so who makes the best sports games? EA games used to be the best around but they've rested on thier laurels while Sega snuck up and has made the best sports games in my opinion. Let's break it down: American Football: Madden is slightly better than ESPN NFL 2k4 but only by a hair. Madden seems to be the only franchise that EA still takes seriously. Advantage: EA Basketball: This isn't even close, Sega's NBA 2k series (ESPN NBA comes out this month) blows NBA live out of the water in terms of realism and playability. Advantage: Sega Baseball: Again, not even close. The triple play series - now called MVP Baseball sucks while Sega World Series 2k3 was close to baseball perfection in my opinion. Advantage: Sega Hockey: Another easy win for Sega as the NHL 2004 was decent but still to arcadey while ESPN NHL is much closer to real hockey. Advantage: Sega Soccer: Ok Sega doesn't make a Soccer Sim yet but when they do it will awesome if Visual Concepts handles things. Advantage: EA your thoughts?
