AskMen has posted their Top 10: Sports Video Games Of All Time.

Quote:
"Achieving realism in video games is always the ultimate task. Well, not so much -- how much realism is there in slaying Warcraft ogres or obliterating alien zombies (although, when the human race is called upon one day to fight these nasties, we'll be ready).

Sports games, however, are the logical choice for pulling ever closer to the realism factor. But, the greatest sports video games are not always that -- and frankly, they don't have to be.

The market is literally saturated with sports titles that range from the ultra-realistic to the incredibly impossible. When shove comes to tackle, some sports video games just rank higher than others on the legendary scale. Here are the 10 sports video games of all time that have made their mark on gaming culture; they're rated based on the impact they had with fans and on the sports video game genre as a whole."

This is a pretty good top ten if you ask me. A good mix of different types of games on the list.

Bases Loaded, R.B.I 4, Bades of Steel, Ice Hockey, Tyson's Punch Out, Jordan vs Bird, NHL 93, APF 2K8, NHL 10, Madden 04.

I honestly expected a pretty bad list considering the website. I leave pleasantly surprised.

I agree, the list needed Tecmo Bowl and MVP Baseball 2005. Then it would have been perfect. Not sure what to take off though, maybe Tiger Woods and SSX.

1. Punch Out
2. Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2
3. NHL 94
4. NFL 2k1
5. MLB The Show 09
6. Winning 11 7
7. Tiger Woods 2003
8. NBA Street Vol 2
9. SSX3
10. Madden 05


This list is severely flawed and clearly was made by casual game players. From a person who been playing games since 1983, this is what the top 10 sports of all time should have been.

1. Tecmo Bowl
2. NFL 2K5
3. College Hoops 2K8
4. MLB The Show 09
5. NBA 2k8
6. Fight Night 4
7. Tiger Woods 09
8. NCAA 04
9. NHL 2k9
10. Skate

you have to have Tecmo Super Bowl on the list and I would have to see NFL 2k5 on there.
 
# 9 MrNFL_FanIQ @ 10/19/09 09:05 PM
Tecmo Super Bowl is not on the list. This list is null and void.

You know it. When I think of all time sports game lists that's the first, and usually only game that comes to mind. If I had to pick one video game to play the rest of my life against human opponents, it'd be Tecmo Super Bowl
 
# 11 JkA3 @ 10/19/09 09:42 PM
Weird list. I don't feel it at all.
 
# 12 tikaka @ 10/20/09 05:33 AM
1- NBA 2K10

NHL 09 is light years ahead of 2k9.

That's just your opinion, just like they have theirs. Nobody will ever be able to agree with lists like this.
 
# 14 cinders @ 10/20/09 12:50 PM
strange list, I like SSX3 on there and NFL 2K1.

Yeah, I'm shocked it didn't make the list. Just about every sports gamer old enough to have played it that I know has that title on their all-time list.

AskMen just made the Top 10 list of sites that put out moronic top 10 lists.

We often forget that BEST of all time is first of all subjective. Secondly, it shouldn't mean "favorite" of all time. or even "most fun" of all time. Best should mean, I would think, in terms of design, mechanics, audio/video, gameplay, control, the come-back factor (as in does it keep you coming back) should all be considered. Also there needs to be some historical relevance. People under the age of 25 may think Jordan Vs Bird sucks, but it was a pivotal game in that it was one of the first times real life intersected with sports gaming ina way that we're very familiar with now. Playing HORSE with Bird and Jordan was pretty revolutionary at the time. Just the skin tones, the numbers on the correct colored jerseys and the fact that Bird couldn't dunk was enough for all of us to think it was the most realistic thing ever.

Anyway, just some thoughts from a lifelong sports gamer.

It was good that they had 2k1 on there... but they missed 2k5 that should have been no lower than 3.. Then Double Dribble for the NES & Ice Hockey. I also think that NHL 2k9 should get a mention too.
