As the draft picks were called last night at the NBA Draft, you heard names called and schools mentioned.

To video game players, these schools are a mysterious force not seen on consoles in several years now. Schools like Louisville, Kentucky, Kansas, Georgetown were called, schools which we haven't gotten to play with, as or against in half a console generation on the digital hardwood.

Gamers haven't gotten the chance to play new versions of digital college basketball for some time and with the generational gap approaching, it's possible they won't get the chance for another year or so, if ever.

But college basketball isn't the only sport underrepresented when it comes to sports games. There are other sports with wide ranging popularity which could use a game as well: from college baseball, to high school football, to Olympic sports which don't get proper video game treatment just about ever.

Which sports could use a game? Be sure to vote in our poll to your right on the frontpage and above you in the forums. If you select other, let us know what that means by commenting!

Is this really a question? NCAA Basketball by far.

NCAA basketball

The most frantic 4 days in sports is not in a video game. Someone needs to bring back college ball and capture March madness and all the buzzer beater drama.

College basketball or baseball... it's a toss up which needs to come back 1st. Either way, one or both need to find their way again...

A good rugby game. Fantastic (and growing) sport

High School Basketball X College Basketball By Far!

NCAA Basketball without a doubt.

Boxing, but sim this time.

We already have a HS football game, unless they plan on taking it out of NCAA Football 14.

I don't think there is a wrong answer but college basketball has no game at all. Rugby would be a good choice, but there are games being made in OZ. maybe a new NCAA bball if live 14 works?

There were actually rumors at one point of Live including college basketball as part of the game. I have no idea how they could fit all of that on one disc and the demand on the dev team would be enormous, so I don't hold onto any hope of this actually happening.

But man, talk about a game-changer if they did somehow pull that off.

A proper rugby game or a sim boxing game
 
# 13 checkwreck @ 06/28/13 01:01 PM
There should never be a high school game that would be a disaster. College basketball should have a game every year and college baseball should every other year. I'd like to another boxing game too

Extreme exagerration there mate, Obviously they could it all on one disc....The only real issue is licensing.

There are over 14,000 high school football teams in the U.S. according to max preps. The only way to pull it off is to do it similar to NCAA but also have the conferences, playoff format and pretty much everything fully customizable to the community. It could be done but I just doubt anyone would try it.

NCAA Baseball would be my pick but I'm sure NCAA Basketball would return first and I'd be okay with that.

Most people on this site prob won't agree/care, but I wish we'd get an actual NLL(Lacrosse) game. And even CFL(Canadian football) as well.

NLL could be like a $15 game available as digital download or something.

CFL I'd wish was an extra league on Madden. EA Sports main franchises are Madden,NHL and FIFA. NHL has many leagues(NHL,CHL,European Leagues) FIFA has basically all the "football" leagues(EPL,MLS and more) so why not also give Madden many football leagues too?

Most football fans would obviously care more about NFL than any other league, but would be nice to have other leagues in it as well to attract other audiences to buying the game, and possibly help those leagues grow too since it might make other fans familiar with the league. Or at least make CFL mode like a DLC content for Madden Games.

I'd love to see a lacrosse game. The ones available on XBL mean well, but they aren't that great.

Not really, I think has a good point about the demand on the dev point. Also you would likely have to go with new presentation, new stadiums, new commentary, new chants. Even with just the NBA you already have one very full Blu Ray.

They show College Basketball in Ireland?
