Baseball is my favorite sport, and The Show had limitless possibilities in career mode. I made two careers: one as a pitcher for the Houston Astros and one as an outfielder for the Atlanta Braves.
Countless all-nighters over the summer and any free time in the normal schedule were invested into both careers.
To possess baseball ability beyond my own and be a dominant force in the MLB in both careers hooked me. Eventually, I logged 20 years on careers and some incredible moments along the way.
So, when I think of the best sports game, it had to be this one. While this iteration wasn’t anything groundbreaking in The Show series, it was the one I played the most and holds a special place in my heart.
PJ Morales: Wii Sports
Let’s be real here: there is no sports game more ubiquitous than Wii Sports. I played Wii Sports. You played Wii Sports, whether you owned a Wii or just used a friend’s. It’s the fourth bestselling game of all time at nearly 83 million copies sold, and it’s that same universality that makes Wii Sports my favorite sports game of all time.
