I’ve been playing MLB the show every year since MLB 12. I have to say IMO there’s hasn’t been a consistent string of shows that been enjoyable in a long time.
I’m one of the many stopped playing this year and haven’t missed this game.
For one no baseball=less motivation to play but the main reason is the horrible gameplay this year. I’m not going to get into specifics, we already know how horrible the gameplay is currently. I’m speaking from a online standpoint, if you a lot offline player, the game is much more playable.
But im going rate online play year thru year starting the first year on PS4 to now. Including DD.
MLB14- Online Unplayable lagfest-Stopped playing in may.
MLB15- improvement. game was playable DD was coming on-Played on and off all year.
MLB16- The game that got me hooked on DD. Gaming play was hard but rewarding. There were issues but the game was fun- Played all year.
MLB17- My personal favorite. I spent almost 1000 hrs on this game. Content was great. Just lates HR were a flaw but the game was so fun I couldn’t stop playing.- Played all year
MLB18- Huge step back. Souvenirs, Big PCIs, Slow pitch speeds killed the gameplay for me. Content was too much of a grind- Stopped playing in June.
MLB19- The Best MLB content wise. Pitch speeds was fixed. The lines outs were annoying but pitching and defense was consistent- played all year.
MLB20- Content is still solid, but this the quickest I put down MLB. The gameplay is the most inconsistent it’s ever been. Pitching, and fielding is horrendous. Timing Windows inconsistent game to game- Stopped playing mid April.
This is just my opinion. I know that there’s people that will play this no matter what. I just wanted to share my views and opinions on this.
You can share me your favorite shows
