We need more sports sim games

I know there are a handful of sports strategy/sim games like EW Baseball, Baseball Manager and a couple of (American) football ones like Tru Play Football. But most sports games are of the action variety. I know that Out of the Park Baseball is coming to iOS in the spring, but I'd love to see more.

Sports games with franchise mode for example. I'd love to have one with that. Even if it was with fake players.

I'm surprised at the lack of them, actually. What's up with that? 2K gave us hockey; maybe MLB is next...

The over-the-top anime and fantasy elements are massive turn-offs for me in BBSS.

It is good, but as you noted, not terribly realistic. I'd love a game similar to MLB front office manager on the iPad.

Hmm, well I'm glad that you enjoy the game. For me, the RPG elements and anime really takes the fun out of sports. Those things are just far too much distractions from the sport itself. And yeah, basketball games are sure slim pickings in the App Store.

I'm still waiting for a good, realistic baseball game with real players. All of the good baseball games are cartoony and all of the realistic ones suck.
