pfalvey Posted June 11, 2006 Share Posted June 11, 2006 What is everyone's Baseball game history, it can be computer or video game console. I'll start off with mine: 1. MLB Baseball- (Intellivision)- I was about 12 years when I got my Intellivision and this was one of the first games I had. Very basic by today's standards, but it was good for it's time. Sadly, it was only a 2 player game which limited it's appeal. 2. Microleague Baseball- Atari 800XL- This was a fun manage-only game with decent graphics and limited animations. I really enjoyed re-playing seasons with either the Pirates or the Tigers. 3. Earl Weaver Baseball- Amiga 500- This was the game that got me hooked on computer baseball. I played the heck out of this game. It had good graphics for it's time, but the gameplay was awesome. The ball physics were very realistic and it had great sound effects. The batting/pitching interface was very well done, very realistic in working the count, I really felt like I accomplished something when I got a hit. Stats were very realistic as well. The only thing it needed was the ability to fast sim CPU teams. 4. Tony Larussa BB 3- PC- When I sold my Amiga and bought an IBM PC, this was the BB game of choice. It wasn't nearly as good as Earl Weaver (Amiga), but it was still a good game. It had good graphics and good stats, but the gameplay could have been better. The game had problems calibrating my joysticks, so I had to use the keyboard, which I didn't like so much. 5. Hardball 4/5- PC- Probably my least favorite BB game series. It played alright and had decent graphics, just a bit too arcady for me. I did play some, so I thought I'd mention it. 6. FPS: Baseball PRO-PC- Had alot of potential being the first real BB game with a detailed career mode, but was too buggy. I loved the football game of this series, however. 7. High Heat-PC- Most are familiar with this game, the most realistic and most comprehensive as far as realism and stats go. Graphics were average to good, but it played a great game. I like games which offer realistic batter-pitcher interfaces where I can work the count and this game excelled in this area. It had it's share of bugs, but it's still a great game. 8. MVP Baseball 2005- PC- Compares very well across the board with other BB games I mentioned with better graphics. Better stat-keeping is really the only area where it needs to make up ground. Of course, the mods here have added to an already great game. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
