I am really hoping that their football game catches up to basketball. The basketball games are so good!
Chris reacted to clamel in OOTP gone too far
Playing OOTP mostly in historical saves I got really pissed with the last version OOT23.
They scratched the Cleveland Indians name even for old times. The correct logos of course can still be changed over the years, but having Cleveland Guardians pop up in 1980s or even earlier is just damn sick.
This issue with trying to omit certain names and statues in US has gone insane IMHO. Are Americans really trying to change history or just trying to delete it to what they nowadays think should be the correct moral ground. That could end very very bad in the end. Who puts down the rules on this ?? Dangerous road to travel when omitting history and then finally forget it, only to then be ready to repeat it.
This is games and shouldn't be in this problem. I wonder if they at OOTP might scratch the Negro Leagues next and having those players play real MLB before Jackie Robinson. How could they then celebrate his first year in baseball. History is what it is, just deal with it.

Chris reacted to Larencia in Revolutionizing Hockey 360 Degrees a time - Redroofs Revolution Story in the Buzzer
Redroofs, that small, unincorporated community outside of Vancouver, decided to put their money into a hockey rink. For kids, mostly, but some grownups in the area thought, why not play some actual Lower Iron Hockey League -hockey there at the same time? That might even cover some of the costs for the pee-wee-hockey, argued one local man, with a thick accent.
So, Revolution was born, with it's million pee-wee -hockey teams, ready to conquer the Lower Iron Hockey League and fight for the coveted spot in the glorious Iron Hockey League!
Manager was needed, and there was only one candidate shuffled to the team from the local unemployment office. Some Finnish hustler, who claimed to have some pretty successful history with the sport, having lead another local team out of LIHL all the way to BHL once in his prime, until some connections with the local sports guessing businessmen were revealed and the man mysteriously vanished before the team's first BHL season begun.
Organization and local community only saw the numbers, and the numbers were good.
So, The Manager starts to assess the damage already done by the fact that the team had no manager to begin the season. First press conference began...
"I have now assessed the team. Core group is okay, but we have some problems in the center, wings, defense and between the pipes. Other than that, we are poised to make some noise in the league."
The Manager emphasized the fact how no player in the roster was safe and there was going to be massive switch-ups in the lineup.
"All players are very much on the table. I appreciate the draft picks the most, so, managers, keep 'em trade offers coming."
However, even the local paper did not bother to show up to press conference, so The Manager had to print out this message on the office printer and stick it to the front door of the Blue Ribbon Memorial Rink, just to get the message out.
Chris reacted to BGfromKC in How I started.. Playing Sports Sims
Was already a huge sports fan as a kid, but man... Getting my first taste of editing players, keeping stats with league leaders, lineups, attributes, schedule, etc. with Baseball Stars it was a wrap for me.
Then I got hit with Tecmo SUPER Bowl. Are you kidding me? The Chiefs "Nigerian Nightmare" Christian Okoye bulldozing MF's up and down the field truck sticking before there was ever a stick to truck with. Finishing the season and rushing for like 12,000 yards with 200 touchdowns. Derrick Thomas with around 100 sacks each year. 🤣 😂 🤣

My brother and I started playing stratomatic about the same time we were playing Atari 2600. We even made up a card and dice game to create our own data driven NBA game with cards for the players and teams we likes (inspired by our Dad who said make up a game when we were bored on a rainy day)
Chris reacted to mikimilane in How I started.. Playing Sports Sims
im playing a lot of sports manager games like: football manager, pro basketball manager, handball manager, some ootp games, tennis elbow manager, franchise hockey manager... but my first manager game was probably pro cycling manager 11, 12 maybe.
