Competition, it is ingrained in the human spirit. You always want to be the winner, and sports are one of the biggest examples of that. Here are our nominations for Best Sports game of 2011:
FIFA Soccer 2012
Madden NFL 12
And our winner in FIFA Soccer 2012. I have not reason for this as I did not play it. We will need to have IrishPride expand on this one.
I don't really have much to say about Fifa12, except that it's the best "football" game ever. It's hard to rank sports games because every year it seems like there has been no significant improvements over its predecessor. Fifa 12 is the exception. Everything that was great in Fifa 11 is improved by leaps and bounds, not simply adding 3D grass, I'm looking at you NCAA 12! If you like "football" or soccer for everyone else, you will not be disappointed with Fifa Soccer 12. Now if you hate soccer, NBA 2K12 is an honorable mention. The create a player mode is the best create a player mode in any sports game.
