This is the state of modern gaming, an obviously flawed product is released to the public, the public posts negative feedback, many others in the community mock the negative poster, so nobody fixes the game because enough people express satisfaction despite its objectively mediocre quality.
I’m sorry but the developers really need to investigate their idea of what makes a game fun to play.
There are too many things that happen that are out of the player’s control, and that seriously detracts from the enjoyment of playing MLB.
Perfectly executed pitches either miss the strike zone or float right down the middle regardless of the pitcher’s control and bb/9 attributes, outfielders make way too many errors that you cannot prevent from happening, and contact outcomes are all over the place - sometimes balls in the center of the pci are ‘okay’ and other times it’s a perfect, while balls on the fringe of the inner circle may get ‘good’ contact results. Then the actual outcome from those contact results seems even more arbitrary, square ups and goods are outs too often, okays and jam shots too frequently wind up resulting in soft hits.
These frustrating parts of the game even carry over to offline play, which in previous titles used to provide a reprieve from all the online nonsense. There’s no escape anymore, now the game will aggravate you no matter what mode you choose.
For those of us who have bought MLB the Show every year for the ps3 and ps4, I cannot imagine how you aren’t disappointed in what it has become.
The legendary sinkerballer Mariano Rivera is the obvious choice. His sinker was so good that it became the only pitch he ever threw. When you think of Mariano Rivera you think of the sinker.
Either way I’m sure he will throw a nice sinker.
So I klubered a couple of games in the event and hit a kluber off of his kluber and the guy disklubered so I got the W. Second game my outfielder klubered a routine fly ball so that was frustrating but then his kluber hung a cutter and I klubered it. A fun session of klubering.
Online play has been disappointing for the past three years. Not sure how that can be debated
Well that’s baseball, sometime you hit the ball on the nose for a lazy fly out, and sometimes your very existence gets nullified by unknown powers and you take the L
Please cripple people who dashboard during your home runs. Please do this.
A two hopper that travels straight into the shortstop’s glove, often occurs immediately after hitting one out single.
For me to get off work Friday I’m gonna need something crazy to happen, like some kind of worldwide virus that’s causing state of emergencies
If you’re a lot better than your opponent then you will win. Otherwise it’s a fifty minute coin flip
Guess it’s only my opinion but a typical Albert Pujols prime season dwarfs anything Ryan Howard has ever done
First one I lost 19-3 or something after bean balling their entire lineup several times out of frustration. Second game I stacked lefties vs kluber and won 5-0.
For everybody who complains about the advantage the Yankees have, what is your excuse for the Mets? Same location, same revenue base, same publicity, yet the one team consistently fields a winning team while the other parades Tim Tebow around their minor league facility while getting clobbered on national television?
Are the New York Mets the worst franchise in baseball today, considering financial and geographic advantages?
Didn’t mean to misinform. Never seen a pitchout that puts them on a three ball count. But that’s only my own experience.
They never pitch out once the count reaches two balls. In case you didn’t know already...
That’s pretty bad.
God I hope ohtani is ok. He’s the modern babe Ruth we need him
I wasn’t feeling superior until I read your messages
Don’t cry for him, it’s not a life threatening situation. He might have hurt his throwing arm. Again.
And don’t tell me you never heard the phrase “modern day Babe Ruth.”
