I HATE BASEBALL GAMES!!

Post  Mutant on July 25th 2011, 5:45 am

THEY SUCK!!

But seriously, they're so hard to play.

I've played 'The Bigs 2' and couldn't win shit. Every time I hit a "home run" it was picked out of the sky.

I rented 'MLB 2K11' (which I never thought came out over here) and I wanted to sna the disk in half.

If I get another fucking "SWUNG TOO EARLY" message when batting or "BAD GESTURE" when pitching I will be pissed.

And what's the deal with the batter walking to the base when I got 3 strikes on him?

It was like I was playing cricket. It was only the first inning and it was 16-0 w/ 2 outs to the Tigers. I was the goddamn Yankees.

Gay.

Well there's your problem, it's the games you picked. The Bigs is an arcade game so it's not at all realistic. Also MLB 2K11 wasn't that great of a game and they didn't explain the pitching mechanism at all so yes, difficult to figure out. What you have to do is make the first motion, then wait for the circle to grow into the bigger circle, then make the second motion

Bah, I gave up on franchise mode.

Much easier to play "My Player" as a 3rd Baseman.

For some odd reason, every time the AI hits the ball it comes to me so I stab X and chuck it to the 1B guy and he's out.

I had to whack the game to rookie because my...stat or whatever the number is was .108 which I know is garbage. I know it's garbage because I need to get it above .300 to get called up to the majors.

MLB 2k games are something you need to really study before you can get good. When I had MLB 2k9, I was the same as you.

I got MLB 2k11 and I think I put more time into the Tutorials and everything and then bam, I could actually play the game well.

It also helped that you put it on rookie skill level

I might try that. I want to get some achievements out of it before I send it back...

Baseball doesn't translate well to video game form IMO

Well I sent it back to the rental company today.

It just pissed me off. If it's not the pitching/batting in normal modes which are hard to grasp, it's also the stupid AI in My Player mode.

I'm on a base and the fuckers just cancel each other out. I spend more time jogging between a base and back to it when the batter misses than I did running to the next base.
