I've been a gamer my while life, played every baseball game I could - Intellivison Baseball will always have a special place in my heart - and have played the show for years and years. This year, I have forced myself not to buy the game, but it is a struggle lol. I love Franchise, but it's so neglected and broken for years it's unplayable and constantly a disappointment. The 2nd best mode for me was RTTS, which has now been broken also by forcing you into DD. And I like DD as well, this isn't a knock on that mode. But that's just not my main interest, it's kind of what you have to play because it's the only mode that's fixed/patched/updated, the rest are all given new menus and some other fancy sounding words for [censored]. I know one person not buying doesn't matter, especially going to XBOX this year and all that extra income, but it's just disappointing to me that the game has made me not play baseball anymore. I get the urge to buy the game, then tell myself no, I know I'll just be disappointed. Please fix the modes that made the game great to begin with, DD definitely has its place, but you should be able to afford a few extra people to improve your modes that made the game what it is, and help it realize what it could be if given the love everyone who plays it has for the game.
TLDR. If you miss it you can buy it. Game has been out for three weeks.
@baboonishace_PSN Nice post. I share your sentiment. I did buy it - and I have played it probably too much the past few weeks. Really tried to like it. But very hard to do with the current state of RTTS, which has always been my favorite mode. Love the reference to Intellivision btw. I played the heck out of that game back in Jr. High.
They NBA 2K/Madden'ed the game.
