It Has Been a Busy Month: Here's Our Top Three Games You Should Buy (Roundtable)

Kevin Scott

  1. NBA 2K19
  2. NHL 19
  3. The Golf Club 2019

There might be some recency bias here since these are newer games that I’ve been playing the most lately, but these would be my current choices.

Kevin Groves

  1. FIFA 19
  2. NBA 2K19
  3. Madden 19

A great online game (FIFA), offline game (NBA 2K) and the only football game on the market (winning by default is still winning).

Josh Houtz

  1. Madden 19
  2. FIFA 19
  3. NBA 2K19

My love for football makes it nearly impossible to pass on Madden, and I do believe this is one of the best to date. FIFA is probably the game I enjoy playing most, especially online. NBA 2K continues to be one of the best representations of a sports game on the market.

Matt Llewellyn

  1. NBA 2K19
  2. Madden 19
  3. NHL 19

2K is again the deepest franchise in sports and has a million ways to play in spite of microtransactions. Madden is football and as a die-hard football fanatic it’s on my list every year. NHL 19 has made me a fan with cool things like World of Chel and the fog of war scouting mechanic, despite me not being the biggest hockey fan in general.

Brandon Kosal

  1. NBA 2K19
  2. MLB The Show 18
  3. WWE 2K18

NBA 2K19 is the GOAT of sports video games. It’s mandatory. MLB The Show 18 is easily the second-best franchise in the genre. And one could argue no sports game has a more realistic feel than The Show. Lastly, WWE 2K18. As a lifelong wrestling fan, I can’t be without a wrestling game.

Joel Smith

  1. NBA 2K19
  2. FIFA 19
  3. Madden NFL 19/NHL 19 (Tie)

NBA 2K19. A must have right out the gate. Absolutely beautiful game. FIFA 19 is my second choice. It is absolutely disappointing that there was absolutely zero change to Manager mode, but the acquisition of Champions League and the updated gameplay alone make it worth buying. Plus, thanks to slider modifications from community guys like Matt10L, the game plays SO WELL. Finally, a tie between both Madden 19 and NHL 19. I’m sorry I can’t decide but RPM has changed the way that EA Sport’s titles play this year. Madden feels and plays the best that it’s played in a long time. It’s become enjoyable again. NHL feels like it’s what we should have seen last year in terms of how play on the ice feels, but the skating is divine this year. Tightened up gameplay makes it a quality product on the ice. The World of Chel is a nice addition to wrap up the online world of EASHL and the newly added modes together.

  1. The choices and variety here just ram home what a poor time it is to be a sports game fan.
    Ten to twelve years ago none of these lists would be the same - such was the breadth and depth of choice we had.
    Multiple college sports games. Competition on NFL/NHL/NBA and MLB, Boxing, Rugby, Multiple tennis games, cricket, arcade sports games, even arena football had a brief run of games.
    I still play the Xbox arena football which is a surprisingly deep game.
    Some of the games had seemingly better options than now. One of the College BBall games have multiple commentary teams with real life presentation for each of the channels
    Golf had the excellent Tiger Woods series.
    Boxing had multiple options admittedly some better than others.
    The lack of competition and various other factors mean its slim picking for us.
    With the way 2K has handled VC yet again this year and Madden being mostly a complete mess, I find it borderline insane that these people have them ranked so high. I only own FIFA, but its great so far and I'm going to buy Live and NHL at some point. Live and NHL have gotten deserved praise.
    You only need to look into the forums here and on Reddit to see people really upset about 2K and Madden. Again, this article is crazy and I'm surprised this was even put on OS to begin with.

    2k offers the most in depth and robust single player experience with unprecedented levels of customization completely unaffected by VC. The gameplay, variety of different modes and overall presentation are also excellent so those are probably the reasons why it's ranked so high.
    I don't think there's anything "borderline insane" about that.
    I just don't get how Madden is in anyone's top 3. Sooooo many problems with the game. I shouldn't have to change people's ratings to make the game play better. Yet here I am changing the RB's so the CPU runs better without all that juking. But you know what? I guess I need to do that for all the damn players (which no way in hell I'm going through everyone to change juke and spine move).
    I was playing the Jets and they pick it off. It should have been a pick 6, but instead of the CB running away from my qb and OL, he decides he wants to run to the middle of the field and than do a spin move............ Like he had 1/3 the field to run to and he runs back to the middle? That is a huge deal. So I need to change everyone's ratings???? Really???? I would spend more time doing that, than playing the game.........
    CPU RB's still do stupid stuff even with changing Juke and Spin move. I don't think the CPU even audibles.
    That's just one thing with Madden. There are just too many other sports games doing it way better than Madden for it to be in the top 3. Sorry fellas I think you all are way off on that one.
