Normally I'm not the type to rant on a forum about a game, nor am I the type to pile on (I can read just how angry other users are with RTTS), but RTTS for this game is so bad that I need to make an exception on both accounts.
I've bought The Show for years and every year I but for RTTS and RTTS only, aside from a little bit of Franchise mode, but I quickly go right back to RTTS after a short amount of time. That's the mode I buy this game for. I do not recognize what I'm playing with the new game. I actually like the idea of being able to be a two-way player, but I also find it ridiculous and annoying that I need to reset a setting such as wearing both batting gloves at the plate several times a night. Maybe I'm actually missing something, but where do I do batting practice in RTTS? Pitching practice is there, why not batting? I also find it blasphemous that I can't learn a 4th and 5th pitch, and those are just some examples of many problems we can all see on this forum.
I'm reading all about integrating RTTS and DD on this forum. I'm not a young gamer (nor am I an old man by any means). I don't do online gaming. I don't do in-game purchases. I am simply not into these card collecting aspects you see in sports games these days. I'm sure it's a good cash cow that a lot of gamers bite the bullet on and fair enough...but that should not mean that people like myself who like to turn on a console and just play a game should be tossed to the woodshed.
Please fix this. Until RTTS is recognizable to me, I will be playing other games and certainly will not be pre-ordering The Show 22.
