The Top 5 Video Games for Sports Enthusiasts

While we all love to watch our favourite teams and players claw their way to victory, we often wish that we could be more involved in the game. Video games not only provide us with a chance to stimulate our imagination, hopes and dreams, but they also allow us to play the role of a manager or become a team member for the day.

Over the years there have been some amazing video games released for sports enthusiasts. No matter whether you prefer football, hockey, tennis, or basketball, there’s a game for you to choose from. Here are some of the best video games for you to choose from:

1.      Football Manager 2020

If you spend most of your spare accessing live sports streaming, and you think you’ve got what it takes to manage your own team, then Football Manager 2020 is a must-have for you. There’s no better feeling than taking your team to the top of the footballing pyramid.

Football Manager 2020 gives you a compellingly intricate and deep look at how a football club is run and the difficulties football managers face. From hiring and firing players to managing a budget, there are lots of things to consider in this brilliant game. It’s a must-have for any aspiring manager.

2.      Dirt Rally 2.0

Over the last few years, we’ve seen several brilliant rally car games being released from TOCA (Touring Car Championship) to World Rally 2001 – there are lots to choose from! However, Dirt Rally 2.0 has to be one of the best rally simulators of all time.

With its revamped weather system, amazing team, licensed tracks all around the world, vehicle management system and lots more, there’s so much to love about this game. If you’re an off-road enthusiast, then this is the perfect option for you, so long as you’re happy to go without the WRC affiliation.

3.      Lonely Mountains Downhill

While you may not have heard of this game, it is one you definitely need to try. Lonely Mountains Downhill was named the best sports game of 2020. Juxtaposing breath-taking scenery with gruesome deaths, you speed to run a cube-man biker through a range of challenging courses. Each demise is hilarious, brutal, informative and an individual learning experience as you constantly alter your route.

4.      SSX (2012)

SSX has to be one of the best snowboarding games ever made. It features mountains that were created using NASA’s topographical data, as well as over 150 death-defying drops for snowboarders to try. Players also have to be aware of avalanches which can happen at any time. If you like a game that keeps you on your feet, then this is a great choice for you.

5.      Tiger Woods PGA Tour

Tiger Woods PGA Tour is an excellent option for sports enthusiasts who love playing golf. While this game may not seem as intense or as fast-paced as other sports games, it’s a realistic and enjoyable game for sports enthusiasts.

With 25 golfers to pick from, several illustrious courses, and the “Tiger Challenge” to try (which allows players to win cash prizes that they can use to unlock new courses and skill points), this game is an instant crowd-pleaser.

Playing sports video games is the closest most of us will get to being on the pitch or under the big lights on game day. Sports video games let fans simulate their dreams on the field and are extremely popular as a result. There have been some amazing video games for sports enthusiasts over the years. Which one is your favourite?
