If I needed any reason to not buy 21

SDS

It’s not playing this game for months being completely removed from it...turning it on and getting 3 perfect outs by the forth inning and three randomized center mistakes with my 99 pitcher.

The game play is so unbelievably stale in the show. You guys have catered so hard to the new player and have bought in so hard to the mentality of “everyone gets a trophy” that there is no way to recover from it.

YOUR GAME WOULD BE MORE FUN AND ENGAGING FOR ALL PLAYERS IF THERE WAS A LEARNING CURVE.

Ok an ex Sony partner who was very out spoken about the state of the game said it best. They say look at what we are doing to improve this and that. But in all aspects the games has steadily regressed outside of content. I truly have no excitement for this years game, I’ll buy and Biden my time until college football is released

Not that I disagree that the game isn't in the best spot

But there was only 1 P/P out in that game by Trout, why exaggerate?

Because hyperbole is more sellable haha. I love the game, but understand that I’m in the minority here.

Yeah, I wouldn't go as far as to say I "love" this years version, but I don't dislike it either. They did a lot of improvements, I love where pitch speeds are, I think hitting is in a pretty good spot. Fielding is pretty ok at this point.

Pitching is 👎 and I hope they really improve on that in 21

Apparently not. People seem to defend it constantly and I really do not understand how.

Because 1 of 3 PP outs is what happened, not 3? That's why maybe?

If you need a reason to not buy 21, just think about this for a few minutes. For the last 4 years the game has only been on one console, and they haven't been able to get it right for the last 3 years. Now what makes anybody, with anything even close to intelligence, think that they will, all of a sudden, get things right, on even 1 of the 4 consoles that this years game is gonna be released on. Based on the track record, how optimistic can anybody be. I hope, and pray that they get it right, but I'm sure not counting on it.

It’s a video game for gods sake. Stop acting like this is supposed to be real baseball. I’d you can’t handle minor glitches here and there, go play something else

It's a baseball sim. What the heck else is it supposed to be if not real baseball?

I mean be careful with that line of thought. We don't want it to be completely like real baseball. That's how people justify lineouts and such.

There is a fine line between real and video game, and I don't envy SDS having to try and tight-rope walk that line.

Honestly, if I could upvote the above post more than once I certainly would!

I understand both sides it is a video and it’s supposed to be fun, but I also know sometimes the game has a mind of its own it seems and it feels like your fighting it and your opponent at the same time... I lost 4 ranked games tonight; one I played bad, the other was back and forth and my opponent got rewarded and I didn’t in 9th. it sucked, but it was a good game so you move on... Two of them I should’ve won, but the game was game felt like it was doing everything in its power to make me lose, typical stuff we complain about and have seen time and time again and that’s frustrating for a competitive game... Usually I load up another one and hope I get the luck, but losing rating points for things out fo your control is frustrating. So I get it both sides.

That’s a different game— the game I’m talking about was a friendly quit actually. But nice try.

I actually had 2 perfect homers yesterday I was shocked. Cus it rarely gives me a hit on perfect feedback

Minor glitches? No. The game needs a complete overhaul. I’ve played this game for nearly 15 years it’s gotten better in the sense of content and worse in the sense of gameplay.

Sorry, don't believe you. I don't play much 20 at this point. But the claim that perfect rarely gives you hits is such a gross exaggeration. They def fall more then they don't. There are plenty of things to point to on why 20's bad and for some reason you've dug your heels into the sand on a giant exaggeration about perfects.

You can believe what ever you want it is a fact.

Is perfect perfect always an out —no. But it’s About 60% a hit which is a low percentage for a PERFECT contact pci placement. It should be about 85-90 if the ball is in the zone. I think those percentages should change if someone is chasing a bad pitch etc.

I can’t even count how many perfect outs I’ve gotten in this game- it’s a big reason I stopped playing it.

😂😂😂😂 ah look who’s back

First of all, even if it was 60% a hit, (I think it is higher, but that's not the point here), that would hardly qualify as rarely, which is the wording you used in a previous comment.

So wouldn't you call using the word rarely exaggeration?

Yes it was an exaggeration to make a point.

The point is. The game is dull.

Overall to be quite honest...the game is slightly better then it was months ago though I do notice some improvements. Not as many foul tips from any swing at any ball. Which is a positive improvement — I haven’t played the game consistently in awhile until the last few days and it is def a little better then when I stopped playing.

All I want is a competitive game. I want to earn wins and be outplayed for losses. That’s all I ask of this game. I can’t say I’ve felt this game was that was since maybe 17?
