work..one of the things i hate the most is that theres no auctual forums for a game like on ign..theres just a news topic then a thread for it..i want a search engine like on ign and then forums and media and features

There are forums for games....sports games that is. We cant or we should'nt throw up a new forum for each and every game released. Look at me, sounding like I own the site or something...


Anyway, as for the site, I think it simply needs more pics. More color to add some life. A pic for most article or preview would do just fine.
