Video Games – Why Sports Games In Particular Are So Much Better Than Before

A lot of people assume that computer and video games are mainly played by teens and young adults, but there are lots of people, both men and women, in their 30s and 40s who enjoy playing them as well. One of the most popular types of game is of course the sports game, and in this article I want to discuss why they are so much better than they used to be.

There are two main reasons. Firstly the reality is that as technology has evolved, these games have become more and more advanced. This has resulted in games with better gameplay and better graphics, and games with greater depth and complexity.

For example I remember games on my old Spectrum where you had to put a cassette into your computer and wait for an eternity for it to load. The graphics were often just two or three colours, and the games were ridiculously simplistic.

However at the time we still thought they were absolutely brilliant, but compared to today’s games they are not in the same league. Today’s graphics are so realistic it is untrue. You have 3D graphics, amazing sound and it can take many months, if not years, before you start getting bored with a particular game, whereas the old games could sometimes be mastered after a few days, or hours in some cases.

The second main reason why sports games are so much better than before is because of the rise of internet gaming and social networking. You have always been able to play against another player, even back in the old days, but now you can play against your friends online whenever you want.

This adds extra depth to a game because you are no longer pitting your wits against the computer or a few select friends. You can potentially challenge anyone you want to a game, from anywhere in the world that has an internet connection.

Plus with some games there is a multi-player option so you can test your skills against many other players. For example some racing games allow you to compete against other drivers in a one-off race, and some football management games allow you to manage different teams online over the course of a season to see who comes out on top.

So hopefully you can see why the sports games of today are as good as they have ever been thanks to the internet and improved playability and gameplay. As with anything, these games are surely going to continue to get better and better as the years go on, and sports games are therefore sure to remain highly popular with many gamers.
