I think I agree. The sports listed on the poll all have examples of good games in them. (Even Rugby, so I hear), but I remember a surfing game around the time Tony Hawk's Pro Skater first exploded, and it didn't turn out so well.Originally Posted by Endless
IIRC, there was a wakeboarding game that turned out purty well, though.
When it first came out I thought the UFC game on Dreamcast did a pretty good job. Its pretty outdated now, but it started pretty good.Originally Posted by Royal
a game about it could be a lot like hockey, but there are tons of ways to cradle the ball, there's hitting almost like football, speed like soccer, offensive and defensive scheme plays can be set up like basketball and using your stick to check the other player's stick, besides all that, there's the goalie and certain shots to contend with.

Hockey; the titles since the SNES era have been horrible; not realistic at all other than graphically, and nowhere enjoyable enough to be considered an arcade experience.
Really, really bad.
Boxing, they keep having to completely rework the engines and it still ends up being just a fight game.
Baseball. You really can't emulate taking a pitch.
Gotta be Calvinball :D
