The Score is currently running a tournament between 64 sports video games to see which one will emerge as the Greatest Sports Video Game of All-Time (Ever).
theScore.com has assembled a field of 64 classic and modern sports games and seeded them 1-thru-8 across eight divisions: Hockey, Basketball, Combat, Racing, Football, Soccer, Baseball and Miscellaneous.
All 64 of the candidates are legitimate contenders to the crown. However, as most of us are aware, there is only one true sport worth our time and attention, and as such, I’m curious if there’s anything close to a consensus on what the best baseball video game of all time is.
I’m not really much of a gamer. In fact, MLB 11: The Show was the first video game I purchased this Century. It should come as no surprise that I am horrible at it. However, I do have fond memories of RBI Baseball battles on the original Nintendo, as well as playing Tommy Lasorda Baseball on the Sega Genesis after school at a buddy’s house.
I’m sure that my fellow Getting Blankards have a far more informed opinion on baseball video gaming than I do, so let’s hear about it. What’s the best baseball video game, and why?
