The OP must think everyone is the same.
I don't like shaved poozy, but don't go asking why do people like that over bushy ones.
Offline is still fun and there's a lot to do thanks to Parallels.
The AI will drive you nuts, but it's still satisfying.
Remember this one MAJOR point.
A lot of us started gaming when there was no online until around 1999 with NFL 2K on the Dreamcast.
Offline gaming is our roots, so some of us stick to them.

The OP must think everyone is the same.
The OP is right.
Showdown seems rigged in some way.
Some parts are cake, some are just ridiculous.
I know some have beaten the whole thing, but
some things i experienced are just outrageous.
I wish people would stop calling other users
crybabies. Maybe you're just better at push button
baseball than others.
When i go ice skating, i don't call people that hold on
to the boards going slow AF and looking scared scaredy cats.
Just respect someone's right to come on the forums and
express their frustrations?
Someone explain why when I have a man on 2nd and I hit a liner into the outfield, the ball lands down the line, my runner ALWAYS slides into 3rd base even after I select him and send him home before he's even half way to 3rd base? This game is rotten trash...
What about when you have a runner on 2nd. You hit a gapper. He runs back to 2nd base....
I love this game, but playing offline, you notice some super cheap tactics to make the game harder, and it's sickening.
1)The kangaroo turf at EVERY stadium. It's as if they don't want you to get triples. The outfielder let's it go knowing it will bounce over the fence.
2)The 'passed ball/wild pitch' bait. You KNOW if you advance, you're toast. They try this a lot.
3)The unassisted DP. Usually happens at 1B, where you can NEVER pull one off, but they tried one at 3B yesterday!
4)The "closer than it should've been" play at first. I usually don't charge grounders, I pre-load the throw, but no matter the speed of your opponent, almost every play you just get the runner by a few steps. As you know, you can't see that runner until they're close to the base, so I think there's a morphing effect, where they speed up the runner, but you can't see it until said runner is crossing the bag.
5)The nonchalant outfield throw. You can have a 90+ arm outfielder out there, but at times, you'll see them let up a bit to give the A.I. runner an extra step. Sort of a subtle double-clutch. A guy with 48 speed should not score fairly easy from 2nd BASE vs. a Diamond fielding OF.
6)The perfectly played carom off the outfield wall. Even though they're the ROAD team, they seem to know exactly where to be for that perfect carom off the wall at a stadium they rarely play at!
7)Pickoffs. You can never get one, but they always seem to get you, which leads into....
8)Rundowns. You can NEVER win one, although I did once recently. The animations in these are awful. No matter how you delay your run back, they always catch you.
9)Destroy the CPU, they trot out the Sinkerballers! So many times I've had big innings only to score nada the next because they bring in pitchers with the OP pitch in the game.
10) Assisted baserunning. How many times has my runner at 2nd froze even though a ball is clearly going to split the outfielders. Run, MF!!!
There may be others I can't think of, bored here at work.
I see why many only play Online. If I could hit consistently, I'd be there. I'm also terrible at baserunning.
I guess this means the game engine needs an overhaul, or we need a competing baseball game.
It's like they insult your baseball intelligence.
What in the world is up with the doves or whatever bird they appear to be circling in CF like a dang halo? It’s driving me nuts and depending the field and timing of the pitcher, makes it hard to pick up the baseball occasionally.
Randy Johnson knew what to do......
He hit a nuke on his first swing, then in the next inning he promptly overran an easy pop foul (even though he was firmly in the blue).
So it’s exactly how I remember 1993 and 1994. Thank you, SDS.
Did he pop a Nugenix in the on deck circle? 🤪

Charlie Blackmon just said “it took me 37 years to hit 207 home runs. So I’ll be 140 when I reach 700.”
If he played me, it wouldn't take that long!
He ALWAYS homers or gets hits off me in vs. cpu games!
A lot of them are not worth selling at this point.
These moments for moonshot should literally be 8 presses of my A button on my controller. 120+ power on each hitter and the BP pitcher.
Anything more than that is just silliness on SDS part.
Why am I on my 5th attempt at Troy glaus?
This is why moments are despised so much.
Ha. 15th with 2 of these
Thank goodness there's only 4.
It is a bit harder to hit homers when you're trying to!
I was hoping Retro Finest Greinke would come through, but nope!
Every time my pitcher came up, I pinch hit for him, but wound up with MS Longoria in center, oops! He promptly flubbed 2 fly balls
I though Ely de La Cruz was what I call a 'Triple dipper,' 'Speedster, Switch Hitter, & Tall guy,' but i think one didn't register under his 3 qualifications...
